    I was wondering wat Cabelas policy is concerning its customers carrying a firearm while in the store. Specifically, open carry and concealed carry with license.

    Tena:
    I know that if you have a concealed carry licence you are able to do this. You just need to check in at the front desk. Unfortunately, I do not know the policy on open carry. I would suggest contacting the retail store you plan on visiting directly for their policy on that.

    Tena:
    Actually, I just recheacked. We have made the decision to comply with state laws in regards to open carry. We do not ask customers to check concealed or open carry weapons where the state has laws governing this situation. Our signs refer to firearms that are being returned or sold to Cabela's.

    Tena: So you can do both if your state permits.


    Her first reply seemed odd, glad she rechecked.
    I will confirm the statement of the lady you talked to at Cabelas. We have a Cabelas here at Missouri too that we go to and cc and open carriers are both welcomed. We were also shopping one time when I saw a guy openly carrying. It did not bother me at all and so many others. I just looked at what brand he is carrying but the look I got from him ... is not pleasant at all ... so I decided to ignore him from then on. Anyway we bought a few items there and we were escorted to the door with our purchase. Good place to buy camping stuffs too.

    Wait a minute! What just happened to this conversation? How did it go from an OC experience story at Gander Mountain to a CC versus OC? Guys...it doesn't matter whether you OC or CC. To each his own. This is similar to a battle between which gun you carry because it is good, it is best, my dog is better than yours, my Nikon is better than your Canon, etc. It is not the manner of carrying, people...it is a means to accomplish a task -- stop a perp attack -- not the gun's brand or the manner it is carried.

    Ansel Adams was once invited to a posh dinner party. On entering the door, the hostess greeted him and said "Your photos are very beautiful. You must have a good camera." He entered the inner rooms and congregated with the other guests. Anyway after dinner, he approached the hostess and said to her "The meal was superb! You must have a good stove!!"

    I'm with you Mom. It seems that everytime someone mentions their particulat fashion of carry someone eles finds "the need to impart the truth upon the sinner". It is getting ridiculous. Every time I see this animosity between carry fashions demonstrated on these pages, I use the opportunity to jump on the offender with both feet. It doesn't matter if it's open or concealed, just CARRY! Everytime you CARRY you are exercising your 2A rights. Rights are like muscles. You need to use 'em every day to keep 'em strong!

    "You must have a good stove." That's a good one. Wonder what that'll get me at the next dinner my missus fixes? LOL

    So what, you guy's can defend the Second amendment but not the first?

    Why is my opinion not recognized as 'just my opinion'?

    I'm not saying that a crazy person can't just as well use a car to kill someone or wreak havoc, I'm just saying that if he wants a gun, and you are showing your's, you will be one of his targets.

    I don't have a problem with anyone carrying openly, I'm not gonna do it for the reasons I stated.

    What I meant by, 'what the truth is', is that when a crazy guy is looking for a gun, and you have your's in plain sight, you will become one of his primary targets.

    Just understand that I believe you can do what's right for you, but that my opinion is on equal ground as anyone else's, for the same reasons that you should be allowed to be armed.

    It turned left at Roger St W, with a slight curve at keykutter ave.

    You are more than welcome to your opinions, but why claim them as truths?

    If someone is looking for a gun, they will go out and buy one for $200 and not risk their lives. I believe that to be more truthful because the amount of illegal purchasing and straw buying that's happening, and that only one incident was allegedly aimed at an open carrier (barring DEA agents *SARCASM* for those that would get confused).

    The vast majority of places I go to and open carry I have exactly the same experience...they just don't have a welcome sign posted.

    We have open carry here in Michigan, however it's one of those unknown forgotten laws. I prefer to carry concealed to avoid stupidity.

  9. It was gander in Ohio close to Columbus,and some not all but some of you guys to chill out. Always trying to start an argument on this flipping form. I opened carried at GANDER MOUNTAIN not target or Kroger. Who in there right mind would rob or try to attack at a store that has more weapons than someone could own. I mean hell if someone was stupid enough gotta rob that place I would grab a gun off the rack and ammo I worked there and there was not one policy saying I could use there own guns to dffened my life or another. I guess no one can post one freaking thread on this website without someone causing a problem.

    No they don't. They follow state law, the only guns they "check" are ones that are not in a holster for repair.

    Why NOT Target or Kroger?
