Just be wary of your companies policy, and don't advertise to your co-workers that you are armed.

Is Target anti CCW? The ones around here aren't posted, but I do notice that the security guard is not armed. :twak:

i would ask for a employee handbook and see if there is anything in there before i said anything to anybody at work. i asked our HR department for an employee handbook and they told me they don't publish it but if i have a question just ask and they would give me an answer. i chose not to ask my question with them at that time. i took it as they don't want us to know what the policies are unless we ask them the question so they can monitor who's asking what for profiling purposes. i may just be over thinking this.

I worked there for like 2 days, and I'm pretty sure at orientation I saw that there was a policy against carrying guns to work. So just don't get caught or you will probably be fired.

When I worked in asset protection there they had a zero tolerance policy for weapons of any sort. The amount of bologna I had to read and sign before they'd even give me handcuffs was ridiculous.

Ask in an email, then quickly print out the reply before it's deleted.

This will create a paper trail.

Target is against team members carrying firearms.

My Target is not posted and I live in an Open Carry state... (WI)

Sounds like a no brainer for CC at Target. Anyway, I like to shop at Target because they seem to hire a lot of attractive gals.

I work Assets Protection for Target. It says no weapons for team members in the handbook. Guests, who cares, I would and have told people who complain about someone having a firearm that its legal and there's nothing I can do about it. (Colorado is an open carry state)

Just don't get caught, you will be termed without warning. You're not even supposed to have it in your car. We don't search people's cars, but we look for valuables in plain view that someone would steal out of a car since we've had a couple vehicle break-ins at my store.

Choose your evil.

CC and IF you get caught, loose your job.

CC and IF something does happen you will be alive.

Don't CC, don't worry about losing your job, keep your SA, and IF something happens, stay low and vacate the area.

That seems a little unsafe to me. Having handcuffs imples the ability to arrest, or at least detain (depending on state law). Given the general hazards of taking someone into custody, I wouldn't want to do it unarmed. I know, its not supposed to make sense, its policy.

I worked in LP at Best Buy for a while as a part-time job. We didn't even have handcuffs, but at the same time we were not allowed by policy to use any sort of physical force to detain anyone. I figure that policy makes more sense than providing handcuffs but not the tools necessary to effect an arrest. FWIW, I didn't carry in the store when I worked for Best Buy. I was a full-time probation officer and reserve police officer at the time, but due to some quirks in the law and the store policy, I chose not to carry. I did keep a handgun locked in a car safe in my vehicle, but technically the parking lot was not owned by the store. If it had been, I still would have been in violation of their policy.

False, but any joke at the French's expense is still funny.

doesn't sound like over thinking to me. it's as if by the very act of asking them you are in essence admitting to it, or that's what you're assuming they will interpret. so, in the end it's best to keep quiet until you can get a written publication.

remember... you're not paranoid if they're really after you.
