OC in the Oly/Lacey area with no issue.
Thread: OC in McDonalds/Burger King
I have gone to the Friend/Foe site to see about OC at the fast food joints and find no info.
Has anyone had any experience OC at a McDs or Burger King in the Tacoma/Federal Way area?
I go to one about 3X a month but due being at lunch from work can not carry. But on occasion will go eat there on my own time.
I found a statment (dated 9/20/13) by McDonalds corporate spokes person Lisa McComb :
Here's a statement from McDonald's spokeswoman Lisa McComb:
“We recognize that there is a lot of emotion and passion surrounding the issue of firearms and open carry weapons laws.
While we respect the differing views of all our customers, McDonald’s company-owned restaurants follow local, state and federal laws as it relates to open carry weapons in our restaurants.
For franchisee-owned restaurants, operational decisions regarding open carry weapon laws are made by the independent franchisee.
That said, as with all aspects of operating a McDonald’s restaurant, we expect our franchisees and their crew to follow local, state and federal laws.”

Never had any problems open carrying in McDonald's or Burger King anywhere. In fact, the only problem I ever had in any fast food restaurant was one time in line at Jack-in-the-Box a concealed carry only nut couldn't resist the urge to tell me that he carried his concealed. I replied, "You are not doing it very well." He asked, "What do you mean?" I replied, "I know you have a gun." He shut up after that.
Don't sweat the small stuff, and it's all small stuff. Just put your weapon on your belt each morning, and go about your business as usual. If you are not wanted at an establishment, they will ask you to leave (never happened to me, but YMMV). If that should happen, leave and never go back. Don't waste your time looking up friend or foe. Just live your life as usual. Carrying a gun is a natural, normal everyday activity. Relax.
I've OCd at just about every national fast food chain there is. No problems. Just be polite, and don't drag extra attention to your gun, and carry on like you're doing nothing wrong. The best way to not get negative attention is to look like you belong and you're doing nothing wrong, that will avoid 99% of problems anywhere

I've not had any problems at either of the two Mc'Ds or BK's that I go to when visiting my brother nor at the local diner type place we hit twice a week.
My dress is normal slacks and a golf type shirt. And the G30, of course.
My brother won't open carry, but that's his personal decision.
