    I carry to work, but not so sure about leaving the whole gun in the car, so i'm thinking about just taking the bottom half and leaving the slide+barrel + mag inside my car. yay? nay?

    If you are allowed to carry at work, just do so. If not, I would recommend getting a gun safe for your car. They make small ones that you can put in your glove box, or secure under your seat (with cable and a lock).

    I don't see how this could be a problem for your employer, but I am interested to see what other people with more experience in this say.

    Good idea.

    Legally speaking, the firearm is the frame (with rare exceptions like the Ruger Mk II/III's), so it would be better to carry the slide into work if you're looking to split hairs. However, I doubt HR will be interested in your legal definition if your employer doesn't allow firearms and you'll be looking for work. IME, HR is not your friend and are not rational.

    To me, having a gun in pieces kind of defeats the purpose of carrying one. If it was me, I'd look at bolting in a small handgun vault somewhere through the floor of the car (backseat floor area?) with some sort of QD setup. Or make a strong anchor point to chain a vault to. This is a little big but I use this for home and transport Armloc II® Magnum Handgun Safety System Part# 11111 on Franzen International, Franzen Armloc II Pistol Case

    If you have a large truck or SUV, look at this Console Vault | Truck Safe

    Another thing I would consider is leaving a less expensive gun (locked up) in the car.

    That doesn't sound like a good idea. HR will almost definetly frown on even a dissassembled gun.

    and

    That is a lot of loading and unloading of the pistol which will mean you need to buy a lot of new defensive ammo for all the chambering that's going to happen. You keep chambering the same round and you will get bullet setback and eventually you will have your first kaboom.

    If I'm not mistaken, WI is a Right To Work state. If so they don't have to have a reason to let you go.

    I have chambered and unchambered a round every day for almost a year. All my defensive ammo is still in spec for total case length. Unless your gun has a bad feed ramp then you might have other issues to worry about.

    I agree w/rammerjammer.... worked @ Home Depot here in Colorado, heard of 2 people get fired for guns in their cars.
    check your company policy on possession of weapons; "Right to Work" states can/will find any reason.....

    I would suggest you ask your boss, not a bunch of internet gun guru's that don't actually sign your pay checks. Or, remember that concealed means concealed, and if you have a mechanism for locking it up if you can't carry, then lock it up.
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
