    Armed Walmart Employee?

    I observed an interesting Wally's World Employee this last weekend while waiting in the car for my wife to do some quick shopping.

    The employee was pushing carts into the building as he was passing close to my vehicle. I noticed that he was wearing black jeans in hot weather, which usually screams possible mall ninja to me for some reason. Then I noticed he had a buck knife holster on his belt, which was right above a tacticle folder on his weakside pocket. I continued to watch as he walked past, and I noticed a maxpedition like belt pouch on his strong side at about 4 o'clock that I have seen people use for small pistol concealment. Then (I had to double take on this one) I observed an ASP in a holster at about 3' o'clock, in front of his belt pouch.

    I couldn't help but laugh at the situation. This guy was carrying a wide array of tools/weapons in plain site, but using careful enough blending that no one was noticing. In fact, I wouldn't have noticed so quickly had he not had the buck knife holster on, which was brown and did not blend with his mode of dress. Everything else was black and consequently just melted away into the color of his black jeans. He was wearing the required yellow safety vest for cart pushers, and he had it flared out where it just broke up the outlines and made it all seem normal.

    And no, I do not believe this guy was some kind of security. He didn't come anywhere close to fitting the typicle profiles of someone who would be, starting with the 2 foot long ponytail and the otherwise sloppy stature of the indidual. When my wife returned to the car, I pointed him out and she looked him over for a few seconds. She just shook her head and commented at how amazing it is to do so little blending, and yet have it work so perfectly.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Good on him. Let's hope his "superior's" don't figure him out (the ASP, while being a great non-lethal option, seems a bit risky to his status if you ask me).

    There's more than you know...Shhhhh!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    This could be a new movement - it's high time for us CCWers to take back Wal Mart!

    Personally I like the idea, especially since they seem to not want to pop for the price of armed security at stores like this and malls.

    Not knowing his history, maybe he has had trouble in the past such as being robbed or he has received death threats. Could be he is just working for Walmart part time and is attending the Mall Ninja academy.
    God bless our troops!

    WAL-MART parking lots are among the most dangerous places in any town. If he's working the lot wrangling those carts he ought to be armed, especially at night.

    I agree, I work 3rd shift so I usually do my shopping around that time. I've seen a couple scary peeps. Thought I was getting set to be robbed once. Couldn't imagine what it would be like to work there that time of night.

    If I had to work at Wal Mart, I would carry too. I would be a little more concerned about my concealment then he seemed to be. A lot of people carry to work that have company policies against it. I don't understand what the big deal is about a WalMart employee carrying.
