    For those of you who carry, Do you carry while you are actually working onsite? How do you deal with dust? Does it alter your cleaning schedule?

    I won’t work in an area where I need to ccw while actually working. So no, I’m not going to add a heavy gun to the mix. If anything I would consider outfitting a drill case as a weapon box and keeping that close, but that’s all going to depend upon who you are working with.

    I don’t cary but have considered it. If I did I don’t think I would carymon the site. I don’t need the additional weight or see a reason to have it there..

    If I have to carry on a job, I’m not going to work there.

    If I carry on a job I go to jail.

    I would say that if you are gonna carry on a job then yeah, clean more often. And practice a lot. There’s nothing worse than some who carrys but can’t hit what they are aiming at. Not suggesting you can’t shoot, just stating a personal conviction.

    I can perfectly understand that sentiment and agree wholeheartedly.

    It is a rare occasion that I leave home without my carry gun but I do not wear the gun while at work. I have a small gun safe cable locked to the back seat of my truck that I stow my pistol in while at work.

    Can’t carry. Wouldn’t want to on the job site. I’ve worn my handgun enough to know I would rather leave it it off then cart it around all the time.

    Did you see A Concord Carpenters facebook pictures? They had a little target practice on their hammer test site.

    @samm
    , What’s this personal conviction based on?

    While I was thinking about this, and the need to carry, I started thinking about the people who pay me in cash. Mostly older retired people, one little old Italian lady comes to mind, and I think if I’m worried about having cash on me that she has just paid me for rebuilding her porch, how does she manage to get back and forth to the bank safely. Of course this was the job where I’d regularly find spent cartridges on the street and sidewalk.

    You might be surprised how many of those older customers are “protected”!

    The 9th circuit Court of Appeals just overturned California concealed carry rules starting we have a right to conceal and personal protection is enough of a cause. The state can’t pick and choose which citezens can protect themselves and which can’t. Shall not infringe has real meaning.

    That was a couple months ago, right? That was an important ruling for the second amendment.

    I a person’s choice to carry or not to carry. Sad to think a contractor might feel the need for such protection. I sure hope you guys stay safe!

    I’ve confronted drug dealers and felons on this property when I first started as property manager. It was a real rat’s nest of crime that I had to clean out. The ‘weapon’ I carried and showed at those times was my little cell phone. As soon as they saw this little ole lady flip open her cell phone, they backed down 🙂

    Man..it took me a bit to figure out what the hell CCW was…lol. I don’t own any guns. I am not against them and my wife and I have talked a few times about getting one. I think the jobsite would be the last place I would carry one. In the truck, maybe, but not while working.

    Being Canadian it’s not something we’d have to worry about. I need to fill out a stack of paperwork and strap it on a moose, wait three weeks and then just maybe I’ll get permission to drive to a gun range and back, taking only the most direct route without peeing or getting a coffee along the way.

    Could be knowledge, experience, or both. He’s right. If you are going to take on the responsibility of CCW, then you better be able to hit your mark. Marksmanship and weapons safety can’t be stressed enough. I have carried a lot. IMHO if you are going to CCW on the Job, of anywhere for that matter, you need to go out and shoot frequently. Don’t just shoot on a Saturday though after a good nights sleep. Go to shoot after you have had a long hot and exhausting day when you can’t think about anything other than a cold beer and a soft chair. Go to a range and stress out your body, run a couple of miles, wear out your arms doing push ups, jumping jacks or whatever and then shoot, because you won’t be well rested when time comes to use your pistol. I guarantee you that it will be harder than you ever thought to hit anything. The last thing that anyone needs is missing our mark and hitting something unintentional. All that crap you see on TV where a sofa stops bullets, or your car door, is all a load of crap.
