    You should have told him you were buying it so that he could clean the ***** out from between his ears.

    "ANYTHING firearm or ammo related needed a permit"? So, if You were to purchase...........Ear protection; Safety glasses; Book on Reloading; Belt; Flashlight etc. They would ask for a permit???!!! Glad You made the post on here so everyone can see what this particular store is doing/asking.
    (need a Smiley with the propeller ontop of the hat....whizzzzzzzzzzzz)
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

    I hate Dicks. However, I agree that they do have decent ammo sales if you buy buy the case. I do. I can usually get WWB for $7.99 a box when buying a ase on sale. That is about as good as it gets anymore. I have also been ale to buy my 20ga AA orSTS for $5.99 a box/case on sale. Pretty decent.

    I buy enough ammo and spend enough money doing it that I get a $10 off coupon every 3-6 months. The kicker, you can't use it to buy ammo. IT"S THE ONLY THING I BUY THERE!

    I get asked occasionally by the guy at the gun counter for my pistol license. There is no state law requiring it, even though they are adamant that there is. I have argued, but for the price, I am willing to take the abuse occasionally. I have walked out without ammo after berating the manager, but I will go back after their shift changes and buy it anyway.

    I think you will find the reason ****'s as well as WalMart and others stopped selling hand guns at the start of Brady is because in the beginning rifles and shotguns were not required in background checks. A couple years later they were also included. Their decision to drop handguns was due to Government regulations and not because of anti-gun attitudes.
    Now the Cleaning kit ordeal is just plain insane and probably a case of an uniformed, or maybe "over informed", clerk.

    Our Walmart in Lagrange, Ga has even stopped carrying long guns.

  8. ****'s

    My wife and I belong to a website called My3Cents.com. It is a site for people to post reviews about businesses and products, whether good or bad. Recently, there have been a numbers of complaints about ****'s, one involving removing spare spools from very expensive fishing reels, apparently so they can be sold separately for more money. I have not seen one favorable post about ****'s, so if it ever came down to a trip to ****'s or Cabela's, believe me, Cabela's gets my business. We have a good Cabela's location here in Lacey, where you can get everything from muzzle-loading lube to a Boston Whaler on a trailer.
    A man without a gun is a subject; a man with a gun is a citizen.

    They announced that they were dropping gun sales in stores that it was not economically sound. All the big stores care about is one thing only and that's the bottom line. If it don't turn a profit or even a large enough profit, it's gone Unfortunately that's business. All the Walmarts and K-Marts around hear carry a good supply of rifles and shotguns as well as accessories and the Walmarts are a good place to buy handloading supplies. K-Mart did drop handgun ammo sales due to political pressure from the Brady Bunch which is why I shop Walmart and shun K-Mart unless they have something I want at a price I can't refuse. We all have to look at the bottom line occassionally. Stores like Sportsman's Warehouse, Cabela's, Gander Mountain, etc. Have done a lot to influence the big box department stores on there decision to quit carrying guns, along with Government red tape and fear of BATFE "BULL".

    I did talk to one of the gentlemen in sporting goods. He said Walmart was only allowing stores in the top ten percent in sales to continue selling long guns.
