    Since this is a barbershop, maybe it should be a shorn sheep?

    There age gun magazines at the barber shop I go to, and my barber carries a .38 on his ankle all the time. Nice place to get clipped.

    Let Me Tell Ya'...

    About my barber here in small town FL...

    He has a small 'hole in the wall shop'. He's been there for about 40-50 years...he's 78 years old! I've stopped in when he's not busy, just taken a nap on the bench inside his small one-chair shop. He only charges $7 for one of the best haircuts I have gotten anywhere...honest (this includes some $20 cuts too)...he won't take a tip either...

    He's usually playing a christian radio station and loves to talk politics. I had been coming to him about 2-3 months when the subject of crime came up, then the NRA...then weapons. I treaded cautiously as we talked about CCW, and that's when he pulled out a .38 from his right front pocket...then I did show him my Kimber Ultra. We both acknowledged the importance of being prepared for a cruel world.

    Needless to say, I have been going to him for almost 18 months now...great guy...his customers are mostly farmers and other local town's folks...and I assume...pro-gun people...

    I love small town Florida!

    Stay armed...keep 'clean cut'...stay safe!

    You too, can find a 'pro-gun' barber shop...

    Congrats for standing up for what you believe in. Maybe your conversation might help to change attitudes.

    I also am not able to carry in my barber shop.... but that is because my barber shop is located on a high security military base.

    Or came in bragging or showing off. I was thinking...why on earth would a hair salon of all places, post? The girls who work where I get my haircuts are never going to know whether or not I carry unless there is a SHTF situation while I'm in there, in which case their opinion won't matter much to me anyway.

    I drove away and called them as soon as I got home, asked for my stylist.
    Told her I got there and saw a sign in the window that said I wasn't welcome.
    She asked what sign that was.
    Told her about the no guns sign.
    "You carry a gun?" She asked.
    Told her I may or may not have had one with me every time she's cut my hair since January.
    Then I told her to pass on to her manager that while it was her right to post the sign it was my right to spend my money elsewhere.
    Told her I was really gonna miss having her do my hair and if and when the sign came down I'd be back.
    Good one, although I think I would have put it differently and not related the prohibition directly to myself, as in, "Your owner and/or manager don't trust law-abiding citizens who carry firearms, and those are the only people who would obey that sign. Who do they trust?"

    I'd call back and speak directly to the manager/owner and state you don't carry guns. Make sure to tell the manager/owner you are going to tell everyone you know to stay away from his/her business which doesn't trust honest citizens/customers.

    I think you did exactly the right thing. Maybe this will get the owner thinking but just as likely it will, in her mind, seem that she put the sign up just in time as she will probably see your call as proof that the sign kept an undesirable gun carrying nut out of her business. People like her don't see us as the good guys. They see us as nuts just waiting for that last straw for us to snap.

    It's amazing how different people can look at the same situation and see such vastly differing things. We know that we carry just to protect ourselves and our loved ones. They think we must be carrying a gun so we can shoot someone. I know that the last thing I want to do is shoot someone.

    Find yourself a real, honest-to-God barber. And old guy with a striped pole out front and car and gun magazines in the waiting area. You'll never go back to a salon. Trust me.

    I did the same thing about two or three months ago, though my set ran about $40 at Target. Saves me $20 per month and I can cut it whenever I want, instead of just once a month ... and my wife doesn't mind that I carry.

    Just checked, and there is no sign on my bathroom door, so I am still welcome.


    Until I started doing my own hair, I would go to one salon in town. In the winters, I wear a heavy denim shirt as a jacket. I would wear the shirt until I was going to sit in the chair. At that time I would take it off, exposing the butt of the gun. Only one of the gals ever noticed, and we talked about guns and where I worked and why I carried. Now I was wearing my work shirt which has the pawn shops name and mine, and she assumed that that was the reason that I carried. She was stunned to realize that the pawn shop is but one of the reasons that I carry, and it wasn't the main one. I have been approached by people in the next town over by people that recognize me from the shop, and not everyone I meet at the shop is always the most friendly.

    Any businesses that post against CCW deserve to get hit with an armed robbery.
