This IS a retail thing here folks! Walmart thought there would be a market for guns so they went to Winchester, Remington, Savage and Mossberg and TOLD THEM WHAT THEY WOULD PAY for their guns. Sooooo, the company's took al their cull wood and steel and made some guns for Walmart.

These gun manufacturers made their point! YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!

Now, Walmart won't do anything small and needs to have a certain population base to build a store so you don't see WM in rural America. Only in and around the big city. Big city folk don't sport-shoot or hunt so the guns just sit there.

Retail Code:

"shelf rent is high so an item must turn over six times per month to make it worth stocking."

(your stock, ***2 boxes or 12 boxes whatever is on the shelf*** must be restocked six times every month it is in season!)

That is how a store makes money.

Guns sales are not a profitable in the city unless there is no paperwork attached to it. Walmart should have done this long ago but the tax write-off was too great!

Steve, your story about carrying a gun through a WM store makes me laugh! You should have ran through the store, screaming & hollering. Then give the customer his gun and jump in your car and take off nice and easy. The 911 operators would have a nightmare from all the cell phone calls!!!

Then when you got home, call the store and tell them you quit because some mad-man chased you out with a gun. LOL

"What do you need all of those bullets for? Doesn't it only take one??" or when you buy 22lr.."Is that for a pistol or a rifle?"


Just make it very clear "it's none of your ******* business, is it?" and the politely ask to see the manager. Then ask the manager if there he/she has a problem with you buying a LEGAL PRODUCT THEY SELL?

B E C A U S E , walmart TELLS the manufacturer what they are willing to pay for their product.
Earl the quality is very different! You may not see the difference but I have. The wood used on firearms going to walmart is second rate stuff that used to be tossed out.

Also, anything that never before would pass muster with Remington's Quality Control for "fit & finish" is no longer parted out but instead being matched up with the lesser wodd and sent to the wonderful folks who try to tell them how to price their product!


Was it RUBBERMAID that walmart put out of business???

Go ahead and buy at walmart but I don't want to hear any whining when your job disappears and companies like Winchester go under.
