    "Unlicensed Possession" were the key words on the sign. So, we're good to go. Thanks all for the comments. I suppose it was a dumb question on my part but hey, I'm still learning.
    You will see this sign everywhere you go in TX that sells / serves spirits, from restaurants, convenience stores, grocery stores, liquor stores, Walmart, etc. Being licensed, I view these as "Welcome" signs ... you're good to go ...

    Going to Wal-Mart with my new CCL was to me a right-of-passage. No signs here in Wisconsin that I have seen.

    To the OP...having my TX CHL, you missed one requirement for posting "no guns". The sign has to meet the PC 30.06 specifically. I have not seen any Wal-Mart's in TX that do that. Some have "gun buster" signs, but those are not "valid", for lack of a better word, to a Texas CHL holder.

    This is one of the many advantages of carrying concealed.

    To quote Gabe Suarez "Non-Permissible Environments" without metal detectors are imaginary."

    Yes, I acknowledge that I did miss it. I knew it was not a 30.06 sign (did see one of those recently outside of a UPS distribution location) so I knew the one at Wal-Mart, not being a "legal" sign against CC, I was just wondering if it might have been one of those cases where an individual place of business had made their own posting. I know that may not be enforceable but it could still present hassles for any individual CHL who is doing it legal, still might run afoul of a manager or business who wants to make their own rules. Just glad it turned out not to be the case. I know, I should have made it a point to read the details of the sign first.

    My hypothesis:

    1. Large group of people.
    2. Will mostly be concentrating on shopping.
    3. Most are gun friendly so likely to not get in trouble if exposed or printing (depending on the state).
    4. Successfully doing so in such an environment gives confidence.

    I was in the Marquette, MI. one today. They had lots of ammo and guns in stock, and there were no signs on carrying. Yes, they are gun friendly.

    is walmart gun friendly?
    I'd say no from what I've seen and read.

    Me either but I did it anyway. I was told on another forum that it was a must. Something that each new CCL holder did.

    Not sure what "going through Walmart" means, but I end up there a lot simply because that's where my wife drags me for some shopping item or other.

    Personally I think anyone who doesn't carry at Wal-Mart is either stupid or has a death wish. Have you seen some of the people that shop there?
    Try seeing the people at the ones up here after all this oil boom crap. We had an incident awhile back with a group of people following a woman talking to each other in Spanish about how they were going to rape her and such. Little did they know, she was a Spanish teacher. Called 911 and led the morons right to some cops waiting outside. If this crap makes it much further my way, I might be headed further west.

    Sounds like you're good to go. Glad to hear about businesses posting "no unlicensed weapons."

    I was told by a friend that a no guns sign went up today at the Wal-Mart in Wadsworth, Ohio. The manager is being contacted for explanation. Any kind of sign in Ohio has the force of law so this is worrying. I found the post about it being in the regional manager's hands enlightening.

    As it's been discussed, the 30.06 is all that matters in Texas. Also, Concealed is Concealed!
    There are plenty of youtube videos from states that allow open carry, where Wal-mart calls the police and surrounds people legally carrying openly and has them ejected.

    Personally, I don't shop there. Walmart F$%^&ing Sucks...even at 2am on a Thursday night. It just sucks on so many levels.

    Walmart's primary concern is making as much money as possible. Most of the time, folks who carry don't disturb that process. If your carrying disturbs a significant number of people who, in all probability are going to spend more money than you, then (for their comfort), you will be asked to leave and escorted by the police if you decide to pitch a fit about it.
