Fix-n-Feed hardware and ranch supply in Bonham posted both signs. Looks like I get to drive five more miles up the road to T.S.C. or Bonham Hardware. I can except the 30.07, but I will not accept the 30.06.

Bonham is still small and people drive in from quite a ways in the outskirts. This will not go well for them.

Boss informed me today that she would be posting both. She said me and only me had permission to still carry concealed on the property.

CRAP!!!

Had my 7 year old daughter with me all day. Two stores in McKinney and Cabela's in Allen. Carried concealed everywhere we went. I'll be damned if we will ever go into any place that tells me I cannot protect us.

All the OC push is basically backfiring as many businesses who never had never posted before are now posting both signs.

It is yet to be seen whether folks upset about the 30.06 signs will have enough of an effect to cause them to back down. But I doubt it will.

Anyone ever heard of a business that actually suffered a noticeable drop in revenue from posting no handgun signs?

You ever spent any time around Bonham?

edit: FYI there is a Tractor Supply two miles away, as well as a very good hardware store 5 miles away. Not to mention a Fastenal on the square. I'm close friends with the son in law of the Police chief. Even he is upset. We'll see what happens. I'd bet the 30.06 sign comes down.

I would not have expected it in a rural feed store.

Exactly. 30.06 and 30.07 signs going up all over Fort Worth where there weren't any 30.06 signs before open carry.

I haven't been into town yet, so I don't know how it's going here. (My shop and my home are a few miles apart, both in the county.)

I WILL be speaking with store owners who put up new 30.06 signs. Posting 30.07 doesn't bother me at all, but I do not wish to lose the ability to protect myself and my family. If all of us explain this position in a polite, calm and professional manner, they just may notice that they are driving away the wrong type of customers.

Yes, I have seen it work before for small businesses who need their customers.

If you choose to avoid a 30.06 location, be sure to tell business owner why they are losing your business.
