Those of us that work in more PC places have to be a little more discreet. One is the Kahr logo bubba blitz( a puppy), the other is the Beretta logo (an italian symbol for straight shooter) both have identifying marks removed.

I really like the Kahr one. That's a nice way to have it both ways -- you get something gun-related without freaking out coworkers.

That's the idea, great for people in education or government jobs.

Wow, I didn't know the Kahr mascot was so cute. ;-)

Heck I work at a state university. The brownells and natchez catalogs, as well as the various issues of front sight and american rifleman usually tip folks off.

Made a handful of new shooters at work after taking a bunch of my co-workers shooting.

I try not to rub it in people's faces, but at the same time, I most definitely don't hide it.

Here's a screenshot of my Apple Powerbook TI800. It's my personal laptop, but I carry it with to and from work everyday. My University/work issue Dell Insipiron 8500 uses one of the standard Windows XP wallpapers.

Forget being PC. I have Sinclair Intl, Midway, Brownells, and Wilson Combat catalogs in my office and occasionally I'll bring a copy of Shotgun News or American Rifleman to read at work if I didn't get a chance to flip through it at home. I even hang a target or two on the wall.

Just out of curiosity, where do you work and go to school? I go to the University of Redlands. Where do you go to shoot? Tyler

I work at UC Riverside. Full time staff for campus computing (graduated with B.S. in Computer Science in 2001).

I shoot over at Inland Fish and Game.

University of Redlands? A buddy of mine who used to work with me at UCR works there right now. IIRC, he manages the Fletcher Jones Center computing facilities.

Oh, btw, the cool thing about leaving targets on the wall is that visitors start asking questions about shooting during conversations.

One of the physical plant (maintenance) workers who asks me for info on computers and what not saw one of my targets on the wall one day and I found that he is into trap/skeet/clays and hunting.

And the occasional client (student/staff/faculty) will ask me where is a good place to shoot at in the area or ask me information about owning a gun (because they were thinking about getting one).

I never had a person look at one of my targets or gun related paraphernalia and show disgust or start preaching anti-gun ideas to me. Of course, clients who come into my office won't make a fuss anyway, if they want their computing problem fixed. :D

Stickjockey, I have no idea where that one is, but I wish I could put that engine back in and take her for a slow speed spin!:cool:
