So in three days I might not have a job (gun related)

My current employee manual says "no illegal guns" but the employer has the right to set policies verbally, so that point is moot.

And one of the three job possibilities in my "back pocket" is the United States Army. Infantry. At least I'll get to carry when I'm deployed.

Again, that's great, if you can afford it. I have a good paying job with excellent benefits, but it takes me to jersey once in a while, can't conceal deep enough for that risk.

... I've been carrying daily for 4.5 years with no incident.

You created the problem by not fixing the problem when your holster broke. So basically you screwed yourself. Your boss (father) might reconsider if you show him this one error.
I'm only here for the 'Foxes with Firearms' thread.

If they take our guns, who will protect our children?

You will need to decide for yourself if its worth leaving your job. Just keep in mind that most other companies will force you to adhere to the same "no guns" rule if you leave. Finding a gun-friendly job is damn near impossible sometimes.

Even if he sticks with his policy and only allows the gun in a lockbox it may be worth sticking around for a bit. If he's flipped his position before, he may do so again.

Best of luck, I hope it works out.

I don't think I can count the times I've "dared" my dad to fire me, or threatened to quit over something. So far, every time it has resulted in either a change in policy, or a raise. Cool

But that's not to say it couldn't be different this time.

If you join the army, you will be unarmed more often than armed. And, if you live off base and commute to work, you will not be allowed to even keep your gun in your car at all even with an LTCF.

When I worked for the army way back when, that was my biggest beef...I had an hour commute and had to be disarmed the whole time, unless I wanted to risk jail due to a random vehicle search.

Yep you're in a unique and fortunate, for you, situation, but just keep in mind, in the real workplace, (not family) most companies frown upon carry of any kind should he call your bluff.

You're in a unique situation. I hope you get to keep your current gig and your dad backs down, I don't know if you'll find many 'firearm friendly' employers.

Good luck.

Yeah I know, but there are other reasons for joining the service. I've wanted to do it since I was probably 5 years old. If you live on base, can you have a gun in your "quarters" or whatever they call the living arrangements they provide for you? Pardon my ignorance, I honestly know nothing about being in the service.

Yes you can, but you'll be required to register them on base. And no CC or OC in or out of uniform.

There are plenty of good reasons to join the military, but honestly doing so so you can carry in a war zone isn't one of them. Especially since you're unloaded when you're carrying on base (as was the case in Iraq and Afghanistan)
