Wal-Mart Walk

Just got back from Wal-Mart shopping with the little woman and did my first open carry thing,not one comment or strange look from anybody,was kind of nervous at first but everybody just seems to be in their own little world at lease around here,and to top it off the ammo locker was full so i came out with a box of 100 Winchester White Box,had a good day.

I would be so self-conscious I probably couldn't walk straight.

Most people have no idea you have a gun. they just don't notice it, or they just assume you're a cop. Condition white.

I used to have fun watching people to see who was carrying a gun- you could see people fiddling with their pants, or gun belts, or holster snaps.

My son who lives in NC open carries all the time and has never had any problem. It does make me nervous though. I prefer concealed.

I was behind a grandma at wally world. she was getting her change purse out and started unloading her steamer trunk at the cash register. she puts her J frame on the belt and all of a sudden it was me and her in line by ourselves it was nice. she said she was sorry and didn't mean to scare anyone. I asked her if the next time she go's to the store she would give me a call. because that was the fastest that I've ever gotten out of there.

Amen brother, the day they posted the store was the last time I went near the place.

That's when I'd go elsewhere! Walmart seems to have individual store policies. My local store sells ammo but not guns. Go one town either direction and WM sells guns.
