    They're wrong. Buy your shells on the grounds or at Walmart in Sparta. They know the law.

    Wal-Mart (supposedly) wants to see your ATA card & out-of-state DL. Chester didn't get the memo, apparently.

    The only card Gamaliel's wants to see is your MasterCard.

    If you buy shells at the Wal-Mart in Sparta, you will need to show your ATA card.

    If you buy shells at the shell house on the grounds (Gamaliel), you don't need to show your ATA card.

    ATA card can be used in SPARTA at Walmart.

    Shells available on grounds, Most of us recommend you buy from Gamaliel's
    on grounds at shell house, there are perks.
    All the Best.

    Never Fear Captain.....

    Last week flats of STS & AA were $70 at Wally World and $73 at shell house.

    If you buy at shell house they will stamp your UPC's and you can get your rebate on site (That is what they told me in Remington store.) No cutting boxes or mailing crap in and waiting 2 months....
