I just think it sucks that stores are having to choose sides politically. These are some strange times we're living in.

Walmart only carries basic models of almost all their guns. LGS need to focus on selling guns walmart doesn't carry. People blame Walmart for driving LGS out of business. Being to lazy to drive down to walmart to record the models they carry and prices is what runs the LGS out of business. Oh yah, the clerk at the LGS is to lazy to point out features his gun has the walmart guns don't. They just make blanket statements like walmart carries defective guns. We all know that is a bald face lie.

Sears & Robuck was the largest gun dealer in the world for decades. J.C. Penny was a go to for good gun deals. Montgomery Wards was the best deal on Milsurp in the country.

They folded and dumped the gun Biz. when the Liberals called them the "Merchants" of death. The Big Box store really care little about 2nd A rights in America. They will deal you out very fast.

I also travel extensively building/remodeling WM's and have lots of opportunity to check there gun prices whenever I do a store in Southern Oregon or Eastern Washington and there prices are only "marginally" lower than our Portland Metro Area FFL's.

Your "scalpers" need gun sales to survive, WM does not, and can drop them anytime there Board of Directors deems it so.

We've already seen "supposed" sporting goods retailers pull black rifles?

Thinking WM in the gun business is a good thing for 2A smacks of youth and a weak understanding of commerce.
