    Thumbs down Gander Mountain In Grandville Mi. Claims largest gun store in the state!!

    Was exited to hear of this new and improved Gander Mtn. in Grandville until me and my father went there. Both of us open carrying our sidearms we were stopped just past the entrance by a very rude employee who quite loudly yelled at us for bringing handGUNs into what is now claiming to be the largest GUN store in Mi. Open carry is legal in Michigan and we were scolded like we were two gun toting psycho's. My father is a retired sheriffs deputy and i am a legal cpl holder also. I explained to the lady that not allowing open carry into the states largest GUN store seemed a bit contradictory but she insisted we return our guns to our vehicles or carry them concealed. I reminded her that every other gun store in this area including our new Cabela's is proud to promote open carry, as it should be. She advised that maybe we should shop there then, so we did. Not going to be shopping at Gander Mtn. anymore.

    Wow. There's a sign at the front of the store that says to check in firearms but specifies that that doesn't apply to CPL holders, so I assumed they'd be pretty carry-friendly.

    I was there a couple days before their "grand opening" and was pretty disappointed. I didn't spend a lot of time, but it looks like they've completely gotten rid of the women's section (clothes & stuff). I asked a worker about ammo, and he said they had it but it wasn't going to be put out until the official opening - 25% on Friday and 75% on Saturday. :/ I live 45 min away, so wasn't planning to be back in town over the weekend. I don't know what kind of marketing/study/planning they did before the renovations, but I liked it better before.

    Sounds like they have a new business plan, piss of your customer base so they shop elsewhere.
    ...SCOTUS says we're right...You don't like it. I'm sorry you don't like it. I guess that's a problem for you. Some people don't like gays. Some don't like alcohol. Some don't like meat. ~michaelzwilliamson

    Unless it's on sale, there are NO deals at Gander anyway.
    Don't know what's up with OC there. I've gone to OC seminars
    at Gander Mountain in Taylor & Novi. ??????

    I think Jays only has you check your weapon if you plan to have work done on it there. I haven't checked mine ever there.

    I agree, the store here in Florida says the same thing about being the largest gun store. We don't have open carry so that's not a concern but we do have concealed and we do regularly. Their prices are at least one to tow hundred dollars above others and their long gun prices are off the charts. Good place to browse but I go to an independent dealer to buy. Actually most of the other stuff in there is overpriced.

    That's stupid. You have a bad guy come in...stolen. You have a dishonest employee, stolen. You have an anti working the counter, "missing" gun.

    That's only if you carry it in in a case. For repair, trade, etc. Cabela's does the same thing.
