    Check your firearms at the door?

    I recently started carrying, IWB at my 4:00 and my BUG on my ankle. I went into a "Large Chain" hunting and outdoor supply store and they had a firearm check station at the door. I thought it was a little weird that a "gun friendly" place would ask you to leave your firearms at the door.

    Do you keep walking, check your guns, or leave?

    Keep walking. It usually does not apply to CC.

    I would check with your state laws and check the verbage of the sign. I would not trust "usually does not apply to CC" as a reason to proceed unless you know you are IAW the law.

    Well of course suntzu, I figured that was common sense. But a lot of those signs read like this, especially in a gun friendly store like the OP stated above.

    In my state I am lucky enough that unless it is a federal building all they can do is ask me to leave. Even if they have signs posted at the absolute worst I am looking at being charged with tresspass, and that is usually if I don't leave if they ask.

    In Bold: I stopped assuming people had common sense a long time ago LOL
    (not talking about the OP)

    And if the sign was tha explicit I do not think the OP would be asking.

    As others said, most of them apply only to guns being brought in to sell/get worked on. Just read it carefully.

    At jays sporting goods in MI. You only check them if you plan to take out of holster at all in the store, to have it looked at or anything else. If not OC or CC, they won't give you a second look

    If people don't have common sense and take legal advice from me on here, I hope they'd have the decency to PM me and offer me a payment... Even if I'm wrong lol!

    :) The sign did not distinguish between Open and Concealed, it merely said firearms. I didn't want to ask at the counter if there was an implied difference, hence calling attention to myself.

    Even more interesting was there was no sign on the front door, the sign was right inside the front door.

    Maybe give them a call for clarification before you go in next time. That way the will not know who you are, and you will have your answer.

    My favorite is the sign at my LGS that says, "that is a a nice gun you have there. Please keep it holstered."

    BASS Pro and Gander Mountain policy is if your taking a gun for service, or sell/trade, or accessory shopping that will require un-holstering you have to have it checked. CC/OC not a problem, just walk on in.

    DOH! wow can't believe I didn't think of that one. Could have just walked outside and called from my cell.
    Thanks!

    If that turns out to be their policy for all people that are armed regardless if they have a CCL, I would be taking my business elsewhere. The only reason I'd go in there would be an excellent sale or if they were the only store within an easy drive.
