    so I went to the down the hatch tavern for a burger today, sat down at a table the bartender came to take my order; and very loudly and rudely he said "whhhhh do you have a firearm in here?" I replied politely, "oh, i'm sorry, do you have a no firearms policy?" he stuttered and said "yabba yabba you gotta take that outside!" so, I walked back to my 50,000 dollar truck sitting in front of the door, and told him politely to have a nice day!

    he kind of embaressed me by acting like a dbag.

    I won't be back even on a night when I am unarmed to have a drink!

    It is his right to ask you to leave just as it is your right to carry there.

    My dad owned that bar in the 70's. He would have let you carry in there.

    of course it's his right, I'm not saying it's not, however the way he did it was not.

    also down the hatch is a corporate owned establishment. he could not give me his companies policy.

    I don't recall when him and his partner bought it, exactly. I think it may have been more like 74/5. He passed away in 79. Single vehicle drunk-driving accident. Needless to say I rarely drink, and never drive if I do.

    Congrats guys. I should probably give it up entirely, but that is the one substance I have never had addiction issues with.

    I am 5½ years clean from my demons. :celebrate

    You told me you were not that old. You said you were in your late 20s. What's up, a time warp???

    Well, speaking for myself as an alcoholic....
    I drank my youth away many years ago and to even risk taking a "toast" drink tempts the fermented devil to move in again.

    And no, I don't really miss praying at the porcelain altar with a hang over; promising not to do it again .......till next time.:celebrate
    Not to mention the costs involved.

    Correct me if I"m wrong, but I"d assume (the mother of all mess ups)most taverns make at least 51% of their income from alcohol.

    Wouldn't it then be a pistol free zone?



    A tavern where the primary source of income is the sale of alcoholic liquor by the glass consumed on the premises

    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    I have never seen it spelled that way in 3 years of being on the forum I frequent.

    Looks like we are both right.
