Thread: Concealed carry in gun shops

  1. #41
    There are a couple of gun shops in my area that have posted signs that state that they support concealed carry and you are welcome to do so but it must remain concealed. All other fire arms must be unloaded and in a case. I was in a store at one time and found a holster I liked but wanted to make sure it fit my hand gun that I was CCing in the store. I informed the sales person that it was for my concealed gun, he at that point asked me to go to my vehicle, unload it and then I was welcome to return with my gun and try out the holster. Sounded reasonable to me.

Also, CONSIDER HAVING ONE OR TWO METAL GARBAGE CANS FULL OF SAND in the store. Guns can be cleared with the muzzle pointed into the sand.

    There was an event at a gun show where a vendor had a gun on his table that had a round in the chamber. He accidentally shot his friend because the vendor had not cleared it AND the shooter was sweeping everyone in the whole building. This also applies to gun shops- clear all guns, even ones in the display case. It's also easy for someone to come into the store with a loaded magazine only, ask to see a gun, load it, and rob the store with their own gun. Scary.
    What guns stores do you go to? Everyone I have ever been to, the workers are OC or CC a firearm (locked and loaded). I have yet to see a gun store search a person, before letting them look at a firearm. So there is nothing stopping a person from loading a "live mag" into the firearm they are looking at. If I'm buying a add on for my firearm I remove it from my holster and clear it. I NEVER hand over my firearm to another person LOADED! Whats to stop them from buying the firearm and ammo, leaving the store and loading it, then coming back in and shooting everyone?

    Is it just me?

    Some of the responses to this thread are mind boggling to me. A loaded weapon is not a toy; it isnt something that you pull out to show off. If I am going to check out holsters I take the gun Im going shopping for unloaded, in a case and carry something different. My carry piece stays in the holster unless I am about to fire it.

    Sounds reasonable to me also but maybe they should provide some method of allowing you to unload it without going back to your car. If you find a gun store that does not have a bullet hole in the wall from a ND it probably means they haven't been in business very long.

    That works well when you have another firearm to carry in it's place.

    My gun shop is Spurlock's in Henderson, Nevada.

    The sign on the door clearly prohibits loaded guns on the premises...with the exception of "legal concealed carry weapons". (No mention of OC.)

    Tom's Guns in Boulder City, Nv has a similar sign on the front door.

    Center Mass in Henderson does not allow ANY concealed weapons inside the shop. That's why I don't shop there.

    But who doesn't have a second gun?

    This is exactly what I did last week when shopping for holsters for 2 of my pistols. Brought 'em in unloaded in a case. I was CCing as well. My preferred shop has a "No Loaded or Concealed Firearms Beyond This Point" sign on the front door but the owners told me a long time ago the sign doesn't apply to regulars they know (like me). The great majority of gun shops in my area have similar signs. A couple of places I know of, including my preferred shop, will gladly escort (while armed, of course) a customer to and from their car if the customer wishes.

    The shooting ranges that I prefer to go to both have signs prohibiting loaded weapons except at the shooting stations. I use a old Bosch tool bag to carry all my stuff. I always keep a loaded (but in this case not chambered) pistol in easy reach in the bag. As soon as I reach the front door I reach into the bag and pop the mag out. Upon leaving I just pop the mag back in and chamber a round - all inside the bag. The bag is slung from my shoulder so in essence it's a giant holster with the pistol right on top. I usually use my LCP for this purpose since it's small and easy to maneuver inside the bag.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just load the little munchkin and leave it in your pocket?
