    Wow! you folks forgot already how the Wal-Mart "tradition" first got started? It was the concealed carry "test" to go into Wal-Mart - walk around and then buy the Nachos.

    Nobody even mentioned the infamous NACHOS?


    I started carrying daily long before Wal-Mart even existed so it never applied to me.

    That's really surprising. I've NEVER been to a Walmart that felt unsafe. The only problem I've had is that while they have the BEST prices on ammo, the shelves are almost always bare. I suspect there are people who work there that call their friends when the shipments arrive. With prices going up 25% per year, I've been buying every chance I get. I've got a pretty good inventory, but I'm going to continue to buy. Who knows what will happen if Obama gets re-elected or gets his guy voted in as the new chief of the ATF (supposedly the MOST anti-gun candidate he could find...can't remember his name)!!!!! Academy has pretty good prices.

    There is no collective chain store I have been to where a peddler has begun his pitch with "hey, man, I just got out of jail ...." more than at Walmart.

    At the local WW here, they took out the little snack shack they had inside and McDonalds set up shop. Now you have to get one of those tiny cheeseburgers that you can eat in one bite.

    Haven’t seen a Wal-Mart with nachos in years, all around here have Subway sandwich shops.

    This actually surprises me. I grew up in the Portland and Portland Metro area of Oregon and even spent a few years living in Washington before i went into the U.S.A.F. and Washington is an Anomalous Open Carry state. meaning unless the city town or county has a ban on open carry, you can open carry anywhere other than schools, airports, courthouses, and major crowded events like music festivals and whatnot! so for them to NOT honor a CCW from idaho when they DO honor them from Oregon is very surprising.

    I would guess that the odds of needing your firearm in walmart are greater than the average neighborhood grocery :)

    Wal-Mart cherry...

    My 'first time' was at a Wally World. It's the biggest place to visit in my small town.

    My first time concealed carrying was at Wal-Mart. It wasn't just to go to test things out. I really needed to go to Wal-Mart. I carry everywhere unless it is prohibited such as schools, hospitals, government offices and the like.

    I prefer Amazon. I consider them more gun friendly since I practice my draw and dry firing drills while shopping.

    If you're gonna do the Walmart CCW Walk, you must first have a plan in place.

    Walmart was the first store I OC'd in but not CC.

    I had not thought about it until you asked but my first CC was a wal-mart.

    Like a lot of 'traditions' this one exists not because it is the 'best' place to carry, or is a test of any real value to the carrier. If I had to guess it would be the ubiquitous presence of WalMart in the U.S. It's also considered the lowest common denominator of U.S. culture. Most everyone can relate to 'WalMart people'. You might say that this tradition grew on it's own and has been adopted by certain groups in the concealed carry population.

    The original tradition was go to go Wal-Mart, head for the snack bar and enjoy an order of NACHOS.

    This was back in the day when most Wally Worlds were not the "Super-Centers" they are today. The older stores had snack bars.

    The current tradition is to go to Wal-Mart, buy nacho ingredients and enjoy them at home.

    I actually carried open while hunting lol had to say it

    My first OC with a handgun was at Carson Park in Eau Claire amd concealed was at the beach on Wisconsin Point. Google it, awesome place.

    My first negative reaction to carrying anything was at wallyworld. Just like everybody elses probably lol
