I'm an auto mechanic for a used car lot and I keep a Taurus PT99 9mm in my toolbox at work. I also have a concealed firearms permit. My boss happened to be standing behind me when I opened the side drawer of my toolbox and noticed the gun. I thought my ass was cooked, but it turns out he has a concealed permit too! Now, we're goin shootin this weekend. Finally, things are going my way.

Let him out shoot you, & praise his every shot. When he starts talking about betting on target scores, & after the a few losses to him triple the bet, & then sink his battle ship[;D]

Man, guys that dont wrench have no idea what tools are worth. Not only are they worth lots of money, they belong to you like your guns belong to you.

Professional tools are always big bucks. My tool kit I take to work every day has about $1500 in knives/cooking tools. And my kit is SMALL Some chefs I have have worked for have over $7000 in tool kits. You bet us pros watch our tools! Good deal on your boss...he knows how to protect his bussiness!

Careful you don't have a CONFEDERATE FLAG decal inside the tool box. Some 'bro might be offended!

Twenty five years ago when I was a John Deere mechanic I purchased a set of Snap-On tools. This set included some very big and special tools, and cost me a forune then. I would hate to, or maybe not, see the price of them now. I do know I would not like to have to replace them now.... fullclip

I don't know what kind of a car lot you work for, but the tools may not be the problem. Some of these guys work on a Cash basis, or take payments on their cars.... We (wife and I) had a friend who's father owned a car lot (small gravel lot). Someone came in and beat them so severely that both have permanant brain damage. She was about 8 months pregnant at the time, delivered a healthy baby while she was still comatose. We don't know (or the Police either) if it was an attempted robbery gone bad, a revenge thing (her Ex husband was fairly dirty and reportedly into drugs).

When I ran a dealership service dept. Out of 24 techs, 8 had a pistols in their box one guy used to keep his mac on hand . I sold 4 tech colts of mine 2 .357 and 2 .45 I didnt make any money on them I lost money on the two .357's but it was nice to know they were out there. I had more than on person threaten to come down and shot me. One guy really did show up with a gun. He never pulled it, the cross fire would have been ugly. Dont get me started on tools !!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn rip off.
