    Interesting topic. In a "past life" I was a pharmacist, worked my way thru med school doing pharmacy on weekends ( as well as help from the navy). At closing one Sunday, a guy was acting really strange. I asked him to leave. He came back next morning with a gun , stole quite a few drugs and pistol whipped the pharmacist. A few years later, as MD I got called to the ER late one night. Met 8-10 fine young gentlemen near the door. Wanted to know ... Hey man, you a docta? Said my wife was having a baby and really needed to go, and they let me. Took my NRA course a week later, then ccw. Never looked back

    The medical profession is just like any other. It is not as anti gun as some news stories might lead one to believe. My doc is a Beretta guy. My son's is a Springfield Armory fan. Down here in Texas they are much more open about it than they were back in Maryland.

    This Rph just picked up a LC9 yesterday with the intent to CCW. If I think like a criminal, the pharmacy I work at is a prime target hence my concern. I feel its not a matter of if but when. They can have the drugs but if things go sideways I hope I can defend myself and staff.

    I just found out this morning the my wife's manager carries and even wears his CCW permit on a tether around his neck under his shirt. She is in medical sales.

    I have been a pharmacist for about 10 years now. I have been robbed 6 times during that period. My current employer like most employers does not allow firearms at work. So there are a lot of pharmacist like me who secretly carry at work. knowing if anybody found out we'd loose our jobs on the spot. when i got my cwp i went with a few other people at work. so i know at least 3 of us maybe armed at any given time.

    What a shame that your employer trusts you with the heavily controlled inventory, but can't trust you to defend yourself in the event something goes sideways.
    I can't say much though. As an electrical engineer whose daily driver is a desk, I am also not allowed to carry at work. If my mouse ever goes rampant, I am screwed.

    I was a partner in a company that installed and maintained telephone systems, our techs traveled the whole state, often out late, in city industrial areas etc. I encouraged them to get CCWs and carry, our lawyer advised against it because the injury or death of an employee would be covered by workman's comp and our liability would be minimal; if they shot someone, even if justified, we could be exposed to million dollar plus liabilities (pre stand your ground days). In short a dead employee is cheaper than a wounded criminal.

    Great interaction with the guy, it's nice to know there are other level heads out there.
    Every since I started carrying I can't go into a public place without looking to see if I can spot another packer.

    LOL. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    I have a very close family member who is a Doctor of Optometry. Recently took a CCW class and is applying for his permit. He has a nice collection.

    Yeah, so do I. I figure it's pretty common practice. It's like buying a new car and then you start looking around for others like it. All of a sudden you notice so many more on the road than you ever knew existed.
