To be honest, I miss the brick and mortar days. There is a lot to be said for seeing and touching a product, before deciding to buy, or not buy. You can't tell much from a picture and generic description.

For what it is worth
AS a State of Tennessee Concealed Carry Handgun Instructor....what I see on the range is that most people carry small concealable semi autos in 9mm or .380.  Out of a class of 40 students I might get one or two (usually women) who carry revolvers.   What I do see is that in many instances the guns people carry are not fitted to them and as a result they have difficulty handling them

And for what it is worth, I have seen many semi autos go "click", when they should go "BANG!". My wife got one of those little .380 semi autos, don't remember the make. While shooting it one day, the slide fell off. Not a fan of just any pistol, but revolvers just don't fail.

Too many folks have cc guns that they do carry but other than the initial ccw course don?t go to a pistol range [to shoot with no pressure] or to an idpa match [to shoot under pressure] to see if they can really operate the gun. I coerced my wife to several idpa matches to get her up to speed with her Detective Special. But she was not a gun gal so her revolver became her house gun when I was on night shift and she never carried. Got her to do a couple of cas shoots but it wasn?t her cup ?o? tea. She did like buying fancy dresses and hats with plumage though.

Went to a CAS/Zoot shoot. Afterwards went to Walmart. My CCW was a 1911A1.

Fascinating ... in ABQ the Walmarts all have "computer paper signs" that essentially say "no firearms"  period.

However Target and Smiths (Kroger chain) have nice professional signs that cite state laws and indicate that Concealed Carry with a permit is perfectly fine.

guess where I shop?

The way I understood it, Walmart doesn't want "open carry". This may change from area to area, store to store. I just pull my t shirt over most of my 1911. I figure, if it is enough for a lawman to say it is a concealed weapon, good enough for me.

I will leave nothing to whim of - or interpterion by a LEO ?.

If it shows or even prints there is a chance of a not so harmonious confrontation ..if there is posted "BAN" I don't enter
I wont  go to Starbucks or patronize any established posted carry ban business, Ill shop or partake elsewhere.

 I feel the 2nd Amendment and my State carry laws allows me to choose when & where I wish to carry, not a corporate policy.

I will  take notice of their policy and not open my wallet for their profit.

I haven't much choice of where to shop. 20 minutes to Wally world, or 45 minutes to Kroger. The only other choices in town, are an IGA or Harvey's. Both have poor selection and high prices. I hate Walmart, but I hate having to drive to Dublin too. If we are out there anyways, I prefer Kroger's. Better food, selection, and with their deals, good price.

I have been looking for firearms notices at Walmart, and have not seen any at all here. I don't push too hard, but don't cower and hide my gun either. Quite a different atmosphere, compared to Central Flordidia.

Can't say if Central Florida Walmart's have a posted gun BAN or not ?.

I don't go to Walmart ?.period  ? or Target ( which BTW is an IRONIC name )  ::)

"SHE" does 99% of our grocery shopping,... Publix Winn Dixie and for paper product & cleaners etc.  Walmart

I think there may be IGA & Kroger around or they may have pulled out of Florida

I would kill for a local Publix! The closest one is on the other side of Macon, more than an hour drive. And in Macon, carrying is recommended.

My take on CCW and discriminating  retail establishments  (entry Bans )


If a terrorist - mentally unbalanced - enraged subject or crazed youth is going to unleash mayhem he or she is going to do so and be able to get the devise to use .
whether it is a Firearm-knife-Improvised explosive device-lethal substance or motor vehicle.

They have surprise, usually stealth to use against a little expecting populous.

Now add that to an Advertised soft ( no gun permitted ) zone , and the populous are merely sheep for slaughter.... with 0 % chance ( save luck)
 
Truth is a Concealed carry may only enhance survival if you have the chance to bring it to battery.   

However 0%  VS  marginal better percentage is still worth carrying....

If Corporate Retail is relying on a sign in the window advertising entry Bans for safety of its patrons , they are neither safe nor allowing for a constitutional right for law-abiding patronage....

They do not get my money, they do get my scorn

Publix usually has a decent meat department, and their friends chicken is pretty good. Only been disappointed once.

If I ever find a Publix, I will. They aren't as numerous in Gawgia.

Ditto to what the Major said!

As to the original topic, for most of my LEO career my off duty weapon of choice was either a 45 ACP Commander or, once they were introduced a Colt Officer's ACP. Those choices continued after I retired until arthritis swelled my knuckles to the point I could no longer manage the 1911. I switched to 45 ACP Glocks for their wider, plastic grip frame which absorbs the recoil impulse instead of bashing my thumb joint. I mostly carried a Glock 30, then switched to the Glock 30S with its slimmer, lighter slide and barrel. I'm currently carrying a Glock 36 while the G30 frame goes in for some re-contouring and stippling.
