    I keep my gun right next to me with one in the chamber, for safety reason.

    I wouldn't feel safe with my other pistols with one in the chamber.
    The Glock 26 G4 has three built in safeties that eliminates discharge by dropping and I keep mine in a carbon-fiber holster that prevents accidental pull on the trigger although it has a safety in the trigger as well.

    This happened at my hub many years ago. I don’t know what happened to the guy.

    Accidentally bringing it to work isn't half as bad as the many who accidentally bring one to an airport. (Oh, I forgot that was in my carry-on!)
    People are stoopid!

    Let me tell you why ur not coming back. If you actually do come back and shoot up the place, the personnel who you notified that you brought a firearm will be looking for a new career. Are they gonna risk that? Hell no.

    You should have never told on yourself! If the guard shack bums are too lazy to check going in, they damn sure don’t care going out! You should have kept ur mouth shut!

    About nine years ago we had a guy bring in his new revolver to show a couple of coworkers. Another employee witnessed him showing his gun off and told a supervisor. He was terminated but he filed and eventually won it back and still works here today.

    I don't believe the guy should have been fired, but I do think he was pretty stupid. It's not that hard to not bring a gun to work! If you want to show it off take some pictures of it or invite your co workers over after work. Sadly the world we live in today is going to :censored2: so some people are put on edge at the sight of a firearm.

    If they fire you then they should fire security for allowing a gun to get past them.
    If you have a BA worth his salt you should get your job back.

    We had a driver who accidently forgot to take his handgun out of his backpack and was caught in the guard shack with the metal detector. This was shortly after the three murders in the Birmingham Hub, he didn't get his job back.

    Yes Sir, I remember that catalogue quite vividly from 30 + years ago. I thought man, that'll be great.

    Now, we get nothing or they'll throw your "certificate" on the counter and hope you find it. I usually

    throw mine directly in the trash in front of mgt. They might say " you don't want this?" "you earned

    this, it has a diamond....". And the safety committee co-chair union steward looks on like he cares about

    anything but himself(nothing could be truer). BTW-I asked for a new Circle of Honor hat, "No we just

    can't do that..." I said, " Ok, I'll just wear this one, I've had it 4 years and it's a little green and stained

    from sweat(4 years)". Jaded, bitter? You bet.

    We had a Business Agent bring a gun all the way to a hearing at the hub. He declared it and apologized. He "retired" soon after.

    Knew a guy who was allowed to conceal carry on his route. There was a murderer on his route and he was in a rural area. He was allowed to carry until the guy got caught. Got approved by the higher ups. Pun not intended.

    I could see people getting away with this at a mom and pa store or something. But definitely not in any major business, especially a delivery business.
    They don’t call it going postal for nothing.
