I had to stop and do a double take when I went into Academy in franklin monday.. on the front door was a sign that said..If you have a HCP you are welcomed to carry your pistol either in the open or concealed when in the store... I couldnt beleive it!! I always liked Academy and will continue shopping there.. what a refreshing sign to read...

Some of their guys behind the gun counter carry, so this doesn't shock me at all. BTW, if the employees can carry, their patrons better be able to.

But I heard if you buy a gun, they will carry it to the door for you.

Two weeks ago Nebraska Furniture Mart, biggest appliance, furniture, and electronic store in Nebraska and Iowa removed their no weapons signs they had on their doors. They are also arming several of their guards due to a shoplifter who pulled a knife.

Dick's is aptly named. They are the KMart of sporting goods stores as far as outdoor stuff goes.

There is some Federal law on the books requiring them to carry the firearm out of the store. They do it in FL, CA, and TN, I think it is everywhere.

I bought my G23 at Range USA. I donned my new pistol and holster at the counter. He asked I not rack a round in the chamber until I was out in the parking lot \:D

They have not done it at several stores down here. I think its policy at most of the big box stores though.

I did not do a good job of expressing it, but that was the point of my post. Big box store policy is not the same thing as a Federal law.

It's refreshing to see a sign encouraging carry. Most places that allow it just don't post a sign saying you can't.

I bought one at Bass Pro at Opry Mills and they carried it to the cashier up front. I don't know if it matters that it was a handgun or not. That was in January
