At that moment, it's just a guy shopping and he happens to be carrying a (poorly) concealed firearm. My intervention COULD change the dynamics present here in a very bad way. But, the guy COULD just thank me for my help and adjust his garment.

    In short, not worth the risk of turning a non-situation into a situation. Let it be.

    800lb gorilla principle. It's not that a lot happens at Wal-Mart specifically, it's that there are so damn many Wal-Marts, when something happens, Wal-Mart has a larger chance of playing host. :)

    If he is open carrying he will most likely smile and say thanks yes it's a _____.

    If he was conceal carrying he will cover up and quietly say thanks.

    Problem solved, you just made a new friend either way.

    People OC in Walmarts all the time where I live. Nobody really cares and you don't need a permit to do so either. None of my business.

    The OP's question was on concealed carry and not open carry. If I noticed someone that was grossly printing or fully exposed there would need to be some mental decision making before I approached him/her. Your brain would need to take in as many details about them to make the best decision possible. One person you might just walk away from while another you might go up to and quitely say, "you're showing" with a nod towards the firearm. Lots of other factors, are you with your family? Are they? If I was with my family, I would probably not say anything at all, to anyone. But I would certainly appreciate it if someone let me know if I got careless.

    The beauty of MN! haha.....

  8. I've seen it happen a couple times and I handled it like I would if I was telling someone that their fly was unzipped (quiet and friendly-like but a bit embarrassed to have to mention it) and threw in a comment about not wanting to scare they hysterical types that may be wandering around nearby. Both times they were appreciative and a bit embarrassed- like they had been walking around with their fly open.

  9. AR is concealed only - quietly tell them their hardware is showing

    My wife and I have both used this approch before, has work very well, and got a nice shooting parder from it once, .........on the other hand if, a stranger came up to me, while I was keeping to my own buisness, and flashed a badge and he was not a bona fide LEO of some sort, off duty, detective, mall ninja or whatever, I mean just a reg dude and pulls his weapon, and starts barking ordering me to the ground, he dam well better pull his trigger......before I do mine, .........I don't walk anywhere with my hands in my pockets for nothing..........

    Why would you want to do that to him? Would you want people to do that to you, not knowing that you carry legally? I certainly would not.
