    I most certainly do. I moved my bank accounts from one back to the other in our small town. The one I went to said they never will post. I live in a gun friendly county but work in a liberal college town. I have to watch where I tread. But I really don\'t see that many posted, but I carry the cards shown above and will not hesitate to pull one if the situation arises.

    Absolutely, furthermore, I have tried to have conversations with those owners who don\'t allow ccw and they typically don\'t seem terribly interested in keeping my business. They are not typically rude, but just refuse to understand how pointlesss those signs are.:( Oh well.

    I too changed from a bank that was posted to a more rights friendly one. I will not support any business that does not support the right of law-abiding citizens to legally carry.

    Couldn\'t say it any better.

    I would if I lived in an area where \"no carry\" was common. Fortunately, carry is easy here and I have yet to see a no CCW sign in my daily activities.

    If merchants that choose to refuse access to those of us who legally carry a firearm would simply take the time to better educate themselves about the requirements alone for gaining a CCW and not allow their decisions to be based upon ignorance and preconceived notions, perhaps the realization that we, as responsible citizens need not be feared would then be more widely recognized. When policies such as these that seek to limit our freedoms are based upon such ignorance, ignorance is clearly the winner. Yes, I do appreciate and go out of my way to patronize merchants that recognize my right to self protection. :rock::rock::rock:

    I would say its more like i do not go out of my way to remove my gun from myself when entering these places. I\'m kinda selfish like that, i care about myself more then i care about them :)

    I almost walked into a Municipal courthouse today with an edged weapon and a 1911. The signs they had were REAL small and I totally spaced where I was. Is there a ordinance stating how large or small the signs have to be in your neck of the woods?

    Thats a good point Apachon, i\'d like to know this too. If they really wanna be stupid and tell us we can\'t carry on their property, i\'d like them to at least make it obvious that we aren\'t welcome so i can treat them just the same.

    Thankfully, Texas has standards for signs in regards to wording, size and other factors...

    (3) \"Written communication\" means:
    (A) a card or other document on which is written language
    identical to the following: \"Pursuant to Section 30.06, Penal Code
    (trespass by holder of license to carry a concealed handgun), a person
    licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (concealed
    handgun law), may not enter this property with a concealed
    handgun\" or
    (B) a sign posted on the property that:
    (i) includes the language described by Paragraph (A) in both
    English and Spanish;
    (ii) appears in contrasting colors with block letters at least
    one inch in height; and
    (iii) is displayed in a conspicuous manner clearly visible to
    the public.


    or for bars (51% or more alcohol sales) and certain other places…


    (c) The sign required under Subsections (a) and (b) must give
    notice in both English and Spanish that it is unlawful for a person
    licensed under this subchapter to carry a handgun on the premises.
    The sign must appear in contrasting colors with block letters at least
    one inch in height and must include on its face the number \"51\" printed
    in solid red at least five inches in height. The sign shall be displayed in
    a conspicuous manner clearly visible to the public.

    The signs in Missouri have to be 11x14 with one inch letters.

    I avoid them as much as possible, but my work is posted. I keep it in my car during that time. No Guns, No Money cards for Missouri are availble at kinkos.

    Thumbs down No Guns, No $

    I found the supplier of the No Guns, No $ cards for those in Ohio- it's www.OHIOCCW.org. This appears to be a great site for any of you that may be interested in CCW issues in the Buckeye state. Unfortunately, I'll soon be adding my employer to the list of those that will not allow us to carry in their businesses...
