question 
Does anybody know what their policy is for CC? I checked their website and don't see anything there but I know it's down with Citizen's bank park and the Linc' and both of those places are no-go. I don't want to go into the city unarmed and also don't want to have to stick my gun in the car in that parking lot.

One guy says they have lockers, the other guy says they do not and they have a policy against carrying. Also the newest post was from over a year ago so I'm not sure if policy has changed. I've posted the same question there and was hoping to get a more solid response. Guess I'll just call there to be safe. Thanks for the link though.

Just to let you guys know, I went to see Kevin Hart (he's a comedian) last Thursday. I hadn't been able to contact them in time so I left everything at home. I walked in actually looking for signage and saw none, handed the guy my ticket and walked through the turnstile and went to my seat. No wand, no pat down, nothing.
I don't know if this was because it was a show or if it's a new policy. Maybe we were the first people to walk in there in a while and they forgot, since the Sixers are terrible and hockey may be on permanent hiatus... again.

Last season I got wanded there twice for Flyers games. Both times it was from my head to my waist. When I went in with a Lexus Club ticket through the box office, I wasn't wanded. I don't know if it was policy of the NHL, Flyers, or the building.

On the Arena Info section of their website, where "You've come to the right place to learn about everything in and around the Wells Fargo Center", there is no mention of a weapons policy. Between that and the lack of door signs, I'd say you could at least make the argument if found out that you'd done your due diligence to find a policy if one did exist. It might cost you a walk back to your car (which could be considerable time), and dealing with locking up a weapon in an unattended vehicle. IANAL and that shouldn't be construed as legal advice.

My buddy strapped his G26 onto his ankle and the guy wanding at the Eagles game didn't find it. My other buddy tucked his LC9 into his sock and got his firearm into the game too. Both of them are LEOs so I don't really consider it a big deal. As much as I support our 2A rights and am for carrying at just about every place humans travel, I do support the gun ban at the Eagles games. There are too many drunken, idiotic Philadelphians there and for once I don't recommend firearms in that location. Honestly, I don't even think off-duty cops should be allowed to carry there (and technically they can't) because a lot of them are the biggest drunks off all. Wink

Twice this year I've been patted down and wanded at the Linc VIP entrance. Both times they wanded down to the ground. I was glad I'd decided against the PF9 in an ankle holster. I had to give up 2 of my folding knives. I usually take the train in and take one of those Ozark trails $1 folders from Walmart. At least then I can protect myself for half the trip, and didn't lose much if I get "caught".

I had a $18 gerber that I'd forgotten I had on me going through the Phils VIP entrance. I told them I wasn't going to miss half the game by walking to the car and back so I threw it in the garbage by the door.

After the game, we'd spent a couple hours at McFaddens and on the way back to the car, I grabbed the garbage bag and took it to the car. It was only 1/4 full and was mostly empty bottles. I got the knife back and deposited the rest of the bag in a nearby dumpster.

It would be nice if they provided lock boxes for those who took public transportation down to the games. When I was at Temple, I took the Broad Street line for a few Phillies games. Granted I was with a large group of friends and there were a ton of other Phillies fans on the train, I wouldn't do that again without my firearm.
