    I shop at Costco in Lancaster, CA. There are no signs saying NO GUNS. With the above letter I'd say they are just being careful. Why fight it when they don't enforce it.

    I've seen cases where Costco chooses to "enforce it" by asking patrons who OC to "cover up or leave". I'd much prefer to deal with a company like Sam's Club who allows patrons to choose how they wish to exercise their 2A rights as long as they're in compliance with local laws.

  4. Costco Reno NV Plumb Lane posted 'no firearms' sign

    The Costco warehouse on Plumb Lane, Reno, NV, recently posted a 'no firearms' sign. I emailed their corporate hq, for an explanation. It was pretty much cookie-cutter from letters and emails posted here (and elsewhere) from prior years. Mostly "feel good" stuff, like keeping our customers happy and safe.

    Costco only allows members ($50.00) to enter; and relies on the honesty of their members to comply with this policy.

    According to their email reply to me, violation of this policy is subject to a stern reminder of the policy, OR cancellation of Costco membership. Wow. That ought to keep violent criminals and the insane from hauling firearms inside.

    Like many of my friends, I shall continue to carry concealed.

    Why not go a step further and patronize an establishment like Sam's Club where your firearms are welcomed?

  6. I'll have to look out more carefully. I've never seen a "no guns" sign at my local Costco locations. Oregon is a "businesses must notify - but there is no standard for notification" to bar guns. So to me, no sign means concealed carry is okay. If there is no sign, and the guy at the door doesn't tell me "no" (and since I'm CCing, he would have no way to know,) then there's no reason to ask and PROMPT them to put up a sign.

    I've never seen a no guns sign at any store in Kalifornia. As far as I know there is no law authorizing no gun signs in Kalifornia. So if that is true the most any sign can mean in Kalifornia is you have to leave if they ask you or you are trespassing.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

  8. Costco further explains its policy

    Costco replied to my further queries.

    As explained, Costco policy makes a distinction between OC and CC. Their policy is an attempt to prevent OC, which at some Costco sites has caused customers to raise the firearms issue. Some customers felt intimidated or nervous, and complained to Costco management.

    Costco recognizes that customers (legally) carrying concealed do not get the same response from other customers.

    This seems to me to be e reasonable policy.

    There's no posting at the entrance of the Medford, OR Costco against firearms as required by Oregon law if they don't want people to carry in their store. None at either Ace Hardware either.

    Do they pat you down or make you walk through a metal detector when you go in, if not how would they possibly know if you are concealing a weapon?
