    A few days ago, I made an online order from Walmart for goat feed and to make the free delivery, I added a tin of crosman pellets. I picked up the goat feed from the store but was surprised the pellets were shipped to the house. When I saw the large box in front of the house, I tried to remember what else I ordered. I was surprised at what I saw in the box was just the one tin of .22 pellets and some air filled packaging to fill up the empty space in the box

    That is pretty silly.  How did the online price compare to in store price?

    That tin was probably claustrophobic, and needed  some space.

    Walmart is really trying to steal some of the online market share from Amazon.  They are jumping into that free 2 day shipping bs but I didnt realize they were going to replicate Amazons shipping  department also.  I bought my Hatsan from Amazon and they shipped it in the original box and needless to.say a bunch of stuff fell out.  I had to replace.the gun so they ship the replacement in a box large enough for a flat screen tv.  The box was 4ft by 4 ft.  Best part was the replacment was in the original box with one strip of packing paper tossed into the box for whatever reason.  Well at.least these companies are keeping the pulp mills and box manufacturers busy

    I recycle plastic and cardboard so nothing is wasted but I did think it was ridicules. I remember reading a story about a lady who ordered a broom or mop, something thin and long, and the box was large enough for her to fit on

    I had the same thing happen to me at Walmart a couple years ago.  Walmart had some RWS Superdomes on sale for like $4/tin.  I decided to buy a couple just to have on hand.  So I ordered the two tins of pellets and set it up for in store pick up.  When I went to go pick them up they handed me two big boxes, 2-3 times as big as the pictures above.  I opened them up on the spot as I figured something must have been wrong.  Each box had one tin of pellets in the bottom and the boxes were full of big bubble wrap.
