Gander Mountain ammo prices! Insane...

Just griping here. I visited the Gander Mountain is Geneva IL yesterday. I hardly ever go there, but I was in neighborhood, so I dropped in as I wanted to grab some 9mm ammo. I go and check out WWB/100 pk - $32.99/box plus tax! They are crazy high!! Now I can find that ammo all day long at Walmart around here for $23/box of 100 WWB. I asked the sales guy if the price was correct and he confirmed it was. I politely told him than any Walmart within 30 miles would have it for $23/box everyday, he told me I should get over to Walmart then - SO I DID! I went over to the nearest Walmart and bought 10 boxes of WWB/100 pack for $23/box. Gander will not be on my places to stop anymore....

I still can't believe their ammo prices. They also had 250/pk of Remington UMC/yellow box there for $75.99 or $79.99, can't remember, but again any Walmart or even Bas Pro will have those for $65.99. It's a shame, because it is a nice store and they had that market corner for a few years before BassPro and Cabelas came into town.

I remember a guy with a Gander Mtn. shirt on at a local Wally World buying a bunch of ammo. He didn't answer when I asked if he was buying for himself or Gander Mtn. At another LGS they didn't even remove the Wally World price sticker, just put their price sticker over it, yea, the price was $8.00 more on their sticker.

The only reason I go to Gander is to look at something I might want to buy, with their prices they always have stuff in stock it seems. Then I can buy online and know more about what I want and save money to boot.

Ekim, WOW that must have been a site at Wally World. Amazing. I uderstand these big box stores have to make $$$, but they shouldn't under estimate that us shooters know the going rate of ammo. We can get it at any online store or wally world.

We have a gander mountain over here. There are very few cars there even around christmas time. My guess is that they charge so much they can get away with selling only 1/4 as much stuff as the next sporting goods store and stay in business.

The only time I every actually shopped at gander mountain was when I was young and was just starting to get into shotguns. My guess is most of the enthusiests start at gander mountain them move up to more reasonably priced stores after doing research for gun #2.

Gander sometimes has good prices on firearms, but I always buy my ammo from Walmart.

Gander mountain sucks. I looked at guns their once and it was flat out rape. They can keep their sh!t. I buy elsewhere.

Their gun prices aren't cheap either, but they have a good selection that allows me to handle and check them out but that's where my business stops with them.

I bought my XD from Gander Mountain. I paid $499 for a 4" .40s&w, it was on sale. Then I spent another $75 for the warranty extension. Let me explain this part to you. Most firearms have a one-year warranty on them. Gander mountain offers a warranty extension that covers wear and tear, accidental breakage, etc. However, certain companies, like Springfield, have lifetime manufacturers warranties on all their firearms. Gander mountain's warranty extension covers the "life of the warranty", which means that I could dip my gun in liquid nitrogen, shatter it into a million pieces, and Gander mountain, under contract, will take those pieces, drop ship them(for free) to S/A, and in a few weeks, I get back a fully functioning weapon. I will never buy ammunition from Gander. I would probably never buy another brand of gun from them. But I will buy a Springfield from them, just for the simple reason of the warranty.
