All this time I have been reading about others, and touting how it is here in Montana. Well I guess anything can happen given enough time. I don't carry a recorder, or even a pad/paper as I have not had an issue anywhere here to date.
I have also been in this particular Wal-Mart (Helena) many, many times, and so has my wife.
I was back in the dairy section, having been in the store about 10 minutes. Woman walks up to me and asked if I was LEO. I replied that I was not, and then she asked me if I needed a license to carry open like I was. What followed was her asking questions, and me providing information about Montana law, and what I had read here regarding Wal-Mart corporate policy. I did ask her several times if we needed to contact the district manager, or if there was an issue and she was asking me to leave. Each time she affirmed that she was just getting some information. In the end, she thanked me, and I finished my shopping. I was also there with my 9yo son, who had just finished a defensive pistol competition both of us had gone to.
