Do the Walmarts in Vegas still carry guns and ammo?





#1
I went by Walmart on Charleston near Decatur a few weeks back to grab some ammo and socks. I went to check out at the gun counter and it was empty along with all the racks and cases. I didn't have time to ask about it and haven't been back since.

Anyone know if the Walmarts around Vegas still carry shooting stuff?

Some locations do, some don't. Walmart as with any other retailer will move/remove merchandise based on sales statistics.. If products aren't selling in one store, they will move it to another store that is selling it.

Seems like the ones in "rougher" neighborhoods dont sell them. The one by me on Stewart and Nellis hasn't sold guns ever since I remember. Same with the one on boulder highway, the one on Tropicana and pecos ,etc. The one in Henderson does sell them though

Did the Nellis store sell them up until the cops were murdered there, or was it just ammo? I bought shotgun shells at Boulder Hwy/Nellis just a couple years ago on my way out to night trap at the Boulder Club, but again, maybe they just stocked ammo, and I can't remember if there were actually any guns there. I bought my one and only Walmart gun at the store on Trop/Pecos a very long time ago. It was one of the WalMart exclusives made by Ruger, a 10/22 International with a gray laminated stock. Still have it.

I've lived by Stewart and Nellis for almost my entire life and I never remembered it ever selling and guns. I remember us going to Kmart and an old surplus store by Nellis and Bonanza for guns and ammo as a kid. The other Walmarts I went to occasionally but I only remember them selling ammo

I bought an 870 there...Stewart and Nellis. Steel bb split the muzzle on my old one at The Virgin. Drove in and got back to ducking by 10:00am. 25? years ago.

Walmart at Charleston and Decatur has been undergoing remodeling for months now. Last time I was in there (a week or 2 ago) they had cabinets for guns installed behind the new counter in sporting goods but the shelves weren't up and no product; I don't know if they have completed it at this point or not. So yes, I believe they will still be selling them, it is just taking them forever to complete the renovations because they remained open and have to work around customers and keep some product on the shelves.

They've finished the remodel and have long guns and ammo available again.

Its not stats. Some of the older locations were caught doing illegal sales, years ago, and lost their license.

So, I guess that large retailers don't adjust the inventories in specific stores to match the local demand...The national, regional, and district managers have been lying to the stakeholders for all of these years...

What does "adjusting" have to do with LOSS of LICENSE? As told to me by a sports dept. manager at a Henderson store years ago when I asked why they do not carry arms. Really doesn't matter if you fail to understand this simple fact.

The ones near me do, but good luck finding anybody working the sporting goods dept to sell it to you.
This... The one on Blue Diamond/Rainbow sells rifles and ammo, but they may as well not even bother. Trying to get someone to open the display case is a process best left to those with more patience than I.

The one nearest me off Cheyenne/Rainbow sells them. I wouldn't own a $99 single shot 20 gauge if they didn't.

Does anyone know if WalMart sells handguns in any state? I swear I saw them in one in Ohio in the mid-90's but could be wrong.

Serene/eastern wallmart in henderson "added" long guns to sporting goods section about 4-5 months ago which i thought was strange since i noticed them being removed from other store locations. :unsure:
