    gun? What gun? I don't see no stinkin' gun.

    Mission Accomplished!!

    now for Phase II......Saturday night at Golden Corral or your favorite "All You can Eat" Buffet. That is the true test as you have to fight your way to the food, and bump and grind into all sorts of fun people. If you pass Phase II undetected, you get another "Attaboy". Good luck.

Put the permit in the wallet and the handgun in the chosen concealment method on your person and get on with life. A blow-by-blow description of a first time experience isn't necessary as it's no big deal.

    Now successfully carrying into Mexico and back out, onto a Marine Corps base, or past a metal detector would be entertaining.

    A homemade concealed carry holster does add interest.

    But why Wally World?
    We needed dog food and some groceries and it's close...holy crap...you guys act like I'm 21, wet behind the ears, and never carried. Guys I was testing out a new holster set up along with tucked in shirt. I'm a 31 year old man, been shooting all my life, carrying since 2005...what's with the "kids these days" type attitude. It's actually a bit insulting guys. Come on.

    In a world where people feel the need to carry a gun for self defense, I see it as just trying to add a little fun.

    when we all first start carrying, it was like everyone on the street was looking at us.....Wally Walk is just a way for new carriers to get comfortable carrying around people
    and realize that no one is really paying attention to them at all. Yes, it is a big deal to those that just spent the last two or three months fillinng out the paperwork, taking the class, picking out their first pistol, and learning to fit all into their daily routine. We, as experienced carriers should applaud them, not belittle them as immature. As AZJD stated, it is just an attempt to add a little humor to a very serious subject. Nothing wrong with it.

    For those of you that have been carrying since FDR was President, I'm sure you had a similar experience learning to carry around the other dinosaurs at Walrock Mart.....but you just can't remember it.

    Perhaps this is the CCW version of planking?

    I thought you were a dead give away from the first pic.

    You need a better belt or a tighter belt or a new carry location..

    Funny thing about the WW for me is; I've been doing the Wally Walk for years and didn't even know it....


    I've also done the Applebee's walk, Chillie's walk, Wachovia walk and so on, and so on......

    I think you did a good job of concealing the gun. I do have a couple of constructive criticisms for you. First let me say, this is meant purely as constructive criticism. I am not trying to be a jerk so please do not take it that way. For the sake of your safety and your families (I can see the small child in the picture) lose weight. As I said, not trying to be insensitive. I myself used to be your size. In 2006/7 I lost 160 pounds and got into shape. Not only does it make concealing a gun 1000X easier but I am MUCH more able to defend myself and my family. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is easier to do. Seriously consider it. Being able to defend ones family and loved ones does not simply mean carrying a handgun. Being in shape and being able to grapple with a bad guy or run after someone is paramount.

    Which brings me to my second point. Your footwear. I realize those sandals are comfortable and popular but, in a self defense situation they will be a huge hindrance. Good shoes that protect your feet in a fight and allow you to move confidently and quickly are important. In a situation where you need to run to protect your family or yourself, those shoes are not going to help you out.

    This is a lifestyle. It's a different way of thinking than the run of the mill sheep out there. There are so many more things to consider than simply being able to effectively hide the gun.

    Based on that you strike me as having even less of an excuse. Who were/are you trying to impress?

    Good point and in progress. What did you do to get in shape?
