Do you carry at work?

ApexxApexx MemberPosts: 111 Member
A question posed to those who

1. Are NOT self employed.
2. Are NOT required to carry a gun as normal course of buisiness. LEO, Military, Security, Rancher, etc..

I am currious to see how many rat racers doing the 8 to 5 in an office environment (or other) actually carry on the clock.

If so what is it you do for a living?

    I'm a non-sworn state employee. I'm disallowed from carrying while on the clock.

    Well, since it violates state law and would cost me my Paramedic's Lic..... the answer is "no"

    I've worked most of my career (now retired) for large/medium oil industry engineering firms. Place I worked a few years ago had a modest size office in a general 3-story building. There was a state welfare branch office down the hallway and on "Democrat" day (registration day for lots of bums), I'd put my Glock into my shoulder bag. Nobody of course ever knew that.

    Another large oil service company (very famous firm) where I did consulting was a large complex of buildings, armed guards at the entrance, signs up saying that weapons were not allowed "on campus". I had my pistol in the car anyway, nobody ever knew that either.

    That was typical for most places I've worked --- large complexes with their own gates and security. So my pistol stayed in the car.

    "That was typical for most places I've worked --- large complexes with their own gates and security. So my pistol stayed in the car."

    I worked for a time in a high security facility, most personnel with a few exceptions, cleaning staff and a few others, clerical, accountants, however most others were required to be armed at all times....

    I do maintenance for an apartment complex. I dont carry during normal business hours but i am required to be on call and sometimes i get calls in the middle of the night. So in these cases, i always carry my gun. I Also just graduated the police academy in may so i will need to start carrying a gun for work in the near future.

    I work on a Military property and personally owned weapons are not authorized inside the gate.

    Is there some part of "concealed" that people just don't understand? Maybe they're the same ones who have trouble with "shall not be infringed". Maybe I'm packing- - - -maybe I'm not. Unless the defacation contacts the air handler, nobody needs to know.

    Wow...Really? If you have a problem with indicating you carry at work then why post in the first place?

    Right. Some days I feel like baring my soul to the entire world, and some days I don't.

    My "work" is being retired, traveling several states doing automotive warranty inspections, building custom guns, or antique automobile engines. Sometimes I carry, sometimes I don't. Come visit me and try to do some harm. I'll be more than happy to show you which one I've got concealed that day, for about half a second.

    The only weapons allowed on Anniston Army Depot are to large to carry concealed. They have several gov type signs that tell you no guns. The gate guards can search your car at random but not your person with reason. In the five yrs I've been on the Depot there have been more than a few violations.
