    Open Carry in Practice: Who's done it? | Vigilance Elite

    The policy from WalMart Home Office is that they'd prefer no one OC in the stores, however it's up to store-level management to make that decision if to allow or not.

    Open Carry in Practice: Who's done it? | Vigilance Elite

    I prefer to open carry over concealed carry, lately. It just all depends on the plans of the day. Been doing more trips to Costco lately & know their dislike for responsibly armed citizenry, so have to CC when going there. Unfortunately winter is here & been doing a bit more CC over OC.

    Walmart requesting no one open carry in stores

    Another idea is to talk to Walmart associates that support the 2nd Amendment, as associates are allowed to buy stock via payroll deductions.

    WA Insurance Commissioner sues USCCA for violations..

    The USCCA program is not insurance, as there is nothing on their website listing the Self-Defense SHIELD as insurance. Mike Kriedler & other states' Insurance Commissioners are classifying it as insurance.

    WA Insurance Commissioner sues USCCA for violations..

    How can lawful use of a firearm be considered illegal activity?? By Washington State's own definition, technically all pre-paid legal services are not allowed as any of those services could be used to conduct/defend illegal activity.

    how to fix walmart

    Actually depending on the community, some small businesses get more business because of Walmart. I've noticed, in some situations, that the small business owner changed things up by offering goods/services that Walmart does not. The small businesses that do shut down did not adjust to serve...

    I did OC in 2 Walmarts today with no issues at all. Just a few looks from customers & associates, but nothing else. The 2 Walmarts I visited are the one on Sprague in Spokane & the one at Airway Heights.

    Are we firearm owner/carriers pointing fingers at the wrong entities?

    There seems to be a correlation between mass shooting events & things happening that shed a negative light on the Democratic Party, or the news happens to be slow.

    Part of the issue with OCing of long guns is how the person is carrying the long gun, which to some can cause warranting alarm.

    Eastern WA OC Report

    Had to run a few errands in the Tri-Cities today. 1st stop was the Chase on Road 68 in Pasco, where the staff are used to seeing me carry. A few patrons gave double looks, but nothing more.
