    Circle k says "We Now Sell--Ammo!"

    I was in the Circle-K at Gause West and Carrol Road this am for my morning shot of caffeine. Behind the counter(right hand register) is a very small sign--We now sell ammo. I asked the woman working is this was real or a joke--she looked surprised I thought it might be a joke. "Yes--we do sell ammo" she said. The sign is so small it is hard to read but I was able to make out .45 ACP and .40 S&W but not the prices--too small for my 63 year old eyes even with glasses. The list went on with various other calibers but I could not make them out. Someone with better eyesight could post the entire list. They get my business.

    Circle-K

    They still have the very small No Guns sign down at the bottom left of the door--you have to be actually looking for it to notice it. It's buried in all the other "notices".

    Sent this today.

    This issue concerns both Circle K stores in Minden, LA. Yesterday morning, I noticed a sign near the entrance that prohibits all firearms in the store. This store is conveniantly located on my way to work and I have feuled and purchased other items there numerous times. I am a firearms instructor and a concealed carry permit holder. I carry a firearm with me everywhere I go. I don't know if this is a corporate oversight or simply ignorance, but Louisiana, like Florida, is a very active concealed carry state. Open carry is also legal in Louisiana. Like Arizona, no permit is required for any law-abiding citizen to openly carry a firearm. I do not know when these signs were posted, but I first noticed them yesterday.
    It is certainly within your rights to ban guns in your store. I will honor that request and take my business elsewhere and advise all my associates to do the same. I am a business owner and if I am going to lose a group of customers, I want to know why. That gives me a huge advantage over my competitors! I understand the premise of such a rule, but I somehow doubt that a potential criminal will be detered by a small, barely noticeable sign. I would feel much safer in my place of business if I knew an armed, well-trained citizen was shopping in my store.
    Please reply so that I will know how I and those I influence should procede.

    Heh. The first sign I ever saw that was compliant with Texas PC 30.06 requirements, was on the Arkla Gas office in Texarkana: Texarkana, Arkansas.

    Sounds like fooey to me.

    I guess if it's a liability issue then they are admitting that they have accepted full responsibility for your safety while in the store.
