    I have worked in hospitals for over 30 years. Most do not allow concealed carry, but then again most do not check. I have tried just about everything from one time or another. The most comfortable, all day carry is the Smart Carry with a Kahr PM9/Laserguard. It has enough so as not to be a mouse, and is flat enough to hide well under scrub pants. Tee Shirt holsters, shoulder holsters for under the shirt, belly bands, etc. are easily "made" from a friendly hug. The Smart Carry is usually "safe".

    Not allowed to carry a knife? Must be a real bugger for the doctors to perform surgery without scalpels......

    I presume that he is an ER doc since I cannot imagine an OB/GYN, surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist or critical care doctor being at risk of getting shot. Even if he were armed what does he expect to do? Kill a patient who he is trying to save because the person is drunk and belligerent? Does he expect the (name the game) posse to shoot everyone?

    He is better off getting a lightweight bullet proof vest and getting a nonlethal weapon like Kimber's Pepper spray apparatus, a taser or stun gun. Better yet, he can arm himself with a syringe of succinylcholine (paralytic) and have fun putting a breathing tube down the idiot's airway. I have seen that done in some ERs of level 1 trauma centers. 2 expletives and you've bought yourself an intimate moment with a ventilator.

    Everybody is always at risk of getting shot.

    Bullet "proof" isn't and can be vulnerable to knife attacks.

    You don't want to be spraying OC all over an ER (or anywhere else in a hospital) where you're likely to contaminate everyone there and have patients who's breathing may already be compromised due to illness.

    You don't want to use tasers and stun guns around oxygen.

    And the only time anyone is going to use succs to "take down" a beligerent or combative person is on TV or in the movies.

    Is he going to work in a hospital in Detroit?

    If so, he will NOT be ble to carry at all.

    Hospitals are one of Michigan's Pistol Free Zones.

    Is he moving to Detroit itself, or a suburb?

    There are many beauyiful and very safe areas just outside of Detroit,

    Also, a .45 Sig in a Smart Carry is going to make him mighty popular with the ladies cause you can't hide a .45 round in scrubs, let alone a gun!

    Where do you buy your scrubs, Wal Mart?

    Yeah cause that wouldn't get your license or your cert pulled or anything like that.

    I hope you have good malpractice insurance

    Michigan Hospitals

    Michigan hospitals are weapons free zones. It is against the law to conceal carry in one.

    But, with a CPL, you can open carry. Not sure a Dr. would be able to do that though...

    First of all, no disrespect intended, but your argument is what the anti's use. "The world is safe, no one needs a gun." While he may be safe while at work in the hospital, how about walking to his car early in the morning or late at night? Or when someone comes in to finish off their gunshot wound victim, as often happens in gang violence? Or when someone goes crazy on him because he had to tell them that their wife or kid just passed away?

    uncballzer congrats on graduation...I got 3 more years to go, if I survive the process and both USMLEs...

    I know a dr that got fired for carrying-in the office. He was an employee of a system-hospital/office.

    Fanny Pack

    I worked in a large trauma center for a number of years, and quite a few of my coworkers (both doctors and nurses) carried their trauma supplies in a fanny pack. I think you could successfully CC that way without raising suspicions. Besides, a scrub top almost completely covers a fanny pack.
