I was in Walmart in Troy, Mo. The place was a mad house since the weather forecast was one of those go get milk and eggs. So the checkout lines were at least ten or so people deep on all twenty or so lanes. So I say to myself let's check out TrapShooter.com since I am using the free wireless offered at the store. Well guess what the site is blocked. Guess Walmart this we offer up too much porn.

Too bad Remington didn't pay attention before committing to single supplying their STS/Nitro27 line through wally world. I wonder how much it cost them in lost revenue. I wonder if they care.

You gotta admit it seems pretty freaking funny to be complaining that something you are receiving for free isn't up to your standards. I would never log onto a public wifi anyway. You are opening yourself up to hackers and giving them the "in" when you do log in.

Just Say'n......

Do you have any idea what Remington's share of the target load market? Do you have any idea what the target ammo percentage of the company's revenue is?

Here's a hint, it's pretty much close to nothing, that's why they don't care about trap shooters.

And what % of the shooting market is made of of Trapshooters anyway. I saw a post that said 28,000 active ATA shooters in 2014. Another site quotes "For ALL target sports ; In 2014, the number of participants (aged six years and older) in target shooting amounted to approximately 27.46 million."
No they don't care. Too many stuffy old men...

Walmart does not close other stores, the consumers do. If enough people do not like Walmart and do not shop there, the Walmart will close. Supply and demand. If you do not like Walmart, do not shop there. Simple as that. When there was an earthquake in Sonoma County, California and emergency responders need food, water and supplies, Walmart was there first with semi loads of supplies.
Walmart does a lot of good work behind the scenes and they don't toot their own horn.
That said, shop where you like and feel comfortable.

A lot of poorer people or frugal people shop at Walmart because they can get more for their money. If there is a better place to do that, I would like to know where it is.

No offense to anyone, just my thoughts.

Just install a VPN app like tunnel bear. A virtual private network provides a 'tunnel' and masks your web activity and protects your data etc. one network I find myself on shuts down several forums, some not gun related.
