    Manager said we better bring our guns :)

    I work for one of the top 5 or 6 defense contractors and we recently lost a contract where we are working in the client's spaces. Due to the contract loss we are standing up a new office in the local area.

    One of the goals is to keep the cost down while we chase new work in this business area so, we are looking at inexpensive real estate.

    During the weekly supervisor meeting this morning we were discussing the areas of town that they are currebtly looking at. When he stated one of the areas were fine during the normal business but after hours you will need to have your gun. Then he pointed to me and said if you need training...

    Not gloating and I'm sure corporate would have a differnet take but at least my local management is pretty gun friendly.

    Cool boss. But don't get yourself fired for breaking corporate policy.

    Cool boss but beware, under the current administration defense contractors are under a microscope. I'm sure your company has a clear policy designed to protect its status as one of the top 5 or 6 contractors, it would be a shame for a rogue manager to blow it.

    yeah when corporate comes in and states you should not have a gun and you are the ringleader and "trainer" the friendly manager may remember things differently.

    I'd keep it on the downlow as to not put your boss in an awkward position if someone up the line makes something out of it. I often tell people that work for me that I'm cool with certain things, but I also tell them not to put me in a position I can't defend them either. This way, they know whatever the subject is cool between them and me as long as they keep it cool.

    Carry your gun(s), tell no one and keep it concealed. The manager essentially gave his blessing, don't make a big issue of it where he may be put in a place where he has to retract it later. Discretion is the name of the game on this one.

    Ditto. I'm in a similar situation. Violating corporate policy, but my immediate boss does know that I carry and is cool with it. It's kinda nice knowing I won't immediately get fired if he "found out" but should any trouble come up, well there's not much he could do about that. Do what you do to stay safe, but don't rock the boat at work.

    As one of our fellow DC members says in their signature: "Always carry, never tell". It is a shame you have to watch your six, not for the bad guy criminal but for the bad guy supposed good guy.

    Get it in writing from your boss. If you manage to do so, then go for it. If not, tell him you won't carry a gun and do so anyway with a very concealable weapon. What I don't suggest is to train other staff members since you could be held liable for any accidents or violation of corporate policy.
