    ATF coming to my work

    Hey all,

    Sometime in the near future the ATF should be making an apperance at my work. I carry into work and lock it up in my toolbox. Not sure if i will even interact with them while they are there i assume i will be but not sure. So im not sure if i should treat it like if i were interacting with the police or what to do? Anyone have any experience with this?

    Avoid them, and ask your employer if you have to answer their questions. Look into a lawyer, CYB.
    Finally DO NOT LIE. Get full names if you have to talk to someone.
    Also do not LIE, I can not stress that enough.
    Be polite professional, but finally do not LIE.

    Other then that shouldn't be a problem for you personally unless your employer is in deep doo doo.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    When I had to get my FFL they had to look at my facility and make sure I was storing stuff safely, plus back ground checks on employees

    I doubt they will even look at you - the owner (your boss ? ) is the guy who gets checked out.

    Don't get them wet, avoid bright lights and don't feed them after midnight.


    You'll be fine, they probably won't even look your way. They will just want to see the building and that the company is actually set up to to the type of business they claim they want to do.

    Fire two warning shots upon their arrival and deploy your badge and sash. Await their instructions.


    Real world, if your gun is locked in your tool box it's not really considered concealed carry. I gather your question is do you have to inform of the firearm to LEO so with it locked up and not readily available I'd say your fine to not inform unless they ask if you have a firearm on the premise.

    I didn't even know they were in the shop when we got our new FFl. Just go about your daily routine and don't pay any attention to them.

    There you go... Been there... You have no issues to be concerned with if you are legal to own/carry a firearm. One of my customers has government and military people at their sites weekly. You would not be even a blip on the radar.

    And for, TerriLi's, comment: DITTTO! Government people seldom ask you a question they don't already know the answer to.

    Be cool and everything will be as smooth as well aged whiskey...

    I had several visits when I was still in a sporting goods department. I have to say that they were all pretty good people (at least all the ones I had contact with). They are not idiots, just answer their questions as well as you can. Asking for their advice alwaysd seems to work well.
