    I do. I had one problem about 1.5 years ago. No problems since. One anti caught me because I managed to let my shirt ride up while working under a machine. She threw a hissy fit to management and they asked me to not bring it again. I told them that my life was more important than my job so I'm quiting. They told me I didn't need to go that far. Hasn't been a problem since. I think about 3/4ths of the office suspect I still carry...including my direct boss. No issues yet.

    I find it funny though, that I'm the first one my boss, HR, and everyone else comes running to to make sure the building is secure when they're about to can someone that they think might go nuts.

    I'm semi-retired and work part time in a hardware store and carry every day....no problems, Indiana is pro-gun so we don't often have problems. I was made once by a co-worker as I was reaching up to a top shelf and my shirt rode up to expose the holster/gun....no biggie.

    I do carry everyday at work. I use a smart carry holster - so with my loose scrubs no one ever notices. I have not encountered any problems yet, infact, I sometimes forget that I am packing. I do work in a busy trauma center hospital
    and at times do get extremely busy. No one knows I carry and I like it that way.

    I work for the family business so trouble with management isn't a problem. I carry a 4" 1911 in a Crossbreed Supertuck. I tuck two shirts over the holster and never have a problem coming untucked. I am in and out of peoples homes every day and they are non the wiser.

    I have carried for about 7 years - out side of work. Mostly glock 19 or 1911 in Milt Sparks VM2.
    But since I move around alot at work , I would take it off, and put it back on after work.

    That got pretty old ...
    a few weeks ago I bough a Kahr PM9 and a Comptac IWB and its been on me 24/7. It really conceals very well.

    I carry everyday that I work. I work I rough parts of the city and I would not be without it. The owner of the company is ok with it. In fact I have talked him into getting one himself. He jst bought a safe and is working on what firearm he wants.

    I've carried every day since getting my lifetime license. Officially there's a company policy against it. Like packinnova my life is more important than my job.

    As the network admin, locked in a server room most the day, I doubt anyone will notice anytime soon.

    That's always suprised me that military personnel don't at least carry a sidearm on base.

    I am able to carry either open or concealed at work. The majority of the time I just carry concealed OWB.
