Another great article Mike, I don’t want to split hairs however mentioned in the article is cars that are crushed or not accessible because of a natural disaster means that thinking ahead you may need to bring the GHB into your office or work place but many employers don’t allow firearms at work.
I didn’t say the employer would search your car in fact in most instances that’s illegal and you are a lucky minority that you can carry at work, I agree leaving a firearm in a vehicle is a BAD idea.They aren't going to search your car. And at any rate my job is not worth my life. That said, I wouldn't personally leave a firearm in a back pack in my car anyway. That's a terrible idea. A couple extra mags for the one I am violating company policy by carrying on my person, sure. The author even states it is a good idea to have a full size in your bag as well as whatever carry gun you have on you. And in the same article he says only pack what you need.
Obviously everyone's situation is different, but my "GHB" is a "Tactical" fanny pack. It has very little in it. No water or food because I have that stuff with me in my lunch box every day. No guns because I have one with me on my hip every day. No first aid stuff because I already have that in my truck as well as a bleed kit. Multi-tool, flashlight, spare mags, extra knife, Ibuprofen and that's about it. That fanny pack does double duty. On range days it's a dump pouch for shotgun shells.
Can carry might not be the right phrase.I didn’t say the employer would search your car in fact in most instances that’s illegal and you are a lucky minority that you can carry at work, I agree leaving a firearm in a vehicle is a BAD idea.
Every (almost every) article I have read on both GHBags and BOBags are tactical looking so carrying that bag into your workplace including a firearm in that “type” of bag could be a reg flag that results in a search and unemployment including criminal charges. My opinion.
