    For those who work non office jobs, what and where do you carry?

    I have been working an office job in St. Louis for the past couple years, where I concealed my S&W 442 in a pocket holster (although pocket carrying is uncomfortable for me when I am doing manual work). I have since been let go from that job, and have secured a position at an auto shop, which will involve a lot of bending, lifting, laying on the ground, etc. I am trying to figure out what to carry without buying a bunch of different holsters/guns, (although I don't hate the idea of adding to the collection ).
    I am thinking of possibly getting a Smart Carry holster and keep carrying the 442, or maybe even getting a smaller gun to carry in the Smart Carry.
    Or possibly getting a LCP and ankle carrying (not sure if I would enjoy ankle carrying the 442, but I know alot of people do)
    Looking forward to hearing what everybody does or would do in this work environment.
    Thanks for any input

    The smart carry would be a good idea. If not with your 442, then definitely with a lcp. You won't even feel it while you are wearing it. Its so light.

    I sometimes sleep with a thunderwear(same thing) holster with a S&W 637. Not that I mean too. I just forget its there and pass out on the couch.

    If its comfortable enough for that, should be comfy enough for work. JMHO

    I don't get down on the ground, but I do a lot of lifting, bending, and moving in my suit.

    I carry a Glock 30 in an IWB Tucked.

    Appendix carry depending the size of your cannon. .45 G subcompact should be fine in AIWB.

    It takes week to get used to.

    I either pocket carry a 642 or Appendix carry the same. The last week, I have carried a Kahr PM 9 and it is even better than the snub.... Appendix carry is great, but if I am doing a lot of lifting bending and such..pocket normally, or at 3:30 IWB. But I favor pocket carry.

    My job involves bending, lifting, rolling on ground etc. The only thing that I have found comfortable and concealable is pocket carry. I carry either a KelTec P3AT or a S&W 642, usually the 642. I have never tried a Smartcarry or appendix carry, but I can't see how they/that would be comfortable doing lots of bending, stooping etc.

    Try. test. Don't dismiss off hand.

    I'm doing a lot of the same type of stuff, even a little bit of running, yard work, workout, it's amazing how a little 442 disappears.

    I even once tried to carry only my boxer briefs on (back yard/indoors) and the holster/gun combo stuck like glue.

    Imagine 642/442 is this
