    This is one of my nightmares

    In Michigan, we are an open carry state; It would be a suprise to bystanders, but not against the law.
    This is why the first thing I do when getting out of the car , is prior to doing anything, I stand with my back to my open car door, and make sure everything is tucked good and proper, prior to gassing up, and whatnot.

    Gas stations are easy targets for a quick robbery.. Why in the hell would you dicourage a law abiding citizen from carrying in your store? A CFP holder could save his ass some day.. Ya never know..

    I bet my face will go bright red and my mouth will disconnect from my brain if someone were to start giving me **** for carrying.. I should probably practice some responses ;)

    Anytime I get out of my vehicle,or do any bending or arm movements where I feel my shirt ride up I check and make sure my shirts covering my 1911 and spare mags.

    I made a similar bone-headed move just south of Richmond.

    When I am in the car for a long trip, I will often pull my shirt up over the grip of my ccw just so it's easier to get to from a seated position. It was a couple months ago - winter - and I had put my overcoat in the back seat. I was driving with the wife.

    I got out to pump gas without checking my shirt status. As I was pumping the gas, I turned and saw a surprised older lady with her eye on my belt. I tried to turn nonchalantly, then pulled the shirt down over my P226. My wife and I both used the bathroom and bought a water. We went back to the car to get back on the interstate.

    As I will pulling onto I-85 South, a VA trooper wheels in behind me and follows for about two or three miles and then turns off at the next exit. End of story.

    I assumed he ran my plates, saw we both had our CHPs from NC, and let it go.

    I'm glad you realized that other than a temporary inconvenience, it was no big deal, and you were 100% correct in you reaction.

    he won't do business there anymore.

    Good post Bark'n

    To the OP - if that guy was a manager and not the owner or stakeholder, he may not have the "managements" authority to refuse your patronage. A quick check on who owns the store and a short, professional letter expressing your dismay that you will now have to spend X amount of dollars at their competitor across the street might change things.

    Or not, but who cares....

    I am always amused if/when I enter a gas station only to find the dork behind the counter with a cell phone latched to his/her ear, ignoring the customers. I often see the same thing at those parking kiosks. I realize the job sucks, but they're paying you to wait on customers, not jawbone your squeeze.

    Why would I want to go exchange germs with some goofy kid at the counter or in a little box when I can conveniently pay at the pump?

    When I was a 15 year-old working at a service station, we pumped your gas, cleaned your windshield, gave you directions, walked your cigarettes out to your car, and would even change your oil and give you a tune-up - often while you waited. Today, they are called gas stations, not service stations.

    Now get off my lawn. Damn kids....

    Ha-ha, I do the exact same thing and I imagine that everyone is staring at me.

    Were you in NJ and required to do that by law 'for customer safety'??

    You left out checking the oil and tire pressure!

    Maybe dispatch calls it in to the NC licensing authority? I know that by law for reciprocity the reciprocal state must have a 24-hour verification system, if it's just the NC state police I can't imagine why they couldn't check based on someone's vehicle registration...

    You handled yourself well, but I would really rethink how you are carrying.

    Did you also pump Ethyl and re-vulcanize tires?
