FYI, click on the image to see the whole image, then it will make sense.

Well, if gun owners assume that this shop does not want their $$$, this will quickly correct itself with a new policy or an out of business gun store.

Yeah, I can't stand when a store that sales guns has a sign like that. There are two in the area where I live. They claim it's to keep people from coming in and waving it around, being stupid with it, etc.

Ruger SR9c Ruger LCP
Well we don't buy anything at the stores that have this posted on there doors. If they lose enough sales and figure out why, maybe they will take those signs down.
Though I may not agree, I understand why they might find it necessary to post that.
I would ask the owner why before I decided to take my business someplace else.

Some places have it for insurance reasons... at least as far as I've been told because of people pulling their carry weapon out and trying to check out holsters and other instances like that. Sometimes I've found that if you talk to the owners or workers and they know you cause you're a regular they don't care.
Protection is a responsibility not just a right.
Sorry about that, guys. Yup, a gun store that facilitates CCW training yet does not allow concealed carry in the store. It just doesn't make sense to me.
Unfortunately I was working and didn't have time to go in and discuss the policy, just went about my business. Next time I'm around I'll stop in and ask what's up. For now, I'm choosing the "vote with my wallet" option.
Still not at a computer - is the picture quality ok? It was taken and posted through the wordpress app on bberry.
I don't see anything wrong with it....after all the HALLOWED NRA held their annual festivities in a place that wouldn't allow firearms.
(Makes me sick)
I could agree with 1/2 of the sign. "NO LOADED WEAPONS" but to include CC is down right wrong.
"Someday someone may kill you with your own gun but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty."
"Leave the gun, take the cannoli."
David, those are similar thoughts to mine.
I am used to Gander Mtn and BPS where "No Loaded Weapons" signs refer to weapons in cases being brought to the smith, etc. And has been clarified by each store to mean that it does not include legal concealed carry. I have been in many other FFL shops that have similar signs and when asked, usually state that it's not in reference to legal ccw.
However, these guys have directly stated their policy on the front door. I'm not sure there's much room for discussion in it.
