    I am the supervisor for the company and I feel I should tell my boss . On the other hand , my friends tell me I shouldn't say anything unless ask ! What do you think ???
    IMO,
    I asked privatly and assured him that no would know but him and he agreed.
    Plus I told him I had beeen doing it for years but in the event something happened I wanted him to know.
    Allthough I am 45 plus and he knows I have a class III weapon and have enough common sense that he trusts me but thats in my case.

    NO. I thought about telling my wife I was gonna pick up another gun soon, then I remembered how the last one went. I'll pass.

    Your company has no policy that forbids it, so why bring it up. If you bring the subject up, you may find a new policy implemented prohibiting it. Then what are you going to do? To bring it up to your boss is asking for trouble in my opinion.

    What if you tell and they say that you can't carry and puts it into the company policy?

    You know your boss better than any of us, but consider this possibility: Maybe there is no company policy against CCW because nobody ever thought an employee would carry. It might just be possible that if you say something, the policy will be changed.

    Edit: I see I'm not the only one who thought of that :)

    Absolutely! Last three have been that way. The only real bad part about it for me is, I find I buy more blued finish pistols instead of the stainless like I'd rather have, so she wont notice the weapons by the finishes. That's gonna take a back seat though when I go for the .45 I'm looking at. She's a itty bitty thang, but what a set of lungs.

    If you do ask, you may rapidly find that there IS a policy about guns.

    Provided you are not violating any laws or company policies, don't say a word.

    Concealed means CONCEALED. And that means from everyone who does not have a need to know.

    In such a situation, my status of CHL is of no greater importance than the color of my socks. Irrelevant to the task at hand. But that's just me.

    It's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

    After the last new gun came out of the closet,

    She: "How long have you had that?"
    Proud new gun owner: "A long time!"
    She: "How much did THAT cost?"
    Proud new gun owner: "It was on sale."
