    Looking for a New Bank!

    Moving to Greeley in a couple weeks from WI. I will need a new bank. If anyone can list off some carry friendly banks, then I can see what's in Greeley, compare rates/benefits and such and then choose a bank.

    I don't want to end up finding a bank online and filling out an application or something, then get to the bank to find out they don't support my rights to carry.

    I currently have a credit card and car loan through Chase Bank, and I saw a Chase Bank in Greeley while visiting. Anybody have any info on them? What about 1st National Bank. I had a credit card through them once and they were nice. The checking/savings accounts seem better than Chase.

    Thanks

    Im not sure about their carry policy but I bank at Bellco Credit Union and love them. I have a car loan and a credit card with them and they are both lower rates then what Chase offered me.

    I would recommend against doing business with any banks that participated in the bailouts, as they are on the way to getting nationalized: http://bailout.propublica.org/main/list/index

    I'd also avoid Chase based on personal principle. They screwed me with a credit card account with no reason to, and they care absolutely nothing about customer service.

    And US Bank: http://eddiepatin.com/pblog/index.ph...y091115-102254

    I opened an account with First Bank of Colorado, because they're local (but also large), won't take gov't money, and didn't have a problem with me OC'ing in there the one time I did.

    Do a search on Chase bank. They are EXTREMELY anti 2a. They won't even do a small bus. loan for anything firearms related. It is corporate policy.

    I bank with US Bank here in Idaho. Locally friendly to oc and one of the idaho forum members is a manager at one of the local branches. Welcomes oc into his bank!
