    Open Carry Colorado Springs Co

    Hi everyone,

    I finally bought my first pistol a few days ago, and have been researching open / conceal carry in colorado. It's legal in colorado springs to open carry, but I'm a little nervous about testing the water so to speak at businesses. Although I know for a fact it's legal for me to open carry in public, and in my car. My real question is, "Does anyone here have experience open carrying in businesses in colorado springs?" I'll name some business I frequent, and I'd like to know if anyone has open carried without/with issue at these places.

    Walmart
    Target
    5 Guys Burgers
    Barnes and Noble
    Chapel Hills Mall
    Ross Dress for less
    TJ Maxx
    King Supers
    Albertsons

    (I've been actively looking for posted signs but haven't seen a single one yet)

    Please list no carry establishments if you know of any.

    Today is the first day I've tried open carry, but haven't gone into any businesses carrying. I heard Walmart doesn't restrict gun rights as a corporate policy, not sure if that's true.

    I've OC'd in the springs. Most malls are anti-carry so I don't even bother going to them. Even if a place has stated they allow carry, like Wal-Mart, you may run into an employee or manager that wants to enforce their own rules. If that happens you should leave if asked to do so. You can take it up with management or corporate after the fact.

    The malls in the springs do not allow you to carry weapons. They are on the banned business list of rmgo.org (http://www.rmgo.org/reported-merchants). I've never had issues in Walmart, or any grocery store. Check the rest of the lists on rmgo.org, and read up on their banning business program (http://www.rmgo.org/firearms/conceal...ing-businesses). If you any other questions specific to Colorado, there is a sub-forum for our state that would be more appropriate, and get answers faster: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/fo...hp?89-Colorado
