On the way home from the range yesterday evening, I realized that my refrigerator was dangerously low on libations, so I made a stop into a convenient liquor store on Centennial Blvd. in the Springs. I scanned the doors as I entered and failed to see any signs stating that the store preferred their customers disarmed so I continued in, quickly made my selections and proceeded to the register to pay. When the clerk asked for ID (thank goodness I still look young enough to get carded on occasion ) I held open my wallet and displayed my driverís license. The clerk must have noticed the carry permit tucked in behind the license because he promptly informed me that I am always welcome to carry my weapon in his store and he appreciates armed honest citizens who give him business. I thanked him kindly for respecting the rights of law abiding citizens and promised that I would spread the word, so here it is. If youíre in the neighborhood, check out Canyon Crest. They have a great selection and it is very refreshing to hear of a small local business who not only permits but encourages carry on their premises.
