I went to Bass Pro in Rancho last night and was never treated like I was ever.
First. I have been to Bass Pro many times carrying. At least 10. We even had a monthly meet up there which I attended.
So as I go through the front door they are checking weapons. I was just going to walk through like I had so many times before. But I stopped and waited.
I asked the man "Do I need to check my weapon" He looked at my holster and that I that I was carrying and said yes. So I waited.
It is my turn and he says Are you law enforcement? I said no. He said ok. Put your fire arm up here. I confirmed. Take it out and put it up here ( On the podium)
He said yes. I figured he needed my serial number to write down. So I took it out (It was unloaded) and he asked did I have any magazines? I said yes. Put the empty one up there and then the loaded mag I had.
HE TURNED IN TO RAINMAIN.. I swear... Oh oh oh oh now we have a problem.
Oh oh sir don't you know you can't carry bullets with a weapon. oh oh oh oh we have a problem. I think we need to get a manager.
So he goes over and gets some young girl looks about 19. Who proceeds to assure me although they respect my right to carry I can't have a loaded magazine with the gun. That's called a loaded weapon when they are together, I said "He told me to take out my gun and magazines and placed them on the podium. He said. Now that you have taken them out that is a whole new set of problems. We need a manager.
oh oh oh don't you know you can't carry like that. It is my understanding a magazine and gun together is illegal. I proceed to tell him he is wrong and state the law but he doesn't want to hear it. I have my girlfriend and two small kids with me.
I said look I am not trying to cause any problems. I have carried here many times no problem. I don't want to argue just want to buy some stuff... I will have my girlfriend put the magazine that was loaded in the car.... At this point I was pissed and tired and I wanted to get out......
Needless to say He locked up my gun with a gun a lock and placed it in a plastic bag while we shopped.....
Ok chime in,....................
