Pantex FCU in Borger posted 30.07
« on: April 18, 2017, 06:32:45 pm »
So, I went in to the credit union today. I knew, from last time I was there, that it was posted so I left my sidearm in the truck.

The teller saw my empty holster and said "Thank you for doing that." The rest of the conversation went like this:

Me: No problem, but may I ask why y'all decided to post it?
Her: Well, when somebody comes in openly carrying a gun we don't know whether they're a law abiding customer like you or someone set on robbing us.
Me: I'll let you in on a little secret - criminals don't obey signs. They don't even have holsters, most of the time. All that you've achieved is to remove my ability to protect you in the event of a robbery. I guess I could try to jump in front of the bullet, but I'm just not as fast as I used to be, so I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I really do wonder what led them to post the signs? Neither Happy State Bank, where I do my business banking, nor Amarillo National Bank, where I have my safety deposit box are posted, so why Pantex FCU?

Maybe I'll write the head honcho (or honchette, iirc) and ask.
A kitten told me to do it.

We use the People's Federal Credit Union in Amarillo & they have signs posted. :-\
I see that there is evil, and I know that there is good, and the in-betweens I've never understood....

Closed my account at Amarillo Community Federal credit Union  after 32 years, when I found they had 30.06 signs.

Unfortunately, there are more and more signs popping up.
