It's legal here in CO.

Maybe I do, and maybe I don't.

I have before. But since I rarely go in bank and when I do it's after work and I can't carry at work I don't often.

Until recently, the only legal way to carry into a bank in NC was to open carry. I did it all the time, and never had a problem. Not even when I walked into a bank that had an ultra-secure (lol) buzz-in only double-locked door entrance/exit with a built-in metal detector. One of the tellers just buzzed me in with no problem. Talked to the branch manager for about 10 minutes, then walked out.

I'm still not sure if nobody noticed, or nobody cared.

Updates to carry laws made it legal to CC inside NC banks, so that's what I do.

So, would you (do you) carry when visiting your bank?

On the one hand I think it's clearly a place where a BG with gun may show up. On the other hand, I wouldn't want anyone to see me carrying and panic, leading to who knows what.
I carry into my bank everytime I go in. This is especially true if conducting cash transactions. I use my CHL as my second ID to my drivers license.
At one time, I had an account at a financial institution that posted a proper "no handguns" sign. As I was preparing to go on vacation and was making a cash withdrawl of $4000, I was not about to go into the place unarmed. They had NO armed guard to escort me to my truck, either. I was left with only one option. Texas law allows the carry of long guns with license not required. The financial place didn't allow handguns, but said NOTHING about long guns. I walked in with my AR slung over my shoulder. Man, did I ever attract attention!

I have been carrying into banks (in Florida, where as already stated, it is legal) for years. Conceal properly and there should be no problem.

I even went to the bank to have my CCL renewal notarized the last time around. The guy who helped me said he had been doing a lot of them recently, and seemed quite comfortable with it. He didn't ask if I was carrying at the moment, but I got the impression that he assumed I was, and he would have been correct.

Banks are private property and may impose their own rules. The Federal Government may own shares of a bank but they DO NOT function as Federal Property.

I just don't like to carry inside a bank so as mentioned before, I use the Drive By, oops, strike that... I meant the Drive Thru.

That's a big no-no here in PA. No banks, courthouses, schools
or anywhere that's sells/serves alcohol. If it was legal? I don't know. Maybe. Heck of a place to have someone spot it and freak out.

Sorry but you can OC/CC in banks, non secured parts of courthouses, any place that sells or serves alcohol in Pa. I OC at my bank twice a week. The Courthouse must have lockers for you to secure your weapons at the metal detectors or security point. You can drink while OC/CC in any establishment that serves.

If that's true, they've changed the laws in the 20 years since my first CCW permit in PA. That was the first (and only) time I was ever told what the carry laws were. From then on it was just going through the renewal process. I have looked for a listing of the specific restrictions a few times since then, but never really found anything official. Do you have a link to anything?

So, would you (do you) carry when visiting your bank?

Are you seriously asking?

This is an issue with many people, so I'd say yes! Many members here are new to carrying, and have limited resources for decent info.

The only places I can find, other than the federal no-go places, for PA are:

Schools K-12
Secure portions of a court house
Casinos

PA, WA, AL, CA and DE are some of the absolutely best states with regards to where you can carry as they have the fewest restrictions. They're also of the first generation may/shall issue states before the sky is falling anti gun types got hold of the requirements.

Yes, and no.

If you are at a bank where you are conducting business according to their code of conduct, and there are no stated emergencies you cannot simply be asked to leave, because it's your day to leave.

You are their customer. Say for example you have a safe deposit box there, or are in the process of depositing or withdrawing a large sum of money...you think they can just arbitrarily ask you to leave?

Don't know a thing about PA.

But in my state, I follow the laws closely. I call up the state website online at least once a year and look at all the applicable laws for changes. I also use handgun law US as a backup. I don't trust anything but the state website, and a direct reading of the applicable state laws

Same for the other states I travel in.

Not to be smart, but you carry a Pa. LTCF. Pick up a copy of the Pa. Uniform firearm act at your local state Rep. or Senators office. If you would like to ask questions Pa. specific, see here.

pa2a.org or pafoa.org

Yeah, I am familiar with both of the sites you've listed. Unless I missed something, neither one specifically spells out where you can't carry concealed in PA with a LTCF. I would love to see an official PA listing of the restrictions. Twenty years ago when I got my first license to carry, the sheriff of my county at that time gave me the following restrictions:

No schools
No banks, credit unions or other financial institutions
No courthouses
Nowhere that sells or serves alcohol

If any of those have changed, I would love to see it in writing.
