Thread: Irony at Wal*Mart

I wonder if she might see the irony, what she might have said or done, had she known that the customer and spouse were cc'ing? So, what is the purpose of Wal*Mart's policy?
    Academy Sporting Goods did the samething to me 2 months ago when I bought a Bersa Thunder 380. When the manager met me at the gun counter to escort me to checkout I asked him if he needed to take possession of my CCW (S&W M&P .40) and carry it outside with the gun in the box since it was locked and loaded. I can understand carrying the gun to the cashier to pay for it, but not all the way to my truck. He would not explain why.

    The frequecies licenced to your local Walmart and various other business users can usually be found at Scanner Frequencies. Remember at Walmart they consider your security a laughing matter.

    Last time I was at Wal-mart, many of the employees were using Motorola Talkabout FMRS radios.

    after reading all of the posts, it makes me feel lucky... when i buy a gun (usually at the local scheel's store) i get to fondle the thing all the way out the door... from the moment the paperwork starts til i walk out the door... i suppose knowing the guy i buy my guns from personally probably works to my advantage, but i believe store policy is around the same as what all you guys have been saying...
