    Y'all up north won't understand this- Jem probably will. Our local Fred's Hometown Discount Store closed, as have a lot of Fred's. Fred's was the rural southern version of a small Walmart-- making WM a last resort. It was a sad day.

    But it's an interesting question. What would happen if WM began closing stores? Rise of the Mom & Pop or some other gigantic corp? Hum. Odds are stacked against Moms & Pops.

    Jem... great and accurate post.

    Speaking with some LEO’s awhile back they mentioned that the local Walmart parking lot was the most dangerous place in town.

    Stopped going there awhile back... tired of the Chinese crap they sell.

    Jem, you’ll be getting a lot more business. Assuming the owners decided de to be competitive.
    Remind me to promote your counter on the next podcast as there are listeners who work out here.

    All their pretenses aside, all their PCBS rhetoric, all their fake morality, it's always been about getting the guns, all of the guns. In order to maintain the socialist agenda, gain power, and keep it, they need to have the guns. All the rest of it is fodder for the sheeple.

    All we buy at Wally World is bird seed and we carrys our guns where the sun seldom shines. Surprises are nice. Open packing for civilians is only good to know which idiots are doing it and remember to stay away from them cause they aint normal in the head.

    Think about the people that went to Wal-Mart and bought a box of 9mm,
    .223 or Tula 7.62x39. While they were there they impulse bought a pair of earmuffs, some targets, an orange hunting vest and and some camo gloves since they lost this stuff from last year. Men especially will go somewhere they can get it all at one stop. This could turn into an opportunity for the smaller stores. I can remember when Penny's, Sears, Roses, even a store called Sky City sold firearms and ammo and stopped. Walmart stepped in became a place to get it all and those places are basically all gone now. Maybe Wal-Mart will become Target #2. My guess is after they milked this thing awhile for the PR, they might decide to slip some of the stuff back in. It depends on how much it hurts the bottom line.

    I love one stop shopping! If I could find a place that would sell me booze, firearms, ammo, and hookers, I would be all over it!

    Great question and I believe that small Mom & Pop stores would open up in a big way.

    I would be inclined to do so.

    Used to be Wal-Mart counting the parking lot. Best to go in the daylight though.
