    On both entrances, they now have the no firearms signs posted.

    Too bad, they lost my business.

    I saw it on two door this afternoon. I will call and clarify also. Seems that they don't enforce the policy, or I never noticed the signs before?

    BULL $#!+



    I was just there, I walked around the entire mall,and checked each entrance, there are 8. I thought 6, but 8. Not including the other store entrances, NONE of which had anything to do with firearms. Only the No Smoking symbol. The rules of conduct are clearly posted at each of the 8 mall enteances, nowhere does it prohibit firearms, openly or concealed.

    Wen I went into the mall, through Bass Pro, I happened to see two Auburn Hills police who were walking around the loop. I made eye contact, said, "this place is packed", they responded with, "yes it is, and I intensionally fell in line ahead of them. The way I carry, you can plainly see the XD from the rear.

    I saw, and nodded to several security while there, no issues, and I spoke with a janitor about someone I suspected of possibly dealing, so he could call it into security.

    Im going back down there this afternoon again if anyone wants to show up. Ill be entering Bass Pro at 6:30.

    The mall is free asd clear for all types of carry.

    (no long guns) I found that out one day talking with head of security.

    Well thats only reasonable i would think....a bunch a guys walking around with AK's and AR's would cause quite the stir im sure

    yep. Im glad they allow handguns, many malls dont. As long as we are respectful, and dont approach people, they dont mind. If someone approaches me, and many do, I can talk with them all I want, and give them trifolds or whatever, as long aswe dont solicit them, its cool. But to start pushing long guns, not gonna happen. At least not yet, at best, it would take years.

    I heard about an OCer who was asked to check his firearm at the door at Bass Pro because he was going to the range. Store Policy. I guess they wanted ID or something, and the OCer was acting like an asshat about it, giving them the "I dont have to show ID" line. Apparently the OCer was kinda being a ***** about the whole thing, (Im getting this second hand) but they wound up letting him in anyhow.

    Personally, I would have told him to leave.

    The ID option doesnt apply to store policy, Bass Pro is private property, and you fill out a form to use the range. They check your gun, but only to use the range. They install a trigger lock, and ziptie the case, They fill out a recept when you come in for the range, and take it back when you leave.

    OCers can walk in armed, they will NOT check, lock, or tie your weapon.

    Good job Stainless!! We all appreciate the time you put in investigating this allegation!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    my pleasure, They have been too good to me down there, to sit by and let them lose buisiness because of some internet rumor.

    Ive kinda adopted trhe mall since I can bring OC to so many people there, in such a sjort timeframe. They dont sell alcohol, so I can be there, and because of bass pro, I would be able to make a reasonable argument with 231a. Although I dont see it happening there, Ive dealt with them, and the police there enough by now.

    This is hard to believe sorry. Let's see some photos of the signs. 2 seconds to take a cell phone pic is all we need.

    that link shows the weapon as sold.

    I diddnt like the grip angle on the glocks, the XD just fit me better. I like the loaded chamber indicator too.

    I was picking up a 2 liter at around 200 feet with target rounds, with the 3" XD.40.

    Have you tried any of these out? If you only intend to own one Glock I'm inclined to recommend the G19...though I guess you won't be using it for CC for another 3 years, so G17 might be better.

    I for one do not like any Glock model in .40 S&W, but then again, I don't like .40 at all. 9mm really is the bread and butter.

    Take all of that with a grain of salt as I'm a 1911 guy...which is better than a Glock, I'm just saying .
