MCSC and Aftwards
« on: April 25, 2010, 12:21:54 PM »
So Nate, Jeff, and Myself were at the Midland Gun Show yesterday. All went great! Talked to many people! Passed out a ton of info! And OC'ed without problem the whole time :-)

So then I went to Autozone after to pick up some parts for the truck. I know the Dept Manager (or whatever he is) and he walked up to me, told me that Carry is not allowed at Autozone per corp policy and that he is to ask anyone who carry's... open or conceal to leave. So I said, ok, and walked out.

Then I went to Advance Auto across the street. Browsed around, picked up stuff I needed and in the meantime they had a hundred people there from corp i assume doing a remodel of everything since they are bringing in something like 2000 more in stock products! :-) So I got talked to several of the guys about OC and carry. 1 was leary on it, the other was like... if he is in the back isle and a bad guy comes in... i like knowing u're back there!

He was like... autozone asked you to leave instead of allowing you to purchase what you wanted? They were surprised. But at the same time didnt know their corp policy, but sure wasn't gonna kick me out, since i was there to do business. I came back later with the rented tool and to rent another. 1 of the guys I talked to was like, i talked to the owner and corp and as far as they can tell, there are no policies against it and to carry on (per law of the state). :-D

Now... mind ya... i have carried into this same store about a thousand dozen other times without problem either.

Good job.

Now do what I have adopted in like issues, take the receipts back to the zone and show them their loss of $$$$$. Sometimes it makes an impact...or not.

Wow, you have guards in your Auto Zones?

The Autozone in Westland  on Wayne Rd is listed in the OC friendly businesses. I have OC'ed in there a couple times, no issues. Also the Advanced Auto that's about 500t away. Again no issues. In fact had a nice conversation about OC with a couple employees.
