    Got made at work.

    So this morning at work while changing back into my street clothes it happened. My shirt rode up while sitting on a bench to tie my boots. A coworker said " dude you carry 2 guns " ? I replied " I don't know what your talking about "as I pulled my shirt down. He then said " I know what a holster is and you have 2 of them ". I carry a IWB and a SOB. I replied " I still don't know what your talking about " and left for home. No firearms just holsters.

    It happens, and you really cant do anything about it, if you just had holsters and work had a no gun policy well then u are good. Otherwise chalk it up as a learning lesson.

    Is a firearm required for your job?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is carrying allowed where you work, if so, it's no big deal, so someone now knows you carry 2 guns. If carrying is not allowed, by company policy, then you need to take steps to insure your better concealed. If it is not allowed by law, then you need to ditch the guns when at work.

    One person in Wisconsin to another. You know full well if you get caught with it anywhere but locked in your car on company property you will be looking for a new job and in court.
    We worked hard to get right to keep your fire arm in you car in company parking lot. That was a long fight. Even now there are employers trying to change that part of the law .
    Be careful how far you push it. This is Wisconsin.

    If you are having troubles concealing empty holsters, you must find keeping the guns hidden even more difficult. Longer shirts?

    Exactly. That's why said holsters not firearms.

    I will bet that as you made your way home, he made his way to your supervisor to voice his concern.
    good luck with this one

    At the very least I'd bet he has told others in the work place about it. The conclusion of many will be that you carry a weapon while working. Afterall why else would you be wearing a holster? Thats just how the human mind works.
    Treat your holster like it has a weapon in it at all times. This is one rumor that could end up getting you fired. While you may not be fired for actually carrying a weapon. The rumors might give them cause to look for other reasons to get rid of you.
