    Wally World Walk - Check

    So, everyone on DC has told me that since I have my cc permit I needed to take the Wally World Walk. Done without incident and felt like just another stroll through the place.

    So what's next?

    Now you just need your suspicionless stop by an officer because a 'concerned third party' called.

    Didn't you say in an earlier post you had a gun show in the area this weekend? You could always go there and look for your next gun. Guns are one of those things you can never have enough of!

    Yes I did. Too much to do today, and tomorrow isn't looking any better. Husband had plans that I wasn't aware of. There's supposed to be another show first weekend in February; I've known about it for some time now and had plans of attending it.

    My son-in-law wants to go this weekend, so maybe...but not counting on it...hubbies plans will probably take precedence.

    Congrats on the "Wally Walk" Rite of Passage for members of the forum.

    I still have the scars from mine but glad to see you came out virtually unscathed. It's a tough world out there, carry and carry often.

    Last trip to Wally World the Greeter asked if I had any weapons. "No" I replied. She pointed to a box with all kinds of them and said "Here, take one, you'll need it.

    Just kidding, but I do carry there quite often.

    The park at the town square, with old ladies and babies galore. Run through a couple bare-fear MWAG calls, and you'll be set.

    Next, I'd say is to simply go about your normal business. It is your normal business, from now on. Dressed with wallet/purse, keys, sidearm, spares ... just as you put on your shoes and socks. Non-threatening, normal and customary behaviors, regular destinations. Just, now you're well-armed. Don't forget the spares (mag, speed strips).

    Thanks.
    I don't understand all the hype about the Wally Walk, all you don't get that close to people for it to really matter. If I were to brush up against someone, it's none of their business what I have on my belt.

    My bigger concern is being somewhere that I know the people, but don't want them knowing that I'm carrying. If they brush up against me or try to hug me and feel the gun, what to do then.

    Only been pulled over once in my life. My tags were about to expire, but I had the new ones home.

    A concerned third party call? Not sure what that would be about.

    It's not Wal-Mart, per se. But it's the getting out and getting comfortable in busy, public places that's the key. Wal-Mart excursions generally involve oblivious folk, crazy folk, the young and the old, folks standing near you or right behind you in line. A reasonable test of one's fears and concerns, and often a test of handling the reactions of others. Not a bad test, really. Could be done anywhere with similar situations to contend with.

    Sure, nobody's business but yours, in a sense. But as we're all citizens, it's equally every other citizen's right to take steps they deem necessary to be safe, and often that'll include requesting police involvement to resolve or check out, reacting badly by moving away or whatever.

    Anyway. Mostly, newbies to carrying need to get over the nervousness of the first outings. Wally-World ain't a bad place to dispel those mostly baseless fears. But, any busy park or other retail joint will also do.

    Thanks ccw9mm for the clarification....

    I wasn't nervous carrying at Wal-Mart, nor have I been nervous carrying to-date.

    I guess it's due to my husband, son and son-in-law have carried for years. My husband has given plenty of sound advise, illustrations, options, council and what if scenarios.

    My biggest concern came before I began carrying. That concern was where to carry: side iwb, aiwb, or biwb and what type holster was going to work best for me. Once that was determined the rest has been a simple part of daily life.

    I am very comfortable cc'ing and doing so in very public places.
