Easy solution to this. Carry concealed and everytime you walk by or see an Anti Gun Sign, hold up your hand and use your hand to 'flip the sign the Bird'. If any person objects, do the same to the poor offended person.

STAND UP and Fight Back.

I kinda did that at the Stillwater Buffalo Wild Wings.
Walked up to the front door for lunch. Door was held open by the manager for us, but noticed the no gun sign and said sorry, can’t eat here as I’m carrying, turned and started to walk away.
Manager said to not worry about it as long as it’s concealed which is not what the sign said.
Btw Fish Daddy’s in Edmond today has a big sign on their door saying no open carry. Nothing about concealed. Good food btw. Drinks not so good.

Ok, I’ll throw the proverbial bone out there: why are you getting service work done at the most expensive place that it can be performed?

I assume this comment was for me? I don’t find the dealership prices to be much higher for the routine oil change / rotation, etc. I’m willing to pay a little more for trained techs and brand specific knowledge, and parts on hand.

For example, I recently had the brakes on my F250 replaced and the tech noticed a small crack in my water pump. He saved me a big headache that would most likely have occurred somewhere down the road. I’m not sure a quick lube type place would have caught that.

These are not the firearms you're looking for.

I agree with the routine maintenance fees at a dealership. They want to find 'other' things to charge you for. Example, got the oil (synthetic) changed and a front end alignment on my Camry --- total ticket was $99.xx. A synthetic oil change at a quickie place is around $60 by itself. They came back with a whole list of stuff that needed 'attention', such as the entire steering rack (which was bull cockie). However, they missed the cracked/torn upper motor mount/torque arm (which I replaced myself). Trust, but verify.

By the way, there's no such verboten sign in my garage....
