    Walmart now sells the Bushmaster M4A3 .223 REM 16" Patrol Carbine.

    Their description includes: "Modern repeating rifle...Reliable action...Outstanding value "

    Wood Village has a limited stock. Happy Valley store apparently wants to stay happy:D, so doesn't sell them.

    I couldn't find a price.

    I think it was about 897 or something for the bushmaster.

    What got me was the "modern repeating rifle" part.

    Who knows? Maybe they'll branch out to higher end stuff later.

    if you didn't see the "modern" part would you have imagined the crank operated gatlin gun from the cowboy era?

    They were solid company back in the days, now their quality control has been way down. Also many other good companies to go with now days.

    I agree with this but Im always happy to see any major store starting to sell firearms. I don't like walmart either but the more stores selling firearms the better it is for us.

    K-mart did cut the half of firearms inventory. :(

    Hope business picks up again and bring more selections down the road.

    I'll never, ever shop at walmart. It wouldn't matter if they had 9mm for $.05 a round.

    I see no reason not to shop at Walmart because if we keep buying Chinese goods maybe they'll continue to accept our little slips of worthless paper in trade and the Ponzi can keep going a little longer.

    I like Colt AR's but that's because I used it on patrol. Colt's are great rifles. They cost a little more but they hold their value. AR's have come a long way though, there are other manufacturer's out building great AR's.

    I too am not a big Walmart fan but from time to time I catch myself wondering in the store like a zombie lol. I usually get ammo from Walmart on my way out to the boonies to go shooting. I tell you one thing.... if I start seeing MR. Napolitano's (TSSA Ogre) face on TV monitors I am gonna stop going there. I don't care what brand they sell but as long as they sell firearms I am happy.

    I think its great that WM is offering AR15s. On the flip side I have problems supporting corporations with questionable reputations, and you can find a MUCH better quality mil spec AR for the same price if not a little less then the bushies.

    You guys got me thinking so I went out and pulled out the box for my very first pistol. I bought it July 3, 1975 at Pay Less. Total cost was $96.49 for a Colt .22 Peacemaker with a 6" barrel. I still have the box, the paperwork and of course the Colt.........I remember JC Penny's selling guns...
