    I don't really want to have to leave my gun in the car while at the aquarium... but if i must...

    Last time I was there (admittedly, this was like five years ago) they didn't have them, and I don't believe the aquarium was posted. Their website does not make any mention of a weapons policy, either.

    I went earlier this year and left my gun in the car, and was kicking myself in the *** when we got up to the door. They didn't have any detectors, and I didn't see any postings.

    I'm a cop, so I don't watch terribly closely, but I recall no postings, and no metal detectors last time I was there.

    here is a question for you, would a bullet even penetrate the glass? I bet its pretty stout holding back a million pounds of water... I dunno just a thought. Anyone know?

    it would almost have to be ball ammo from a big boy gun.

    do you think it would go through? I mean it would only take a small crack because of all the pressure and all...

    Well that stuff is very thick usually, i think at the ATL aquarium they have a display and it's almost 8inches thick? Could be more.

    While reading these responses, I couldn't help but recall the scene in one of the "Lethal Weapon" movies, when Mel Gibson shoots the bad guy's huge wall aquarium....with a Beretta.
