I walked into Wal Mart (a huge, national chain store if you aren't familiar with it) tonight and found that they had expanded their shooting section. I bought two boxes of Sierra MK 168 grain for $23 ea and was astounded to see a DPMS AR 15 with a collapsible stock and good sights for a ridiculous $529 out-the-door. They had IMR 4350 for $23 a pound and that is cheap these days. Across the isle they had bipods, tactical gear, scopes and tactical gun cases.
This surprised even me.~Muir
