    If you really want Wal-Mart to suffer for their actions, buy stock in the company, then complain about poor customer service in front of everyone at the yearly shareholders meeting. The Wall Street Journal and others will be there, reporting on every word said. If Wal-Mart's stock drops a nickel because of the bad reports, you've cost them MILLIONS. Only then will they sit up and take notice.

    I think what amuses me the most is...

    how the wailing and gnashing of teeth at Wal-mart is primarily from people who do not shop there, would not shop there if they were on fire and Wal-mart sold fire extinguishers and will never shop there.

    I like the guy who said he has never bought a gun or ammo there and now will not go there! Hmmmm, I guess Wal-Mart will have to close up shop.

    Ooooh, they are going to videotape you... Big freaking whoop. The Assistant manager has to escort your gun out like its a live cobra.... Big Freaking whoop.
    I don't buy guns at Wal-mart because they have nothing I want. If they did and it was a good price, then I live by their rules. At the end of the day, I have a new rifle.

    I do buy ammo there and at the two stores I frequent, I have never had a problem, never been asked for ID, asked what gun it was for, or been hassled in any way. I have never been beaten with a rubber hose and the clerks, while not that knowledgeable about guns in general are able to respond to simple commands like "gimme a few boxes of that Federal 22 in the brown box". To be honest, that is all I need from them. I don't need a long discussion of the merits of the .300 Whisper round.

    So, if you don't like Wal-Mart, great, shop with your feet. But, they are the ONLY major box store to even carry guns and ammo. I think thats pretty good considering all the antis that are constantly on them.

    I have purchased a lot of ammo at Wally - World here in East Tennessee and never been asked about the purchase.

    I am ready just in case things change but so far so good. The clerks were men young and old and women (age unknown and not even attempted to find out) and never a problem. I guess they are used to ammo purchases and know better than to get something going.

    Never bought a firearm at wal-mart and probably never will.

    But I took a trip to Oklahoma and took my brother and kids out shooting. By the time I got to my sisters place I was out of 357 and had to buy factory ammo (ouch).

    Me and my wife went into wal-mart and as we got in line I told my wife watch the look on the gals face. She asked what it was for pistol or rifle, and I told her sub-machine gun. She look at me and said uh. I repeated my self and she wasn't sure what to do. So I told her it didn't matter cause by the time I was done shooting it would probably be shoot out of both.

    Hey if you don't like wal-mart's policies then don't shop there, or ask to speak to a manager or bug corporate. But please do not give the cashier a hard time just because you feel like it. They don't have a choice in the matter since it's company policy and if they don't follow it they'll probably be fired. It's the kind of people who like to harass the peons of a company (any company private or corp) just because the peons can't do anything lest they lose their job, that make me want to keep a bat near my register some days.

    P.S. I am a wal-mart peon who would much prefer you take your shenanigans to someone who can actually change things like a manager. Also remember a company is made of individual people not robots and sometimes these people make mistakes, we should focus on correcting these mistakes and not drawing generalizations.

    What's funny is their policies seam to be different form store to store. Until someone close to me has a better deal on target ammo the Walmart WWB I will be shopping there.

    I got the same canned message - with the name changed, of course.
