    I think I've said this before in this discussion but I'm going to say it again because IME it's absolutely critical.

    If you're going to carry a gun at work against company policy or you're going to keep a gun in your car at work it is imperative that none of your co-workers know about it.

    If one person knows it is only a matter of time before it gets back to your boss.

    That's one of the reasons that I disagree with the concept of getting out of your car and taking your holster off or locking your gun in your trunk because it's only a matter of time somebody's going to see you do that.

    I would also suggest that you make a determination now before it comes up what you're going to do in the unlikely event that you come to work someday and they want to search your car.

    I don't keep anything in my car that's not supposed to be on company property. If they asked me today just searched my car I'd tell them no knowing it was going to cost me my job

    My company can search bags going in and out, but they can not search my car even if it's on their property. Might be different in other states, and whether it's a company vehicle. In all my years, I've never heard of a private employer searching their employees' cars.

    As far as putting a carry gun in the trunk, I don't believe anyone was suggesting gettting out of the car first, and then take of the holster second. I generally have an easy on/off holster that I take off while in the car, drop into a small inconspicuous bag, and then I put that bag in the trunk.

    That's almost as bad an idea as the guy who said just put in a McDonald's bag in the backseat.

    What do you think's going to happen if somebody at work sees him with that holster? Do you think they're just going to go well it's just a holster no big deal?

    The idea is to be discreet walking around with an empty holster on your belt isn't that

    Where I worked, and in my state, a locked car is considered your property and the gun can legally be there, even on school grounds, etc.

    When I worked I never holstered outside of the car as I didn't want it obvious there was usually a gun in the car (there actually was a gun in most of the trucks in that particular parking lot), but I don't worry about it holstering it outside in the few prohibited places I go infrequently, the hospital or chiropractor or whatever as I don't go there often.

    Sorry, I missed that. I'd have to agree with you there. That wouldn't be a smart idea.
