    There has been a lot of topics posted about
    OCing in Wal-mart and how their cracking down on it; so to speak. I live in Brigham City and have not had a problem OCing With them at all. I go to wal-mart maybe 2 or 3 times a week and have not been bothered once. I'm not saying that Some wally worlds are not allowing it but just in case anyone is wondering about the wal-mart in brigham thought this might help.

    Trapperchik just called me from vernal. She just got tossed out of thier wal-mart for OCing. Rather rudely at that, from what she said on the phone.

    From what she said it sounds like it was a shift or team manager,NOT the store manager. She told them to nevermind frinishing the transaction, she'd take her business elswhere. So I hopped on here as soon as she hung up to try to find out what they are doing with "us" curently and who to call.



    FWIW: I've been asked to leave the wal mart in Ephriam while OCing(due to a specific customers/soccer mom complaint) but that was years ago.

    Well, good for her, now she needs to make her purchases elsewhere, and fax them her receipt with an explanation.

    The reagional manager needs to be contacted. This receipt would be nice but wont prove anything they dont care about that side of it.

    That's exactly it I don't know who she needs to contact. I'm about as net savvy as a four thumbed monkey, and she has no netaccess where she's at.



    She's been in that wal-mart daily for the last week solid and no trouble til tonight.

    There are only three Wal Mart market managers in Utah. Any Wal Mart south of Lehi, is managed by Jim Curtis. He is based in the Orem Wal Mart. I have spoken with Jim in the past, and he does not frown on lawful carry of firearms.

    Sounds like Jim Curtis is exactly the person to contact.

    I may even contact him.

    I OC'D in the Vernal Wally World without any problems over the 4th of July weekend... I think Vernal would be a bad place to anger Gun Owners .

    Yeah, REAL bad town toupset gun owners. A good friend of mine works at basin sports there in town. They sell alot of guns up there.

    You ought to see the friends of the NRA dinner they do. It usually raises over $100,000 anually.:what::what:.



    Which is why the NRA isheavily funding the big range that they're putting in.

    OK, I just got off the phone with the manager in Vernal. He seemed genuinely concerned at what happened last night. Said he's going to get some more details of exactly what went on. He is going to then contact Jim Curtis(he is over this store) and then call me back. I'll keep you all posted.



    BTW: Sorry for the thread hi-jack.:? Hope I'm not stepping on toes. It just seemed appropriate to post this where we were discussing wal-mart anyway.
