    Cool Sam's Club?

    It's literally so seldom I'm on here anymore, and having had the board changed, I can't find anything.....

    Has anyone elved into sams club policy on open carry? I'm disliking the whole costco scenario & have the ability to get a sams club card for no charge....

    my thoughts are that since walmart & sams are basically part of the same corporation, sams should be like walmart & abide by the laws of the state, but I know stranger things have happened....

    what ever happened to the "oc friendly businesses" thread..wasn't it stickied?

    I had a Sam's Club membership for quite a while and always OC'd in there. Never had a problem. There were even a couple of times when other customers made "nice gun, what kind is that?" comments.

    Which riminds me... Ever been open carrying somewhere when someone approaches you and makes positive comments to you about OC, then they tell you that they have their CPL and open their jacket or lift their shirt to show you their gun?

    Something I keep reading on other pro-gun forums, "concealed means concealed". Guess some guys don't really believe that.

    +1 I've run into this twice. I simply inform them that unless they plan on using it, they should cover it up or someone might get scared

    I OC in Sam's Club. I even told the girl at the customer service counter when we joined that the reason we were switching from Costco to Sam's Club was because of Walmart corporate policy on firearms. She smiled at me and said thank you.

    I have to wonder how accurate this website is. Costco at 2219 S 37th St., Tacoma is listed as being OC friendly. So are IKEA in Renton and the Olive Garden in Tacoma.

    We know that all three of these are notoriously anti-gun.

    I've had no problems with OC in Bellingham's Olive Garden.

    I put in 2 of those sites, so at some point someone has updated them to be friendly (our friends with the anti-gun agenda??) I'll contact the site owner and let him know what is happening and maybe he can some sort of a lock.

    just got this from the owner of the FriendorFoe site. In Washington, someone took several "foe" sites and changed them to "friendly." Antigunners? a mistake? we don't know but I asked Chris if there was a way to require reversals with some sort of explanation. here's his email reply......

    Bill,

    First, I'm glad you're using the site and are finding it useful. I've
    got several changes planned, and they should help eliminate rating
    reversals without justification.

    I'd rather not require users to log in or use email verification, as
    that would require much more moderation, and until I can get a system
    in place to allow others to help out with that sort of approval
    process, I simply don't have the time to do it myself. I'm in the
    middle of trying to sell our house and packing for the move, so my
    time is pretty limited currently.

    I'm thinking about adding a 'report this' link to the business popup
    in the meantime, until I can get the other modifications in place.
    Also, I'll take a look at the database and see if anything looks fishy
    (multiple positive reviews at about the same time, etc) and let you
    know.

    I'm sure we can sort this out soon.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Okay. NOW I feel like an idiot. I neglected to click on the business name and didn't see that all three are rated negatively.

    A search feature for finding a store by name would be awesome...
