    I agree, but don't those signs have force of law in TX?

    No. They do not. In Texas, there are very specific requirements for signs. There is specific text that must be supplied in both English and Spanish, the letters must be block letters in a color that contrasts with the background of the sign, and the letters must be at least one inch tall. Property owners can also just hand you a piece of paper or a card that contains the text in English and Spanish, or they can tell you orally, in which case, they do not have to meet any specific requirements. Just saying "no guns" would be sufficient.

    Rugerguy one of the perks of carrying in MN is that the signs on the door don't mean much. They actually have to notice that you are carrying and ask you leave before you would be in jeaporday of getting in trouble. Since most of us carry concealed, the signs have little to no effect on me and where I carry.

    I do always mention it to the management when I come across them because they need to know it is pointless.

    I recently switch to M&I bank from Fifth Third. First time I walked in, to speak with the manager I saw their "NO GUNS" sign. I went into the managers office, introduced and explained I was LEGALLY armed and EVERY time I will come in I will be armed. He looked at me and said "Ignore it."

    No sign no business, I move on to a competitor that doesn't post one

    I never leave it in the car because I won't patronize a business that prohibits my carrying.
    AT 30% no that is way too much money but I have yet to see a state over 3% licensed; yes, they will endeavor to keep the 97% pleased. So, it "is" all about the money and smokers never elicited the irrational fears firearms do although cancer is a much more diabolical way to die!

    I've seen a ton of stores that post "No Hoodies" with the hood up. They didn't have a no firearms sign.

    In my part of AZ if you see a male in a hoodie he is generally one of two things. Homeless or a banger!!

    I know in Wisconsin that a business that posts a sign not allowing concealed weapons on property will have higher liability insurance. Owners who post signs wave the right for their employees to protect themselves thus the owner takes on all liability.

    Bass Pro Shops (in CO) requires checking guns at service counter. It makes me laugh that a sporting goods store would risk alienating a great share of their customers. Whem asked about legal carry 2 employees have said No and 2 have said Yes. I would like to hear other's experiences. For now I will believe the Yes's or shop somewhere else.

    I carry every single time I go to Bass Pro Shop, those signs are talking about customers that are bringing a firearm in to be worked on. Same as Gander MTN. What tehy don't want is for you to bring in a rifle to get worked on that is loaded and you thought it was unloaded, that's a bad situation. The same with a pistol when you are looking for a new holster. Bad idea to try out a new holster with your CCW that is loaded.

    MAYBE. That is not what their sign says or at least half their employees understand. Other gun stores I frequent have a CCW disclaimer on their "No guns in the store" sign. I do have CCW friends who will not go to Bass Pro due to their vague policy. One would have a hard time arguing "intent" based on what the sign says.

    Check with your Store and post back, I'll do the same, but I've heard of people asking in many store and being told it only applies to OC and not CC. Signs have no force of law here in VA so I could care less, but I still don't like to give my money to companies that pull that crap, ESPECIALLY one the sells guns!!!
