    First day on the job

    Ok, so yesterday I started my new pizza delivery job. It was my first day, so I was a little reluctant to carry my full size Glock until I saw how things panned out while training. I just stuck my P3AT in my cargo pants and went on my way.

    Has anyone else here done the same? Carried something smaller, or nothing at all on the first day just to see how things play out? To make sure you don't get discovered somehow?

    I'd probably have done the same, and then figured out a way to carry a real gun asap.

    Definitely smart to avoid getting made. Hard to live life without an income.

    Yeah, especially an income as lucrative as those pizza delivery guys make!! Juz kidd'n, I've delivered pizza myself and not being able to carry a piece was just a bit discomforting.

    Are you going to be fired if you have to use it? Will you be looking for another job while you're pizza-delivering?

    I'd keep carrying a pocket gun.

    If your working for a national chain, I would be willing to bet your fired if they find out.

    Good luck

    Big or small?

    If your going to carry concealed and it is in fact concealed I would carry the gun that I am most comfortable with defending my life with, big or small. Are you not certain that your Glock can be concealed properly? If so, I would work on finding a better way of concealing it. Maybe a SmartCarry holster is a solution for you. Good Luck!

    Concealing isn't an issue, I just kinda wanted to scope out how uniforms work, and what I'll be doing to figure out the best way to conceal it. I have an IWB holster for my Glock 36 that works just fine with a large enough shirt over it.

    If he works for one of the big companies like Round Table, Straw Hat, Domino's or Pizza Hut, he will be either suspended indefinitely or fired. They'll claim that it is against company policy for their delivery personnel to carry firearms, even if it is legal in the state where they are employed.

    It's happened before.

    I sometimes carry my Colt Govt. .380; my "gun I carry when I can't carry a gun".

    Othertimes when I have to be especially discreet, I use carry a Officer's 1911 in a Smart Carry.

    Pocket carry should help without being discovered...tell no one!

    Good luck!

    Pocket carry until cooler weather arrives and then strap the Glock back on, unless you can figure out how to conceal the Glock now. It can be a factor how they want you to dress, example shirt tucked in vs pulled out.
