    On the first of June I'll be working as a waiter in my sister's in law cafe. I have to wear an uniform (kakhis and tucked shirt.) I've been looking for a pocket carry piece in several gun shops. I'm thinking of a SW 642 for pocket carry, but I have to be sure that it won't print that much. I would like to wear the piece in jeans too, so no printing is a must. Gun shops should have mirrors! :banghead: All the gun shops employes said: "sure it doesn't print," I know they just want to sell.

    If you want the ultimate in non-printing get a P32 or P3AT with a good holster.

    I'd post a pic but you wouldn't be able to tell that I was carrying anything.

    Sometimes if you want to be uber-discreet you can even carry under your wallet...

    What Mr Mysterious said, get a Kel Tec. I carry a P3AT pretty much constantly and it is nigh unto invisible when in my pocket. I also have slipped it in behind my wallet so the shape is broken up even farther.

    if you buy good pocket holster ,like a kramer, you won't have any problems with a 642 in your pocket.

    Is this the actual size of it?

    I think it kind of depends on what size computer monitor you have. On my 17-inch at work, it looks big. Maybe to someone on 12-inch screened laptop it would look closer to real size.

    On my 14.1" LCD screen that is EXACTLY the size of my P3AT.

    This pic offers a better size reference. I really like the features and reviews so far have been great. The only problem is that no gun shop around here keep them in stock. :banghead: They are special order items, up to 2 weeks delivery time + paper work.

    But they are worth it...they are pretty fun to shoot, and suprisingly accurate for a gun that weighs in under a pound.

    I have 2 P3AT's....Depending on what kind of pocket holster you use, a p3AT shouldnt print..."buldge" yea, but not print...

    What I would suggest as far as the 640 is concerned is a pocket holster with an anti-print panel attached..

    At K&D Holsters, we can make a holster for you that has a detachable anti-print panel for either the 642 or the P3AT. It's our 2n1 convertible model, and is by far our most popular style of holster. I carry my P3AT in one of our 2n1 holsters, with the panel attached, in the front pocket of my jeans. I have no problem extracting my gun, as the panel flexes away from the holster itself when I reach in and I can get a full grip on the gun. It just looks like I'm carrying a wallet in my front pocket. The anti-print panel just snaps on and off, allowing you to choose which way you want to carry. Our website is www.kdholsters.com .

    Why increase the bulk of the Kel-tec with a holster? It's as near perfection as possible why ruin it?

    Another trick is to slide a suitably shaped piece of cardboard between your holster and the outer fabric of your pocket.

    Telewinz; a holster will help keep dust bunnies and other trash out of the gun, as well as avoiding the possibility of snags. Last, but not least, a holster will keep the gun from wearing holes in your pockets.

    Ditto Ala Dan's Walther. My PPK/S lays nice and flat. Sorry I can't post a pic.
    BTW, thanks, Ala Dan, for posting the pic sans apron. :uhoh:

    Gracias for the replies and pics so far.

    Now I have a new dilema: Kahr's PM9 or Kel Tec P3AT. BTW, I opted to work as a delivery man instead of waiter.

    Kel Tec P3AT

    Get the Kel Tec P 3 AT, 380 7 shot, its .77 inch thick and if you check out the "Smart Carry" website you will find a holster that fits under anything, anytime , anysize gun you want to carry. For the $ and reliability, accuracy and stopping power a 380 Gold Dot hollowpoint is plenty good enough with couple center of mass hits. check out those holsters, for $49.50 they can't be beat and get a larger size for when you're going into "hostile" territory, you can saftey pin it downsized for the Kel Tec for everyday wear and still have the bigger gun option free.
    most states do not allow even a CCW golder to carry one loose in the pocket, most require some type of holster plus you won't get a "Lint" failure to feed or fire in a holster.
