Welcome to the Friend or Foe web site.  This site serves the gun owner community by listing the experiences people have while out and about carrying a firearm for self protection.  Individuals across the country use the site to share experiences visiting various places of business for the benefit of the entire gun owner community.  Gun owners who Open Carry are especially encouraged to share their experiences as they are obviously more inclined to get a genuine feel for whether gun owners are welcome at the establishment. Those who prefer to carry concealed can help by adding ratings for businesses that they know are friendly or unfriendly, and also by adding ratings for places that are posted with “no guns” or “no weapons” signage.

If you are a gun owner, consider sharing the experiences you have while carrying with those that live nearby.  Simply click on the Map menu item above, and you might find others have already added some ratings in your area.  If not, use the Add Rating link to quickly add your experiences with local businesses in your area.

Green Rating MarkerTolland Cordial Shoppe
71 Hartford Turnpike, Tolland, CT 06084, United States OC'd here several times. The guy that is usually there recognizes me when I come in and is very friendly. Pleasant place to visit.
Green Rating MarkerSteve's Steakhouse Cookie Jar Restaurant
223 Wellborn St, Blairsville, GA 30512, United States Very nice restaurant, excellent food, lovely staff. We eat there a couple times a month, and are always pleased. Have open carried with nary a second look. Love it!
Green Rating MarkerBlairsville Cinema
38 Backyard Ln, Blairsville, GA 30512, United States I called Blairsville Cinema to verify if they had a no-firearms policy, and they indicated they did not. We used to patronize Fieldstone Cinemas 6 in Hiawassee, but they have become anti-gun, and we will no longer spend our money there. I look forward to visiting this theater.
