Since it was very obvious you were made (guy knew he didnt mistake your carry), I would probably have been friendlier. Catch more flies with sugar and all that....
May have created a negative relationship where a positive one could salvage the situation. Hope it works out ok.

The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
You shall receive 10 lashes with the rod!!! How dare you show a "dangerous" holster by accident!

They're a Wisconsin business also. To some a home sate business is a good thing...to me it just means I have to pay shipping charges AND sales tax!
If it was me - I would go buy a pda / smart phone holster and start carrying that at work and leave all weapons related equipment locked in the glove box. Leave your shirt out as before and if questioned pull the PDA or smart phone holster out.

I work for an employer that covers many states. They have a no weapons policy and had claimed they would enforce it regardless of Wisconsin law.
I sent a copy of the law to the company, then in front of 20 other employees I informed the company police and a Senior manager.
" My hangun is secured in a locked vault in my car. It is in the lot just down from the front door. Wisconsin law allows it and I fully intend to keep it there.
Your argument that the law does not apply to you is flawed." It has been a couple weeks now I had full expected them to search my car and make a case. So far nothing except thank yous from others that would never take a stand.
Dobbs, good luck. Let us know how it works out.

Someone must stand up that applies to all kinds of issues. I am in a position that if they had made a move I could deal with it. My life would not change.
There are others that could never take the chance even if they knew they would win in the end. I did not get where I am by sitting in the back or taking the softer easier path.
Not saying I am any better than anyone else. It is just the way I am. You do not know how many times in my life I had wished I could sit this one out and let someone else take the lead. Just not something I am able to do.
We are at a turning point in this country if we do not stand up now we may wake up to a country we do not like. And it will be to late.
Guns aside, if you are worth a darn, a company will keep you unless you violate a zero-tolerance policy. If you aren't performing, that's a different story.
My company owned by an ILL. Company posted signs. I remove my handgun put it in the lock box. Do my business and when I leave the building and are in the parking lot I retrieve my gun reholster and go on and about my business. The car I use for business is mine I take no automobile compensation and I pay my own insurance. I will also say I used to go into the office 4-6 times per month now maybe once per month and if I can avoid that I will. I make about 2.6 million per year in profit for this company. If they want to tr y and fire me tough crap. I will be remployed within hours. Or maybe I will just sit back and take it easy. But they will have to make new policy to have good reason I follow the rules. I do leave my holster on I wear a vest so they will never know I have a holster on. Concealed means concealed.
