    The Manager on duty does have the power to ask you to leave for OC. He may get into hot water with corporate but you have to leave or It's trespassing! I open carry in Northern Kentucky walmarts.

    Walmart has a policy of following the laws of whatever state or commonwealth they're located in, so if you live in a a place that allows open carry, then Walmart allows it, as well. Be aware, however, that even though Walmart's corporate policy is to follow the law, individual managers, assistant managers, cashiers, stock boys, greeters, and so on might not be aware of this, and might ask or demand that you leave. I suggest you do as they ask. I've heard about guys open carrying who will argue their case to the employee, which is a stupid move. Ask the employee their name, then leave, contact corporate, and file a complaint with them, including the name of the person who violated corporate policy. Or better yet, don't shop at Walmart at all, and spend your money with local businesses.

I was in the store for almost 2 hours and was not once asked about my OC till I was walking out the store.
    My response would have been along the lines of "Ok, here's my receipt, you start the processing the refund while I go and secure my weapon in my car. I'll be back for the money in a couple minutes."
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)

    Even if your state law allows it, it is up the the business as if they will allow it.

    A lot of it has to do with your response. I've had one experience where an employee came up to me and said "That's not a real gun is it?" I said "Yes it is." Most of them are crusaders, but won't assert their beliefs out of irrational fear of an armed individual. Just remain polite and use a level even tone and explain that you are lawfully carrying a weapon for lawful purposes as permitted by state law/constitution and the united states consitution. Most employees back down and apologize when confronted with fact. The one who did that to me is always at all times extremely helpful and puts on a friendly air whenever I am in the store now. However, there are the hard-headed who will never accept anything they don't agree with...

    Posted this in an OC Wal-Mart thread elsewhere on this forum.

    A buddy of mine that works in Asset Protection for them here in UT told me that NO Wal-Mart employee is allowed to say anything to a customer about OCing if it's legal for you to do so(state laws, etc...) I OC in the one in Sandy all the time and no one has ever said anything.
