    Default Costco North Wales - Open Carrier given the boot?

    So, I was in Costco in North Wales hen a noticed a guy open carrying a 1911. He was happily eating a pizza while standing near an unused checkout line. I was pretty surprised to see him OC since it is unusual in this stretch of PA. I walked by him when I saw a Costco employee approach him and say something that sounded like “blah blah blah not allowed, blah, blah” and point to the door.

    OC guy looked around, and said something that i could not hear and he walked out.

    Was that a POOFER?

    I doubt anyone but me noticed anything going on. Even my wife who sees everything missed it.

    American1776 (I believe that is his name on here) has had some OC issues in that area that he posted about. Could have been him.

    I know, I meant that he OCs around there and people seem to have issues with it. He was asked to leave a diner in the area before so being asked to leave Costco today would seem plausible. Although I think he's Asian so that would help confirm.

    Yeah, if it was him we'll soon hear about it. That's out of my territory but I already have heard that they were a 'no guns' shop. My Miami Classic goes unnoticed there.

    ETA: BTW, was the guy Asian? I think 1776 is Asian.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    Costco has been discussed before. If I recall correctly Costco has a no firearm policy although it is not posted on doors. Their philosophy is if you don’t agree with their policy they will refund you the remainder of your membership fee.

    That's the Costco I go to. Hard to believe there was an employee that spoke English.
    I don't speak English , I talk American!

    Isn't that place anti gun to begin with and clearly states that no guns are allowed?

    You have to search their on line site to find out that no guns are allowed. No signage in stores and if I had not read it here in the past I would have no idea they were anti gun.
