I guess I'm thinking gun shop parking lot, because the owners won't be out there necessarily, and nobody's going to bat an eye about 2 people looking at guns..
I assumed that is what you meant. I still don't think it is such a good idea. That of course is my opinion.
I have used Target, Safeway, and a few other public places. Unless you plan on hanging out for a couple hours the liklihood that someone will call the police, and that they will arrive before you leave, are very slim.
There is absolutely nothing illegal about it and perhaps anyone who does try to cause a stink about it will get an education on that.
I am not saying to make a spectacle out of it, but just meet the person somewhere and make the transaction. Don't go waving anything around in a manner that might be perceived as intimidating and all should go smoothly.
I wouldn't go to the south end to find an industrial area. That is where actual crimes take place and they might be watching for it.
