Utah State Researcher,
If they concealed it I would do nothing, and treat him as a normal customer.
If he protested that when it gets difficult to answer.
If it was an open carry state, I think I would thank him, and treat him as a normal customer...maybe a 5% discount.
I know not what this "overkill" means.
Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.
Sounds like a great day, hope you have many more like it! My kids love Subway too I prefer Jersey Mike's.

For what it's worth, telling customers to take a hike just because they have an openly carried gun on their hip is NOT Subway corporate policy.
Subway is one of our favorite places to eat and I always open carry in ours. We ate there last night in fact and as we came in and got in line I heard the manager tell the other employees that they sure wouldn't get robbed that night while pointing at me. He then started making my sandwich with out even asking me what I wanted as he already knew. (we eat there quite frequently)
Yes jahwarrior, I live in the Altoona area. A medically discharged vet who was depressed rang the bell at the back door of one of our local Subways, when the 19 yr old (a senior at our high school) opened the door he got shot 3 times and died right there...the perp cont. into the stoor and shot another employee (a woman in her hip), then proceeded to rob the register. After fleeing he shot a recently retired man getting his mail, killing him too, just prior to being captured by the police. So I can understand why that Subway employee might have got a bit "hinky" seeing you open carry in the store. As a law abiding citizen in PA, where we do have the open carry right, he should have been aware of it being legal for you to do so. I am in favor of open carry even though I have carried concealed for 35 yrs now. I'm glad you had a good day with your daughter. May the good Lord bless you and yours.

I would still check into the state law you have there about open carry; if the local subway guy did not have anyhting posted and the state has a pre-emption law, I would sue their behinds off for infringing on your civil rights....

basically, if i'm in a place of business, or any other private property, in PA, and i'm asked to leave for any reason, i must comply, or be charged with defiant trespass. besides, i don't have the time or energy to sue a second rate hoagie shop because one guy got scared. i'd rather go to Quizno's, anyway.
You should of just gone over to Coney Island
I'm sure they would have not said anything to you about the sidearm.
