    ^^^^^What he said, me either^^^^^
    I can get everything wallyworld sells at other places in town. It may cost a few cents more but I rather buy from local businesses owned by local people. I dont want for anything by not shopping at wallyworld.

    Guess if you bank at Arvest, you'll want to close those accounts too.

    Don’t have any choice. When you live in a one horse town, you just bite your lip and go in.
    They ran out all the small business.

    We're pretty much Amazon shoppers except for food.

    Amazon doesn’t sell guns or ammo. Walmart still does, although not MSR guns now.
    I’ve found since Amazon started charging tax, I can go to Primary arms or Palmetto arms that beat amazon by a large margin most times. Their flash sales on weekends can be pretty good and they don’t charge OK tax for now.

    I'm in either a Walmart Neighborhood Market or Supercenter at least once a week. Very successful business. They have given good careers to thousands of folks that would not have had an opportunity in their communities. Have done wonderful things in the Bentonville area, and contributed greatly to many good causes. Before I retired, I worked with an attorney, a very sharp IT manager, and an HR VP, all of whom came to our offices in Houston.

    I have nothing but respect for that organization.

    You can look at it either of two ways. On one hand, Walmart CEO says maybe should revisit an AWB, so that's a negative.

    On the other hand, they are standing by their decision to not stop selling firearms and ammo, so that's a positive.

    Guess it depends on if you're a glass half full or half empty sort.
