    Wife & Walmart

    Posted prior about my wife &CC and how she wanted to know prior when we are out and I'm carring. So yesterday we're off to Walmart to food shop and on the way out she ask are you allowed to carry at Walmart? I responded I'm allowed almost everywhere. So we get home not even 5 mins later the news breaks the story of the armed suspect running into Walmart with guns to escape the cops with a shootout in the parking lot. Kinda funny we Just talked about Walmart and that happened. Just another reason to carry everyday and hopefully she understands even more now

    It is funny, Everytime my wife and I go to Wally World, she asks me if I am carrying. I say always..... she says she just likes to make sure, that is comforting to know.

    Good job for carrying, do you ALWAYS carry? WW is a place I refuse to be unarmed, way too much crime in the vacinity.

    Women seem to need something to happen close to them for them to "get it". For most, seeing things on the news doesn't get their attention. Something needs to happen to someone they know, or hear about it second hand from someone they know. Or sometimes have something happen to a place they frequent. Glad your wife "gets it". Carry on...

    Why does your wife require notification when you are carrying? Maybe I should just read that other thread before I make a judgement.

    The Wal-Mart here is horrible. All kinds of shady people hanging around. I always make sure to carry some OC and take my pocket knife when I go there.

    My wife never has to ask. She knows I am armed. She told me I am dangerous!

    Have your reluctant wives read this. . .

    Have your reluctant wives read this. . . This WM event happened in Little Rock, Arkansas last year. It's a darn good thing her husband was carrying at the time. BTW...this WM is located in a very upscale area, where homes in the vicinity easily run from $300k to a million plus, not in some dangerous or crime ridden part of town

    Wife and I both have CHL and carry everywhere it is legal.

    Wal Mart is just another place to go.

    Prior post she was suprised I had it since still kinda new to both of us so out of respect she just wants to know when we are out together. She has no issue and I make it a posiive by seei f if she can tell I'm carrying or not. Other question I carry during the weekend since can't at work or the property and can't park elswhere and walk. I do carry a tac flashlite as non leathal as EDC. Better than nothing.

    Several Wal-Marts in Fort Lauderdale area - or close to - are located in very bad areas, and you often see there some very strange individuals hanging around. I do not like WW, but if I have to visit one nighttime then I drive 13 mile to the store that is located in a not that bad area.

    Hubby never asks anymore. He sees that I'm wearing clothing and doesn't need to ask
    He also knows I wouldn't step foot into Walmart, without carrying.

    Does that mean if you're not wearing clothing he needs to ask?

    Just trying to follow the logic here.
