Can't help but wonder if all of them stats are true. Wally is impressively huge no doubt but is it really that big? Probably! And they still had no 9mm or .22 bulk at mine today, lol.

I'm doubting some of those stats also. I would need to see some verifiable proof. "Most employees don't speak
English" I find that very hard to believe.

I would believe all of that. Also I was in my Walmart randomly today and they had a lot of Blazer Brass in 9mm. They were keeping them of the shelves though because there were a couple of guys that had been going in and buying it all. They had bulk Remington UMC in .40 too but I didn't have enough money with me.

I don't understand them keeping off the shelf, why would Wal Mart care if one person bought it all at one time, they are in the business to sell products, I wouldn't think they would care who bought what or how much they bought..

Might want to ask Primal about this but when I was in Alb it seemed more people at Wally World were not English speakers.

I just looked, and yep, it's true. All of it. My only question is how the hell is wal-mart stock still so cheap when it grosses so much money every year?

that is a very good question. maybe investing buying stocks from wally world is worth looking at. they are going strong even in this tough economy.
