    Thank you Mr King for allowing law abiding citz to defend our selves in your store!





    Well sort of.....for me anyway by my choice.

    Made my second migration to Columbus to see friends and family this weekend. I always go to Shooters and stock up on gun cleaning supplies and reloading supplies. This time, however, was my last. I entered the building and was looking at some firearms. I looked at an 1866 Winchester and then walked to the counter to take a look at a Sharps rifle. After looking at the rifle, the guy helping me asked if my firearm was unloaded. I said no. He said it was store policy and there was a sign on the door. I replied "I don't read signs" and started walking off to leave. He replied that he did not tell me to leave, just unload my firearm. I told him I do not unload it for anyone. Since I was not asked to leave I asked for the manager. Basically got the same reply. I informed the manager I wanted to buy some supplies if I could keep my firearm loaded. Needless to say I will find another supplier.

    I liked Shooters because they always have a verity of "Old West" firearms to dream over and they were always nice to me. Its ashame I can enter Walmart, Target and many other retail stores and restaurant as well as other gun stores with a loaded firearm but not Shooters. :screwy: :screwy: :screwy: :screwy:



    Anyhow, good-by Shooters of Columbus...several years of business gone elsewhere.

    I wish all gun stores would adopt the policy of if it does not come out of the holster it can stay loaded! No gun has ever jumped out of a holster and shot anyone!!!

    I live in Columbus and I just keep it covered. The guy at the counter stated that they know people still carry loaded into the store but if it is concealed they do not ask about it.

    Come on Jack, you know hidden guns don't go off by themselves. Another plus for concealed carry. :lol:


    Unless they're Glocks.

    I find this type of policy in gun stores to be ridiculous. :screwy:

    I still go in to look every now and then when I'm in Columbus, but I couldn't tell you the last time I bought anything from them.

    I've never been asked to unload my weapon at the one here in Augusta even though there is a sign on the front door.

    I have been going in there for several years although only a few times a year when I visit Columbus. I always purchased my cleaning and reloading supplies there. No more though! :screwy:
