I am a member of a gun-rights community website called Open Carry .Org
Yesterday (Monday), someone posted about a dangerous incident which happened in your store Sunday, at the gun counter.
From the description of the incident, several employees appear to think it's a wonderful game to grab someone's pistol out of its holster. More astonishing is that the employee who is the target of this "fun" goes along with it! It's dumb luck that nobody has caused a negligent discharge yet.
I applaud Sportsman's Warehouse for not infringing the rights of employees or customers, and encourage you to maintain that policy.
However, I think that people who work in the gun department should AT A MINIMUM know & follow the basic rules of gun safety & it's clear that these employees do not.
An account of the incident can be found in the thread here:

It seems that the manager who was called has some clue as to how dangerous this "game" is. I disagree with him telling the armed employee to disarm, because he hadn't done anything wrong. (Though he didn't report the dangerous activities, & appears to not understand the consequences of this "fun".)
Please please tell me that the people stealing others' pistols have been assigned to other departments... Or at least that they've had to take a basic firearm safety course so they get safety through their thick skulls.
