I have a safe for under the car seat for times I can't carry in somewhere.2. Do you feel safe taking your firearm off and leaving it in the car in places where its prohibited or do you simply not carry the day you have said plans to visit said place?
This one depends on your company, the policies and your state. In my example, I live in a right to work state so it is fairly easy to get rid of someone. My last company didn't have a specific policy prohibiting firearms, even though I knew of several people who would have been freaked out if they knew I was carrying. I was comfortable carrying due to no policy in place. That changed just as I was leaving to go to work for my current company.Would you ever risk carrying at work if they have a no firearms policy for employees? Going to be putting in my CCW stuff tomorrow and am a lil nervous about carrying for obvious certain reasons. To me it dont make much sense to carry if you aren't doing it religiously but I figured y'all could offer a little more insight!
My current company has a specific policy prohibiting employees from carrying any "weapon". Now I'm in IT so I always have a knife on me, but that is also considered a tool and is ok. I have brought this up before that we are not 30.06 posted, so customers can carry but I can't, moreover bad guys will carry, and I still cant'. It didn't go anywhere, so I dropped it (for now)
As for the being nervous, good. It will keep you focused on your new life. Don't' worry, it will get easier to carry and walk among the sheep.
