    Made at WalMart

    I have carried concealed for 14 years now, never been made, until now. Floor sweeper made contact with my left foot as I was standing at meat counter. I turned to face him as he dropped dust mop,raised his hands and loudly declared "Don't shoot". Shook my head and walked away. I had a feeling this is how he passes his time while sweeping. I avoid this idiot now when I go to Walmart. Would any of you handled this differently?

    You keep your gun on your left foot?

    I'd have said "No problem" and gone on about my business.

    Did he really detect you firearm, or was he playing a "game"?

    i would have asked for a manager and asked if its common for employees to make an issue out of something as personal as a concealed firearm in front of other shoppers and employees...thats not appropriate in any setting...

    The mind of WW floor sweeper can be a complex and misunderstood.

    I'd have dropped to floor, grabbed my foot and loudly exclaimed "I'm going to sue!" Wonder what he'd do at that point?

    Were you really made or was he just goofing saying "don't shoot" cause he bumped your foot? ...either way just another example of the stupids you can find there.

    From his actions I feel like I had been made. The contact with the dust mop was intentional. Otherwise a simple excuse me would have been a proper response.

    How do you carry and how/why (other than him saying don't shoot) do you think he made you?

    I doubt, very seriously, you got made. I think the guy bumped your foot and made a joke out of it.
