What if a "CHLers Welcome" sign?

    The recent topic of 'no guns' signs fresh on my mind, especially in gun stores. I'm curiously wondering how would a store with a "CHLers Welcome!" sign fair? For the sake of actually daydreaming about what it would be like, let's ignore the part about insurance carrier/company liability (if chain) and assume that everyone agreed the risk/sign was ok.

    Since the non-30.06 signs don't apply to CHLers anyway, can the above be another way to word the intended message? I ask this question with some jest. But I'm oddly curious, "what if"?

    I'd imagine a fair number of patrons to the store would take their business elsewhere. They simply don't want to take the chance that they'll be in the same building with a gun.

    I can also see a segment feeling acknowledged and welcome. I can only speak for myself but if I saw that sign at the front of the store I'd first think "Cool!" but in this day and age that I'd also think, "What's the catch" :lolz:

    Anyhow, I'm just wondering outloud, making conversation over my post-run breakfast.

    No Catch!
    If you are doing the conceal part right, who would know?

    Something discreet would be positive, besides no 30-06 sign pretty much states that CHLs are welcome.

    Nice - even Hooter's allows licensed holders to carry.

    That would be fantastic...but short lived unfortunately.
