    IMO, the M&P Shield isn't a pocket carry gun. Even if it fits your pocket, it's going to be noticeable bulge... as you have found out. I agree with the others in this thread. Sooner or later, someone may rat you out for carrying. Which is a more likely scenario than the chance you may need the gun.

    That is what I was thinking. Even a more vague whispered "It's a personal medical thing." might be enough.

    Just say it's a medical device. If they ask anything more just say you don't want to talk about it and most people will just leave you alone.

    Ask him why he is looking at that region of your body. That should make it awkward enough that he will not bring it up again.

    If its printing that badly it barely qualifies as concealed. I'd change something. Never tell a co-worker your carrying, its only insurance if kept unknown to all else.Otherwise it turns into a liability imho...

    Depends on who it is.

    What did they guess it was?

    I'd probably switch it for one of the things they guessed, unless they guessed it was what you are actually carrying. Show them and be done with it.

    No question you need to carry in a way that's comfortable for you, but the reality is the Shield is not a pocket gun, if you carry it in your pocket people will see it and ask questions which defeats the entire purpose of a concealed weapon. If you insist on pocket carry I'd strongly suggest buying a gun designed for that. BG380's are nice. SmartCarry is also a good option. Not noticeable and much more comfortable then you'd think.

    Ya I don't see how you expect to get away with that gun. Even my little LCP somes can print in my pocket depending on how I bend my leg. What I need to get is a pocket holster that in can slide into in my pocket. That way it sort of looks square and like I just have a wallet in there or big phone.

    Put a pocket-sized Bible in that pocket and just tell him, sarcastically, "It's a gun, duh. What did you think it would be?!" And then pull Bible out of that pocket and show him. Then waggle your eyebrows at him and say, "why all the sudden interest in my pocket?"

    I'd like to carry my S&W M&P 9c in my pocket but guess what ITS NOT A POCKET PISTOL!!!! and neither is the shield. Buy a smaller gun and get over your phobia of having a smaller caliber. I carry Ruger LCP in my pocket and it barely prints at all!

    Get something similar in size like a phone in a case. Pull it out one time and they will forget all about it. They probably suspect something at this point. You should try and defuse it now.

    Someone else once said to tell them "it's a medical pump, it deliverers premeasured minerals to protect me." (leads a mineral, right?)
