I have a charge card at walmart and they carry the Remington 870 , is 870 not a good model or somthing? I think walmart carry's fine shotguns, Im not saying the best but for what im using it for will do me just fine. I called all my local gun shops and they charge way more for the same exact thing....

It says how they are mean to there employees (who don't have to work there). How they don't want unions in there stores. Sexual descrimination. This is just a small part of what they say but personaly I don't give a damn what the articles say stuff is cheaper so I shop there.

Well thats how I look at it as well, cheaper gets my money. Just because Remington is being sold at walmart doent mean its a walmart brand with poor quality. Remington is Remington. Am I right or am I right?

I called a local gun shop today and asked them about buying at walmart and he went on and on about how the remingtons jam from walmart and is the lowest cheapest quality you can get, then I asked him what was different from the remington 870 he sold camparred to walmarts remingtons. I asked does his come customized or something to make it not jam? He was all choked up and did not have a answer. He did say his came with choke tubes.. ahhhh so does walmarts shotguns buddy. Its the same exact thing except for the price..

I'd get the model I WANTED 1st. then I'd shop it a bit to decide where to buy it.

moot point in CA though. I'm torn on walmart..get some stuff there, but at the same time voted down a new stroe in my zip..no way I want that traffic near me and i'm opposed to the new state run (I mean walmart) store.

click on the "Big Box Mart" movie for a sad but true laugh.

Whats wrong with buying guns from wal-mart its cheaper for the same thing.
I got a real nice deal on a Mossberg 535 from Walmart, and it was cheaper than anywhere in town. True, Walmart drives out small businesses, but in the small town I used to live in, the 3 grocery stores in town were all owned by the same company (family) price gouged BIG TIME (like the cheapest loaf of bread was $1.25). And you couldn't find pop for cheaper than $6.99/case, ($5.99) on sale. You might say that is only a few bucks, but over a year, you can bet it all adds up, especially when you have more than 1 or 2 mouths to feed.

How is it cheaper with that 19% credit card? If you want cheaper, buy used. Oh I forgot, no credit card. Henry Ford was right.

A lot of times local stores will match prices from Wal-Mart. On certain things. I always get my tires from our local guy but I call Wal-Mart to get the price and then I ask him if he will meet it, and he always does. I also brought a gun that way at our local gun store. But that's a little extra effort for me , but the satisfaction of not buying it from Wal-Mart exceeds.

Hell, why don't we discuss something a little less controversial than Wal-Mart...like abortion. :?

I shop where I want to regardless of the propaganda on the Internet. Hell, we all know that if it's on the Internet it must be true, right?

I'm willing to bet the same people who complain about companies like Wal-Mart pushing out the little guy shop the Internet all the time.

I don't hear anybody *****ing about Amazon putting retailers out of business, but you can bet yer *** they have and do...

Oh, baby, did you nail it Red-leg!!! I wonder how many mom-and-pop bookstores went under when Amazon.com started selling books??

And do these same people show up at Mom-and-Pop's grocery store and demand that they pay their employees a "living wage" and provide health insurance for them...all 2 or 3 of them. I think not.

I buy most of my hunting stuff at Bass Pro. Since their prices are usually the same as Wal-mart on the same items, are they just as evil?

Yeah, nothing like a first class gun shop :roll: that also sells potato chips, TV's, motor oil, rap CD's, greeting cards, tooth paste, vacuum cleaners, tomato plants, and Tampons. :shock:

I prefer to shop where the guy behind the counter at least knows his muzzle from his butt. :p

Wal-marts sell tons of Remingtons, and is one of Remingtons biggest buyers, I'm sure all the union employees at Remington would like you to quit bad mouthing Wal-mart.
