    Glad to see so many able to carry on the job, we can never be too careful with the doom and gloom of today's time.

    It is prohibited at work and in parking lot. Termination if caught with or seen with one in my posession while on work property. :(

    Strictly enforced, especially during hunting season.

    Carry a gun where I work. Yeah OK. You're talking to the guy who almost got fired because he was carrying a SOG Aegis in his pocket.

    When I 1st started my job I carried a buck knife in my back pocket. I carried this most of my life. My manager saw me open a box with it and freaked out. He made me take it out and put it in my car. I work in the field so he had no idea what I had most of the time.

    I have been with my manager for almost 15 years and he wouldn't care if I carried anything anymore. Back then I worked in some of the baddest neighborhoods in Chicago. I was pretty upset that they expected me to go into these areas without even a pocket knife for protection. That buck knife saved my butt one day.

    I have carried a razor knife since.

    I agree. Since that time my manager and I have become good friends. He wouldn't care if I carried an AR-15 now. I had to break him in. :)

    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:
