I think InspMO is right... unless it''s outright illegal to carry a weapon.. in some cases, it''s a good idea.. (and what a smart idea to get the contractor to QUICKLY correct violations)...
"feel lucky, punk?? well, do ya?"

If I think there will be a problem, I have one of the city PD''s officers go with me. Being as I live in a very small city (about 2,000), I pretty much know everybody and who is a problem.
It has been suggested to me that I get a concealed weapons permit. I''m not quite ready to go that far (yet). With our current influx of "other Californios", I just might need to reconsider. :rolleyes:

Shoot expandable foam in the nostrils and in the mouth then exopy their lips shut. That will make them think.

I might also mention that I am 6 foot 6 inches tall, over 200 pounds and have a wife with a very bad temper. With all that on my side, in this smaller community, I really don''t have a real worry on how to defend myself. I simply tell my wife, then watch out if you are on the other end.

I certainly am not suggesting that we should not be protecting ourselves in the field. A local inspector was stabbed to death by a "meth" head in our area in 2002. A tragic death that occurred during a routine concrete inspection. I feel that the display on firearms could generate as much resentment to the occupation as benefit the carrier. If a firearm, or any self defence mechanism, be possessed by an inspector, it should be concealed. This would go back to the uniform issue discussed in other posts and the threat that some people may have simply because of the way someone appears to them with a uniform on.

What''s the old saying...I would rather be judged by 12 then carried by six.

Are tazers firearms? I think not.
Our Fire Captains (cheif), also have city provided firearms.

City handbook prohibits firearms unless employed as police officer. Make sure you get properly deputized to CYA. Cetainly don''t support firearms but only work in a small community. I also understand the problems that exist. Have had the same concerns with fire department responces on medical call / fire calls. You are nver sure what you are walking into and should always be prepared to back out in a rapid manner when you can. Stay safe.

The truck I use for county field work used to have a short little baseball bat in the back "crew" seat.
Have to say it gave me some comfort there in case of emergency, until a stop over by the county jail to have the truck washed by inmates resulted in its confiscation by the deputies there. They said the inmates could not be exposed to items that could be weapons.

32 Beretta; w/hollowpoints; fits in large cell phone pouch, camera case, and/or binocular case; also let it be known that wounding "animals" is cruel and should never be considered.
Another thing that keeps the more intelligent individuals from assaulting government inspectors in Texas is that it is a felony.
