    Employee CCW policies of firearms related businesses?

    Does anyone know if the major firearms manufacturers in the US (Glock; S&W; Ruger; Sig; etc) allow employees to carry personal firearms when at work? What about companies such as Brownell's or Midway?

    I have no idea, and never thought about it before, but now that you brought it up, I'm interested.

    I'll call SigSauer today to find out, and post what I find.

    LOL, the calls these places must get.

    I have no idea about the OP's question though. I do doubt that they can out on the factory or warehouse floor.

    I just got off the phone with SigSauer CS, and they have a company policy AGAINST bringing ANY firearm into the facility.

    Interesting.

    Not surprising, it makes sense.

    It just seems to pose an interesting quandary for those who adamantly oppose patronizing any business which does not allow visitors or employees to carry firearms on the premises. Does this mean those folks will no longer purchase or carry Sig pistols?

    I didn't ask about visitors, that is only the policy for employees.

    I personally don't agree with it, however, it will not keep me from purchasing or carrying the Sig guns I love so much.

    Do you agree that is a bad idea to have ammunition present when cleaning your guns?

    Lets say you are at a range, and you and ten other guys are done and sitting at a large table cleaning you guns. Do you want a loaded gun introduced to the table? How about a loaded mag? Loose ammo?

    Sixto,
    My post was meant to be extremely tounge-in-cheek. As a firearms instructor, I never allow the above activity. The point of my original post was that private employers have reasons (and rights) to restrict the presence of loaded firearms...even those employers that are part of the firearms industry.

    Gonzo, I knew exactly where you were coming from.

    There is another reason I didn't mention, and and to think about if I even wanted to bring it up... Inventory Control. Could you imagine the security nightmare if employees carried Sigs in the Sig factory? That's a huge liability I wouldn't want.

    Dude, if I worked at Sig, I would wear baggy pants and a overcoat to work every day. They would end up having to establish an employee policy that permitted security to frisk me every day when I left work. Or maybe use one of those Full Body Scanners that TSA wants to get...

    I wouldn't carry a gun if I worked for them, I would how ever carry a topped off mag.

    I'm SURE I could find a home for it if required.

    Brilliant! Heck...carry a loaded P229 mag in one pocket; a loaded P220 mag in another; a P226 mag in your shirt pocket....

    Bingo! Well said.
