    Simplest solution and the one I would go with... revolver. No setback or pull from slingshotting the bullet in with a slide.

    What does he do with the rounds when he unloads the revolver at work every morning?

    IMO the easiest solution is to keep the setup that he has now, add a lock box to it and simply leave the gun loaded and lock it up when he gets to work.

    I think keeping the gun loaded and getting a lock box is goin to be the best. Nobody knows I have a gun with me, trunk monkey is correct except my whole company would know in two days not two weeks if I told somebody.

    Guns and ammo have been kept in hot vehicles since the invention of the automobile.

    You don't think your co-workers can't see you what you're doing twice per day?

    Keep the gun loaded in a lock box in your vehicle. The heat will not effect your ammo.
    Stop loading and unloading your carry gun!!!
    That is how ND's happen and setback happens. Stop doing that.
    Leave it loaded.


    If you want to carry it on your body, too and from work, get an OWB holster that you can slide on and off your belt. Keep the loaded gun in the holster as you do so. Put the whole loaded gun, in the holster, into the lock box.

    When you get home, put the loaded gun that is still in the holster into your nightstand drawer or safe.

    Your best bet would be to invest in a console safe:
    https://www.consolevault.com/

    https://www.lockerdown.com/


    Iraq and Africa were / are the same way. Outdoor temperatures reach 125F.

    I live in Florida and leave ammo in my truck. I shoot local competitions and sometimes have 600 rounds on board. No issues. I have a console vault for guns and if I have a carry gun there, it’s loaded. I don’t rotate ammo or unload magazines. Everything goes bang when I want and never when I don’t.

    I do not carry a gun where prohibited. If I decide I want to enter facilities where a gun is prohibited, I comply. I’ve worked for employers who have me sign a document agreeing to comply with their no gun policy. I don’t lie or cheat, so if I sign it, I comply. Frankly, the threat of dying from a paper cut is greater than dying from a shooting in the workplace.

    So, let me ask this since I didn't see it addressed or maybe mis-read. The company has a strict no firearm policy but loaded mags are ok? Bet they wouldn't appreciate the loaded mags on your person either. Anti-gun establishments seem to freak out over anything gun related, not just guns. At least that's been my experience.

    As for ammo in your car, I've carried ammo in my vehicle for years. Keep loaded extra mags in both vehicles I drive frequently and only rotate them whenever I drive whichever one to go shooting.

    Ammo inventory duty and waste burning duty were my two least favorite details to pull. It was normally 140 degrees inside our ammo conex. And it was pretty close to our UXO pit.

    Get a good lock box and store it in your vehicle. If you find one that can be bolted to your seat and is compatible with your make/model, that is far better than a cable wrapped around the seating supports.

    If you carry a semi auto, leave it chambered as is in the lockbox to avoid setback. Many do not have room to leave it holstered in the box.

    Sounds like a simple solution to me. Cheap also.

    If it is causing this much consternation, just leave the gun at home. Personally, I don't like leaving things like that in my car anyway, from the risk of it being broken into.

    This is something many employees fail to realize. They really want to think their employer loves them.... well, maybe in a few instances, but in general, all you are to them is a business expense. They would ditch you and your position in a heartbeat if they could find a way to continue business without you. But I digress...

    With the crazy people in this world that’s not an option. I always carry if it’s legal and permitted and avoid places where it’s prohibited. Except for work and that’s why it’s in the car.
