    I think I'll just silently support them with my hard earned duckets. I have mixed feelings on this. Part of me feels the same as you (wanting to thank and show support). The flip side doesn't want to draw their attention to something they may not have otherwise contemplated, prompting them to post. After all, inaction doesn't necessarily equate to support. It could simply indicate neutrality through ignorance.

    Are you saying that ignorance is bliss for the lawful consumer? I would rather let them know that the money they are receiving from me is (in part) due to the fact that they respect my constitutional rights. I would also remind them that I will be avoiding their competitor next door for similar reasons. You don't have to make a huge deal about it, simply create an awareness.

    Nothing makes one smile faster than a heart felt thank you. As far as I am concerned there is nothing wrong with thanking someone for respecting the constitutional rights of others.

    I'm in agreement with both sides on this one. I would like to let the business know that I am supporting them because they chose to support me, however I can see the downside of bring attention to the fact that they are not posting.

    With my luck, I would bring attention to the fact that someone stole the "NO" sign, and they'd point the finger at me.

    Not sure if a tri-fold would be the way to go. Maybe a business card? Easier to carry, and they can be printed at home. Avery have business card stock readily available at most large office supply stores, and it's pretty inexpensive.

    As for use of the logo - Nik, Auric, or Hubert would be the route to go. Here's the contact info for them

    No. I think I'm saying that the absence of a no weapons sign does not indicate a conscious decision by the owner to respect our right. Thanking them may put them in a position to now make that decision. We may not like their choice.

    I'm not going to hand out cards. Send email. Send letters. Or accost every manager I see at a non-posted establishment. I'm just going to spend my money where it counts.

    Where I will send a note of gratitude is towards establishments that specifically post they welcome their law abiding firearm carrying customers.

    Just my take, ya'll do whatcha want of course.
