    I've carried in a Richmond GS before and never had an issue.

    Ok I actually called their customer service line. The gentleman told me that individual locations may sometimes have a different set of rules, depending on who owns the shopping center. He told me to call their front dest tomorrow at 817-424-2000 to get further information.

    I usually go into the Suffolk store, which at last check was not posted. And I call BS on that "shopping center policy" nonsense. I have never seen a shopping center with every store posted.

    Never had any issue with GameStops in Lynchburg, the few times I've been in one.

    Edited to remove my previous statement. I missed that the original poster indicated his local store was posted.

    The Game Stop In C"Ville called the PD on a CC'er when one of the employees spotted the CC'ers holster sticking out from under his shirt..

    I've OCed a few times in there with my son, no issues.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    So I just got off the phone with Game Stop corporate and they have no official policy, leaving the option of banning guns to the store manager. On another note, this is a corporate store, not a franchise. Also, there is a game stop two blocks from this one, and I don't believe it is posted.

    I just got off the phone with the Assistant Manager of that location (which is actually 700 N Military Hwy, STE 2006) and he said that the shopping center is owned by Military Circle Mall, and their security requested that the sign be put up. He personally disagrees with the policy, but it is there none the less.

    Is the entrance from the outside to the store? If so and my store the mall security would be told where to attach their sign.

    GameStop Policy?

    The store itself isn't even in the mall or attached to it. But the mall owns the shopping center.

    I've carried at the one near AMC and Chuck E Cheese on Big Bethel, and the one next to Yorktown Walmart, no problems with either

    That security "request" could cost them business..

    3. Move thumb safety down taking gun off safety. Caution: The gun is now ready to fire. Be prepared for noise and recoil when pistol fires.

    The manager said he doesn't agree with it. IANAL but As long as game stop pays the rent they don't need to put the sign up just because some security dweeb asked.

    I hope that doesn't affect your aim.

    I've open carried at the Gamestop on Lynnhaven and the GS on indian river rd. Not a word spoken about my carry at either location. I bet the nerds behind the counter were trying their hardest to recall what game and what level they had seen my pistol in before.
    It's better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it...

    Simple answer should have been: "NO"

    A request from security is meaningless! If it is not in the lease, ignore it and move on. My local Gamestop would go out of business if I stopped visiting (well, not quite). I have great firearms discussions with the guys and gals there. OC has only ever been an opportunity for discussion there.
