    There is a gun store here at encourages and welcomes OC and CC in their store. They have a sign on the front door. They are also not pushy and will just shoot the breeze with you if you'd like. Awesome guys. Beats a lot of other stores in LV.

    Sounds like a great outcome.

    Let me know which shop this is so I can check it out next time I'm back home visiting family. When I was home over Christmas, I was having trouble finding gun shops. Most of the ones I frequented when I lived there are gone.

    Good job; It's great that you cleared up all the misinformation
    Just think if you had not contacted him, then from then-on, you relate what happened to others, and they stopped going there, and so on and so on, a good pro gun business would have been hurt

    I go to Savannah on business sometimes and always stop in that shop. I just read this thread the first time and I was dumbfounded - glad things got straightened out.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    The shop keeper needs to keep in mind that, ITS THE BAD GUY THAT WONT CHECK THE GUN AT THE DOOR...and not the law abiding gun owner.

    There's a local gun shop that doesn't allow carry - I don't shop there. There are other stores that don't allow - I don't shop.

    While I would NEVER advocate anyone violate the law: As more and more mess hits the blades in more and more places, I become less and less concerned with the pure legalities of where and when I can carry.

    If I do it right, no one knows.
    If I don't have it and need it, I might be dead.
    If I need it, the LEAST of my worries is the legality of it.

    NONE of my greedy local gun shops had ONE brand-new shiny stainless-steel 1911 Colt .45 for less that $800! So, I bought me a purty $890 one at a Bill Goodman's Gun and Knife Show, last Saturday afternoon. My bad-companion gun buddy encouraged me to buy it! He was supposed to stop me!

    For those that have not heard (due to location or whatnot), Mission Essentials had a customer injured after bringing in a loaded weapon to sell, and when the weapon was to be cleared, the trigger was pulled and the customer was injured with his own weapon. There IS a reason for everything.

    Like some of you have said, concealed is concealed, and me as a LEO I am not going to question that. The customer in this case was not familiar with how to unload his own weapon. Be safe guys.

    In one of my local gun shops, a CCWer came in, was showing his gun at the counter, had a negligent discharge, and another customer was shot, the bullet striking him in the side. Fortunately, that customer survived, but suffered extensive injuries. Since then, people coming in must have their guns unloaded and cased when doing business in the store and before going in to the range. Of course, the employees are armed up, so no worries there.

    I would imagine some of the stores with similar policies have had similar incidents that caused that policy. There are a lot of people, regardless of whether they are a CCWer or not, that don't practice or are lazy about firearm safety.
