KelTec P3AT .380 in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster; literally "prints" just like a wallet in your pants pocket.

Why a gun at work? Depends on the work I guess:

Convenience store clerk, cab driver, pizza delivery guy, if you make daily receipts deposits, repo guy - lots of reasons.

I always carry my Kerwhaw Leek, but the truth is, there are 'weapons; anywhere you look, so outside of a gun, theres not a lot of point in carrying something.

Hell, car keys are a very effective weapon.

About 10 years ago I was the manager of a shop in the rough part of a city near where I live. This area had lots of 24 hour bars and was notorious for being a hotspot for violent crime so I thought it prudent to fashion a weapon out of what I could find lying around the shop. It had to be an inconspicuous weapon so that I wouldn't get told off by the area manager (if he came around snooping).

I found the perfect candidate for the job - a cylinder of cardboard from inside an industrial sized roll of tissue. It was similar to the cardboard inside a roll of toilet tissue except it was 2 feet long and the actual cardboard was about 1/2th an inch thick. For all intents and purposes it was like a baseball bat.

Anyway, I gummed up one end with a large amount of Blue-Tack to add weight to it and positioned the thing under the counter so I could quickly grab it if anyone tried to rob the gaff.

It came in useful only once. I got into work early one Saturday morning and started to go about my business. It was customary for me to leave the front door unlocked (but shut) so that other members of staff could come in to start their shifts. On that particular morning I was there on my own when a drunken, burly ruffian burst through the door and started asking me if I wanted to "get it on", in the sexual sense of the term!

I grabbed my cardboard roll but, being a gentleman, I refrained from clouting the loon and merely poked him out of the door with it - which was smartly locked behind him the instant his fat arse had cleared the door frame.

Just imagine how much better you would be treated at work if no one knew who was packing and who wasn't...

That's the first thing I thought too
If you take a knife to work for that purpose you are asking for trouble, seriously

Well im a security guard my weapon is my 6 cell touch when i goto to a alarm response i hold my touch on my should so when i walk around i can hit them quick when they come at me.
second i use a 9mm pistol when i do cash in transit instead of the 45 revolver the 9mm holds more ammo and semi automatic.

When I had a job,there were potential weapons pretty much everywhere.

Now that I am unemployed,I feel defenseless to a point.

But I am not dis-armed.........

I have been armed at a couple jobs.

In the mining trade because we worked remote sites with problems with thieves we wold be armed.

Any time we were doing a gold pour at the last mine i worked at me and my employees would be armed.

Anytime we went to some of our mine sites in the summer we went armed due to the illegal pot farms being run in the area.

While you are on the job at the shop: mechanic's hammer, torque wrench, tire iron, etc. A knife is nothing but trouble and indicates that you planned to be armed with a deadly weapon.

I've carried lots of different types of weapons on different jobs over the years, at the moment, I am working in community corrections, They don't even authorize us pepper spray, and we half to go out into the city to onsite these people who potentially could pose a life threatening situation depending on where, and what you catch them doing. I carry a G2 surefire with a red lens cap, and a S&W Tactical pen. Wits and sense are about the best weapons you can carry with you when you are out doing field work.

When I worked as and auto parts retailer as commercial manager and main driver I had several self protection measure despite the stores ridiculous policy. The policy on CCWs at this very large retailer
*cough get in the zone cough* was if you were caught with a firearm on the store premise even the parking lot while working you would be terminated pretty much no questions asked. Well no job is worth me losing my life over so I always kept my XD .40 Sub Comp. in my car and had my Rossi .38spcl J-frame copy in the delivery truck, I was responsible for collecting on all commercial accounts and being a fairly high volume commercial store I could at times have substantial sums of money on me. Not mention 95% of the time I was the one to make the bank deposits painting a pretty good target on my back. Outside of the store I was covered, as far as inside everyone who really did any work at our store all had pocket knives clipped to the insides of our pockets but as far as I was concerned that was my last line of defense. I also kept CV axles of a model that we hadn't sold one in 2+ years underneath under each register and parts lookup pod. Everyone new exactly why they were there, I'm glad for the would be perps that they never tried anything because they would have been in a world of hurtin' with a 25 pound CV axle wrapped around there head.
