    The oil and gas company I work for has a no firearm policy. I wish they would change it but big companies are pretty set in their ways.

    Right now, there is a .40 M&P in his desk drawer, a S&W 99 .40 in my coat hanging behind me, and a snub .38 in, I assume, her (the daughter's) purse.
    Monday, the Boss was in his office calling the State reps about the gun bills up for a vote, and the week before he was yelling at another one about the Sequester nonsense.
    He listens to the NRA network on his computer all the time.
    So you could say I have it made here.

    Company I work for has a no firearms policy. I have a written exemption to said policy. Mostly because I am the guy the alarm company calls if it goes off at night, secondly because I do most of the firearms repairs for the owners of the company.

    I run a counter at a equipment rental store. The XDs is real close by. Had to almost use it once. Amazing what the bad guy does when you reach under a counter:eek:

    There is a written policy on firearms at work. No firearms allowed inside the workplace. But, I can have it in my car and, being a very small workplace where all the guys are gun enthusiats, we do have show-n-tell frequently.

    But, to carry... no.

    I work for a fairly small company in a small town so everyone knows everyone. I carry and my boss carries. I'm the guy they call up front if someone is "acting up" and they need some Meat on the counter. LOL!

    We talk guns fairly often in my office and most all of my friends are L/E and guns are us :)
