    I did a search and could not find anything on this. I know this is a subject not everyone likes but has anyone had their accoutant write off the purchase of a hand gun as a business expense for the snow industry? Mine said she doesn't see it as being a red flag but I'd ike to see if anyone has done it. I know that the trucking industry does it with some drivers so I figure why not at least ask. Every little write off helps the bottom line. Thank you.

    I know for a fact it can count as a security expense. If you have more then one employee just make sure you have a "Weapons in The Work Place" policy. If you're a sole proprietor no worries.
