    Actually I seem to recall that the eventual determination after a dozen or so threads on this issue in as many states is that WalMart policy allows for individual store managers to reserve the right to ban guns as they see fit. I'm not willing to cite to authority now, though, so take that as worth what you paid for it.

    With that said, WalMart is in part a gun and ammo store, and I've never been looked at askance while OCing in WalMarts in Virginia, and most folks report the same. I wouldn't anticipate any problems, and corporate policy defaults to state law unless the manager actively decides differently (once again, assuming I'm remembering correctly). Just make sure you aren't the victim of an attempted gun-grab by a mall-ninja wannabe.

    I OC'ed in the Beloit, WI walmart and I was stopped and asked about it and asked to leave until the could verify that is was in fact ok for me to carry in THAT store. It is not up to corporate, but up to the District Manager of that Particular Walmart. I agreed to leave and they called me in 5-6 days and said Yes, They spoke with the DM and he is all for OC'ing in HIS store. Every Walmart has its own say-so whether you can carry or not. I believe most do allow it tho...

    Wrong, corporate stores follow corporate policy. Individually owned stores follow their own policy.

    Correct, if you ask, they will most likely say no.
