    Green Bay west side Fleet Farm

    So I stopped in to check out the handguns, pick up some off, and got a little toy for the kid while I was there.

    On my way to the cashier a white shirt (manager I presume) came up with a very concerned look on his face and says:
    Him:Excuse me? Is that a gun?

    Me: Yes

    Him: Is it real?

    Me: Yes

    Him: Are you with law.. are you some sort of police officer?

    Me: No. Open Carry is legal in WI, and I was under the impression Fleet Farm knows the laws and is fine with open carry.

    Him: Oh. Ok. (visibly worried and distraught over the gun, and he walks away)

    I proceed to the check out and leave, and everything is fine.

    So what gives?

    I really hope not. I love Fleet Farm. I would hate to have to go to Gander to buy my outdoor equipment, and to *cringe* Home Depot for tools and construction supplies.

    Pretty much any store will price match. :-) If they want to post, they are more than welcome to do so.

    Wanna clarify your position a bit, before some of the ladies around here (who also carry, & pee sitting down) get it into our heads to be irritated with you?

    The guy wasn't familiar w/ store policy or state law.
    It upset him that a peaceful customer was armed.
    Hopefully he learned something.
