    Well, I wondered when the storeI work atwould receive enough customer complaints on my OC of a firearmfor my boss to ask me to conceal. He pulled me aside,a couple of days before he left on vacation, and said while he supported OC , he had enough people express their being uncomfortable shopping where an employee was allowed to, that he had to ask me to conceal. I asked him if he would still allow customers to OC and he said he would. So win some lose some. I did like that he told the people that complained that probably as many people came here because I did OC. I still wear my MOC/Guns Save Lives button.

    Sounds reasonable since he didn't ask you to not carry just conceal. I could live with that.

    Yea that's a LOT better than most employers. At least you can carry while at work CC is better than NC (no carry)

    Where do you work? I work for my dad in manufacturing and he is all about guns. But still I can't OC or CC. I bring guns to work and shoot all the time but off the clock. I'm pretty sure I can't for insurance proposes. I guess he doesn't want to have to pay for the court fees and lawsuits that may be incurred by lawful self defense. I'm OK with it because he always has a few gun on him and in his office, Desert Eagle, and a few 1911's among others.

    If he is carrying then why would it make any diff?? He shoots someone you shoot someone...as long as it is a good shoot there would be no civil case!

    do you have your CPL? I would just carry concealed at work. Or you could use a flap military holster.
