I hate Walmart too and have never purchased a firearm from them. That said, I have purchased a lot of ammo due to better prices. We shoot every weekend and couldn't afford to do so at the LGS prices, they are sometime 50% higher which is crazy IMO. I refuse to pay HD ammo prices for range ammo.

I dont mind paying the LGS $30-40 extra for a gun but when there is a $100+ difference its a no brainer

The only ammo I buy anymore is just .22LR's.... I just make everything else..
For some reason, whenever I go look for ammo, I get the same dumb blank stare from the LGS as I do from the people at Wal-mart.... (Seems 6.5/7.7 Jap boggles everybody.. )

Honestly, I get the same reaction when I asked for 7.62x54R. The guy at walmart handed me a box of 7.62x39mm and asked if this is what I meant.

I agree it's the reason I became a FFL. The shops here were rude, expensive, but I've also seen the owner side of the business now. So I have both perspectives and for the 3 months I've been operational...lol...man the nerve of some people.

Do you have a web site? How can we order stuff from you if we want something?
