SWAT in Eastern Carolina Food Lion !

Was picking up some items for the wife on the way home from the shop at the local Food Lion and as has become my habit, I checked the magazine rack for SWAT. I have never seen it there before but … sure enough … there it was.

You guys at SWAT are doing an excellent job at penetrating the market as I am continually seeing the publication in places where it was not before. I certainly hope such means that more are buying and reading it.

Again; good job!

The last SWAT magazine I bought was found in a gas station/mini mart just off of US27 in the middle of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.

Scott-
It's a simple and elegant Free Market formula. We want in to more outlets, we pay for the chance (that's as it should be; mag shelf space is limited and valuable). We Sell, we Stay; we don't Sell, we Go. So far, we're Selling and Staying!

Did I say I LOVE the Free Market!?

You have BAM there in J'ville. Having traveled far and wide I can honestly say that there are one of the best book stores for weapons related mags.

And if you find S.W.A.T. in the back of the rack, move it to the front.

SWAT can be found on BiLo supermarket magazine racks in eastern central Georgia. But they are no longer at the Wal Mart...no gun magazine is.
