    I also posted this in the CHL forum, but I think it's important to everyone, not just CHL holders.

    My wife and I stopped at Jared today for some jewelry repair. I noticed an improper 30.06 sign on the storefront. It was white block lettering on clear glass (not contrasting) and was placed on the lower left glass panel, obstructed by a trash can. I almost missed it.

    While waiting, I POLITELY asked to speak to the manager. I asked him why they felt the need to have the sign. He said "It's a shame that we HAVE to have it, in my opinion NOBODY should have a gun, much less be allowed to carry it"

    I was ready to rip into him, but knew that doing so would not further our cause. I POLITELY explained to him that CHL holders have extensive FBI background checks and are just the kind of people he should want in his store. But, since he would rather not have me there, we would look elsewhere for our jewelry repair.

    Be advised, Jared in the forum, San Antonio is 30.06 posted and the Manager hates you.

    What makes that "improper"? Who says white letters on clear glass is not contrasting?

    If the background in the store is white I can see how you could make th eargument that it was not contrasting.

    Although not explicity defined, contrasting colors on your 30.06 MUST be different enough for EVERYONE to see. Case in point: A colorblind CHL holder can't distinguish the hues when set with a white wall behind the transparent glass.

    And yes txinvestigator, I have your next rebuttal already answered.
    Contrast in color depends on the three factors of hue, which is another way to say color; value, which is the lightness or darkness of a color; and saturation, which is the intensity or purity of a color.

    There is nearly complete saturation with white 30.06 lettering on a transparent surface. I won't even begin to discuss the trash can obscuring the sign itself....

    It was not my intent to start a thread about what is , and isn't proper. I was taught that white letters on clear glass is not "contrasting". But that wasn't the point of my thread. Did you miss this...

    While waiting, I POLITELY asked to speak to the manager. I asked him why they felt the need to have the sign. He said "It's a shame that we HAVE to have it, in my opinion NOBODY should have a gun, much less be allowed to carry it"

    Jared has been beat to death in just about every gun forum on the internet. There is really nothing more you can say about them so we are keying in on your assertion that white lettering on clear glass could be less than contrasting.

    Now be quiet and let us argue over details:rofl:

    My god, no kidding!!!!! :banghead: (we need a hammer beating a horse smiley, but for now that'll do :rofl: )

    It's good to hear someone actually asked a manager, although a manger is not who dictate's the signs be posted, but you know there was more to the conversation although only the alarming spinet is what were get. But it doesn't matter what the manager thinks. He's got the same rights as anyone else to his/her opinion.
