    Hello From Tampa

    Hi I am t_bare,

    I am an avid fisherman, spearfisherman, motorcyclist, hunter, general outdoorsman...

    I have had a carry permit for around 15years. I have enjoyed reading many of your post and I must ask, What is it about carring your gun in a Wal*Mart?

    Welcome from Michigan!

    ETA: The Wallmart walk is sort of a Forum tradition for new CCer's, when the permit arrives, they load up and head for Wallmart. Do a search for Miggy's map (Miggy is a Moderator here). Got all the stops mapped out. Just sort of a fun way to initiate oneself into the lifestyle that carrying is. And helps to be among a bunch of unaware like the typical Wallmart crowd, as there is a tendency to be very self conscious as a new carrier. Like you, I was carrying many years before I got here.
    Regards, T Bone.
