    Ok,

    I am interested in others attempts to OC in Wally World in Washington. Which one did you go into? Did you get extra attention? Did a manager ask you to leave?

    I ask because I have done it a couple of times in 2 stores but I know the managers where I was at so I wouldn't get the same response as Joe Anybody. I have also worked in the stores and have gotten the calls about OCers in the store and have had to inform them of the state law.

    Been into Mill Creek, Everett, Marysville, and Mount Vernon countless times and have never been approached at all.

    I am a 22 year old white male who usually wears jeans and t-shirt/polo, sometimes with a short sleeve button up sloppy covering. No one notices me apparently.

    hello and welcome to OCDO.

    - I have been in our Walmart at Port Orchard, and well, absolutely nothing. Everyone seemed completely content to go about their business and enjoy their shopping, as did I. I have received a few interested comments about state laws and Open Carry, but thats about it. I been in several other major stores, and have not been kicked out or received any bad responses. - I carry a sixgun in an old fashioned holster set, so it's hard to miss, thus i can say for fact, most people are not bothered by it.

    - I think you will find that most will echo a similar response. In simple terms, we are in fact at a point where alot of people do know it's legal, and dont really care one way or the other, and thus we are accepted as normal "everyday" peoples and treated accordingly as it should be.

    Federal Way (Hwy 18 & I-5 one) and Lakewood here, no problems. Went in 4 or 5 days after the armored truck courier was killed there and while I was noticed, nothing was said, but the looks I got were of the approving nod-type.

    I can't count the number of Wally Worlds I've OCd in and never had a problem. I know I've been in the Port Orchard one several times, the one out at Buckley, the one down by the Supermall are three that pop to the top of my head.

    No panic for being hispanic. Maybe it's the permanent smile on my face or the fact that nobody would carry illegally in the open.

    My bad
    good old mount vernon wal mart. Ya i had a problem with this store on a shotgun they SOLD to me about 5 years ago. I bought a shotgun from them that broke days later and put it back in the box as purchased and went to MT. Vernon wal mart. when i reached the front door, gun is taken apart and cant be seen except for the box it came in, there lovely customer greeter yells "CUSTOMER HAS A GUN" and I mean yells this?? people everywhere are now looking at me. they ask me all kinds of rude questions about what im doing there with this and i keep telling them I bought it here and it is in pieces because it is broken! anyway it took me 1 hour of the front end yelling at me for bringing this gun in there store. I get very frustrated, because they sold it to me, about the problem and sked them what should i have done different because it says on the receipt bring to store if broken. The very educated customer rep rudely told me " you should have called us and then waited on the corner until a manager could come and relieve the weapon from me" WTF?? finally a sports manager comes to the front smiling and takes me and my gun to the hunting section. I asked him why I was treated like criminal for buying something you sell. he heard the story of what happened and listened to my wife vent on how humiliating it was to be looked at by everyone in wal mart as if we were about to rob them! I am kidding you not this mans face was so shocked to how i was treated that i think he swore. he then gave me to an associate as he left . returned gun no problems . when i was finished he found me before i left and said "I am so sorry for what has happened to you and I personaly will change our employees handling of any firearm." every employee had smiles on when I was leaving. I believe that guy was serious

    I was actually just at the Wally World on 192nd and 3rd here in Vancouver, WA. Greeter guy smiled and nodded at me when I walked in and I returned the favor. Walked around for maybe 20 going to the clothing, sports and HDTV departments; several associates saw me for sure, since they all smiled and went about their own things.

    On my way back out the same greeter guy waved and said "Have a nice day sir!" "Thanks, you too." I guess that was "special attention"? Sure didn't mind it though. Long as they're friendly, I'm more than happy to return the favor.

    The only time I've ever had any trouble was an elderly female greeter asked if I had a "concealed weapons permit". I told her that there is no such thing. She told me that her husband had just got his, to which I replied that there was no such thing. She snapped back with "you calling me a liar?", i retorted with " no ma'am" and explained the whole CPL thing versus CWP. Just then a manager walked by and she asked him, he told her to let me be (he was a former neighbor of mine). That was that.
    I am the person responsible for myself, my wife and my son. I take that VERY seriously.

    Were you in Richland, per chance?

    I was with a friend who was OC'ing at like 2am, went through the store just fine and on the way out the elderly greeter asked if we had a permit. When we explained, she then felt the need to ask us to leave. On the way out.

    We came back an hour later (empty holsters this time) and gave her one of the pamphlets.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill

    I was thinking of this the other day when I went into walmart, but since it is the reservation do we still go by state law or is it something different. I have heard of people being arrested or at least detained at the Marysville/Tulalip walmart from a family member that works there.
    I been there and had no probs.

    They won't arrest you the most they can do is ask you to leave.

    Doing a Thread Bump, as I did a bit of investigating into OC/CC on Tribal Lands. Most Tribes classify themselves as Sovereign Nations & so a State issued CPL is not valid on reservation. Each tribe is different, but for the most part, you have to get a permit through the Chief of Tribal Police &/or the Tribal Magistrate/Judge.
