    I used to do collections for a bank and started carrying after I almost got shot repossessing a car. The Court let her off as she claimed she thought I was a thief and I was on her property. The experience is burned into my brain I heard the first shot ring out and then strike the ground just to my right and my buddy Tim yelled “Gun”. I turned just in time to see a woman approximately 20 yards away fire her second shot from a .357 revolver that went whizzing over my head. At this point both Tim and I dove behind the truck we had come in and the remaining 4 shots rang out in succession she stopped we got in the truck and hauled ass out of there and called the police. Police arrested her we got the car and the case went to trial and went on for almost 6 months before they found her not guilty. It was the most frightening experience of my life. It was not long after that I got out of collections. I have been a pastor now for almost 6 years and I have been carrying now for about the past 8 months. I can’t remember if it was before or after the shootings in the springs that I started carrying everyday but it certainly increased my passion.

    I wish I could get by with carrying at work, but TSA gets upset with me carrying a pocket knife through the security check point (but its a tool so they can't stop me) i'm sure they would freak out with a gun.

    My #1 job is to be a good and protective father to my three wonderful daughters. In my mind, that requires me to responsibly use all means necessary to do my #1 job to the best of my ability. To me, safely owning and operating a gun is part of this job.

    One of the things I repair are ATM's. Sometimes that involves accessing the safe, to work on them. The employee handbook says "unlawful possession" of firearms is prohibited.

    It's not required, but I'm "lawful"

    former military, currently in bail enforcement. I feel naked if I don't have at least one pistol strapped somewhere on my body.

    Gun at work

    Main source of employment is selling windows and exterior doors for nationwide building supply in some, well not so pleasant parts of town, downtown Atlanta. Do light commercial as well and that takes me into hi-rise renovations and other "project" areas for HUD sales. Also a reserve deputy working with narcotics/vice division doing suspect sketches and identi-kit work with victims. Just carry the Beretta 96 with a Stoeger Cougar as a BUG. If it get nasty, the Mossberg 590 without a moment's hesitation. Watching Texas vs. UTEP, gotta go, have a good weekend. HOOK 'EM HORNS!!!

    duty weapon

    I have carried a handgun, usually a .45 ACP, since the 1990's for several corporations and private security companies. I presently work as an armed S/O for a Seattle based company that provides armed security for Arapahoe County court services here in Colorado. Like many of you, I would feel very strange, if I was not armed in these instances. I presently am carrying a Colt Lightweight Commander in .38 Super with all the accuracy enhancements money will buy.

    this was dug up from the dead but I figured I'd respond. I am a corrections officer. therefore where I work carrying is highly illegal, does not mean I don't have a small arsenal at home for home defense.

    Being military the only time I carry at work is when I'm in some God forsaken s--t hole of a 3rd world country, where there are people trying to kill me. Which I never understoud becouse there are places here they want to do the same thing. And besides if I carry to work even leaving it a car it is a Felony
