Good for you... now for the important part... KEEP IT QUIET.
A part of CCW that many fail to consider is the "intimidation" factor for the lemmings and sheeple that surround us all.
I've EDC'd a concealed handgun daily for 17 years and in all that time, not 1 single coworker has ever know about my "armed" status.
All it takes is 1 person with a beef against you to make a false claim of brandishing or intimidation and BLAM... here comes the policy banning guns in your office and OH... by the way... Here's your pink slip Johnny!
Some good advice I gleaned from an article in American Handgunner, many years ago... went something like this...
"A gun does not make you a Cop anymore than a Fire Extinguisher makes you a Fireman. Both the Gun and the Fire Extinguisher are simply tools who's purpose is to allow you to survive a deadly situation...UNIT PROFESIONAL HELP ARRIVES."
Words to live by my friend. Good luck and be safe.
