    Take it or leave it

    Ok, say your in the car with your freind and a couple of his freinds that you have never met before. You pull up to the bank drive through and theres a problem with your account. they ask you to come in and talk to the staff about correcting your account. so you pull around and park but suddenly remember that you have a firearm in an iwb holster. would you leave the gun in your car knowing that you dont have anyway to lock it up? your freinds, freinds have been drinking and you have that feeling that if you put your gun in the glove department then they might take it out to have a look. and at a bank?! not a great idea! how would you handle this situation?

    I live in Florida and banks carry no force of law here even though they have a sign. I take it with me

    Take it in, as there is no law in my state preventing me from taking a firearm in to a bank. Concealed is concealed.



    Now, if you don't have that option.. unload, unchamber. Problem solved.

    You, however, could simply go back to the trunk and deposit your firearm, or (as I would do in your position) simply let the individuals in your car find out who you REALLY are...

    On a more important note, I would not be hanging around with drunk friends while I was armed...find other armed friends who don't have to drink to have a good time.OMOYMV

    Lock up your friends instead of the gun.

    I always wear my gun into my bank. No laws against it and no one knows. If it was against the law I would just tell the teller that now was not a good time and let her know when I could come back. They work for me.

    I'm a member of a credit union (and they're carry friendly ). If I had to leave it behind, I'd lock it in the trunk, in the safe or the cable lock I keep for such "emergencies."

    The OP's scenario seemed a tad contrived, and general answers impossible because everything is state specific. With that out of the way, where do I find the thumbs up icon? Ret deserves a big bunch of them for the sage advice.

    Law of stupids--- don't hang out with stupid people, as for example--- drunks.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Here in North Carolina the law was recently changed to allow concealed carry in financial institutions so I would just take it with me.

    It's a good idea to have a secure car or truck safe in your vehicle at all times. There are many occasions where you might have to secure your firearm in your vehicle. Being prepared = no problem. lock it up where no one can get to it.

    I take mine into the bank also. Best not to let anybody you don't really know, know you have a weapon on you at all.

    Unless this is time sensitive banking. You can always come back to the bank at another time. Without the passengers.

    Take it with me of course (No problem in PA), or go back another day (if banks were off limits). I would NOT leave it behind in a car if there were unlicensed people in the car. Period. Friends, strangers, doesn't matter. Leaving the gun with them if they are unlicensed is not an option - it's that simple.
