I got this from another site, so here ya go

So you got your CCW.

We assumed that you have already chose a proper holster, mag pouch (or suitable combination of substitutes) and cover garment and played dress-up in front of a mirror a couple of hundred times. But now, it is time to go live in the real world. It is time for you to go to WalMart!

1) You must park your vehicle at least 50 yards from the entrance of a regular WallyWorld (75 yards for a SuperCenter.) As you head for the entrance, you must perform a scan of the area including checking under parked vehicles for BGs (Bad Guys.) Remember, grandma in an electric wheelchair is not a drive-by threat.

1A). Upon exiting car, surrepititiously adjust sidearm. Now don't touch it again unless your pants are about to fall off. Then tighten your belt

2) You MUST drive the shopping cart. No substitutes are allowed. Negotiating aisles full of screaming kids dropping cans of Chef Boyardee while Mom is on the cell phone and trying the latest Rosie O Donnell Makeup & Fragrances is a good test of patience and self-control.

3) No quickies! Your stay at WallyWorld must last no less than 45 minutes. You can hang out in automotive and even double check the Rapala lures to see what's new to kill an allotted rest time of 10 minutes. The rest of the time you must be on the move. An exception is made if you are with your significant other and she goes for the White Sale madness. You must park, wait and be ready to back your mate if things get hairy with the pillow throws or allergenic bedspreads.

4) You are gonna buy stuff so pick items from the top and bottom shelves to test your cover garment. Your mate can assist you and point out any deficiencies. If you are alone and store security or the cops have not arrived by the time you check out, you passed this test.

5) Check out: make sure you choose the busiest register. People will stand in close proximity and you must bear it with patience and avoiding contact. Beware of the people suddenly remembering a forgotten item and sending their mates to fetch it. They usually will brush against you on the way to get it.

6) Meal Time! If your WallyWorld serves Nachos, go ahead and get yourself a big serving of the suckers and wash it down with a Sam"s cola. If McD's is the choice at the premises, get fries, onion rings, apple pie and a large Coke. ALL MEALS MUST BE CONSUMED ON SITE! No To-Go's or you will be disqualified.

7) When you leave, repeat the scanning of the parking lot. Remember that now you are also dealing with a shopping cart that rattles like and old train and wants to go right all the time. Do not lose track of your surroundings because of this. If you have a car, open the trunk and introduce all your bags while facing outwards. Pick up Trucks: lower the tailgate and do the same. Keep scanning, you never know where the BGs might be.

8) REMEMBER: Yellow lights = WallyWorld Security. Red and Blue Lights = Cops.

9) - Make test fall on floor in busiest area - near register or anywhere crowded. See if concealment can still be maintained. If you lose that then go back to GO and do NOT collect $200

10) Restroom break (even if you don't have to go), go through the motions, figure out what your going to do with your gun, while sitting on the commode!

Or it could go down like OC does here in AZ.

1. Walk in say hello to the greeter who doesn't even react the slightest to you having a gun

2. walk around the store where people are generally oblivious to the fact you are even carrying, and the one who do notice, don't react in an alarmest manner.

3. Buy your stuff.

4. Go home.

At least that has been my experience.

If you go to walmart's info page online they do not have anything on rules and regulations for firearms being carried in their stores .. I think that any place that carries firearms and ammunition for firearm should be allow firearms to be carried .

I was at the Wal-mart on 202 and Arizona Ave and no one even questioned my firearm.

It's good to hear nobody bothered you. A few years ago I was in the WalMart on Grand near Bell, it was crowded and there was a guy OCing in the checkout lane. Somebody made a disparaging remark to him--I assume they retired to AZ from a 'scared of guns' state. It was actually pretty funny to listen to all the oldsters with the blue hair sitting in their electric chairs chew the gun-hater out and set her straight on open carrying.

Up here in UT the carry laws are nice. Open without a permit, concealed with one. Most people do the obligatory wally world trip as their first OC experience to help get used to having it, etc...

Once I get my permit I plan on doing the wally run, maybe start OC, then try CC and make sure I'm good and comfy.

Wal-Mart is the first place I went here in American Fork Utah. No problems at all in fact the only place I don't OC right now while waiting for my CWP is my work and it is still locked up in my vehicle outside. The only time I have had anyone say anything is a retired California cop that just wanted to know the rules in Utah. By the way this is my first post and I am proud to carry a C9 open. I love the gun.

As a person who conceal carry's in Florida. I really relate to this and it sums up my normal Wal-Mart shopping experience. Good times!
