    That will work great, I'm sure Though, I think he was referring to the email in the OP...

    I shop there as well. The way I see it is that I follow state and federal law while carrying. In the Florida laws it doesnt say I cant carry in Costco, or Banks for that matter. When I go into anyplace and it says "no guns" I still carry because thats only a company rule not a state or fed law. Does that mean bad guys are not going to bring their guns into a bank or costco etc...No. So either will I. Just follow the law and you will be fine.

    I'd have to agree with most here, if there's no sign at the door and your weapon is concealed then this really isn't an issue. If for whatever reason I was confronted by a Costco employee about this, I'd go to the counter and get my membership refund then and there and never be back.
    That said, I usually feel like I need a gun in Walmart moreso than Costco, but you never know.

    In most states wouldn't they consider you trespassing if they asked you to leave then you went to membership?

    I live in the Phoenix area and have had occasion to shop at least 4 Costco locations - Tempe, Gilbert and Chandler. Two stores have had the "no firearms" sign near the entrance consistently over the 9 years I've been here; 2 have added the signs to my knowledge (observation) over the past 12-18 months.

    I care less what a company's policy is concerning the carry of guns in their establishment. I carry everywhere it's legal to, even in Costco's, and being it's concealed, never had a problem. If asked to leave, I would and more then likely not frequent that business again. Until then, I don't let any business anti-gun policy (if i know it) affect whether I shop there or not.

    It depends on what they tell you to do. If they say that you're welcome in their store anytime but, in the future, please leave the firearm behind, then sure... If they "ban" you from the premises? Then no. Not really that hard to figure out...

    maybe going into costco is fine where you live but in some states if the store is properly posted/signed you could face arrest.
    for example in TX I believe in addition to some jail time ignoring a 31.06 sign can get you a 10k fine as well

    That is correct APVBGuy. If sign's had the force of law here I would have to obey them. I should of been clear to state that first so my intent would be understood, but I thought it was implied.

    I'm a Costco member and carry concealed there every time I go. If it's not against state law then I got my carry gun on me.

    Yeah...that policy statement pretty much looks like a "cover our butts" legal caveat. I'm thinking..don't ask don't tell also.

    I went to my local Costco in Plano, Texas yesterday and the only sign I saw said: "The unlicensed possesion of a handgun on these premises is a felony...". So at least in Texas...carry on!

    I looked hard but didn't see anything posted at my local Costco in Greensboro NC. Glad to see that.
