    Not a policy, per say, or maybe it was.

    While I was in the store, the owner ridiculously low balled a widow who came in with her deceased husband's gun. I never returned.

    CMM, we’ll just have to agree that we disagree here. However, I was not “walking through their store with a gun in their (my) hand.” Nor did I have “complete lack of regard for all other safety protocol.”

    And last, but not least, the underwear thing was 100% real-he actually said that.

    Best regards,

    Sam

    Your continued posts would suggest that you're not.

    There was a shop for a few months that only let so many people in at the time, ran you through a metal detector, and was staffed by "operators." I knew one of the "operators" from the local pistol match. He was constantly one of the lowest scoring shooters at that match.

    The shop lasted about 7-8 months before they crashed and burned.
    Add to the mix that they were 20-25% over everyone else in the area. Good riddance, I shed no tears when I saw the going out of business sign.

    At my current gun store, walking in with a gun not in a case is how you make the people in the store, with guns, not be very friendly to you.

    I think you may be misunderstanding what I wrote. I was referring to our previous post in which you said:

    "I could have walked in, literally gun-in-hand, WITH my finger on-the-trigger, pointing/aiming at the dude...but had the pistol, ‘covered up’, in a pair of my underwear, (uh, and...TRUST me; no one wants to see that!) and the guy would have been perfectly happy."

    I was saying, unless you left something out, I didn't get that impression out of what you said. It seems to me that he was asking you not to open carry a firearm in his business, plain and simple. I don't think asking a patron not to do something, that could easily be interpreted as violating a law, is unreasonable. It not only protects them, but it protects you. A $10 case is a good insurance policy to mitigate the risk.

    "ARTICLE 1. Crime of Openly Carrying an Unloaded Handgun [26350- 26350.]
    ( Article 1 added by Stats. 2011, Ch. 725, Sec. 14. )
    26350.
    (a) (1) A person is guilty of openly carrying an unloaded handgun when that person carries upon his or her person an exposed and unloaded handgun outside a vehicle while in or on any of the following:

    (A) A public place or public street in an incorporated city or city and county.


    (B) A public street in a prohibited area of an unincorporated area of a county or city and county.

    (C) A public place in a prohibited area of a county or city and county.

    (2) A person is guilty of openly carrying an unloaded handgun when that person carries an exposed and unloaded handgun inside or on a vehicle, whether or not on his or her person, while in or on any of the following:

    (A) A public place or public street in an incorporated city or city and county.

    (B) A public street in a prohibited area of an unincorporated area of a county or city and county.

    (C) A public place in a prohibited area of a county or city and county.

    (b) (1) Except as specified in paragraph (2), a violation of this section is a misdemeanor.

    (2) A violation of subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment, if both of the following conditions exist:

    (A) The handgun and unexpended ammunition capable of being discharged from that handgun are in the immediate possession of that person.

    (B) The person is not in lawful possession of that handgun.

    (c) (1) Nothing in this section shall preclude prosecution under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 29800) or Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 29900) of Division 9, Section 8100 or 8103 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, or any other law with a penalty greater than is set forth in this section.

    (2) The provisions of this section are cumulative and shall not be construed as restricting the application of any other law. However, an act or omission punishable in different ways by different provisions of law shall not be punished under more than one provision.

    (d) Notwithstanding the fact that the term “an unloaded handgun” is used in this section, each handgun shall constitute a distinct and separate offense under this section. "

    (Added by Stats. 2011, Ch. 725, Sec. 14. (AB 144) Effective January 1, 2012.)

    A slide back, mag out gun - could have a round in the chamber. No one could see that. Moving into a firing position takes a second, hit the slide release.

    I'm sorry we are not going to continue arguing about a foolish action.
