    Well, we could have a small pin on our shirts or hats (does not have to have anything to do with guns) like the Secret Service and other LEO Departments have who wear civilian clothes on public high profile assignments.......

    Decide (have a vote) on the exact pin style and where it can be purchased and we could make it the OFFICIAL DC CC PIN.

    Then we all could wear it and identify each other as we go about our daily routines.

    I recall my first in 1999. Wally then, CVS pharmacy then, the in-laws. Had the Makarov in an IWB with shirt tucked in over top. It pulled off pretty well as I recall.

    There were not nachos available.

    Congrats...on the new permit! You, however, did not fill out the proper paperwork for the WW trek. Post a notice to SIXTO, and request the application...HURRY...it must be completed prior to the trip, but in some cases he'll let that requirement slide.

    when I did the wallmart walk.....wife wanted to do some grocery shopping......man, oh man, got to the point where standing by a grocery cart just got so difficult....had to walk around.....bought a ton of groceries (have to go back and get some clothes and ammo)! The price of groceries used up the budget! Noticed every camera in the place, hahaah........but got over it fast.......neet part was when no one paid a moments glance.....left with renewed confidence.....of course nothing showed, but getting the walk behind and the confidence gained is good!

    Alas.....next trip tho......ammo, cover garments.......hehehe

    Not true.


    The more i carry, the more I realize that all the comments about "sheeple" are true... Sad but true.

    But ...
    If you're going for even the smallest bit of situational awareness... the people around you who are carrying isn't that hard to pick up. Start by looking at anybody else who isn't in a daze, and you'll weed out a lot of people quickly.

    Of the people who ARE paying attention, a certain percentage will be showing the signs (if not outright displaying a part of their gun).

    That percentage depends a lot on where you live. - Personally I live in one of the two main cities where Navy SEALS are based, so the percentage is kinda high. -- YMMV

    Congrats. When I started carrying there were no Wal-marts. My first test was done at Sears and Robuck (now just Sears). This was back when they Had a good sporting goods section. We had a big store downtown then so I walked the streets and in the stores (no Malls then either). That trip I think I went to Sears, Wards (Montgomery Wards then) and the 99cent Hand Store. None of those stores exist where they were now in Eugene Oregon.

    Back then my Favorite stores to visit were the War Surplus stores that still carried WW2 surplus guns and blades.

    Light travels faster than sound.

    Which explains why some people appear to be bright, until you hear them speak!

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    so what is this initial walmart walk?

    other than refusing to show my receipt when leaving walmart i dont have any problems there.

    one fun thing is to see if you can spot other people carrying concealed handguns.
