    Default Walmart Open Carry 9/14

    ON 9/14 I went to my local Walmart in Mansfield, Tioga county. I was packing my Colt 1991A1 openly. The only mod to the 1991A1 is the addition of a CTC laser grip. No one cared.

    I prefer not to open carry in general but I'm glad no one cared. I hate most human interaction so I do anything I can to avoid drawing unwanted attention to myself.
    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

    No one cared, because in all my years of shopping at Walmart, associates scatter like cockroaches when customers come near them.

    I enjoy assisting customers find what they need. I'm one of the few I've noticed (on my team) who actually attempts to follow the "10 foot rule".
    "Technically" associates are supposed to greet every customer within ten feet of them, ask if they need any help finding anything, and thank them for shopping at Walmart. (although I leave out the corny part, thanking them)

    The initial (computer based) training is very heavy on customer satisfaction, but I've seen almost zero reminders from management in regards to customer service - and that's one of the things my specific position is supposed to include - assisting shoppers locate what they need.

    In one of these Walmart threads, I said that they lost a good employee when they made these recent announcements, and while I detest the fact that I have to work there under the new changes, I find that I can't be an uncaring asshole even if I try - I still help customers, I still stop and straighten a box on a shelf that could fall and injure someone, I still pick up a piece of trash that someone could slip on...
    I can be an asshole on here, but in real life, hey... I just gotta be me.

    I'm not going out of my way to help Walmart, and I won't be as prone to help out behind the scenes now, but I'm not going to be a dick to people who are just looking to find the water chestnuts.

    So much for looking forward to transferring to the sporting goods area and getting "the key".

    Thank you. I appreciate you showing the flag.

    Shows that there is no harm in it.

    Shows that there is no benefit in Wal-Mart's bed wetting approach to gun rights.

    You’re fortunate living in bumfuck. Try that at a Wally’s in SEPA and see what happens.

    Edit: just saw IT’s prior post...

    Depends upon how long that you're there. If you don't get caught by the Man and you use a gift card or cash, you could pull it off.


    I don't know the particulars of trespass, defiant trespass and PA case law on open carry and CCWs.
