It is indeed a company policy to not allow guns in their restaraunts. It's for the "comfort and safety" of all their patrons.

Just before we got our OC here in Oklahoma I asked the clerk at the Stop&Rob if they were going to put up a sign, and he said no and said he didn't care if I OC'd in. Last Friday I went there to get some energy drinks and when he saw I was packing he ripped into me, he said the next time I came in my gun better damn well be left in my pickup as they didn't want guns in the store, also there are no signs. I am going to find out who the owner is and tell them they lost a customer of 3 years

Did you end up leaving the drinks on the counter and walking out?

Ok. Good to know. I am sure they will all be comfortable and safe in their gun free zone munching on their bird parts.

LOL, there's a big assumption I'd never make if I were ripping into a customer.

I've eaten lots of restaurants over the years and none of them knew I was carrying. What were doing differently?

I carried for years before moving to my current commie state. I've never been called out for carry. Concealed means just that - keep it concealed.

What about the fear of being left looking like Beetle after Sarge was done with him? Have you not seen The Mayor?

Appearantly he was OC, which I assumed was illegal in GA. I assumed wrong.

Just for giggles, I called the local Bdubs and asked their policy on guns being carried in but concealed. The female said "they don't have a sign saying no guns and they have cops in carrying guns all the time."

Now, I didn't ask to speak to a manager for verification, but she certainly didn't say NOOOOO, you can't have a gun in here!!! I don't eat there, have much better places for wings.....was just curious.

The state I live in has open carry w/o a license and cc with a license. Sometime I wear my S&W 686 with a baggy Shirt, but its a pretty big gun, its fairly easy to tell that 'i have a gun on. As long as Im in an area I can carry it does not matter if its concealed, partially concealed, imprinting or open. The area I live in is rural so most people/businesses dont care either way.

And Weck???

So it IS originally from Buffalo? Do they put horseraddish on the wings, too?

It's been years. But going back for a sammich seems like a dumb idea. LOL

Handgun or long gun?

Posting a story like this without immediately noting where you're from is kinda pointless...

but anyway.

Trust me on this, next time the store calls for someone carrying a gun, they're going whether that cop says they will or not. It is good at least that you didn't catch a lot of grief from him over the matter.

Wait till you're not so angry, and write their corporate office and explain the situation to them. If you can include the Officer's name, and don't bring up you will not be going back because you can't carry (they've already gotten a gazillion of those letters). Complain about how the manager talked to you and treated what was going to be a paying customer (for all they know, you were going to comply and take your firearm to your vehicle)

If the manager changes, the policy may change.

Not angry at all.. And it was a handgun not a long gun. It's there lose of business there are plenty of places that are willing to take my money and not ask me to leave due to my choice to protect myself and my loved ones.

Open carry ..binging drama to you since 2002..

It was cool enough in GA yesterday for OC to not be needed, and given the recent BWW stories on here I must say way to go ...

I guess the manager was baited but not the cop.
