I was wondering what your opinions are with the retail giants, Walmart ect. I used to shop them but dont anymore. I gave it up when trying to deal with some of the sporting goods "associates". I have found myself to be a much happier person when dealing with local dealers. I know you will pay a bit more at these shops but by golly I think its worth it to talk to someone with a passion for our sports. How many times have you left Walmart with a gun in your mouth?? I really enjoy doing my trading with local down to earth sportsman that make their living dealing with items they use and believe in. I support the little man. Even though it cost me a few more bucks in the long run, I feel im well ahead not dealing with the headache of retail giants.
