Remember this when you want to spend your money there.

Also, Cheaper Than Dirt pulled their online sales as well.

True....

Walmart still sells the spoons that made Rosie O'Donnell fat too, and the pencils that miss-spelled words.

Weird.
I watched a guy buy a Windham AR-15 around noon today at Academy.
They had several more available at that time.
Sure they didn't just sell out ... the place was standing room only when I was there.

I just called academy, they still have ar's and are still selling them. I've heard Walmart was pulling them, but haven't been able to verify that rumor yet.
Regards,
Robbie

Academy pulled them off of their website.  Not a single AR to be found there.

Just went by Academy...place is slammed with people... They did MOVE the ARs off the shelf, but did have a couple of higher priced ones and some in 308.  They are selling them but they are not displayed they also said they would be getting a gun shipment tommorow.

I think I talked to him...did he go to Wyotech?  And I'm mad...he got the last DPMS :-[  LOL

They did have some Sigs and Bushmaster, but I 'think' they were all sold before I got finished.
