Carrying concealed while working

I have been pondering the thought of carrying concealed while working. I have over $60k in tools and equipment in my trailer. Last month while mowing, I found someone in my trailer about to steal something. Today was the deciding point to carry at all times since I live only 30 minutes from the Newtown School shooting.

My question is who carries concealed while working and what is a good gun to carry that will stand up to the dirt and dust associated with landscaping/mowing and is small and comfortable enough to have while working?

I personally have never dealt with one but a few friends do construction and they like to carry a bodyguard 380 and he said he loves it. Small and compact. Built in laser also. Kinda cool.

Carrying concealed while working

I too plan on getting my cwp and carrying while working. I purchased a glock 26 yesterday and it seems to be compact enough to carry comfortably. I personally don't care for any sort of laser as it makes it easier for someone to locate you in the dark.

I have carried a Ruger LCP for a couple of years now. No matter which you go with if you pocket carry like I have been you'll need to wipe it down frequently, I do it every evening with Rem wipes.

g36c assault rifle, carry it openly, sling over shoulder with a strap, no need to hide that I'm not playing here,
comes with a 1.5x scope which is my favorite as they don't have a chance to shoot you first.

No, not all thieves come unarmed.

+1 on the Ruger LCP.... that's what I've had for about 5 years. Stays out of the way.

After todays incident in Conn I'm getting my CWP and will be carrying soon. I hope I never have to, but let one of these crazies get near me and he had better hope he gets me first. I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and today just made my mind up for me.
