When I worked for Corp Store the items we sold you could not buy the same thing from wal mart, target or wherever and it may be the same today. Go to wal mart and write down the model of a TV and then go to Electronic Express or Best Buy and see if you can find the same model. However, you will find simular models but usually not the same.

So if you can find the same product for less we will match, would never work where I worked.

I bought their tires for years and had 2 blow outs- both with WM tires. Never again! Their tires are seconds for sure 100%.

I can't believe you guys have actually found a Wal Mart with a gun counter anymore. I would not buy one from Wal Mart on the basis that they have taken the gun counters out of many of their stores. Maybe this was a strategic business decison based on sales data and ROI but I would more likely believe that it is a slow process of dropping the sales of guns nationwide.

From what I've seen, most of the ones that took out their gun counter did bring them back. I know there are some in Davidson County that still don't have them.

There are probably 5 or 6 Wal Marts in Shelby county I think 2 may have gun counters. The one closest to me had one until a couple of years ago when they redid the sporting goods section.

BlountArrow nailed it. Wal*Mart has enough buying power that they can order things they way they want them, to get the price point where they want it.

For example, this tire is produced by Goodyear FOR Wal*Mart, and ONLY for Wal*Mart:



Got a set of these on my grand cherokee and LOVE EM! as for the land terrains the other guy was talkin about I had them on a bronco and you slide in the front yard! they sucked! come to think about it that may have helped with the 2 barrel rolls it took... as for guns ive got an older savage110 243 from wally world bought in 99' I believe, that will hold its own against anything else in the safe! if its a good price, its what you want and it goes boom when you pull the trigger then just shoot the dammed thing!

To think Wal*Mart can't call up a supplier and tell them what they want it a little naive.

I don't believe the recievers, barrels, triggers, etc. at WalMart are different with the gun being presented as the very same gun a local gunshop sells. You have to have certain qualities in the steels used for those parts that can't be shortcut in manufacturing such as the alloy you begin with or heat treat and just the basic machining time to fabricate the dimensions. Any differences in say a Remington 700 at WalMart and a local gun shop would be something obvious such as I mentioned above and would be indicated in the model number/packaging.


True that the receiver, trigger and barrel are probably the very same as you will get on a gun shop gun but it's the "details" that get cut. Simple things like coatings and bluing. We have a 870 youth gun that rusts if you remove it from a humidity controlled room. The finish on the stock wore off in the first season of hunting. It has never been abused. Always wiped down and lubricated properly. So either Remingtons finishes suck or Wally went and cut some corners with this thing.
I have looked at the catalogs that WalMart orders guns from in the past when talking about what they could get with a salesman. They were just the standard manufacturers part numbers.
