I know a number of people have. In fact, last summer there was a large group carry there one weekend.

A few friends of mine, my fiance, and I open carry there quite often. Only ever had one issue, the owner of a jewelry store ran up to me while I was walking passed his shop and told me I couldn't come in without covering my gun (had no intention of entering the store to begin with). Other than that, the only people who have ever said anything to us are people who were supportive. For any new to open carry who may not be completely comfortable open carrying yet, it's definitely a good place to exercise and gain some confidence.

Never had a problem either. I always go in through Bass Pro Shops. Not sure if other entrances have a no gun sign.
Common sense, isn't.
I can't fix stupid.

Like an OC flash mob?

I believe stainless was a part of it, as was Sean Combs and his brother.

Well one out of two isn't bad I guess. I assume no one was at the food court passing anything out  ::)  :o

I carry a gun because a Police Officer is too heavy.

FYI I was informed by a security guard when I was here a few weeks ago they changed their policy and no longer allow OC.  I obv didn't ask about CC as I was already done with my 90 minute walk for the day and was on my way out when he stopped me.

Is this a policy change, or just one guy with an authoritah complex?

Any signs on the doors, or anything on the policy/rules boards near the doors?

I've never been there, but it seems like it's been considered OC friendly in the past.

I have been there countless times over the years and always OC'd without issue.  I went probably half a dozen times this winter/spring alone when I wanted a walk but it was too crappy outside.  When I go I usually walk for 60 - 90 minutes and see security 3 or 4 times per visit.  This is the only security guard that has approached me (youngest guard I have ever seen there, first time I recall seeing this particular guard, white guy with blonde hair) and he claims it was a change in policy.  I didn't ask for proof of the policy change or when the change in policy happened.  I didn't see signs on the door or ask about CC being permitted.  He simply asked me to take it out to the car but I was already on my last lap of the building so I just left.  Since I wasn't told CC was against their policy I will simply cover it up if I have reason to go shopping there and won't use it for extended walks like I have in the past as I plan to just get myself a treadmill this fall for walking on the winter/snow/rain days in the future.
