Thread: open carried first time at gander mnt

  1. open carried first time at gander mnt

    I never open carry just conseal carry with my glock 23 with either a uncle mikes iwb or blackhawk belt holster. Walked up too the doors and read the sign that said conceal carry and open carry customers welcomed. So I was like " I'm about to open carry for the hell of it. " anyways walked in and started my shopping. Grabbed a cart by the front desk and they greeted me as usual. Went and picked out a couple of shirts, and checked out some new guns in the show cases. A few people looked at my gun but it didn't bother me. Went and got a box of hornady hollow point self defence rounds and some target ammo. All the employees were still very friendly and had a pleasant expierence. As I walked out and concealed my firearm and went out too my truck. Wish most places if not all were the same way.

    Glad to hear there were no complaints. Here in VA open carry is a very common thing but, lately ive noticed very few who open carry. I prefer concealed just avoid the situation of someone confronting me about it, however i see absolutely nothing wrong with it

    Right on man. I've been open carry for a couple months now, haven't had a problem. Keep on keeping on.

    open carry

    I don't open carry. I don't like attention. I also don't want to be the first threat a gunman sees. That's just me though.

    Good to hear you did it... The first few times are quite nerve-racking (is that actually a word? lol) but it gets so you dont even pay much attention about it, BTW, why didnt you post this in the "Open Carry" forum?

    If it said conceal carry and open carry customers welcomed on the door then I wouldnt expect many issues to arise. I'll look at your gun too. Just to see what it is, might even ask about it. (looking for another...)

    We only have Cabelas here, and they take your gun at the door. I'll shop at the smaller local places first.

    What do you mean they take your guns at the door. They actually disarm you? Frack that noise!

    I do open carry. I haven't received that much attention compared to when I was concealed carrying. I don't want to be a victim in the first place, and value the deterrent aspect of open carry very much.

    I guess I can't call troll since this was posted in cc forum...maybe Android needs an update so it says what forum it's in at the bottom along with "published at"

    I have never seen anyone get searched but EVERY firearm I have ever seen go thru the front door was met by an employee and the employee carries the gun back to the gun counter. Same with a new purchase, an employee carries it to the front door and escorts you out.

    I dont recall the exact wording on the sign but will take a pic next time Im there.


    EDIT: What Im reading on the web is that the policy is for sales and returns and that Cabelas follows local state law.

    I'm not decided on open carry but generally feel surprise is the better option. If TX had open carry I would do so at least part of the time, and I would carry a nice Colt 1911 Govt model in stainless.

    And some store clerk taking my gun? Not a chance in heck of that.
