    I don't carry at work as it's on a Federal Government compound. It's in a bad neighborhood in North St. Louis and would be great to have with me, but no way. It's against the law and not worth losing my CCW forever - not to mention going to the poke with Leroy if caught. So no, don't do it and never will unless the law changes which it won't.

    Can't we have to pass through a metal detector to get into work and they have privet security at the entrapment area (oops I mean the main entrance).

    Sure I would, unless I had to go through metal detectors or something to get into work.

    Not an issue, though, since I'm self-employed.

    My rule is "All Employees Are Armed...No Gun, No Job"

    Of course, I'm the only one employee right now, but that could change.....

    I think I've made my choice.. See I work in a rather large factory where I've been attacked a few times already, but nothing more than a bruise(on me). Company policy is no weapons(knives even) on property. They supposedly submit to random security searches of your person(pockets, bags, etc.), but I've never seen one in 2 years I've been there. So my plan is to get something little that can be stuffed in a front pocket, not sure what though. Actually I saw a little semi auto, that has a pop up front on it to chamber a round that way(Much like a single shot shotgun) I think holds probably 5 rounds. Small enough to dissapear in a pocket no problemo. What the hell is this gun?

    Perhaps a Beretta Bobcat?

    Hmmm...I kinda surprised. In Michigan, the law states that there are several "gun free zones" (schools, daycares, college dorms, and the like) but that parking lots of said zones are specifically excluded. Michigan based its CCW law largely on Florida's, but you're saying you can't have it locked in the car?

    I have Carried when at work due to the areas I go to .It was against company policy to have a gun in a company truck . I collected large sums of money in bad areas. I know of several other employees who did the same. i

    Our office has a "no weapons" policy. However, three of us are former LEOs who have received special permission to carry. Prior to that I went to work one morning with my pistol on my belt, not even thinking I took off my jacket and exposed it. Not 15 seconds later my boss asked me if I were expecting trouble, with out missing a beat I said, "I certainly hope not.", put my jacket back on and took the gun out to my car. No one ever said anything about it again, until 9/11 when our company was looking to beef up security and decided that a covert internal security force would help do that without increasing costs. It's not something we talk about openly at work.

    My company has a 'no weapons policy' and prohibits them on the property (ghost-buster signs).

    I did talk to my VP boss about how stupid I thought the signs were, but to no avail.

    Needless to say, I don't carry at work.
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

    The company I work for also prohibits weapons even in the parking lot. This is my only livelyhood and I will never take that chance packing a gun or keep one inside my vehicle on company property or my family will go hungry. NEVER!

    The Bobcat is in .25ACP, but the Tomcat whish is similarly configured is in .32ACP. Both make good pocket guns. Using the right ammo you can load a Tomcat to almost .380 specs.

    Yeah it was probably the Tomcat, the bobcat did seem a little smaller than what I saw. .25acp isn't much stopping power, but at lesat a .32 would be a chance.

    I'd make sure not to ask what the policy is...

    Well where I work its pretty clearly posted as soon as you enter the employee parking lot that no weapons are allowed, big ass white sign directly opposite side of the drive as the handbags, briefcases, and packages subject to search(even though they never are)
