    Second link broken…

    Still, awesome!

    I thought there was something different when I woke up in an alternate reality this morning. Not bad, just different.

    My great-grandfather bought my current deer rifle(Winchester Model 94 in .30-30) for my grandfather at Sears and Roebuck on December 24, 1957. He paid $89.95 plus $4.08 in taxes.

    I know the details because I’ve got the original receipt that was given to my -great-grandfather, who gave it to my grandfather. 😉

    When my grandfather gave it to me for Christmas a couple years ago, he gave me the rifle, the receipt from 1957, the first box of shells he fired through it, and a Sears and Roebuck cleaning kit he bought for a week after he had the rifle.

    Third-party sellers, I think.

    Yet we will never see them selling at the physical locations with cheap crescent sub-contracted shotguns.

  6. Mopar Says:

    Shawn, you mean “never again”. I don’t think I’m as old as ANYONE’s great grandfather, but I remember drooling over the .22s in Sears Wishbook as a kid in the 70s.

  7. Paul B Says:

    Yes, they had many guns. Many where rebranded and some, as I recall, the Ted Stevvens line, was stuff done just for Sears.

    I’ve had some of those as well as the Western Auto lines. Had monkey wards 22 that was nuts on accurate at one time. Got it for 25 dollars, cleaned the action and had a really good shooter.

    Good memories. Apparently guns have a good markup right now or Sears would not be doing this.

  8. Gunmart Says:

    Anyone else notice it was listed under “gun storage and safety”?

  9. DirtCrashr Says:

    Back to the Future-Past!

  10. Mike Says:

    That’s not Sears selling this stuff, Sears is just letting 3rd party sellers list items now, kind of like how Amazon.com does.

  11. Jeff Says:

    My 1st shotgun was a Sears single shot. It’s so old it didn’t even have a model or serial number on it!

  12. Brian Says:

    One of my friends was asked to leave Sears 2 nights ago because his IWB Sig .380 was spotted as he shopped with his kid. I called corporate yesterday and was told they don’t tell anyone directly or post signs, but they don’t want you there with a gun and you will be ejected if someone feels “unsafe.” So they are only “mostly” anti-gun. I have friends/family saving their holiday receipts from gun-friendly competitors to show Sears we care where we shop. If anyone wants more details, please let me know.

    @ Brian…

    That may be a “corporate leaves it up to the local GM” policy. I openly carry in Sears here in middle TN quite a bit and have never been asked to leave or cover up. Whereabouts are you located?

    Regards,
    Pol

    It’s more than just that. They’re selling the dreaded 747 killing Tactilite .50 BMG upper receiver. What’s hilarious is that the product description is “Streamlight AC/DC UltraStinger Rechargable”.

    Quick, someone send the link to japete with an email subject of “All I want for Christmas is a man portable death cannon”.

    Actually, I think Canthros has it right. The page indicates that the product is sold by ShopBags. Still, a move in the right direction.

    @ Pol…

    I’ve never had a problem at the store or the mall it is in, even while open carrying. That fact is the frustrating part. The guy that was booted out of the store looks and acts like a responsible citizen and was Christmas shopping. Not knowing if you may be asked to leave creates some apprehension when it comes to shopping there, so I won’t be unless it gets resolved- and based on my conversation with their “executive” customer service rep Lana they don’t want to allow or disallow legally carried guns, they just don’t want them in their stores sometimes.

    BTW- I live in Huntington, WV and the store in question is located at the local mall.

    Happy Thanksgiving,
    Brian
