    christmas eve wally world LEO encounter.

    I went to Wally World, open carrying my 1911 on my hip in my SERPA holster. I was looking for summer sausage and some decent cheese to snack on at work tonight and I could not find any. There was a state trooper from SWAT on duty in the store working security and I approached him as he was standing there eating a hot dog. I broke the ice by jokingly asking, nothing like a quiet place to eat lunch right? and he laughed and said aint that the truth. I then asked if he was working security at the wal-mart and if he wouldn't mind pointing me in the direction of what I was looking for. He said sure and pointed me towards the Christmas foods area, and even went so far as to offer to show me by walking me back there to make sure i found it. He glanced at my hip once and complimented me on what a nice looking gun I had on my hip and wished me a Merry and safe Christmas. I conducted myself politely and made some small talk with him and he did not even check my permit. I continued my journey through wally world and cleaned out their shelf of 762x39 ammo for my AK. My gun did not point itself at anyone or at any time misbehave herself. Just thought I would share my positive non eventful open carry day at wally world.

    With some of the recent stories of bad open carry encounters yours is a welcome change.

    Such a normal encounter makes you wonder who's running the show and whether we could all get along without big government, the gun grabbers, and know-what's-best-for-ya's.

    What I find even more astonishing is that you braved Christmas Eve at WalMart at all!!

    Although, I may have to brave the after-Christmas crowd if we intend to eat after the big meals this weekend.
    Since payday landed on Christmas Eve-Eve, the fridge is REALLY bare. There's all of 3 hot dogs and some ketchup, if the buns haven't molded.... Plus we're out of dog food. Ugh! Maybe I will go at 2am....creepy people 2am people are tolerable, as long as there's not a million of them trying to get all the "deals" at once.

    That is the way it should be when you go into any store carrying IMO. Good. I'm glad you had a positive experience.

    Actually in Indiana OC does require a permit.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    IN,
    a far as I'm concerned has a great policy toward Carrying and all.
    What with the choice of a lifetime permit if you choose, in liew of the 4 yr., and less stringent on the rules of places that are off limits, and the encounter you cited, plus other similar such occurrences, and that spells good policy makers.

    If you had been carring a LCP would you have gotten different snacks? Brie and water crackers?
