My first walk was at the dollar store. I wanted it to be risky. lol
I did go to Wally World the first day out, but not as part of some grand plan. Thing was, I was with my wife, and she CANNOT leave the house without going to Walmart. Can't happen. So, we went. She crapped cookies when we got home and I disarmed and I told her I had it with me the whole time. Not that she was upset, but that she couldn't tell I had it at all - she didn't even know I'd picked up my license earlier that day.
Sorry, I rarely have been in WalMart stores. When I got my permit I packed my revolver and went wherever I wanted that allowed weapons. Actually WalMart should be one of the last places to go first. Many of the WalMart shoppers care less what is going on around them. Just saying..........
bject: RE: Firearms Thank you for contacting Wal-Mart regarding our concealed handgun policy. Wal-Mart was founded by Sam Walton on three basic principles. Strive for Excellence, Service to our Customers, and Respect for the Individual. It is that respect for the individual that led us to create the current policy pertaining to concealed handguns. The following is our policy......If a Wal-Mart customer has been awarded a concealed handgun license by the state government, Wal-Mart will follow the direction of the state. However, if at anytime while on Wal-Mart property, that customer's concealed weapon becomes visible to Wal-Mart associates or customers, Wal-Mart reserves the right to ask the customer to either reposition the weapon so that it will not be visible, to remove the weapon completely or to leave Wal-Mart property, With the exception of law enforcement personnel, Wal-Mart does not allow any exposed weapons to be worn or carried in public view on Wal-Mart property or in Wal-Mart stores. Customers other than law enforcement personnel wearing or carrying a weapon in an exposed manner will be asked to leave the property immediately. We appreciate your concern and trust that this message has addressed your concerns regarding this issue. Thank you, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. This policy is still in affect today 2011

2. You can buy ammo while you are there and other gun related items.
3. You can buy chips , a steak, and other items there to celebrate your CC license.
4. You can check out some 'cover shirts" at the same time.....
All in the same place......
Can't do that at a flea market or a mall.
Have you really looked at some of the people who frequent Walmart? :gah:
Time for a confession - I haven't even been in a Wal Mart since I've had my CCL. My first CC experience was at my bank, then on to a super market, neither with a gunbuster sign posted.
