As a new member (just applied for my CC permit last week) who has spent some time reading these forums, I'll naively ask what the inside joke is regarding doing a "Walmart Walk" following issue of the CC permit and/or at any other time?

 

Apparently it's all the hype of what I should do when I get my permit. :cool:

 

Thanks!

Walmart is known for not posting, which makes it a great place to take your first stroll with your CCL, otherwise known as the wallywalk. I took my first stroll at a Mariano's because I don't have a Walmart close to me.

Ya but you can't buy ammo at Mariano's,

 

At Walmart you can buy ammo, and buy it with your CCL.

The first time I lawfully carried a firearm was very memorable to me, and no it wasn't a "wally walk" :D

 

The first time I legally carried my sidearm was in PA, as I stood in front of the liberty bell @ Independence Hall! And no, I don't mean INSIDE the building (AFAIK you cannot carry inside the buildings/tours), I mean as I walked down the sidewalk in front of it!

 

I'll NEVER forget that!

Back to school brawl leads to woman pulling gun at Novi Walmart

NOVI, Mich. (WJBK) - Shoppers at a Walmart in Novi, Mich. were in for some frightening moments as they witnessed a woman pull out a loaded gun Monday afternoon. Police say the gun was pulled out during a fight over school supplies.

"It was in the back to school section over a notebook," says Novi Police Det. Scott Baetens.

Novi officers say two Farmington Hills women, ages 32 and 46, were inside the Novi Towne Center Walmart, shopping for school supplies. Apparently, so was a 20-year-old South Lyon woman and her mother, 51.

"One girl was going to buy a notebook. There was one left, some pushing resulted," Baetens says. "They began to argue who was the rightful purchaser of that notebook."

Both duos of women were not backing down, as police and witnesses described the two women pulling the younger woman's hair. That mother got shoved out of the way as the three continued to fight. That mother then pulled out a gun.

"She's a valid CPL holder," Baetens says. "She pulled out her firearm and tells them to stop attacking her daughter while pointing the gun at them."

The fight quickly ended as customers were seen running away and police were called."...

2 women were attacking the daugther following the at the time that the mother pulled the gun. Sounds like disparity of force.

"It was a senseless act of violence all the way around," Baetens says.

Novi police say they need more witnesses to come forward as they work to get surveillance video from the Walmart to get a closer look at what happened. Police spoke with prosecutors, who hope to determine who the aggressors were and if the woman, in fact, pulled the gun in self defense. Those four women are all facing possible charges.

"A simple assault could be just a local ordinance, a 90-day misdemeanor," Baetens says. "All the way up to felonious assault with a firearm, which is a felony."

Police say the gun was loaded but no round was in the chamber. No one was hurt.

In the end, Baetens says he's unsure who got the notebook.

They probably could have gone to customer service and found notebooks in the return carts. I could open my own store off the merchandise that is returned.

Participation prize of 100 complimentary grey plastic shopping bags to the next 100 posts. Not posters, but posts, meaning it is possible for some lucky bast**d to win up to 10,000 of these official walmart flags. Besides Walmart's quality groceries and food like items, these valuable prizes can also hold such goodies as used cat litter, compost for your garden and in a pinch for smothering your trespassing neighbor or no longer useful to society family members. 

These are the official and authentic licensed walmart bags authorized and produced by their China flagship facility-accept no substitute!

I will have to take a trip to my local Walmart one of these days and look for signs. The ones in my area (Dupage county) don't even sell guns or ammo. I guess they can do whatever they want even if they have a sign, they still can choose to have you arrested or not. I wouldn't worry about it as long as we can confirm the policy is guns are allowed for shoppers.

I know that's an old post but my Walmart will sell me ammo at 4AM on my nights off. I work nights and usually there is somebody with a FOID card so they can legally sell it. The only Walmart in Dupage County that I know of that doesn't have an ammo case is Bloomingdale. My local one will ask me if I'm there to buy ammo when I walk in. - "no, just kitty litter".  I never saw signage at any Walmart.

Bloomingdale has an ammo case, I just purchased 1575 rounds of Remington .22LR there the other day.

 

The Walmart that doesn't have an ammo case is the Walmart Super Center at 801 N Randall Rd, Batavia

I believe you. I seldom go to that one, I have three that are all about the same distance from my house. I know a while back they didn't, I went there because they had wipers that I wanted in stock. I have one that is closest if you take a shortcut and that's the one that I usually go to. Plus if I jump off the highway and take a different route home from work, I'll pass right by it. It's funny being greeted by the guy who runs the front end. Ammo? No, aspirin. OK.

Your right! That was the one. I was looking for a Rain-X rear wiper for my Jeep and they were the only Walmart that had one. No ammo but lots of wipers. I knew it was off of 53 and Lake.
