    Do you carry to work, or at least to the parking lot? I'm curious.

    My response - No, due to anti gun laws (work in MD but live in gun friendly VA)

    I look forward to the day when I work in VA again....

    Of course. Imagine the chaos if someone brought a gun to a military installation.

    Yes, Work in KY they have the can carry to work an can lock in your car with no reprocutions, but live in ohio where it is a AT-Will state. After a few years you just get good at the lock up hide it and go in routine, like changing into work boots after you get to the parkling lot, no one seems to notice if you have a routine that looks normal.

    If I carry at work it is grounds for immediate dismissal.

    I will not state what I do.

    I started a whole thread on that very issue in VA forum. In my particular case it is highly unlikely that even if discovered carrying they would fire me. They'd simply say, don't bring it to work. Or they may not say a damn thing I don't know. I've been very lucky to have good bosses. But in any case, as I mentioned in that thread, if SHTF so badly that a pair of scissors or some such field expedient office weapon wouldn't suffice, then it's gone beyond job security and I'd rather be prepared for that.

    But I understand lots of people are in jobs with an absolute zero tolerance and would be crucified and unemployed rather quickly. VA is an at-will state as well.

    Can't do it. Work site is a gov't facility and that includes the parking lot. Parking on the street or other lots is not an option. My last contract was also a gov't facility, but at least there was street parking and I locked up my piece in the vehicle.

    I'm a civilian, working on a military installation. Concealed carry is forbidden and all firearms have to be "registered" with the law enforcement desk (Security Police). So, no, I don't carry at work. Can't even leave the firearm in the car. 30 years of active duty & a Top Secret security clearance, notwithstanding.

    Company policy is against it, especially with a security clearance...

    I commute to work on public transportation, so no vehicle to lock it up...

    I work in DC :shock:...

    I will conceal once the supremes spank DC.

    Carry authorized by company owners. The ladies always comment on the style of holsters since I compare it to their shoe or purse purchasing...

    Color, style, can never find that perfect one for every outfit. Ok, that sounded strange.

    Actually I have two jobs, one of which requires me to carry (armed security) and the other as a tutor at the local university. Even though there is no state law against it, the university does not allow it; the university policy is that any student who is found to be in violation of this policy will be expelled. Since I am not a student, I'm not sure what would happen to me, but nevertheless, I try to remain as discreet as possible about carrying (I carry in a SmartCarry while I'm there).

    I'm lucky enough to work for a family owned retail store that has a weapons policy........"The carry of concealed firearms is fully authorized by **************** Inc. In fact, employees are encouraged to carry concealedwhile at work. Due to the nature of our business, we are a likely target for armed robbery. We believe you must stand ready toprotect yourself everyday so you may see your family every night. It is against company policy to use firearms to prevent the loss of property. All property is fully insured and will not represent a financial burden if lost. You are to defend yourself, NOT OUR PROPERTY."

    Best job ever.

    Yes, CC. Although it's technically against company policy, one of the owners told me that it is "don't ask, don't tell". Another owner, told me to go ahead.

    Everyday for the last four years. Our company has no policy against weapons. Not sure what would happen if someone found out so I'm discreet. I can't carry on my person due to the nature of my work, so I keep it secured close by.

    If I was to carry and get caught I would lose my job. They won't even allow it to be locked up in the parking garage. On the bright side however, I've been working to get some changes made in the policy because of the ban they enacted 5 years ago. I have HR & the head of security on my side, now I just have to convince a board of directors and legal. You folks may remember the Seattle Jewish Federation shooting (July 2006)? You should have seen the jaws drop when I informed them the shooter had been a security guard at our company. I’ve gotten a lot of useful information from this site and its many members.

    My company curiously came out with a new workplace policy manual that no longer states "No Weapons", but instead broadens the policy on workplace harrassment. I treat it as a "concealed means concealed" situation, and haven't had a problem yet.
