    and just encourage a nut to escalate and use a more sneaky approach to harming you --- via harming your family. I think
    you got off lucky.

    I second what someone posted above about reading The Gift of Fear. It covers these situations very well.
    The author provides a bunch of dos and don'ts and a list of what he calls pre-incident indicators; which are little
    things that help you evaluate the risk. Some of them are things most of us would not think about or pay attention.

    I highly recommend that book to everyone, not just the folks presently in the difficult situation.
    I agree. It was when the old "Virginia Tuck" rule was in place. We were there, shirt tucked behind holstered gun, and he showed up. With young kids, you're getting up and down constantly to pick stuff up. Not much I could do. In that situation, I had to do the firing. I had met with him a couple days ahead and had to suspend him to investigate a situation. Then had to call him back for the firing. He stood to lose his job, professional license, get in legal trouble, and could have caused him family problems. When a person seems to be losing everything they are dangerous. His showing up and riding by my house went on several weeks until that evening in the restaurant. Fortunately, that was the end of it. It could have gone either way from there. For a long time after that, I kept looking over my shoulder. Now I live 700+ miles away.

    I fired one guy who was a complete whacko, and on all types of med's, etc...... he had an anger issue ++++++++++ ..... and I figured I'ld see him approach me somewhere at some point. However, what I did get was a railroad spike thru the sidewall of my tire, but nothing else.

    Now, on the other side, when I was in college and starting a new job in not that great of an area...... a guy the day before had gotten mad at the Manager and threatened he would be back and "get him". My first day of work, he walked in with a .38 in his hand (fairly concealed) and walked right up to the Manager , shoved it in his stomach, and fired 6 shots killing him.

    So.... you just never know.

    I think the more vocal they are , the better ... because they get some of it out of their system and no one is going to be happy if they are fired, especially in these times. I think it's the quieter one's I would watch out for who keep it all inside....

    They guys that do stuff like that, they're always interviewing the neighbors afterwards and they say, "He was kind of a quiet fellow, never said much...just kept to himself...a loner."

    I had a similar situation happen at work. We notified the police that we may have an angry person who acts irrationally show up and asked them to keep an eye on the place. We knew that this person had scheduled to show up and meet with my boss, so the police agreed to sit out in the parking lot while this meeting took place and we all kept their number on speed dial. I think their presence was enough to deter this person from trying anything crazy, although they did ram into their spouses car in a parking lot the next day and my boss' tires mysteriously all went flat.

    This may be a little paranoid, but after the meeting with the boss, have someone watching him as he walks out to his car.

    If you see him getting something out of the trunk, better lock the door and get ready...

    Just sayin'... That's how these things go down a lot of times...

    Good Luck and Be Safe!

    I would suggest you preposition the CCWers around the business. Make sure that all the non-armed people are told to duck and let the sheepdogs do their thing!

    Maybe the meeting should be set up at the YMCA. In the pool.

    Well, if I were fired by a manager, I too would ask to speak with the boss... just sayin... me thinks this is a non-event and nothing to worry about... After all, he is trying to save face by announcing he wants to speak to the boss...

    Update: The meeting with the Boss went ok apparently, absent any harsh words or threats. The Boss was able to defuse the situation and although the ex-employee is understandably upset over the firing, the consensus is that nothing more will happen. Time will tell of course, so SA, especially at work, will be a major focus (at least for me) for some time to come.

    You cannot believe how tense some folks were this morning.....thanks for your comments and suggestions!

    'Glad to hear that. It's always better to be prepared and nothing happen, than the other way around.

    Yup, so far so good, but don't want to get complacent any time soon!

    Can you position shooters around the office? Maybe have someone with a rifle in position? ;)

    I wouldn't worry about it.
