    I don't think the pay would equate to that of any IT position or a chiropractor.

    Well, it's really a decision only you can make.

    There's a saying that goes "it's easier to find forgiveness than to get permission". If there's no mention of a "no weapons" policy then I wouldn't ask about one.

    If they do cover a "no weapons" policy as part of their hiring, you're gonna have to decide what you're willing to do, and as several threads about that subject here have proved, there's about 1 bazillion opinions!

    Personally, if I sign an agreement saying I will abide by a companies policy, my word is my bond. I do not believe in "situational ethics".

    If I simply can't deal with their rules then it's time for me to find another job. But as you've discovered, good jobs are darn hard to find. But then if you were to open your own business... you get to make the rules!

    So count the cost bro and best of luck to you.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    "A superior Operator is best defined as someone who uses his superior
    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    Personally, I don't understand this. You state how hard it is finding a job, and then you would do something that would jeopardize your job on your first day. There is a big difference working for a place for 10 years and asking for forgiveness, versus working for a place 1 day and asking for forgiveness. I can almost guarantee you that being made the first day on the job will most likely get you can'd real fast, as no one would go to bat for the new guy. If you firmly believe that you want to carry and do not know the rules, I would strongly suggest you ask them their policy first, or just not carry inside the work place until you know more.

    Yeah, carry unless they have magnetometer or wand or some other silly stupid stuff like that.

    Concealed is concealed until you are given information that says it is against company policy I would carry but do get a copy of the company's regs asap. Than you may need to decide how important that job is to you.

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
