Bahl's answer was similar to the one given by Gus Whitcomb, a spokesman for Wal-Mart -- the world's largest retailer -- which has stores in Rockford, Loves Park and Belvidere.

"No, we do not plan to," Whitcomb said. "We carry firearms that are appropriate for hunting."

Whitcomb said that means rifles and shotguns. Handguns don't make the cut and the firearms that were once banned wouldn't either.

"It's been Wal-Mart's focus to cater to the sportsman," Whitcomb said.

"It's not even something we considered."



Well, I didn't really need ANOTHER reason to not shop at Wal-Mart, but I guess I found one anyway.

As has been pointed out many times here, I support their right to do as they please as a business. As is MY rights never to spend another fucking cent with them.

Why did you single out Wal*Mart for doing this will ignoring that other gun stores are also doing the same?

The Ruger Redhawk is a good deer killer and so is the Thompson Contender.

Are you sure?

I went to WM and asked them once. They don't sell AR rifles.

Except in Alaska.

I know they sell mini 14's and mini 30's. My friend works in the sporting goods area of a walmart in Oklahoma where I'm from. He was going to order a mini 30 from them, never got around to it though.

You are correct. You cannot order ARs or handguns from Wal-Mart. If you want to know what you can order, check out their firearms catalog.

Why do you guys shop at Wal*Mart? Geez I can't stand that place. It's filled with ragged, weathered, beat to hell, unhealthy, fat or death camp skinny, poor trash. Why? Why does Wal*Mart attract the rejects of humanity? These people treat Wal*Mart like it's some kind of carnival or something.
