A couple guys came in as she was in the process, and the employee was not a happy camper by the time she left with every 770 being sold I get wanting to get one for yourself, and donít blame folks who call their buddies and say ďhey, get up here before these sell outĒ...but donít lie to a customer

I stopped in Brenham to check, and the kid working there said ďI donít know, Iím not allowed to look it upĒ and started to walk away. I asked for the manager, who finally arrived after 20 minutes, and his explanation was ďwe donít allow the employees to look up guns here, because we have had too many cases of them telling a customer that a gun is in stock, when it isnítĒ okay, so how do you know what guns you have? The answer? ďWe have to go to the back and lookĒ and then just stood there. Ummmm...okay skippy, get to looking unfortunately he came back with the wrong answer for me they were out...so donít waste time driving to check Brenham Walmart, they donít have any

Thereís some back door stuff going on with Tomball. My dad just tried to go in and buy one. Manager said they were out. And then another guy came in and asked about them that was the managers friend and he got a 30-06 and a 270 from the back. Be persistent with them.

Iím curious, is this the 249 location? They were great with me last night. The worker was very candid with me though and said he had one in back with his name on it and another worker had one stashed. Different people working today though Iím sure.

As you can see it was a heavy load.

I had a family member pick me up the same gun but I spent $175. Still a decent deal, so I'm happy.

Heck of a deal at $124. Also the employee told me that after 3 weeks whatever they still have in stock will drop in price another $50 dls. Only God know what is going to be left by that time, I took the last 6.5 at that walmart.

The same deals are happening in Topeka, KS right now, but I'm on a delayed response because of being out of state license and they won't accept my LTC for background. Have a 308 and 270 on hold. Going to check another store today that is suppose to have all their guns on clearance because they will no longer sale any. Going to see if I can get a 20 gauge for my kids.

Does Walmart not allow searches for firearms are ammo on their web site? I can fins shooting accessories, gun cases and BB guns; but nothing else.

I'm betting that savage was at sale price also if it would have had a tag they could have actually checked.

Was able to get cleared today and left with a .270 wood stock and a 308 synthetic. Time to do some homework and see what the 308 needs done on it. The 270 is going to my buddy.

After checking this thread again I went back to our Walmart and had them price check both the Savage Axis and the Remington 700 and both came up at full price. Bummer because they had the 270 too.
