    I've never noticed the sign at the entrance to Sportsmans Warehouse. Yesterday I took the time to read it. I was pleasantly surprised. The policy is basically that all long-guns must be unloaded with the actions open prior to entering the store. All handguns must be unloaded (prior to entering) if you plan on removing them from your holster. Pretty good policy if you ask me.

    I read the wording of the sign multiple times. I can't believe a store (in todays climate) will post a policy on the doorsallowing the open-carry and concealed carry of loaded handguns in their store. GOOD JOB SPORTSMANS WAREHOUSE! Looks like I will continue being a customer there!:celebrate

    This is geared to returns and servicing. They don’t want you unloading your gun while in the store because this is the most likely time to cause an issue (aka: some retard failing to check/unload his gun properly resulting in an AD/ND) so by removing all ammo from the gun Before you enter the store any AD/ND that happens does so off their property.



    If you don’t plan on removing your gunfeel free to carry cocked and locked (in my opinion)

    The Sportsmans Warehouse in Provo has this same sign, however the Sportsmans in Midvale has a different sign. It says NO LOADED FIREARMS!

    Is that dramatically different than the gist of the other stores?

    Welcome colormered! Sportsmans warehouse has the same sign posted in all of their stores (In Utah) that state if you plan to unholseter you weapon, it must be unloaded. However, the Midvale has a bright orange sign on the other door that states that loaded weapons are disallowed. So I guess depending which door you enter through, you may or may not carry a loaded firearm. I plan to email them and ask them to remove this orange sign from the Midvale store. Their corporate sign already has their policy on it.

    Loaded is defined (76-10-502). For a semi-automatic, leeeegally... the gun is not deemed loaded if there is no round in the chamber... period.
