    The important part is to reassure them know that you're familiar with its workings and aren't terrified of it, so be sure to add "....and I'm not afraid to use it!"

    Apparently there's an elderly woman who's prone to doing that in Lawrence County... I wish I was there to have witnessed it.

    That's my Gran ma ma, be nice to her.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

Pretty intimidating sign if you’re not 100% sure of the state law requiring them to allow you to store it inside.
    Exactly what I noticed. Makes it look like you'll get a real close look at the tile floor if you enter armed. They always seem a bit prickish so I never tested the system.

    I ended up going in anyway after going over the statute again and verifying they have to offer storage, once in there they were actually pretty nice and professional, I just calmly explained before going in the line for the metal detector that I needed to check a firearm and they said no problem and showed me to the lockers on the other side of the room.
