    Does anyone know all the details behind it and if it affects their GFZ policy?

    I can't imagine them taking the time to scrape off all of those No Guns signs, but that's just my take on it.

    Might could get some sort of write up from corporate and have it handy when banking with them, however.

    Much discussion regarding Wells Fargo on various threads -
    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/search....;q=Wells+Fargo

    Bottom line seems to be that Wells Fargo accepts the carry laws for the state in which the branch is located.

    Has this buy out of Wachovia's banking interests been actually finalized?

    Upon just looking at it it seems more of a partnership than aquisition? I dunno. I'm not very well educated in these sorts of issues.

    The aquisition closed at the end of the year but will take some time to become integrated. At this time I have not seen any information from the company to indicate a change in policy.

    I work with an affiliated company and we are now receiving some material from Wells Fargo. Maybe with some luck and common sense things will change re firearms.

    Regardless of company policy, as long as the stickers are on the door I would think that you would still be in violation and could be charged with trespassing. Just my .02 worth.

    There's always another bank that wants my money.

    The last place I'm going to go and NOT carry is my bank. I haven't seen any posted signs on any Wachovia buildings in my area (Little Neck, Lynnhaven, Mustang, Haygood).

    They don't ask and I don't tell.

    I use the Wachovia in Somerset only because it is convenient and I am not particularly fond of BB&T. I always carry into that branch, but do so concealed. The bottom part of my holster with about 3/4" of the slide of my G23 protrudes and both are visible when CC'ing. Yet no one has said anything to my in the several years I have been going there and I was just in there this morning with it partially exposed. I do hope that Wells Fargo does honor Virginia's laws and ways so that I can carry as I see fit when going there.

    1. When will Wachovia and Wells Fargo become one bank? There are two important dates that will be of interest to you.

    * Starting January 1, 2009 Wachovia Corporation is part of Wells Fargo & Co. Because Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. and Wachovia Bank, N.A. are still separate banks, there are no immediate changes to your accounts at this time. Our goal is to proceed carefully to do what is right for our customers, and it may take several months to begin our integration activities. * The second important date will be when Wachovia Bank and Wells Fargo Bank combine to become a single bank (known as Integration). In the months ahead, we will decide when Integration activities will occur. You will receive personal communication well in advance with specific information on how it may affect you.

    2. Will the name of the bank change to Wells Fargo?

    Yes, once Integration occurs, you will see the name and signage change to Wells Fargo.
