I agree trying out holsters in a store with a loaded firearm isn't very bright.
But like Ron White said " you cain't fix stoopid".
Does that mean the criminals have to check, or unload their too, if so..then thats ok....

It is sickening that the good guys are treated like the bad guys.

Bass Pro has a similar policy.

They do not mind you bringing your gun in but if done by store policy they will have a store employee check the weapon, clear the weapon, and follow you around with the weapon to try different accessories. Even when purchasing new a store employee will escort you to the door where you then take possession of your new gun.

All the big stores do it. The sporting goods Asst. Mgr. At Wally walked me out to the SUV after the purchase( the 702)...

And I simply disregard both them if I MUST go in to their buildings. I simply don't enter any place where these prejudicial signs are posted unless it is absolutely necessary.

I don’t see that at the Broken Arrow, OK store. Also, I buy about 15 guns/year there and yes, they used to escort me out; actually I used to have to pay for them at the Customer Service desk but no longer have to. Now I just pay for them upstairs at the gun counter and walk out.

Both Cabelas and Sportsmans Warehouse have a sign at the door that says if you wish to remove your gun from the hoslter you must go to the customer service desk and have the weapon cleared first. Both stores in my city allow concealed carry. And it says so their sign.

My bad – I didn’t read this very well. I somehow totally missed this “to try different accessories”. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I am sure this BPS would also.

My big 5, the mgr. On duty carries a 1911 on right hip. They only sell Ammo for Handguns, but they have probably 60-75 long guns on the rack, with more in the back room...even the lady sales staff shoots. 2 of them will hold the Ammo for you if you ask for your name on the list. One time when some didn't show to pick up their 250 rd. Box of Remington UMC 9MM, I got a call as next on the list. Glad I had $65 !
