    I was in Fred Meyers off Cornelius Pass today and was surprised to see that the now sell firearms. They had quite a big selection of both rifles and handguns. That being said their prices were some I the highest I've ever seen. Some were reasonable (sr22 pistol for $320) but most were well over what you'd pay at a LGS down the road.

    They were also selling ammo and were fully stocked up on all calibers. 9mm 50rds Remington was $14.

    Is this new for Freddies? I've never heard of one selling firearms before.

    There are a few in Eugene that sell firearms and ammunition. They also tend to have a basic selection of accessories.

    But hey, don't ya love it when you find more places to get guns 'n ammo?

    Fred Meyers in Hazel Dell (Just north of Vancouver) used to sell guns and ammo back in the 80s.

    Haven't seen anything there since then.

    Good store otherwise.

    By off Cornelius Pass do you mean the one next to 26, Hillsboro Sports Complex, and McMenamins?

    Just like they used to be, I wish BiMart would go back to selling handguns too.

    Never even thought to look for Guns and Ammo at the Grocery Store. I can see it now, honey I stopped at the store on the way home and picked up Milk, Bread, Eggs, Bacon and a Ruger SR1911...

    I noticed the Fred Meyer in Tumwater is also selling guns/ammo now. I also noticed how their prices were really high. That being said, the next time my wife says "let's go shopping at Fred Meyer" I won't complain quite as much.

    I wonder if you can use your monthly Fred Meyer rewards points towards guns and ammo. We get anywhere from $12-$15 a quarter. That's at least 1 box of ammo for free. I'll take that.

    You must be in Newport ;) We build fixtures for Fred Meyer and all the stores everybody is listing have all recently been or going through a remodel. The trend seems to be adding the gun sections in a major remodel. Between senior discounts and rewards, you can save some bucks.

    I used to live up in Anchorage and you could pick up anything from a 10/22 to a S&W .500. Thought it was weird when I got to WA and there were no firearms...

    Do these Freddy's that carry guns now have a full time employee standing there, or do you have to push the call button for assistance? What is the selection like?
