.......... and your point being........... ?

Is it on company time? Is the company paying for it? What makes this a good deal? I'm not saying it isn't but if those two things aren't true then I don't understand your thread. It's just a trip to the range with co-workers. We did it all the time but our company had nothing to do with it.

More tidbits?

My company had an indoor shooting range! Beat that! (We we not in the gun business either).

Thanx, Russ

Wow, way to rain on the parade there...

Anyways, it should be a good time with your co-workers. Just keep in mind if there are not other experienced shooters there, you will end up playing the role of RO and pseudo-instructor. Could be fun or a drag depending on what you are looking to do while you're there.

Previous employer not only had a trap/skeet range at one facility, at two others folks could bring their deer rifles and sit in the towers and snipe in season and take deer - company freezers were always full of meat or fish from the cooling tower ponds

The point of his thread is he works in a place where he can share some of his interests with his co-workers, instead of having to hide it like many of us are forced to.

Who cares if it's paid for by the company or on their time? Fellowship with co-workers can be a damn fine thing, and make the work place a much nicer place to be, you know.

I don't know, some of the jerks -- <Sam> I work with make me happy that it's a trucking company and I work out of town (and away from the shop) all week. I rarely see my co-workers. And I thank God for that small favor.

But we have our quarterly safety meetings at a Gander Mountain.

MinnMooney - It is being organized by the management. No, we don't get paid to do it, but it is a team building exercise. Since it is invitation only, it will only be our team (all of our coworkers and nobody else). While it isn't a company paid for event, it only will happen because of management.

You missed the key word. We HAD an indoor range, safety, liability and a company move killed the range but it served for 4 or 5 decades.

Thanx, Russ

That is very cool.. My employer is a gov't entity and VERY not gun friendly...

You are offically envied.

Every single one of us at my work carry.

And we're not a gun store. Gotta love small business.

Russ - I'm pretty sure TeamPrecision was referring to MinnMooney's post above yours. :)

I love my job too. We made a range trip last week, and thankfully the company provided the ammo ;)

Can't carry at work

Do they have metal detectors and mind reading devices?

Otherwise just conceal really well.

Sounds like fun...

My company used to put up $10k a year to be the title sponsor of a sporting clays tournament for a group of our customers in the middle part of the state. We had a four man "company team", and I was able to work my way on all but one of the years I knew about it... I was pleased considering there are 700+ people at our facility and I got to play two or three times. Didn't have to take vacation, ammo/lunch/dinner was free... I'm not much of a clay shooter, but sign me up.

Then the economy tanked and we cut that as well as plenty of other fun-related spending.

Definitely not a government employee.

thor- getting outed at work wouldn't just mean getting fired. I wouldn't be able to get another contracting job (IT) that pays within 40k of what I am making now. I have a child, so an almost halving of the household income isn't an option. I'll leave it in the car IF I decide to carry. Right now, I could care less if I carry or not, location not at issue. While you're at it, show me how to conceal in business casual where an ankle holster may be exposed as I crawl around under a desk. Standards : khakis, collared shirt tucked in, belt, dress shoes. No suspicious bulges while arms are lifted over head, lying down, bending over, or wrapped around the legs of office furniture. My shirts frequently become untucked due to the range of motion I use in the performance of my job. Oh, cloths must fit and not be baggy. No bags to carry around either as I need both hands free.

Where I last worked, the only "gun fun" I had was showing pictures of my latest acquisitions to the woman next to me. It was entertaining to hear her gasp and watch her and tremble.
