Well I just went to two different local Walmart and noticed that neither one had any firearms...just airsoft! The sporting goods manager told me that walmart as a whole will soon stop selling firearms nationwide. Not surd how true this is, but it sucks... Reason I think it sucks? According to some sources, they are the largest retailer of guns in this country. Of course, they have hundreds of "gun shops" in every state, or most states. Less retailers = less competition = higher prices.
