    Got asked point blank if I have a concealed carry permit

    Sometimes I think I should just keep my mouth shut.

    I had a meeting with my manager Monday. In passing he asked how my weekend was. Well, that weekend I took a "Street and Vehicle Tactics" class and I started gushing about how much fun it was, what we did, blah, blah, blah.

    I think it was more out of curiosity, because we have a lot of ex-military in our company, but he asks me outright if I have my concealed carry permit. I sort of deflected it by saying that shooting and self defense is just a fun sport.

    He never pushed it, and we proceeded to have our meeting.

    I find honesty is often the best medicine. No need to hide what is legal.

    You guys were talking about shooting, asking you if you had a permit wasnt that odd of a question was it?

    Hmmm. Does your company prohibit cc on company property?

    I think I would have told him that I did. May have been one of those chances to win someone over to the good guy side.

    I agree with echo, if you were talking guns and he asked maybe he's the next one to go take a class and you could have each others back...ps how was the streets and tacics class?

    Considering that my boss is also a close friend, and was one of my character references on my original application, I don't have worry about him finding out.

    If that were not the situation, I would not bring up the subject of shooting, or training. Not because it is "secret" or something of which I am ashamed, but, rather, I simply would not want to complicate the working relationship. There are too many variables in an employer/employee relationship to want to add another. For example, I do not discuss the subject with my staff. The concept of "need to know"comes to mind, here.

    I think you should of just told him. Maybe he was asking because he wanted to get his?

    It was a perfectly reasonable question, given the subject of the discussion and the abundance of information already offered up.

    I think you did the right thing in trying not to answer. I told my boss that I got my permit and the next week all our buildings were posted. Might have been a coincident...............

    In Texas your CHL is linked to your drivers license. I don't know for sure if it shows up during an employment background check, but if it does, the boss already knows.

    My boss strongly suggests that I carry at work. But then again, I work at a gun club as a RSO

    I am with RoadRunner on this one. I wouldn't have brought up the weapons training class knowing a logical follow up question would be whether or not I have a carry permit.
