Walk right past him, don't give him the time of day. But listen for somebody coming up behind you. Draw attention to yourself.

I think an ankle holster is a waste. What do you say, " oh wait a minute let me tie my shoe". Then as you are down trying to fake him out he kicks you in the face.
Pepper sray in your hand would work fine for you if that is the situation with your clothing. Just a thought

I rather have something on me somewhere than nothing on me nowhere. Just my opinion. I have a close friend that is the only way he carries.

I mean maybe it's just me but I've been walking down the street and tied my shoe while continuing walking even though there was some hopping involved. I'm pretty sure I could grab a gun out of a holster on my ankle while running. Wouldn't be pretty, but doable.

ccw= carrying a concealed weapon= felony

cpl=concealed pistol license=good to have

I'd have to look it up again, but IIRC, the cpl does not cover you to carry knives, pipes, bug spray, brake cleaner, etc. which can all be construed as deadly weapons. that would get you a ccw, though. then you cant have a cpl.

if you already have your CPL, then carry when your walking around, but put it in your bag when you enter your building.

personally, I would care more about my life then that unsightly bulge on my hip

glad to hear it worked out for the best though, and like someone else already said, watch out for this guy because he may still be around the area looking for someone

x2.

How professional do you dress for work? Is it just formal, or do you regularly wear a sport coat?

I can agree that I probably wouldn't want to carry while at work anyways. But even in the summer, I see a lot of women wearing thin jackets when they are out. I can imagine that those would be good to conceal your firearm. Maybe look into something you could throw on when walking to your car? Something like This.

This looks pretty hawt



I'm actually going shopping for a good coat soon, that I can wear this winter that will better conceal my paddle holster. My IWB is very uncomfortable.

Quoted just for the "Hotness"... Glad all is good Kerryann... Seems to me you know how to shoot one of these as well??? Might not fit under a light jacket or the cuff of your pants, but would definitely keep A$$holes at bay....

Kinda like this then you mean? I would have felt a lot safer if I had that for sure!


I usually wear a thin blouse and a skirt. I havent had much success with pants lately because I lose weight so fast that they start to get all baggy at the crotch and butt after like three or four weeks. A skirt I can usually get about 8 weeks out of before it is obnoxiously larger. Also a skirt is cheaper to get tailored. I have to check my company's policies. I am not even sure I am allowed to carry at work.

About 90 % of crimes go unsolved in the D so on that note if you kill the perp you have a good chance of not getting cought and you rid the world of another A$$Hole.

I am pretty sure that if you fired a gun in the area I was in people would have noticed. There is a difference between the downtown area I work in and the surrounding ghetto. I am not saying its safe down here obviously, but it's not quite the same as what I am sure you imagine.

Check the policy, if it doesn's say anything about carrying DO NOT ASK. Just carry. If you ask for permission and they tell you no, then you are responsible for that information. If you check the employee handbook and it doesn't make any mention that you cannot carry at work or in the building in which you work (if it's not owned by your company) then you are better off asking for forgiveness later if something comes up.

Thankfully for me, my employer believes that we should be allowed to protect ourselves however we see fit, I didn't have to ask.

Just because you can't carry your gun at work doesn't mean you can't bring it with you.

Leave it in your car locked up. Winchester makes electronic vaults that you can mount to the floor. You can lock it in there while at work, and then have it ready in your vehicle if needed, or take it with you when you go into a store or the YMCA.

LTC (RET) Dave Grossman,
Quote:

Denial is a save-now-pay-later scheme, a contract written entirely in small print, for in the long run, the denying person knows the truth on some level.

And so the warrior must strive to confront denial in all aspects of his life, and prepare himself for the day when evil comes. If you are warrior who is legally authorized to carry a weapon and you step outside without that weapon, then you become a sheep, pretending that the bad man will not come today. No one can be "on" 24/7, for a lifetime. Everyone needs down time. But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...
"Baa."

This business of being a sheep or a sheep dog is not a yes-no dichotomy. It is not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees, a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-sand-sheep and on the other end is the ultimate warrior. Few people exist completely on one end or the other. Most of us live somewhere in between. Since 9-11 almost everyone in America took a step up that continuum, away from denial. The sheep took a few steps toward accepting and appreciating their warriors, and the warriors started taking their job more seriously. The degree to which you move up that continuum, away from sheephood and denial, is the degree to which you and your loved ones will survive, physically and psychologically at your moment of truth.
