You should've immediately bent over holding your back and told them if they were doing their job, you wouldn't have had to lift drywall and expose weapon.

I would write a letter to corporate, copying the store,stating that you expect an apology from both corporate and the local store. As a company that sell gun safes, that does not have a sign posted nor a policy on their website, I have a feeling the guy who you spoke with lied to you.

I am OK with companies that are anti-gun, that is their right. I am not OK with companies that talk out of both sides of their mouth.

I'll not side with Lowe's or any other store with such a policy, but.....

When I got my Utah permit, it was made clear to me that exposing my weapon, accidentally or otherwise could be grounds for losing said permit. Maybe you got lucky? Or maybe the law is different in your state?

Besides, concealed is concealed right? If no sign was posted it seems to me you are within your rights to carry...concealed that is. This particular manager right or wrong was reacting to an unconcealed weapon.

You're right, but in Michigan if you ignore a request to leave you can be charged with trespassing. If they really want to push the issue they can claim you were brandishing...

Need to let us know if you here from their corp. office. If that is the case I guess I will be going to Home Depot from now on..That sucks, because I hate The Depot.
Bottom line need to keep it concealed all the time.

An iobviously accidental exposure of the weapon, not even in the hand, is not brandishing.

2. To display ostentatiously. See Synonyms at flourish.

Dude shut up. Some of us don't like carrying small ass guns because of several downfactors, including poor caliber choices, poor accuracy, to much recoil, low magazine capacity and so on.

Sometimes guns are going to print or even get shown because of certain movement. There is no reason to ditch a quality firearm thats better for defensive purposes for something like a Keltec just because you afraid some person is going to get upset that they saw your gun.

Being that this place of business didn't post any signs he wasn't breaking the law. I go all the time to places with "corporate" policies against firearms and carry. The worse they can do to me is ask me to leave, which I will. Now if there was a state posted sign legally forbidding it, its a different story. I'd still go in, but I'd be more careful.
