    I wear 511 pants often because I'm issued a buttload of them with my dept. So that's just pants that I don't have to buy. Other than that I'm a bluejeans kind of guy.

    But I know what you're saying. I used to think the same thing when a while back seemed like everybody and their brother was sporting a bluetooth phone thingy in their ear and walking and talking like they were Donald Trump making million dollar deals on the move.

    Practical, tough, long wearing clothing. And when you say "web belts" are we talking LBE or riggers belts?

    1 It's November, watch out for deer.

    2 I just came from my LGS where people buying CCH handguns were waiting in line to be waited on and there was a YL at the front desk answering questions on CHL classes. While I was paying for my electronic ear muffs three people got fliers and directions to where the nearest classes are held.

    Plus, you are in Walmart, be very glad the oddest thing you saw was tacticool, not BBW fetishwear.

    Indeed. After so many trips to Walmart no attire strikes me as odd anymore.

    Some people really want to be perceived a certain way and so they play dress up in an effort to 'look the part'. No different than suburban soccer moms wearing $500 Arcteryx or North Face jackets when a $90 jacket will do.

    we live in a world where a box of toothpicks requires instructions written on the back, complete with freaking pictures. we've got much bigger crap to worry about than what people are wearing to walmart.

    Brush Country camo is my favorite color, I wear it whenever I feel like it. I wear it as a western shirt, with jeans.

    If tree trunks were blue, I'd be invisible!

    Sometimes I suspect someone is actually close to or coming from hunting. Of course I have to also guess that location may play a part of this. Closest hunting to here is a few hours away.

    Maybe there is a Ghurka regiment deployed close to you that has not gone public yet. Might also explain that "Gangham Style" dancing stuff too.

    Sadly based on a couple different calls at a Walmart near here wearing no attire at Walmart is a frequent enough occurence to not be completely odd...

    The tacticool look is also closely linked to the guy shooting an $1000 AR with $3000 worth of gear on it he will never use to its full pontential because he "takes a class" once a year and shoots twice a year. One before the class and one a month later.

    I gotta go to Wal-Mart more. I've only been maybe three times and all I've ever noticed was people in sweat pants.

    Maybe he's there to pick up a shovel, garbage bags, and lime, because he caught some guy looking at his wife and daughter while they were bent over...

    Using commas as ellipses and not knowing how to use a contraction correctly makes you a paragon of intelligence.

    But I don't shop at Wal-Mart. And I've made money every day since I turned 12 years old. So I'm a stupid person concerning grammar.

    Enjoy your next trip to Wal-Mart. :) Tool

    Wallmart can be fun. I get my hair cut there, buy toilet paper and value packs of ammo and people watch. A couple of months I noticed a bunch of people looking in one direction and spotted a tall, gorgeous woman in a gold cocktail dress and high heels at the electronics counter. Her dress was about the length of a confortable tee shirt. They guys were enjoying the show, I saw one guy get punched in the arm by his W/GF, and the girl seemed to be enjoing herself too. Not your usual Wallmart shopper by a long shot.

    I was dressing like that when I was 12.
    For a year or two.
    Wanted to look like a soldier.
    Why the adults are dressing like that?
    I don't know and I really don't care.
    That's fine with me.
    Shot me first I guess.
