    I carried. Without a second's thought. My life was much more important than some ridiculous company policy that forbade me being protected in a gang area just so the company could make money off of them.

    Otherwise, if it were me, I would continue to document complaints to the parties you listed above, as well as their responses....and then carry against company policy using a deep concealment holster.
    This is exactly what i would do too. Your life and personal safety are worth more than any job is, and if they are unwillingly to accept your concerns about the lack of it at that location, then i would carry. This is one of those exceptions to the rule IMO about company policy and carrying. I would contiue to be proactive though and not become complacent once carrying a gun. Your job will be worth nothing if you're dead.

    With my employer, guns are prohibited anywhere on the premises, however I talked to my HR and showed her my permit and she said what's in my car is my business and do what i felt i should do, just dont tell anybody. Now this isnt carrying while working but i feel that much better that i do have a gun a hundred yards away in my car.

    I am also familiar with the area and the surroundings. I would carry against the policy and begin an active look for other employment possibilities.

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    Keep looking for another job, in the mean time do what you have to do for your safety. We have read many stories of delivery guys that went against company policy, had to defend themselves to save their lives and werre fired. You have to cover your arse.

    Good luck to you.

    I had to be in a lot of unsavory areas with my job before I retired and the policy was no guns allowed or you are fired! I decided that being a model employee and obeying all rules would be of little value engraved on my headstone! I did what I had to do and I suggest you do the same!! Be safe and good luck..SemperFi

    Anyone notice that the wimps that set "corporate policy" sit in an ivory tower in a pretty good part of town with armed security guards in the lobby?

    Deep concealment or bladed weapon. Document their disarming you in writing and make them inform you that way.

    Make them CONTINUE to update you on "improving" your safety!!!`

    Bladed weapon, collapsible baton, vest... or carry. I'm sure since the company is not letting you defend yourself, they'll assume liability for your safety on the premises. (Right.)

    Everybody here knows the slogan " Rather be tried by twelve than carried by six ", well in your case the jury is your employer. I dont advocate breaking the law, but we're all adults here and personal discrestion when it comes to safety IMO trumpths any rule.

    Wink Odd thing about vests...

    Odd thing is that excluding the trauma plate, a vest might not stop a knife. In my neck of the country, the punks are more apt to be carrying a blade than a gun. Might have something to do with the dominant cultures in our population. Cuban and Haitian are mostly fishing cultures for livelihoods. So many of our latinos feel naked without a blade. That's why you have to be on +P+ security level because some of these guys can hand you your liver before you know what's happening. Situational awareness isn't just important, it's everything!

    Personaly I wouldn't have asked and just started packing. That way if you got busted you could have at least played dumb. "oh I didn't see that in the handbook " When I did land survey I toted $10,000-$50,000 equipment through the hood and did what I had to do in the unsavory areas. My employer had a "don't ask don't tell" policy though. Ditto on the p-238.

    Which do you fear more: getting canned if caught with a concealed firearm or getting dead obeying the company rules? Either choice has a downside.

    Carry a .38 J frame or a small 9mm semi auto with a DeSantis Nemesis in your front pocket. Unless you tell someone, nobody will ever see it and you will have good insurance on your life. Jobs come and go, but you only get one life so make it a long healthy one...OK?

    Ditto on the Ruger LCP also.
