I'm sure a few of you remember about 8 months ago when I posted an encounter where myself and TheSzerdi were kicked out of the Double Action of Madison Heights gun store for open carrying. We both vowed we'd never return to the store, because they 'claimed' that their policy stated that OC wasn't allowed there, however there was nothing in the policy about open carry at all.
We decided today to head to the range together once again, this time going to Target Sports in Royal Oak. TheSzerdi was unable to conceal his firearm due to his illegal confiscation of his CPL by the DPD, so he OC'd.
We were informed upon arrival that OC is not welcome there, and that next time, we are to conceal our firearms or be asked to leave. A DPD Cop was also there, and began to inform us that 'just yesterday' he saw someone get hit in the face who was OCing, and saw his gun get stolen (what a load of @#$%). He then began to argue with us that even though it is not written in the law that you must conceal with a CPL, that in the APPLICATION to get your CPL, that it states that your firearm must be concealed. We attempted to educate this officer, and even mentioned that CPL applications vary from county to county, but to no avail.Â*
Now this is what gets me.
In both Double Action AND Target Sports, ALL OF THEIR EMPLOYEES OPEN CARRY; however, patrons are not allowed to.
I honestly don't have a gun store anymore that I can go to that is only a hop, skip and a jump away, if I don't go to one of these stores, however, I refuse to give my business to such ignorant idiots. I'm at a loss what to do here guys...
