    I live in the great state of Texas. I CC but at my work it is against policy and with Texas being a no-fault state I can be fired for any and all reasons. I'll admit I have but am always worried I will "literally" bump into the wrong person and be outed. How many of you guys carry while disregarding employment policy?

    Likewise... That and I work for a defense contractor and I am randomly asked to go on Gvt property quite regularly, can't even leave my gun in the car: no guns on Gvt property.

    I'm not legally allowed to have a gun on the property where I work.

    A lot of the guys where I work carry, including the managers and the general manager, even though it's in the employee handbook that it isn't allowed.

    Smartcarry is my friend.

    It would be a federal offence where I work, but we have many armed guards and very restricted access controls.

    Otherwise, I carry where legal and do not frequent gun free zones (killing fields).

    I've been thinking about it, seeing as how the unarmed guards in the lobby of my building don't exactly instill a feeling of "security", especially when I see them sleeping at 5 in the am when I'm leaving.

    It is against policy, but no 30.06. The only thing stopping me from trying it out is I need the proper gear to fit the dress code.

    Not against policy for my current employer. Didn't have a CHL at my former employer, but I imagine they had a policy against it.

    I'm always amazed by how many people will not carry where they work due to policy, but have no problem carrying at a business that puts up no firearms signs. They will respect the rights and policies of their employers, but claim the business they want to frequent would be denying them their constitutional rights to protect themselves.

    Not saying any people in this thread are that way, but I know many on this forum are. Hypocrites.

    Because those business' they frequent aren't paying their paychecks, or providing their medical insurance.

    Back in my courier days I carried everywhere and into places that had a no weapons policy in force. Currently for me it is against state and employer laws to carry where I work so not at this time under any circumstances.

    Guard shack with metal detectors while entering and exiting my work, a sign that reads "_________ bans firearms on these premises" is posted on the guard shack as well. Not a chance...

    We have a no gun policy. Nothing posted on the doors however. I carry everyday, I walk to my toolbox, release the mag. unchamber the bullet and lock my gun in my box promptly. I'm sure my General Managers knows I'm packing. Its kinda like Don't ask don't tell
