    One should not sell a firearm to a person one does not beleive can be responsible with it... Period!

    In Texas, a facility must have a specific sign printed according to the 30.06 statute to exclude lawfully carried concealed handguns. A "No loaded guns" sign, therefore, does not apply to a CCW if the individual has a Concealed Handgun License.

    If a gunstore posted a valid 30.06 sign, I'd have to think long and hard about ever doing business with them again.

    The only exception I make is for gunshows. I don't like it, but I live with it, because they're a unique venue, and the dealers aren't to blame for the show policy.
    Cheers,

    Ccw Signs

    First; Thanks for the welcome to the site. It's interesting and informative.

    The Sportsman's Warehouse in our state has the sign, "please keep concealed firearms concealed. Others check in at the desk unloaded." The words may not be exact, but a CCW permit is no longer required in Alaska. Anyone may carry concealed or open. I interpret this as keep it holstered, open or concealed, unless handling in the store is required.

    While in the military I was a unit armorer and I always had a "safe barrel" filled with sand for clearing weapons just outside the door of my building.

    I think anyone requiring unloading weapons has a responsibility to provide a safe place to do it. I will make my decision at that time to spend my money there or not.

    I agree with some of the above in support of the 2nd A. without exceptions. It's very simple language.

    I can see both sides of this issue.

    Having worked in a gunstore years ago, you would be amazed at the number of "idiots" that own guns. Do I want to take their guns away? No, but I don't want to be near them either.
    I shop at a few local shops that have the sign, but they don't apply to me. I have the owner's permission and my "Creds" which override any "No CCW".

    BTW, I think this is my 1099th post.

    Visting Beautiful Yuma, AZ this morning I started searching the local gunshops. Only one had "the sign". There were a bunch of people in the parking lot, and I certainly didn't want to leave my 1911 in the truck. I stuck my head in the door and asked the owner if I unloaded the gun, could I bring it in locked open for him to hold. He said "get your a** in here, that's the insurance company's sign, not mine!

    If the weapon is truly carried concealed and remains that way then the reason the shop owner posted the sign (because he and his employees do not want to be shot by someone whipping out their CCW piece and having a ND) has been fulfilled.

    The indoor range and shop I go to has a similar sign. I would bring a couple in the case with one on my person, typically deep concealed and not fired that day. After getting to know the guys at the desk and giving them a chance to asses my gun handling they told me not to worry about the sign. I never gave them reason to be worried though because a loaded weapon never was exposed or made it out of my holster while in the shop.

    I can not honestly remember the policy of the Coal Creek Armory in Knoxville, TN. If anyone does please let me know. I ususally just go to the FOP or another outdoor range near the house.

    My question to the owner/manager/staff has always been, If it's unsafe to carry a loaded firearm,then why are YOU doing it.
