I understand that they came back to two of the Lancaster County stores late last year.

Our two Lebanon Co. stores still only sell ammo. I asked and was told no plans at this time to return firearms.

Guess it depends on deman.d

When our WM first wanted to build, they had an agreement not to sell guns for at least 5 years due to a local gun shop being just 1/4 mile down the road. They just started selling guns this past fall.

Every Wal Mart in Erie, County stopped carrying firearms but the Corry store. BIG MISTAKE on their part seeing as how much revenue gun sales bring to all those rural stores.

Punxsy. Pa. started selling Guns again last Year. Even have some AR types in the Guncase. Would be nice if they sold reloading stuff also.

Honesdale WM did stop carrying them years ago! Dickson City and Wilkes Barre kept carrying them. Pittston never did. I never understand why a store like Honesdale would stop carrying them with all the hunting in the area, But Dickson and Wilkes WM's kept carrying them.

Word to the wise, if it matters - WM keeps a written history of a gun purchase. Your personal info (including ss#) and gun serial # is recorded in a notebook kept un-secured under the counter. Caused me to walk away from a purchase.
