    How many here can and do carry at work?

    If this question, has been posted before, Admins please feel free to remove this thread. I was wondering how many here, LEO's aside of course, are able to carry at their place of work. I'm lucky enough, to work at a place that's pretty laid back and carry either in the office or out on the road, is a non-issue with anyone. (It doesn't hurt I work with quite a few conservative southerners.)

    I'm not allowed... So i don't, which means I have to pay attention to the terrain to gain every tactical advantage possible. I carry a mag lite and a "utility" blade that is 4.5 inches long.

    I carry at work all the time--but I work out of my own house so that's not really surprising. My work does involve a fair amount of air travel (usually at least once a week) so when I'm on the road I don't carry.

    I work at the University of Utah, so yes, I can (and do) carry at work.

    Yes... I work for a pro 2A company

    Of course... I'm the President and CEO and therefore set the rules

    I carry, and I certainly allow my employees to carry if they have a CHL. It's spelled out in my employee handbook.

    STI Escort,
    and others....

    I wish... It is kind of surprising given the environment of my employer and that I am in WV that it isn't permitted. We can't even have guns in our vehicles - unless we are going hunting after work and let them know...

    Sounds like you need to have nightly hunting trips (all canceled on account of rain/darkness/the tides/insert excuse here, naturally)

    I really hope one day I can work for a place that allows CCW, or at the very least somewhere that will let me keep it locked in my vehicle.
