    Has anyone here ever been asked to leave a business open to the public by the owner/manager due to OC/CC a weapon?

    The law in my state specifically states OC/CC is permitted in "public buildings". Of course if the owner of the private property the business is located on asks you to leave you would have to comply.

    The law in my state also stipulates that you may not carry in public buildings if "no weapons" signs are posted at the doorway entrance.

    Would anyone here ever walk into Home Depot (or similar type business) with your pistol OC on your hip holster?

    Yes, a TGI Friday's restaurant in Richmond, VA over 10 years ago. Concealed carry isn't legal in a restaurant in VA if it has a license to serve alcohol. Go figure, open carry was legal.

    Fortunately next week that law changes. :D

    Not me. I rarely CC. Maybe occasionally in the winter. Otherwise OC all the time.

    I've had conversations relating to my carry with the assistant manager of 2 different establishments, the manager/owner of a tavern/restuarant, and a conversation with a local city cop. None of them resulted in my changing the way I carried, neither was I asked to leave.

    In fact, the talk I had with the tavern owner eventually led to more conversations, and she ultimately obtained her own License To Carry Forearms, purchased 2 9mm pistols, joined a range, and is taking classes on safety, marksmanship, self-defense, and retention.

    All of my conversations with "just folks" were positive, and I have handed out over 100 of our PA flyers.

    ;)

    Yes, and oddly enough, every business that asked me to leave is out of business. Seriously.
    Though I did love when the convienance store clerk asked me as my friend and I were leaving, as requested, "Are those .25s?"
    My friend was carrying a Colt 1911, and I was carrying a Springfield 1911A1.

    Can't OC here, so that's never come up. If someone asks you to leave for CCing, you're doing it wrong.

    Every day. Not a big deal.

    Nope. Funny though, I have been asked to conceal it. Apparently when a person knows you have a gun, but just can't see it, it's less scary... :banghead:
    IF anyone ever does say anything to me, or even notices my gun, the reactions run about 90% in the range from educational to positive. Only about 10% run from the range of education to negative.

    If OC were legal in my state, or if I was visiting a state where OC was legal, absolutely. Why wouldn't/shouldn't I?

    It is not illegal to CC in a restaurant. A lot of restaurants have a policy that does not allow firearms.

    The most they can do is ask you to leave. If you CC correctly, they won't even know you have it.

    While OC in a Fry's grocery store the security guard asked that I take it out to my car. I asked for the manager to turn my dicount card, because I would never shop in that chain again. The manager told the guard [off duty TPD] there was no such policy and apologized to me. Can't wait till 7/29 when constitutional carry becomes law.

    I was asked to be sure that my weapon was concealed and also my prisoner's handcuffs concealed to ensure that it didn't make any airline passengers nervous. Poor babies. This was post 9/11.

    It was really a comedy of errors. The BG had been arrested literally in his underwear and had no ID whatsoever on him. When he got done with his time in AZ we extradited him back to TX. They were kind enough to give the guy a jail issue jumpsuit and some sandals to wear. So we get up to the ticket booth and start through the dog and pony show and he doesn't have any ID to show. Can't board without ID. I ask them to call for the TSA supervisor. She confirms that he has to have a picture ID. I said, "You mean to tell me you're willing to let me aboard, armed, but not my prisoner in handcuffs. Are you saying that you think I'm smuggling a terrorist aboard?" Ended up having to get the jail to fax a book-in sheet with picture to TSA so he could board. Almost missed the last flight out for the day.

    It is illegal in some states such as NM regarding restuarants that serve alcohol. They don't even have to be posted.

    I wish we at least had a decent 60/40 law instead of the stupid beer and wine only one that goes into effect July 1st.

    I'm sorry but I had to. It made me laugh.

    Never been asked to leave. Nobody ever knows that I am carrying unless they are pretty sharp.

    Saw a fella yesterday in Lowe's carrying on his belt with a tea shirt on. The store employees certainly noticed. They watched him carefully. It is not a common thing here regardless of whether or not it is legal.

    Nope, but then I'm very careful at carrying a concealed handgun.
