    we have a few malls that are OC friendly,but alot that are anti OC,or even CC(though if its CC then they wouldnt know unless you used it)...and several which have not been tested.

    actually,has anybody tested the lansing mall?

    they have a Dicks,Starbucks and Barnes & Noble right next to each other,and the starbucks is inside barnes & Noble,all of those places are OC friendly.

    Typically, we add the establishment when we receive, 1) Corporate Policy, 2) Verbal Agreement, and/or 3) They accept a sticker and/or handouts (OC Brochures).

    I go to the Dick's Sporting Goods on M59 in Utica, and the one in Chesterfield. They have always been supportive of OC every time I've gone in there.

    I stopped going to Dick's after the last time they mistreated me there.

    After talking to corporate, I was left with the impression that they didn't seem to value me as a customer. Haven't been back since.

    Keep in mind, if someone knowingly CC's in a place where it is posted "no firearms", they are officially trespassing. Meaning if you were to use your firearm, you lose the benefit of the Castle Doctrines protections since you are not legally allowed to be there while carrying. Very dangerous legal territory(criminally and civilly).

    I've OC'd at the Dick's in Westland on a couple occasions. No issues. I think they've been on board for awhile.

    I OC at the Dicks in Lansing all the time, only had one issue.
    A few weeks ago I went in for some new boxing gloves and wandered around a bit looking at other things. A manager approached me and started asking questions very aggressively, "Are you a cop? Do you have a permit? What if I told you carrying like that isnt allowed here?" I attempted to explain the law quickly and explain that if OC wasnt welcome I would leave, however Dicks corporate customer service had previously stated that they follow the laws of the state and any legal forms of carry were welcome. He didnt seem to happy with that comment and stated he was going to verify that with his district loss prevention manager and be back. I wandered around waiting for another 20 min, made my transaction for product and left. Never saw him again. On the way back to work I contacted their corporate customer service again and they confirmed I was correct and stated they would contact the manager at the store and inform him of the policy.

    Yesterday I was very obviously OCing there, (white dress shirt and black holster) and nothing was said.
