Shootstraight is very friendly, and doesn't mind you carrying as long as your slide is back and the mag is out. Bolts open for rifles.

Slide back mag out doesn't do much good. You might as well have a brick in your holster. Most of our shops if you are taking it in as a trade in then it needs to be cleared. If you are carrying just dont mess with it unless there is a reason.

Every gun shop I have been to in Texas, Oklahoma, or Florida the employees have always open carried and mostly it has been very "classy". Nothing Rambo like.

The one strange thing I have witnessed was a salesperson trying to sale my dad on a glock, and after I expressed that I had no love for that type of gun, he removed his from his hip and cleared it to show me everything he had done to it. I just thought "why buy a gun if you are going to spend just as much to 'fix' it up"

I know, but it's better than having it in a box. I keep a loaded mag in my back pocket at all times at the range.

Perhaps not as he intended, but that's just plain funny.

Did I ever mention I really have little use for 'practical' jokes?

I don't get the thing with carrying a gun to the range or shop, then you're restricted as to how you carry it, what you can do with it, don't touch it, etc. What's the point? Both of those settings should be the most gun-friendly places we could possibly go. Now, if they want to check you before they know you, and make sure you're not an idiot, or put restrictions on you because you are, fine. But putting a blanket restriction on it is like saying, "Go ahead and bring your race car to the track, but don't go ON the track with it, you might hit another car."

But wait a minute, if a bad guy came into the store, he would shoot all the OC first, it's true, I read it on the internet

My fave gun store, the owner CC, and my fav sales guy OC. Never paid attention to what they were carrying.

Anybody else have a LGS guy that is a little over the top with the gear or gun selections?
While no criminal is probably stupid enough to rob a gun store, who knows?

There could always be a first.

Most gun store thefts are drive-up smash-in the door late night burglaries.

Good idea. Never thought of that.

Probably will start doing that myself as well now.

a couple years ago a guy grabbed a shotgun off the used gun rack in one of our LGS, he ran out the door & tried to rob the tire shop across the street. he must've figured that would be easier than trying to rob the gun store with their own EMPTY shotgun
