    Here's a partial list of the national or large regional stores that don't post. Of course, Costco is right. As we all know, these establishments have turned into veritable bloodbaths:

    Barnes and Noble, Borders, Boston Market, BP, Cold Stone Creamery, Crate and Barrel, Dairy Queen, Dick's Sporting Goods, Gamestop, Gander Mountain, Giant Eagle, GMC, Half Price Books, Jennifer Furniture, Keybank, Lane Bryant, Lens Crafters, Lowes, Microcenter, Panera Bread, Petco, Petsmart, Pier One Imports, Sam's Club, Starbuck's, Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, Walgreen
    Great start to a list,. We need to keep that one going.. State by state,.

    I too am from Ohio, and am glad you posted this. I agree it is a good start to a list that I would like to see grow, and encompass all states. I'm relatively new to CC and am constantly looking for no carry signs on businesses. (They do have weight of law in Ohio).

    Did Costco put up the statute to give it an offficial appearance? Did they actually read the statute?

    Arizona Department of Public Safety-Concealed Weapons Permit Unit
    I entered a private business with my concealed handgun and CCW permit. The business did not have any signs posted prohibiting weapons. Shortly thereafter, an employee approached me and said they do not allow firearms in their business and I must take the gun off the premises. Can they do that? Yes. Arizona law permits private business owners (or their designates) to prohibit weapons from being brought onto their property, whether signs are posted or not. Private businesses are typically non-government operated businesses such as grocery and department stores, convenience stores, laundromats, banks, office complexes, etc. Failure to obey the request can result in your arrest for trespassing. (ARS 13-1502/1503)

    You should take a few minutes and inform someone at corporate of that and why. May not do anything but it can't hurt.

    Someone posting a sign will NOT get any of my money.
    Just another great thing about FL...few, if any signs...I've never seen one...and they mean absolutely nothing.

    The Ohioans for CCW website has a database of businesses that post, though I find it a bit unwieldy to use, so I just keep my own. Just keep a notepad in your car and a text file on your desktop on your computer. Once you've got a decent list on the notepad, transfer it to the computer, print it out and keep it in the car. Any additions you can add on that list, update on the computer, re-print, etc.

    Why not go in and speak to the store's manager about the issue--let him/her know that they will be losing the business of legal CCW folks if they continue with the posting.

    What the Manager heard (at least in California):

    Me and all my gun-toting friends, who are probably mentally unstable, militia forming rednecks, or worse, homocidal maniacs, will no longer be potentially terrorizing your other customers.

    ---Humor OFF---
    Seriously, the point to all of this is know what the law allows you to do. BTW, I'll be checking my local Costco next time I need 4000 rolls of TP, 55 gal of Olive Oil and all the free samples I can eat. : )

    Outstanding helitech!

    No, I don't believe it's corporate policy either... we have two COSTCOs here, the older one is not posted and the newer one is.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    Very nicely done. I'd love to see her reply.
