    Cool Pearl Bass Pro Shop

    My family and I walked into BPS to check out the fish and buy a backpack for my wife. It seemed simple. As soon as I passed the "gate guard guy" he stops me.
    GGG: Are you in law enforcement?
    Me: no.
    GGG: You needed to install a trigger lock.
    Me: Is this corprate policy.
    GGG: It is our policy.
    Me: I would like to speak to the manager.

    While waiting for the "manager" I turned on my voice recorder.

    Manager: Do you have a firearms permit?
    Me: Of course
    Manager: May I see it?
    Me: No, you're not law enforcement. (How dare you say "no" to the "manager" of BPS)
    Manager: We can't have people wondering around the store with a firearm on their side.
    Me: I've been here three or four times without a lock on my gun.
    Manager: No one has ever asked you to install a lock.
    Me: No
    Manager: Ok, do you have anymore questions? (like I was questioning him)
    Me: No, I'm fine.

    The audio is much better. As soon as I figure how to post it.

    Hah! I 'snuck' past our gatekeeper woman because I got sick of waiting for her to quit running her mouth and notice that I was standing there, much less that I was OC. I was hoping a manager approached me so I could complain about her... But I was allowed to shop with no harassment. Even bought some ammo, and the guy at the ammo counter couldn't have cared less.
