I was in there yesterday checking out several 1911 and I ask the guy if they have any BC 10/22 25round mags, or Bushmaster nonbans AR. He said that corporate is unsure if they will offer ANY prior LEO/PREguns or accessories...WTF

It seem to be a trend with some Bigger companies/manufactures not willing to offer fun stuff since the ban has died.
The smaller shops seem to have no problem wanting to sell noban items.. I guess I should just stop shopping at these political correct places..

Anyone else hearing the same thing

Sportsman's Warehouse has the worst customer service I've ever seen. Back in early August I asked them for a quote on a couple Bushy uppers, lowers, and complete rifles. I was told one week. I called a week later, two weeks later, three weeks later, nothing. They still haven't gotten back to me. I ended up buying from a smaller shop who knows their stuff.

They might also be concerned about keeping track of where they can and can’t legally ship the things.

Remember, the term “non-ban” isn’t really correct in states such as California.


Edited to add: Oops! I missed the word “guns” in your first post. I guess they wouldn’t be mailing those anyway!

Note that most won't sel LEO marked ammo to the public either for exactly the same reasons. I would bet that once the normal supply channels are running again, they will stock what consumers want to buy. It is very early and certainly too early to call.



I agree with this. Once the stuff that is marked 'LEO/Military only' is gone, you will probably see fewer of these problems.

No "hi-cap" Glock magazines at any of the local Sportsman's Warehouse stores yet.

I stopped going there when I heard one of their employees a short while back - a "hunter" - say that there is no reason for a Bayonet lug or any magazine greater than 5 rounds. "That's all you need for huntin". "I don't know what kind of person would want a bayonet".

I would, but I end up spending all of my money on jerky and Beanie Babies before I get to the tables with guns.

Plenty of other places to go. They have had a bad rep for years anyways.

Back at the end of July I went into my local Sportsmen's Warehouse to get a quote on a Bushmster lower. I had to send an e-mail to the corportae office after two weeks to final get a price out of them. I had them order it. I knew that was going to be a mistake but I had $150 in gift certificates to use up. They told me it would take a week to ten days. Four weeks later it finally got here. I hope no one ever gives me gift certificates for there again.
