    I carry literally everywhere I can. A few places are:

    Co. Springs Area
    Wal-Mart in Falcon/Peyton
    Wal-Mart on Platte
    Barnes and Noble in the Citadel parking lot
    Jiffy Lube in Falcon/Peyton
    Checker in Falcon/Peyton
    Autozone in Falcon/Peyton
    Autozone on Powers and Palmer Park
    Checker on Powers jut north of Platte
    Everywhere in Calhan that's legal - including the liquor store
    Liquor stores in Falcon/Peyton
    Dicks on Powers
    Wal-Mart on Powers and Woodmen
    Tire King in Falcon
    Discount Tire on Powers and Woodmen
    Verizon Store on Powers and Barnes

    Denver Metro Area
    Diamond Shamrock on 61st and Federal
    Shell Station on 64th and Sheridan
    Gunther Toody's on 104th
    Bennetts BBQ on 52nd and Wads
    D's Liquor on 106th and Huron (I think)
    Wal-Mart on 72nd and Sheridan
    Little Caesars Pizza on 72nd and Sheridan

    Lol... there are a lot more but I'm beginning to see that a lot of them are food and gas stores. The only unfriendly places I've been are the Corner Store in Falcon (cleared up after chatting with the regional manager who said OC is perfectly fine) and Buffalo Wild Wings which I never heard back from but it seems to be a corporate policy. I'll let you all know of anywhere interesting and also of anywhere unwelcoming. This is a great thread as it will give a solid list of the good and the bad.

    Thumbs down

    Location: Belmar Shopping Plaza Parking Garage
    City: Lakewood
    Subdivision: Belmar
    Nearest Crossroads: Alameda and Wadsworth

    Was open carrying like usual. I had to get a new disc for disc golf so I was heading out to Dicks. Due to construction- the adjacent parking lots where closed off. I was forced into the parking garage. I found an open spot on the second level only to realize- there are posted signs prohibiting the open carry of weapons. They litter the garage like No Skating and Exit signs. They're prevalent.

    And I was having such a nice day out OC. I covered up and went inside. I declined to uncover while entering the store. I got a killer deal on a new disc and I left.

    Word up to anybody shopping at the Belmar- watch for that parking garage as it's clearly privately owned, operated, and posted to prohibit OC.

    I like "Play it again sports" for used discs. I prefer used discs for all my discs except drivers and putters.

    I got an Innova Wraith Distance Driver for 8.89. Used sometimes they are floppy and chipped. All I use is one driver for the whole course.

    Of course, you could do it anyway and challenge them to enforce their policy and turn you away...

    (By the way, that's not a comprehensive list. Off topic.)

    You are carrying open in Denver? Is that legal? I was under the impression that you couldn't carry at all in the metro area.

    Of course you can carry in the Metro Area, just not Denver itself. The suburbs are no problem.

    I have carried open in a few of those places, such as:
    Walgreens all the time
    Home Depot
    Goodwill
    Arbys
    King Soopers
    Golden Corral
    Specialty Sports

    All of them in the southern part of Colorado Springs. I was in Specialty Sports twice last month, once looking for a holster, and the second time when the Ruger CEO was there. BTW, I don't think he appreciated that I liked the GP100 over his plastic cap pistol.
