    Just saw this story. Looks like they caved to political pressure. That's about the only reason I would go into a Walmart ...

    Saw a NYT story that clarified they will slso discontinue sales of .223/5.56 ... that's what they mean by "short barrel rifle ammo." Morons.

    No more open carry in their stores either!

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/03/the-full-memo-from-walmarts-ceo-about-pulling-back-on-gun-sales.html

    That is, "Walmart is also asking customers at Walmart and Sam’s Club to no longer openly carry firearms in stores, in states where 'open carry' is allowed, unless authorized law enforcement officers are present."

    It will be interesting to see how they will enforce that unless they put up 30.07 signs. Yes, a manager could walk the store and "ask" people to leave, but is that effectively "giving notice?" Some would argue that it is, but if given a choice then refusing to do so, what happens then?

    And how is someone suppose to know if "authorized law enforcement officers are present?!?"

    I haven't bought any ammunition other than 22lr from Walmart in 20 years.

    I have rifles chambered in 9x19 and .45 acp and 45LC, as do a lot of other people. Likewise, there are rifles chambered in just about every 'rifle' caliber/round made....

    Well it's effictively, but not efficiently.

    Everyone should start hand loading their own ammo!

    Sad to see them cave like that. I have bought very little gun-related from them in years, but this just makes me want to avoid their stores. The conceal carry "request" is just stupid. They did such a good job of protecting their customers in their store, why would I have a problem with it?

    Just cancelled my account with them and will not be going to their stores anymore....Didn't Dicks Sporting good store do this a few years back? Oh well. if all of us speak out with actions, this will have an effect on them.
