    Question 30.06 signs?

    This may seem like a really dumb question,but.......What is the designation of a 30.06 sign? I have seen one sign here in Flag, it's at the mall, kinda a funky looking sign, certainly not a legal looking sign, and isn't posted on all entry/exit doors. does anyone know of any links to this ? What's legal and what isn't?

    Here's the Texas DPS page on 30.06 signs:

    Note: Texas 30.06 does not apply in Arizona.

    Technically correct. However in Arizona any sign prohibiting carry makes the establishment off limits, so a 30.06 sign would certainly be sufficient.

    Saw one at the mall in Tucson, so small I needed my glasses to read it.

    I thought the sign was supposed to be 'prominent'?
    Why is it that you always find things at the last place you looked?

    I'm sure it was "prominent"... to a knat. I've seen stuff like that too, and it always ticks me off. It's like the owner of the business is purposely trying to entrap otherwise legally armed people.

    That's why I like that section of TX law. It lays out exactly what sign to look for, right down to verbage, size, color, and placement, so you always know exactly what to look for. Over in Louisiana (my new home), they have no such specs, and it makes it a lot tougher to quickly scan an entranceway for signage before walking in.

    Amen, just was in Oklahoma and I almost missed a 'No Weapons Allowed' sign that was easily bypassed without seeing. Honestly, I don't know how people can carry comfortably in states that aren't clear in what must be posted.

    Thank God Texas makes it clear!

    What I find ironic in the whole 30.06 signage law, is that that is the same number designation as a .30-06 rifle caliber.

    That's why I like the Florida version - the sign means precisely nothing. If they discover you are carrying, they can ask you to leave (and you must or risk felony armed trespassing charges). But you have not committed any crime by ignoring the sign and entering the business.

    And we all know criminals obey these signs. In Mississippi, local ordinances apply as to whether it is a misdemeanor or just a warning not to bring a weapon in.

    Thirty-aught-six, rofl! Quite ironic, I came into this thread assuming it was referencing the caliber!

    Reminds me of "Rule 303" from "Breaker Morant", if anyone's seen that.

    I don't see any problem with carring a gun into a business as long as it is well concealed and you do not cause a problem. I have never seen a no guns sign in Orlando's malls .maybe it's because I don't look hard enough.

    Same in Arizona. If you are caught carrying, they can not do anything except ask you to leave. If you refuse to leave, they can get you on a trespassing violation. My gun conceals easily enough that I don't concern myself with stupid NO GUNS ALLOWED signs anymore.

    so someone in AZ has posted a Texas 30.06 sign?
    I wish someone would ask them as to why they are using a sign that references the Texas penal code
