    Even after that, I'd still keep it in my car out of view. What's he going to do, look thru your car?

    It seems he was nice enough to sit and speak with you about this. He said he could not police everyones car. Do him the courtesy of not carrying on premises until you get a lock box installed in your truck.

    Install the box under the seat. Paint it black. Put a decal on it that says Sony. Anybody asks, tell them its a 10 disc CD changer. Why does it have a key? To keep it from being stolen.

    Do not open when asked. Do not let anyone see you removing or putting away your weapon. Never tell.

    I have a new job and during the day, I use a company car.

    I cleaned out the car when it became "mine". The previous two people who used it are the company owner and one of the managers.

    I found a box of .45 ammo in the glove box, a few loose rounds rolling around in the trunk, some targets and some empty brass.

    Now ask me if I told the boss that I carry.

    NO, not just NO but ... well you get the idea.

    And as far as the clause of "authorized" you are, by the state (CCW permit), by the Constitution (2A) and by common sense / law of self preservation.

    What they don't know can't be used against me. Or at a minimum I have plausible deniability should anyone happen to catch me printing or something.

    Don't ask permission, don't tell your status. It really is NONE of their business. IMHO.

    I would park off property id you can do so in an area where you you feel comfortable. If not i agree your personal protection is your 2a right and nobody can take that away.

    A quick question how long did it take you to receive your CPL from the state of Michigan?

    Good luck

    I got mine in 74 days last year before the Obama scare.

    Go to the Wayne county satellite office on Henry Ruff just south of Michigan Ave to apply for your CPL. you are in and out in 15 minutes.

    If you apply or already have applied, you can go to the Michigan Gun Owners site and there is someone on the Wayne county board that can tell you aprox. when you will get your CPL.

    Go here to see if you are approved.

    When I faced this situation I bolted this to the floor of my truck and parked off company property.

    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    This is how it works in Missouri!

    This may not be true in every state so do your homework!
    This is some interesting reading regarding workplace rules. As you can see this was more directed to the "employers" than employees, so you never know. Things may change, but right now I am safe to carry to the work place.

    Does your company do searches on your car, a company i worked for did that and i wasnt even allowed to have a pocket knife, if they do searches then i would just park somewhere besides the work grounds, i think that is dumb though because in Georgia your car is considered an extension of you home.

    To expand on Grady's reply, Bumper is the owner and administrator of DefensiveCarry.com.

    You would have received a welcome PM (Private Message) from him when you registered on the site.

    Only reading to the 4th page, I would agree with the rest about parking offsite.

    It really makes me appreciatave of the company I work for.

    The owner of our company is a HUGE gun aficionado and has an AK-47 and AR-15 in his office. Although we do have the NO WEAPONS stickers for 'legal' reasons, there are a couple of guys in our ciricle that he says for us to carry -- in the event someone gets fired and comes back for some payback -- there are about 4 of us dotted throughout a company of 150 that will be ready to handle any issue that may arise.

    Sorry to hear about what happened when you were trying to be honest

    Park offsite. Being from Michigan, I would think a job swap might be harder to do than said
