Even though my employer says we can't have them in our cars I still lock mine in my center console. A few days ago a store got robbed right down the street from my office and the guys were headed my way to our building and I went to my car and got my gun out and put it in my Carhartt inside pocket and went back in. Nobody knew I did it.
During work hours our front doors are open and all we have between us the lobby is a double glass door.
There was only 3 people in the office and I wasn't going to let 3 armed guys run our way and just sit back and see if they were going to come in our building or not.

I pretty much made the decision I would shoot them and most likely loose my job and get to go home to my wife, or be shot for not having my gun and be buried at 25 years old.
I chose my gun and wife...

X3 if you are carrying correctly and safely, the chance of anyone finding out is miniscule. While the chance of actually needing it is also miniscule, the consequence of not having it if you need it can be deadly.

Exactly. By the grace of God they didn't come into our building but they did break into 6 cars in the parking lot beside our parking lot. There is a 5' grass area between our 2 parking lots. That's how close they got to us.

When the police sent the notice across our network you could actually go to the windows and see the 3 guys.
My other concern was the other 2 people in my office was a 63 year old woman and a 57 year old man. I would have felt horrible if one or both of them got shot and I could have done something about it. I have two 1 1/2" thick wooden doors I can close and get into our server room where I would pretty much be safe but I couldn't leave the two elder people to defend themselves.

Luckily the 3 guys were caught right outside our parking lot and were taken in but it was kind of a wake up call.
I carry a Glock 27 (.40 sub-compact) when I put it in my Carhartt coat you can't tell I have it on me at all.

YEP lol I had 2 9 rd magazines and 1 in the chamber of Hornady Critical Defense waiting lol
They also could see the big "NO GUNS" on our doors.
Thing they don't know atleast one of us in here has a gun lol.
I have a straight shot from my office door to the front doors.
They open the front doors and one step in it's goodnight forever...
I was just talking to office director via email. She said not even 3 months ago the building to our right was held up at gun point.
She told me "They did the right thing, they listened and obeyed the criminals" 1 out of 2 were caught.
I told her ya that's what I would do... She doesn't know I keep my gun in my car. She's a HUGE liberal and anti-gun to the max.
She was the one giving me crap a few weeks ago about my anti-obama stickers.

I wonder what the state will do in its own parking lots? Time will tell.
