I have been CCW for about 6 years or so now and never thought to carry to work since i was in the feild. The second job my boss could care less if we carried but never wanted us to in certain areas such as the schools and the police station ect ect so it was hard to plan when a good day to carry was so I just never did. Ive been working at this new job for a few months know and to be honest I have carried a few times but at the same time I live where the newtown shootings occured and the weeks after alot of nut jobs seem to have come out and the thought of being on a jobsite unarmed just didnt make any sense when you hear about a guy running around with a rifle or gun down the street or something.
I recently picked up a Taurus tcp i have a pocket holster for it and is a nice carry gun. I also orders an inside the waste band custom holster that i might carry to work depending how it feels on me and how comfortable it is to work with
Yes, we can open carry. I don't think open carry has ever been restricted here. Concealed carry just makes more sense though. You can still get a concealed carry permit and it allows you to buy firearms without a background check and it is valid in some other states because of agreements between us. No permit needed in state though. Also, it keeps a cop from screwing someone over because their shirt fell over their firearm or if they are sitting in a car and it gets covered somehow. If you aren't committing a crime with it, who cares where it is (F***ing Liberals).

And it only takes one of those puppies for anything up to and including bears to make them re-assess their situation.
Smith & Wesson .380 Body Guard. The laser sight alone would make them turn & run. I'd rather have a gun & not need it, than to not have a gun & need it.
I used to carry one of three different ones, now no fire arms are allowed in the place I work so it has to stay in the truck. I was more inclined to have it on my for some of these sick dogs people have that will attack in a second right after the owner tells you that "fluffy" would never bite anyone!
44 SPC Charter Bull-Dog Pug 2" barrel in my tool bag. Felt like I needed to carry it in my hand on occasion. Thank you very muchy
