    She didn't seem to be prejudiced against CCW holders. In fact, she seemed very glad I was a permit holder. Despite that fact I've been digging around online to find information to no avail. Considering it's a credit union for members of the armed forces, the safe thing to assume is that it's a federal building, and not carry until someone can prove otherwise.

    On the bright side, there is an armed security guard posted to each NFCU branch I've been to, so at least there's somebody armed there.

    I dont see anything saying the NFCU is a federal facility....merely a bank that limits its customer base.

    That's just a sign I linked to that's similar. My credit union is in Nevada -- Silver State Schools Credit Union.

    It's amazing how certain people often are of mistaken beliefs.

    My credit union too...I remove all, but leave my pistol on my hip when visiting my credit union. Too many meth and oxy junkies around. They are desperate and keep hitting local banks to support their habit. I don't need a toe tag when I go to visit my credit union, therefore I carry.

    Can anyone comment on whether I am missing something?

    Thanks,

    Respectfully, Neal, you are missing something. You are part of the PRO-gun crowd now. The PRO-gun crowd typically does not ask business managers why their premises are not posted. Usually the PRO-gun crowd are happy when a premises is not posted so we can carry our guns on their premises.

  8. You can carry in banks in Tennessee unless the bank posts a sign. The loophole to this down here though is that the sign has to be clearly put on all of the main entrances, have a picture of the Internationally recognized symbol of the handgun with the cross through it, and have some semi-complicated legal verbiage on it cited from Tennessee law.

    Technically, if the establishment just has a picture of the gun with the cross through it and only says "no guns allowed," you're still allowed to carry there. lol

    This may or may not be a correct assumption of "Federal" status as it relates to Concealed Carry, depending on the location of the facility. Many branches of the so-called "military" credit unions are located in commercial facilities off base and as such, would not fall under the Federal statute. Many others lease the facility from the Federal government on base, and therefore by virtue of that location actually being Federally-owned real estate, would be subject to prohibiition from Concealed Carry.

    I recall reading somewhere...that a military recruiting station in a strip shopping center is still considered a federal facility...

    I've also seen those signs about the hats,sunglasses,hoodies at TVA Credit Union! But no Gun sign either! So I wear mine in also.
    We've banked with the same branches for a long while so I truely dought they'd be worried about us! We see them alot on Friday & one will always pop up & ask if were gonna go kill some paper over the week end,,, They all know we carry so does our bank guard!
    Hes even been out with hubby looking at what we have when we are on our way to the range!
