    I made this sign for businesses who support concealed carry at their place of business. What do you all think of it? and what improvments would be best?

    Thanks

    You spelled "whom" wrong.

    Otherwise, I think it's a good idea.

    I think you have a contradiction in the phrasing. "Though we allow open carry" is somewhat negated by "please only carry concealed." Might try "we prefer you carry concealed".

    Looks ok but I think I'd have to ignore the CC part

    Unless you are going to be giving these away for free you might want to call Glock and see if its alright to use their name and image.

    These are free for anyone to use on a place of business. Copy and paste away. But I will call Glock Monday morning just to be safe. Thanks.

    Why would you ignore the CC part? You're actually getting a business (or more) that fully supports CC in their place of business. Why would you want to piss on their cheerios and make them change their minds and post NO GUNS signs? CC carry is better than no carry.

    Perfect for those who can't decide whether to go IWB or OWB!!!. Or concealed or Open carry either, I suppose. Cover garment would look somewhat suspicious.

    Posting signs for or against a hot button topic only serves to invite/prompt everyone with a strong opinion, to address it. If I were a business owner, I would rather be neutral and quietly defer to State law rather than put myself and my business at odds with customers.

    I would go out of my way to patronize a business that had this sign on the door. Much like I go out of my way to avoid a business that bans firearms.

    Quick check of MI population vs CPL holders shows we are not a big demographic to go after. Depends greatly how many anti's are out there that would boycott the business for the same reason. Not a lot of upside for the business to risk losing anti business. Much better strategy to keep your head down and hope everyone patronizes you.
