    I was in the Progressive Insurance office today in Victoria and noticed a small, 5X8 approx. size sign at the reception window. It wasn't the legal 30.06 sign but stated that Progressive doesn't let firearms or destructive devices on their company property. In the second paragraph it stated that they didn't allow concealed weapons, whether licensed by the state or not (slightly paraphraed). I got their message and told my son why I don't have their insurance. I was only there to collect on a claim. I would think they have probably lost a lot of business in Texas because it their repressive policy. Let them know what you think.

    Progressive Insurance is a HUGE part of the ultra-liberal secular progressive.

    So they aren't posting 30.06 compliant, not even at the enterance of the business. So no problem for someone legally carrying concealed. Ignore it. ;)

    Progressive insurance sucks. They are real cheap a$$es when it comes to claims. An acquaintance of mine, a car repair shop owner, had insurance through them on his brand new BMW 750IL. I mean we are talking a $90k car here at the time, and a well to do individual paying full coverage that has an excellent record (basically someone they shouldn't be worried about). Now someone broke into the car and broke all 4 door windows I believe. This took place a few years ago, and at the time it had been raining frequently and there had been hail frequently as well. Needless to say, you wouldn't want your $90k car out in the elements getting water damaged. Sure it would only take maybe 1-2 days at most to have the windows replaced, and that wouldn't be too expensive for a rental car. Guess what? Progressive refused to pay for a rental car and told him the car was still drivable so they could not justify it. What a bunch of morons. I had insurance through them at one point years ago, though I have long since switched companies.

    Yea, that's what I understood. If they don't have the FULL 30.06 posting, or the red 50% sign, then you're good to go. You can ignore the ghostbuster gun symbol or the "Progressive" from my understanding. Unless the Progressive office is inside a school/university, government building, sports arena or stadium, you should be ok. I'm not an expert as I just finished up my CHL, so someone else can confirm also.

    I've had USAA for umpteen years now. Insurance is like banking. It's all done over the 'net, mail or phone. I haven't talked to an insurance agent in person since the 80s.

    I'm in agreement, Prosuckive Insurance does just that, my wife - fiance at the time - had her new CRV totalled by one of their drivers that failed to yield at a left hand turn signal that din't have the arrow lit (just yielding left turn), thanks God there were witnesses to the status of the lights, they were the worst I've ever dealt with. :mad:

    The red "51%" sign is intended for places that sell alcohol for ON-PREMISE consumption and derive over 51% of their income from the sale of that alcohol. However, if a non-51% place posts a sign you can ignore it. If a 51% place fails to post and you carry, you can be charged.

    Where do you get government buildings, sports arenas and stadiums are off limits?

    Perhaps from Section 46.035 of the Texas Concealed Handgun Laws. They also include amusement parks and churches as well. There are links available at the top of this "Gun Legislation" section. Sorry but I am indeed too lazy to type it all out and the links are to a .pdf so copying and pasting won't work either.
