    probably in teh areas where they dont sell enough guns to cover their costs of keeping them, smart move. They are just appealing to the surrounding demo.

    I think this is a preemptive move to avoid being held liable for the idiot that decides to kill his wife with a gun he bought from walmart, as this seems to be the way congress is headed to allow the seller of the gun to be held liable. Any other reason is just mask what's really going on so you don't actually have an opinion on the subject and let congress and walmart do what they wish when they feel like it.

    its most likely because the cost of stocking and keeping overhead is rediculous because in those stores i doubt they sell any.

    I agree with the cost of stocking, I live in central NC and I dont see the wal-marts removing their gun section for any reason. Almost everybody I know has at least two rifles they bought from Wal-Mart.

    exactly, and the places they are pulling the guns from are probably mostly middle to high middle class areas where the demo doesnt use guns, and use exercise equipment more.

    its the same in NJ. handguns require you to be 21 and do a bunch of paperwork and shit. rifles you need to be 18 and have cash. and theres a walmart here too, not sure if it sells guns but dick's does.....

    wally world doesnt sell pistons, theres too much trouble to go thru to get one. in MD you have to have the statepolice do a background check on you. long guns on the other hand is a run your DL# and SS# give them cash and 10 mins later youre out the door.


    Wallyworld has all kinds of ammo from 9mm .40 .45. 357. 12g 20g and so on.....

    WTF are you talking about celerity? I think I paid $129 for my ruger 10/22. IMO not bad at all.
