146. That is EXACTLY how they did it at every Walmart in our town
We got the cheap Compaq laptop. It went on sale at 12:00 and they began handing out tickets at 7:00. You HAD to stay in line in order to get it. You could turn your ticket over to go to the bathroom. After 5 minutes, it was forfeit and went to someone else. I got my ticket at 8:00 and had number 1. I sat in line for 4 hours with a book and walked out with my laptop - no issues.

Where you see the issues is the tool bags who line up and fight for the 200 $2 waffle makers they have. Much harder to have tickets/lines for EVERY SINGLE ITEM that is for sale.
