    I know I can't be the only one.

    Perfect example - my mother got me a Glock fleece pull over for x-mas - I wear it almost every day to work, 99% of the workforce here has no idea what the glock logo looks like and assume it says, "(funny looking G&L)OCK - PERFECTION"

    Then when I owned a XDM I made my desktop wallpaper the pistol case and it just says, "XDM" on it.

    :lol:

    Every time I see the Glock logo my subconscious tells me it says "Clock Perfection"

    If no one knows what it means, are guns rights really being supported? Think about the tree falling in the forest with no one around to hear it... did it make a noise? :wink:

    Seriously though, the 1%... how do they react to the fleecie? Would your employer hold it against you if they knew you were a gun-totin' gun nut?

    Got the carry policy changed from no-go to ok so long as discrete. I guess that is not very subtle, but I feel pretty good about it.

    My workplace doesn't have a gun policy so there is no policy to get changed. I still don't let anyone know that I'm carrying at work though since I'm at corporate and the top management (and owners of the company) are from Japan (here for less than 3 years on average) where there are no 2nd Amendment rights. I'm fairly certain that knowledge that people carrying in the office would not be received well by management. As long as they don't make a rule against possessing on company property I have no reason to raise the issue.

    I advise a key decision maker about this and other related issues + I am attempting to set up a team building exercise for management which involves a trip to a local range :D

    It would be nice to work with rational people like that.

    I was turned down the first time I brought it up. It took a long time to persuade.

    That could be a nice Examiner article, MP. Some tips on the art of gentle persuasion from those of the carrying persuasion. Was your experience something we can learn from?

    I just leave three S&Ws, one Ruger, One Colt, one Beretta, and assorted other firearms that I currently am enthralled with, on my desk....

    1. Use the company printer to print out a stack of targets.

    2. Announce that you need some "lead therapy", and are taking the rest of the afternoon off.

    3. Threaten your co-corker with severe reprisals if he doesn't come shooting with you.

    ... I should probably add that my husband and I are in business together. :lol:

    We rate the weeks in boxes, as in, "Boy, this is shaping up to be a 3-box week, and it's only Tuesday!" :D

    Creative use of figurative speaking...

    "...I'll give it a shot..."
    "...We have to take aim at the problem..."
    "...We'll see where we stand when the bullet hits the bone..."
    "...It's like having an under-powered rifle..."
    "...We need a longer range sniper scope..."
    "...You were right on target..."
    "...Try using the heavier caliber equipment..."
    "...We're going to need more ammunition..."
    "...You have a veritable arsenal of solutions...

    Me, too.
    A guy asked me the other day why I had it. I told him it kept my pants from riding up on me.

    The few people familiar with glocks all complimented it.

    They already know I am a gun nut at work - for some odd reason I never get in trouble with my bosses... hmm 8)

    One of my bosses saw a pic of my dpms 308 rifle and was like "uh yea...I dont think I'll ever be the one to hand you a pink slip"
