I am not allowed to carry a gun at work, I just deal with it because most places do not allow employees to be armed at work.
Respect the companies policies and deal with it

Once I became a gunowner I realized that I should not compromise my values for an easy dollar. Sorry but I am no Judas to the Bill of Rights.
Geez, dude, you're really beginning to creep me out.
I am not allowed to carry at work. I don't like it, but my job provides the majority of our family income, a multi-million dollar life insurance policy, retirement savings, and an enjoyable job. I travel by air constantly for my job. I am disarmed for that process. I had business in NYC this week. I couldn't carry there, even though I would have like to. If I am attacked and killed on the job, my wife will be worth millions. It's a calculated risk.
I suppose i could quit my well-paying job (my "easy money"), make bird houses and sell them in front of my single wide so I can always tote a loaded handgun in case I'm attacked.
Life is about managing your risks and priorities. My first priority is NOT the 2nd Amendment. If yours is, well, this is (was) America. Enjoy.
P.S. I think I've seen your house. It's the one with the iron bars over all the windows and doors, bright-as-day security lighting around the property, six snarling dogs behind the razor-wire topped fence, and your Glock flag flying from the pole.
But if you give me a couple of days, There is a young lady at the gun club that is a lawyer for Monroe County. I can ask her exactly what the rules are, but I probably won't see her til Wednesday night. Unless she is shooting the Firecracker tomorrow at the club
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I have a bunch of customers that are Military contractors, ITAR restricted and armed security guards.
If they ask on a form or verbally do not lie. If the form has multiple questions just omit answering the weapons question. If they catch be honest and disarm if required or ask if it is a problem.
Otherwise you have to be the judge and weigh the consequences.

A friend walks through the "metal detectors" at Blue cross regularly with his .38. There are no signs posted apparently so he took a chance....
To this whole thread. First : sorry i asked a question and then disappeared...i just figure out how to subscribe, I'm used to it automatically doing so when i post on other forums...
To all of the responders--thanks alot guys again this group is great.
I am a proffessional salesman if i don't sell to anyone who can buy from me, i am doing a bad job - or not professionally to put it another way--especially due to a personal choice.
Thanks for clarifying answering the question, i had it in my head that if a civilian asked - i was actually supposed to say no because i had a permit to keep it concealed and therefore hidden. That was not a situation i was looking forward to as i never lie, but thats why i think things through a head of time...
As for my job - I would never lose it, i am part owner and the majority owner is a major gun supporter - is buying the same holster is me after i showed him... But what is a sales firm without customers? Probably about as good as working in a super market.
The bottom line is I am just going to use common sense and not carry into areas that are either 1) my best VIP and Gold customers or 2) safe areas inside and out
If i said i wasn't going to sell to my best customer because they are medical and i don't want to take a chance without my gun-- My boss would say "no problem--ill just take over that account". Cool....
Except I just lost a $100,000 check every year... My wife would just shoot me when i got home
