    Pharmacy Robberies

    It seems this is becoming an epidemic and people under the influence,and or going thru withdrawal will do just about anything to get a "FIX".I would recommend that when going into a drug store you be armed where legal and observe the inside of the store before just walking in.

    It is wise to keep your head on a swivel when you go ANYWHERE. Yes, dirtbags are all over the place, and one can never assume compliance will pay off.
    Stay armed...stay alert...stay safe!

    I would only work on a pharmacy that would allow me to work armed. sort of like the gunshops - most of the clerks are armed.

    Absolutely. Look around when you go to a Pharmacy next time, a prety good collection of 'interesting' people in line.

    I get nervous every time I go to the pharmacy. The ones in my town are not all that secure by any means.

    In my mind there are two types of business establishments:

    - unknown risk
    - high risk (banks, pharmacies, check cashing stores, liquor stores and 7-11s after 2000...you get the point)

    My wife is a pharmacy intern, she'll be graduated with a Pharm. D. this time next year. She sent in paperwork for her CWL a couple weeks ago and we've been adjusting her holster for the best fit and concealment. Yesterday we made a return to Macy's of a wedding gift. While there I bought a new wallet and we picked out a couple new cover garments for her. She can't wait to start carrying.

    I always thought my life was more valuable than my job when it came to company (not State law) anti-gun policies.

    Retired after almost 40 years as a pharmacist. Concealed means CONCEALED!!!!!!!
