A picture of the ammo would make an awesome tribute to the policy change

It was *EVERYONE* =)

38 (?) signatures and however many phone calls/emails from everyone!!

They couldn't ignore us forever, and we proved that with today's policy reversal


A small victory in the big picture, but it just goes to show what a few individuals with a PASSION for this country can accomplish if they simply don't give up and say "screw it"

Great Job All! Especially PPC!

I won't personally buy guns from any big box chain because any "publically traded" company is one mass shooting away from droping gun sales as "business decision".

However, given ^^THIS^^ reversal of policy I will now check them out for ammo and attire needs.

Tack
