I stopped in the Rocky Mount, VA Wal-Mart yesterday afternoon with the intentions of snagging a Mossberg 835 for the upcoming spring turkey season. Of course, I only had my carry permit as my second form of ID; which I've used as my second ID for every gun purchase I've made from a dealer in VA for years. Nope... not at Wal-Mart. They didn't have carry permit listed as an acceptable form of second ID in their procedures... just the usual stuff - utility bill, passport, etc. I was truly surprised, and a little irked, that my carry permit, which proves I'm not a felon or a nut job, wasn't valid for ID purposes. Anyway, I'll be stopping back in this afternoon with my passport and my electric bill, just in case. On a related note, I saw at least 30 turkeys this weekend while driving. They were coming out of the woodwork in droves. I also saw the largest tom I've ever seen in my life. He was standing on the side of the road less than 200 yards from my house. I couldn't believe the size of this guy. I anticipate some good eating next month.
