The "sign issue" is a very big thing here.

A "heads up" can be obtained in many ways: by experience sharing on OCDO, by looking at Friend or Foe , or by simply presuming that you will not have a problem until you do......someone had to take the first step, break the ice.

Gun Buster signs OTOH are there for all of the world to see and thereby help to promote and further the idea that guns are bad. Suggesting their use in fact encourages putting them up. Please don't.
Well first let me say I have just begun to navigate this oc world was unaware of the alternative site for communication.
I still am not sure I quite agree with the sign concept as you see it, however I would hope to not offend the forum protocols or let's say philosophy . Thank you for the education I will strive to do my part to follow the guidelines.

Didn't mean to come across as offensive - my desire is to inform, sharing experiences.

I can understand and appreciate your views, from your profile I see you have been very involved in this movement I have nothing but respect. Please be aware I am also very passionate about this as well and with now having that option to oc I only hope to help validate all of the work done by so many of you. I would like to help in any way and I guess with so little feedback from this state I became over zealous.

I believe that what transpired here was a true opportunity for us to carry on this message and all that can should be exercising this right as much as possible.

Thank you for your direction and I look forward to more post from others as well as yourself.
Thanks
Fred

Hello well today I cruise into the main st tupelo renasant bank oc as always and am approached by some older lady employee who ask am I Leo I reply no just oc she tells me I can't be there with weapon I tell her I am sorry I saw no posting and have been coming in every week and was there Monday and saw no sign she then try's to tell me it's been that way for 3 weeks or more and at all branches however as I look at door they did add a gun buster sign very hard to see and next to the normal sign about hoodie, sunglasses ect . I told her I would secure then I called the vp friend at the other branch in another local town he was surprised and said there has been no rule applied company wide and did relay to me this woman was a pain to deal with already the funny thing is she almost acted half afraid and still somewhat empowered sad realty all the tellers know me and have never even acted like they cared I actually think I may have inspired this ban as I am in there regularly so I'm going to the other branch in tupelo to ck with them see if same policy really don't understand this need to make this such a scary thing boggles my mind just remember to look these signs are not that easy to read however I was polite and made sure she couldn't say I was an ass
No prob anywhere else went to lunch and few other places guess it's just funny to see this need to think they are empowered ! Have good night all

The Renasant Bank in Pontotoc has a sign too. I was already annoyed by the no hat rule. This pushed it over the line. I will take my money elsewhere.

I agree I have been with them since 2004 sad however it would be nice if all gun owners would boycott all negative 2admen places whether they carry or not. Somehow have to make a tangible statement.

OC at Neon Pig in Tupelo

Due to the cold, I was wearing a jacket and thus CC outdoors and OC indoors. The Neon Pig was packed for Valentine's dinner (including the owners), but I got a tall stool just inside the door. Nobody seemed to notice, and certainly nobody objected.

FYI, Neon Pig is a charcuterie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charcuterie) off Gloster. Definitely worth checking out.
