    I could not believe it

    I could not be believe an employee of mine finally saw I keep in my toolbox at work,a 9mm Bersa Thunder in my socket drawer.I keep it in a zipped up case.I run an auto salvage yard with my father and I do keep my toolbox, A Mac locked up when I do something when I am not there doing errands.Rest of my employees don't know about it yet.My father did have a word with me about it,he knows I lock it up when I am not there.I have not used it yet.

    So whats the problem ?, was the employee upset about it ?. As long as the gun is kept legally there shouldn`t be a problem.

    The employee thought I was crazy at first and was not upset at all.It comes in handy,I shoot out broken side glass with it if not in good shape.

    If you keep the gun zipped up in a case, it sounds like the employee was being i bit nosey ?. And regardless of what he thinks, your not crazy for having a gun at work.

    I guess what I think is crazy,is the fact that altho MI has concealed handgun licenses why you don't have one,and carry the firearm with you,there isn't too much worse than needing a gun now,and having it in a tool chest 20 feet away

    Working in and around cars can present problems for concealment. Still I would find a way to have it on me rather than over there.

    Not a good idea IMO. Too many things can go wrong in this situation. While you are destroying the window, where is your bullet going? What is going to happen if you hit an angled beam with your shot. Your looking at a possible ricochet or redirection of the bullet with no idea where it will end up. A 16oz hammer or a 3/4" breaker bar is a better and safer choice.

    If your going to exercise your right to own a gun, you have a responsibility to do it safely. Get yourself some training. Get your carry permit, and keep your gun on you. It's no protection locked in a tool box.

    My only concern about the other employee is that he now knows where a gun is available--for whatever reason.

    I do have a ccw.I got it out to reload it and he was shocked.I am a good shot thanks to practice,I hit the glass just right in the center.My father was concerned at first,said it would be easily stolen and I told him I always lock up my toolbox.

    What happens when your tool box goes missing? How can you get to your pistol in a hurry when you need it? That is what they are trying to say to you. Wear the damn thing. I wear a high capacity 1911 and crawl around office furniture and climb ladders. That tiny Bersa is a piece of cake to conceal. Welcome aboard.

    Find a way to carry that pistol or just forget getting it if you ever need it. I worked as a carpenter for 20+ years and carried a j frame size revolver in my front pocket every day. Figure it out or buy a pistol you can carry. Haveing ccw is worthless if you don't carry and pratice from the holster and position you carry in. Better haveing a small 380 you will carry than a 9mm you won't.
