New Job!! CCW allowed!!! yay!
Well I am going to do it. I have been working at a local pizza parlor for about 4 months and have been promoted to manager. I cant carry while on the job. This upset me and rather than quit and be jobless for a while, i chose to look for a job that better suits my talents and lets me carry. Easier said than done. I got word today that I am going to be working as a full time Bouncer\ Security for a large night club here. The owner of the club is a dj\rocker who has major connections in the music world and is gone alot on tour. His club is always packed and has had acts like 2live crew (rap), Gwar (metal) and others. The scene gets rough in a hurry down there.
After a long conversation with the owner, i get the feeling that while working there Im sure to see my fair share of action. He is allowing me to carry but only concealed. Which is fine with me. My DPSST certification will let me carry a baton, cuffs, spray, tac knife, tac light and strobe. I plan on packing these to work there. I also spoke with the head of security for the club and he said that they have a great relationship with LEO's and really do keep order. The LEO's in this small coastal town are few and far between so they are more than happy to let us handle the security our selves and call on them only when emergencies arise. The owner of the club said he would rather not have the police down there very often because it looks bad, so he said its up to us (me) to handle problems.
After leaving there I felt both excited and worried. to me it sounds like a few shady things have happend there with the security\troublemaker relationship. For now its really good money and I will keep my eye on the inner workings of the club. If it looks like its going to be something thats not going to 100% legit I will quit.
SO, with that said... Does anyone have any experiance being a bar bouncer and could share some with me. I have done this kind of work before but only on occasion and really diddnt learn the ropes.
All im pictureing in my head is ROAD HOUSE!
