Well, don't think anyone mentioned it, but if you are going to Walmart... you probably WANT to be armed. LOL.

WALLY WORLD WALK
Finally the long awaited day
Hog leg strapped to my hip
Had to test it as they say
Knew where to go first trip
Rode off like Marshall Dillon
Dressed so I didn't print
Walked the Aisles a chillin
Just so no one gets a hint
Got my Nachos with a smile
Even the cashier didn't gawk
As I strutted the ammo aisle
Doing the Wally World Walk
Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
By definition my country now calls me a radical
I broke my cherry there. We go there almost every time we go to town, along with Tractor Supply, the feed store, and Lowes. No sense in coming home without a full truck and a good meal, besides, if we spend enough time in WallyWorld, everyone we know will eventually walk by. Kind of a modern mountain folk's redezvous. Also, i might get my picture in "People of WalMart with guns dotcom". It's pretty friendly in Sonora, but when you go down to Stockton or Modesto it gets really ghetto.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
Yes did the WallyWorld Walk .
Its a must do
I think more should do something like a bank walk, if it's legal in their jurisdiction to carry in their local bank. Wally World is almost too easy .... go to the bank, where the potential of thwarting a real threat (sounds like I'm lisping, doesn't it?) is always higher than a Wal-Mart. Or the mall. Or a school. Or a theater .... wait a minute, that's just wrong, isn't it?
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

First carry was at my local convenience store for smokes and a fountain soda.Went to Wally World a few days later. I always carry at the bank. We have had several get robbed here lately. Dont want to be a victim while putting my check in the bank. I would react the same way as a convenience store robbery. If the BG just does his thing and leaves, I am a witness. If he starts waving his gun around, threatening folks ....
My bank has good cover too. Nice big pillars and kiosks for filling out forms.
Always wonder if they have guards on premises. Never see any but that doesn`t mean they aren`t behind one of the doors that I never see anyone go into or out of.
We have different gifts, each according to the grace God has given to each of us.
Honestly, I think it's because people don't view Wal-Mart as a threatening place, therefore, they use it to practice their first carry. If someone is nervous and wants to carry in CC public (around others) for the first time they would probably go to a place where they could get used to carrying without the high probably of having to use their gun. Wal-Mart seems like a great place to test the waters because the probability of using your gun there seems minimal + you are exposed to high traffic. Once you get comfortable in Wal-Mart it's pretty easy to be comfortable in most other places.
I don't always carry two concealed S&W 500's.........JUST KIDDING!
