I've never been challenged by anyone carrying off duty (or on duty, for that matter), so I can't say how it would play out. I just know that I ignore any and all signs or other "restrictions," barring those facilities mentioned.
Part of it is the very situation that happened here - my weapon is always safest attached to my body, not in a car or wherever. There have been MANY reports of police cars being broken into - an agent I know had their weapon, radio, and body armor stolen from their car, and I have even heard of fully stocked SWAT deployment vehicles being broken into.
