I am the Internet Sales Manager for a fairly large Honda dealership in the Baltimore area.

I carry a Benchmade 710.

Maryland has very strict anti-CCW laws here. Even though we just had a MAJOR shift for the Demo's to the Republicans, I dont think that this will change anytime soon. So, for me to carry my Kimber Pro Carry probably wont happen.

I just heard from a "reliable police source" that the mayor of your fine city just appointed some of his cronies to ranking positions in your P.D. :eek:

Retired L.E. I don`t live in the state I worked and I carry anything I want.:cool:

I am presently "employment challenged" :rolleyes: (the politically correct term that is used instead of 'unemployed' or 'laid off') but when I was working, I was a technical manager with AT&T for 18 years (anybody know of any openings :D ) and I carried based on my mode of dress ... Para C6.45LDA, C7.45LDA, Taurus 85, 850, S&W 640, 342, 3913TSW, NAA Guardian.

After a year and a half of unemployment, I am now Parts Manager for the US importer of MZ motorcycles and scooters! See them at http://www.motorradna.com .

When I started work they gave me a list of their workplace rules. No drugs, no alcohol, and a few other restrictions, but not one word about weapons. Since my CCW permit allows me to carry anywhere not restricted either by law or posted wishes of the owner, the Kel-Tec P32 goes to work with me. My Ruger P95 would be an encumbrance with all the moving around I do messing with stuff in the warehouse.

I'm a graphic designer - I work at one office designing ads for several parenting/educational publications and I'm the art director of a healthcare publication (not as boring as it sounds), and I work at home designing S.W.A.T. (http://www.swatmag.com) Magazine. At the office I *believe* I'm the only one carrying (a USPc in .45 right now, but other times a Taurus 617 - and a NAA Mini as a BUG). The boss there is completely cool with me carrying, though he sometimes jokes about me being his personal bodyguard. :rolleyes: At S.W.A.T.,I assume most everybody on the staff carries. :cool:

I am an Inside Sales employee for a manufacturing facility that is one piece of a huge ($400 million) company owned by a bigger ($40 billion) a year company.

While the management at my facility is gun friendly (some have carry permits), the company policy is no guns. I usually carry one in the car on my way to & from work, but don't risk carry in the building, even with understanding management. There are antis where I work, & if one would spot a gun on me could take it up to corporate & cost me my job.

That said, I usually carry a Makarov in the car to & from work, & also have a Fobus paddle with me if I am going somewhere between home & work & want to strap it on.

For other times, I have an Ultra CDP, a Colt Mustang, & a Taurus PT-940 that are pressed into service depending on what I am wearing, where I am going, how I am getting there, etc.

Well, since I work for the Department of Defence(Navy actually) I am not actually allowed the right of Self-Defence at work, so I only get to carry when I am not at work...kind of bummer.

When I do carry, It's a full size H&K USP in .40 S&W...but I am in the market for a P-11, so I can carry during the summer also.

I'm a college student, and since i'm not 21(as of today, I've exactly a year to go), I carry a benchmade AFCK, a surefire 6P, a giant wad of keys, and a Backpack full of books (which is both a dandy shield and a decent impact weapon). there's some signs stating that the college is a "gun free" zone, but that doesn't apply to CCW holders.

i'm a paper pushing pansy for the insurance industry.
ten of my thirteen coworkers are moody, irrational, aggressive, hateful, angry, and ticking time bombs for at least 5 days each month.
i carry a s&w HRT and a steyr m9, for both my protection against my coworkers and for everyones protection against irate insureds who demand settlements.

seriously, we had one "grieving" father storm into our office and demand payment after his child died in a fire while both mommy and daddy were getting drunk at a bar. sadly, the building the family lived in as caretakers of a seasonal hotel was NOT covered by the insureds policy. they omitted it to save money.
it was obviously not covered, but after a court battle for a few years the insurance company settled just to be done with it. think they sent a check for $750,000 IIRC. i hope those lawyers gouged the irresponsible parents for as much as possible. stinking lowlifes. oh yeah, and the boss gets all nervous now whenever insureds come to our office upset because their insurance costs so much, or are looking to have a claim paid off immediately. my cubicle is at the far end of the office so if trouble comes, its going to visit the anti-gun boss first, giving me plenty of time to respond. :D

I'm a field systems engineer for a big cable company and ISP. My job often takes me across the river into the PRNJ (barf), and aside from that CCW is against company policy, so I almost never carry on the job.

However, if I'm on call and get dispatched to one of the nastier parts of Philly, I bring my Makarov. Luckily, my boss is a libertarian gunnut and has asked me, "You're carrying, right?" on a couple of those jobs. ;)

I work for a large bank, in an office building with no cash transactions occuring onsite. Still, I occasionally must give less-than-welcomed news to folks who understandably don't take it very well. In other words, I take abuse for a living. :banghead:

My Spyderco Endura II goes with me everywhere. I'm still debating which gun and what carry method to use on a daily basis while working. I've tried a few different things and while it's been invisible to anyone around me, I'm not 100% satisfied yet and think that I can do better. My Taurus 617 and Kel-Tec P-11 are currently tied for which gun is best. I want something bigger than .32auto or .380, so I think I'll be picking up a Makarov or CZ-83 in 9x18Mak or both soon. I'll keep fine-tuning things til I'm satisfied. Suggestions are welcomed.

Operations Manager for an automotive supplier company. Company rules strictly prohibit weapons at work. Boss is not a gun person, and considers knives over 2" - 3" as "potentially" a weapon. Having said that, I always have a knife of some kind on me. Usually a lockblade from a reputable company (Spyderco, Cold Steel, Kershaw to name a few) in the 2 1/2" - 3" range despite what the boss says.

Outside of work, a Kimber Compact CDP usually in a Fobus Roto-holster or a Milt Sparks #60 TK on a Sparks belt.

I used to carry my old duty weapon (Glock 19) but sold it to my father in law and want to get a 36, which I plan to do in about 2 months. Right now I carry a Kel-Tec P11 (with a belt clip and mag foot) or my Taurus PT-908, both with +P Hydra-Shoks

Prison chaplain. Due to being locked in with over 1,500 maximum-security inmates, who have morals and ethical standards that would gag a maggot, and are highly volatile and dangerous, we're not allowed to carry weapons of any kind, for fear that the inmates might take them off us. If you think this leaves us vulnerable, you're dead right!!! :mad: Off duty, I carry Glocks of one or other description, or revolvers if I'm in the mood for one that day.

School teacher and military reservist. No weapons allowed on school campuses, though we get a few from the students every year. School is in a very economically and culturally deprived area, and we have the city police on campus often. Am current and qualified with M16 and M9 (Beretta 9mm) and have concealed weapons permit from AF when on duty on certain missions -- I would rather carry my Sig 239 than the M9.
Away from work, the Glock 27 is on the ccw. Next yr, I'm considering the Sig 239 and my Colt DS to be on my permit. When traveling to Bay Area, I'm ususally legally armed, sober and, as someone said, not dangerous.

Part time I work for a demolition and clean-out company frequently clearing out Section 8 housing. After a run in with some local "businessmen" who were "unaware" of their moving sale I decided it's time to get my CCW. The it'll be CZ-75 all the way. On the downside I also resdie in PRMd so getting the daggom thing is taking a bit of time.

That being said, I'm at work now with my Taurus PT945 .45 ACP in a Galco scout clip holster. Dress for the off shift is much more relaxed, so concealment is easy with my loose untucked flannel shirt. Many times I go with my Kahr K9, because that hides easily under an untucked t-shirt. On the very occasional times I'm on 1st shift, it's the K9 in a Smartcarry holster under my Dockers and tucked in shirt.

Well, I have worked for the USPS (Ungrateful, Stupid Postal Service) as a mail carrier for 22 years now. NO WEAPONS ALLOWED in the building or parking lot. I live in Ohio, where, again, NO CCW.

Now with that said, I am always armed with something. I have the best defensive weapon you could ever have - a brain - which hopefully will allow me to recognize any possible threat before things get ugly. Failing that, I am always carrying a knife of some kind or another.

Yes, I walk into the schools an my mail route with a 'prohibited' knife on my person. My sentiment is that it is too freaking bad. I have a 3-1/2" folder in a sheath on my belt and probably another in my left front pocket. They are tools I use daily on the job, to cut open the bundles of junk mail that I get to fill your mailbox with on a daily basis. I have informed the school secretaries that I am always carrying a knife, and the reason why. They don't seem to have a problem with it. So much for 'zero tolerance' policies, eh?

If we ever do get CCW here in Ohio, I'll probably just stick with the stainless 3" Taurus 85, making no apologies for carrying 'just' a five-shot .38 snub. I may or may not have carried it in the past when travelling to or through bad areas. I can't remember.

I am currently a substitute teacher (general elementary or special ed through middle school). I hope to get a job as a special ed teacher (not certified yet but worth a try) next year and I'll be starting a MA in special ed either next month or next summer. I also deliver pizza a few nights a week but I'm about to drop that (can't stand it and not too safe).

I live in MD so I can't carry a gun. When I leave MD or if MD goes CCW I will probably usually carry my S&W 65LS with my Bersa in backup (I may get a Kahr K or P 9 if there are any still around here in about 2 months in which case it may replace the Bersa). When I'm in an auto mood it will be a 1911 of some sort (right now I have a Charles Daly, hope to get a SA Loaded this year), my CZ 40B, a CZ PCR or P01 (if I move, can't bring them into MD anymore), and occasionally my CZ 75B and any of them would be backed up by a Taurus 85 or S&W 36 or 60 (I need the .38spl snub). If I would be to carry on those occasions where the situation calls for ignoring the law (i.e. needing to enter a particular bad neighborhood, delivering pizza on New Years Eve- which I didn't BTW, etc) I would probably have my Bersa.

Right now my only carry is a Kershaw 3" assisted folding knife (I'm not sure if the mechanism is modified or if it is the size of the blade that causes it to not qualify under the law as a banned switchblade) on my strong side and pepper spray on my weak side. I'm considering buying a knife with a longer blade for this time of year when people are wearing thicker clothing (it would allow for more tactical options).

I'm one of those evil nuclear security ninjas that won't let the rest of you carry at the nuclear power plants. Issued S&W 40s and AR-15s at work. I carry a Springfield 45 and/or a Kel-Tec P32 at other times.

I'm a Machinist,Tool and Die Maker. I'm in business designing and building tooling for the plastics industry. Mostly molds for plastics injection molding equiptment. I don't carry in the shop but I keep a replica 1875 Remington revolver in .45 Colt in my desk drawer. For CCW I carry a full size series 70 Colt in .45ACP and sometimes a S&W Model 36 Chiefs Special in .38 Special. For open carry when I'm out in the boonies I carry a Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt in a buscadero rig.
