    I had a very annoying experience in walmart this morning. I went to buy a box a 30-30, I get to the counter I buy a box. And then I notice its 30-06. I tell him this and I end up waiting for 40 minutes for a manager to come and help exchange it for a box of 30-30. Just a little venting. Its been a bad day...

    Ya gotta love the "well trained, professional employees" of WallyWorld!! However you need to check the box BEFORE buying!:D

  3. What blows my mind is the fact people keep expecting great service from a big box discount retailer AND THEN POST ON THE DAMN GUN BOARD EVERY TIME THEY DON'T GET IT!

    My dad and I stopped buying from Wal-Mart and switched to Cabelas after a similar situation happened when he bought a box of .40 and they gave him 9mm. Also just the other week I went to buy a knife while my mom was buying school supplies for my brothers and they refused to sell it to me becuase I am not 21, the funny part about it was that I had a 4" blade in my pocket and a 6" blade in my boot. I don't remember there being a law of such in AZ!!!

    What do you expect from THE HOME OF EVERYDAY LOW WAGES. I do feel sorry for the people that have to work there.

    Am I the only one here who thinks it's silly to carry a 6" knife in one's boot?

    Years ago I purchased a Ruger 10/22 at Wal-Mart took about an hour and a half I complained and they knock off another $25
    off the price but I admit I never went there to buy another rifle.
    Ammo,never had a problem.

    You hit the nail on the head there...plus they know nothing about guns or ammo one day I went there to buy .22's and some .45's when I went to ring out the employee asked me if the .22's were for a rifle or handgun so I said both...the employee looked at me like I said something in chinese. I told them a lot of ammo is for both rifle and pistol.

    I wonder how you would have looked at her if she expected you to know what a SKU or an endcap was?

    The same happened to me for some 9mm. My reply was "Neither they are for my shotgun."

    Lady's response: "Oh, okay."

    Another WalMart Bashing Thread

    I've been waiting many days to bash WalMart again. Thank you for starting this thread. I stopped buying ammo at WM because the sporting goods area is usually unattended.

    I now reload most of my ammo, and the rest is purchased online or from Academy.

    Doesn't a mod's signature say: "Thinking of starting a Walmart thread? Don't."

    I dunno. I think there is a boycott on Academy. They don't treat gun folks too gently...

    Academy sucks (open carry story)

    Ya, low wages...are you kidding? There are places that pay worse than wal-mart. And why feel bad for those people, they chose their jobs. They don't "have" to work there like you said.

    Please think before posting.

    I usually have good experiences there, and just accept the poor service when it comes to ammunition. The only think that happens to me is some guy trying to sell me the wrong ammo.

    Me: Could I have a box of the wincehster 150gr. 7mm rem mag ammo?
    Worker: Sure you don't want 9mm instead?

    That's about it.
