    Interesting thing happened today

    Went into a pawn shop today (no 30.06 sign), carrying my glock concealed under my shirt. As I'm walking around, one of the clerks asks me if im carrying a gun. Im kinda taken aback but tell her yes I am. She tells me that I have to leave it in the car. I ask her why? She says its for their safety. Now, I don't even want to argue this incredibly flawed logic. So, I just tell her that because its not posted, that I legally can carry in their store. That seemed to appease her and she walked off so I continued to look around. She never asked me to leave. How would yall have handled this?

    I would have asked how she noticed I was printing, and then left with the knowledge that my concealed carry game needs improvement.

    it was under your shirt, but it evidently wasn't concealed. just out of curiosity, what kind of holster, shirt, carry position?

    Are you carrying a gun sir????? NOPE...

    They can ask all they want, but you do not have to tell them. IMO you made a mistake by doing so. She could have called the police, and you could of had fun with them....Remember, the store owner and employees set the rules, not you. If she would have asked you to leave you would have had to ..

    "Are you asking me to leave?"

    If she says yes, then leave (and I wouldn't go back).

    Have to agree my response would be how bad was it showing that she noticed and if she was asking me to leave, some people are fine with it some arent, if its brought to attention its usually the latter.

    Well it was pretty obvious how she knew, no need to ask. My holster that I normally carry at 5:00 was at 3:00, sticking out more. As far as them setting the rules, in tx. a sign has to be posted. If she had asked me to leave, I would have. Thats why I stated "she never asked me to leave".

    I never said she asked you to leave.

    I was telling you how I would have handled it.

    I probably wouldn't have stayed even after the conversation you had. If they don't want my business, I won't give it to them. Plus, I wouldn't want to deal with the police in case she remembered the conversation differently.

    If not "No but is concealed carry not permitted in this "gun" store?"

    I dont try to educate the lemmings, after all, knowledge is power. The lemmings have already gained to much power. I would have simply left, along with my money.

    Obviously you weren't concealed well enough.

    Obviously they did not want your money.

    I like to go with the obvious answers.

    By her telling you it had to be left in the car, you received verbal notice. Law states either posted with valid 30.06 sign, or be give notice. If she had pursued it by calling the police, you would be facing criminal trespass charges. Verbal statement of this type qualify as notice.
