    OP, you were made. You need to implement far better concealment immediately.

    As much as I don't like it I carry a kel-tec p32 in my pocket at work.It is my only option. Any other time it's a j-frame,small frame 9mm pistol,full size 1911 .45 but I can't have them find me out or I'll loose my job. A medical pro should be very cautious carrying in the hospital. A pocket pistol might be your best bet. Good luck in your quest.tom.

    I don't think I can move my white jacket out of the way, untuck my shirt, draw, and fire, fast enough to prevent harm to myself.
    If you wear the jacket all the time it will definitely conceal whatever's in your pocket. Yeah, the white coat does slow your draw for IWB, but it makes a nice cover garment for pocket carry. I agree w/ others that the Shield is too big for pocket carry, as you can testify. A 380 is best route for pocket carry. Have you thought about, or tried, a 38 Special snub nose for pocket carry? Not many seem to like the ankle holster well enough to use it long term for primary carry. If you insist on a 9mm instead of a 380, you MIGHT can pocket carry something smaller, like a Kel-Tec PF9, Ruger LC9 or Kahr CM9. Even then, you might still print. The big problem for you is that you're now on the radar of a nosey co-worker...... Be careful, my friend.

    Ditto. I carry a S&W Bodyguard in a Smart Carry when I need really deep concealment. I wear it off-center so that it rides on my thigh, right under my pants-pocket - right around 10:00. It's completely invisible there. For added assurance, I slip my wallet into that pocket, right over the top of the pistol. Any questions about a bulge and "it's just my wallet". But there are no questions, because the BG is so flat it adds very little to the ordinary wallet bulge. Wearing it under the pants pocket also has the advantage that, by reaching into my pocket, hooking a finger under the barrel, and pushing up, I can pop the grip up above the belt-line. This makes for a faster and more covert draw than is possible when you're wearing the smart carry at the usual 12:00 position, where you actually have to reach into your pants to get at the pistol. Plus, I find it way more comfortable to wear it at 10:00.

    Prefer pocket carry, because a sport coat gets pretty warm in the summer.

    Trying to make PC work. Not interested in a dinky .380
    FYI, I wear my Smart Carry, as I described above, in dress slacks all the time, without a white coat or even a sport coat to cover the front - just a tucked in dress-shirt. Looks like the Shield is only marginally wider than my BG - .95" vs .84" - so it seems likely that you could use your Shield in a similar setup with similar results. The only disadvantage I can see is that the draw isn't quite as quick as from the pocket even with my little "push up" trick. But it's still pretty quick, and if you need the concealment, you need the concealment. IMHO, the extra fraction of a second you'd gain by pocket carry isn't worth risking that people will notice that you're carrying in violation of workplace policy.

    urine bag .... or my heart defibillator .....

    typically though, when people see the bulge it IS my cell phone. They never notice the gun on the other side.

    It's my MP3 player, I forgot to put it in my desk before my rounds (or whatever it is you do).
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    THIS.

    Yep. If he's asking, he knows. That he hasn't dimed (quartered!) you out yet probably means he's pro-carry, or afraid to squeal without 100% proof.

    You could try: "Are you checking out my junk again, Charlie??!!! Please stop that behavior or I will have no choice but to report it!" And then go get yourself a LCP with a pocket holster (like this)

    Looks like a wallet, easy access, doesn't bulge or print and goes with me everywhere.

    Before retiring most of my co-workers were much younger than I was. I found that commenting on how hot their mom looked last time I saw her ended the discussion rather quickly.
