I'll never buy a gun from Walmart, never.
Why is that? What is wrong with Wal Mart?
I've seen AR's at Dicks, as well as a lot of other guns gathering dust because they're usually overpriced. Our local one doesn't sell handguns anymore and has drastically reduced their gun department since taking over for Galyans Sporting Goods.
The most expensive AR I saw was a S&W and it was $1100.00. Though it did look like it had some addons, like what appeared to be a vented, railed handguard, and I want to say I saw a muzzle break, but not sure. Also pretty sure it was not an M&P Sport, which as I understand doesn't come with a forward assist or dust shield, this one definitely had both. I do believe that they had one slightly less expensive S&W as well. I think the least expensive AR they have right now is around $700-$800, but I couldn't tell what brand it was. After quickly checking the S&W site, this comes close to the $1100.00 model I saw. Might not be exactly right, but close enough.
Just get something and shoot the pants off of it.
They are curiously more expensive, guns have dust and/or corrosion in them, customer service in the store is appalling...should I continue.
Kenny, no falling prices round here. Only inflated price tags that would make my LGS owner blush. We are talking nearly 20% on some rifles, others are not as bad, but add to the cost the other reasons I mentioned above to kenken, and you'll see my disdain. Dicks is not as bad, and they're willing to help a customer and let you ogle the goodies.
Get an AK. Half the price, unfortunately half as accurate, but twice the gun. I do enjoy my AR, but the AK is the HD/truck, SHTF gun. The AR? It's a paper puncher and occasional coyote gun. Something about a 30 round mag dump of 7.62x39 that costs $6 that brings a sile to the face.
No AKs at my Walmart though.
I'm here in New Jersey
Totally dependent on the LGS. Mine is amazing, and they sell as cheap as they can, making up for it in bulk sale, and believe me you, they sell alot.
Oddly, I live in a "free" state, but the Walmarts aren't pricing accordingly. Example:
I lucked into a Sig 522 at Cabelas for $299. The price was a mistake, but they had no choice. Regular price was $499.
Same gun at Walmart, but with 10 round mag with no flash hider or rail attachments...$527 before tax. I found this abhorring to say the least.
As for Dicks, I am happy to say they have bolt guns much cheaper than Cabelas, and it's a shorter drive for me. Gas is still hovering around $3.25 here.
Don't you mean "Joisy"?
