Wow, I had not noticed all of the responses. Thanks to all who have added their input.
I'm thinking that the thinnest .45 he can get is going to be something like the Kimber Ultra Carry II.. No? I compared it to the Sig P250 Subcompact Nitron, and it seems to be quite thinner, thus easier to conceal... ? Thoughts on the comparison?
I'm going to call my SIL here in a minute and get more info about what he will be doing exactly, and where they will be living. I'll update with some specifics sometime tonight.
Again, thank you for your input.
Thanks for all the great replys! I've relayed much of info back to my SIL, and asked her to get him talking about his thoughts on an everyday carry system.. I heard back today that after talking it over, he is thinking of ankle carrying a smaller gun during work hours, and then carrying the P250 outside of work.. Or something like that.. Lucky SOB is going to get 2 guns out this whole thing.
So, now we'll start talking revolvers with him ;)
Pretty sure i'm now in love with the Kimber UC II after handling it though..
I just hope he doesn't get caught carrying. If he does he will probably lose his job, his permit, and depending on if it is classified by the state as a felony, his right to even own a gun.

i think one could certainly carry a 3" 1911 in a smart carry with scrubs.
yes. bad things happen at hospitals. few weeks ago a man shot three ladies just outside a hospital in knoxville. was posted on here.
as mentioned a million times above, its illegal to carry in a hospital in MI. if you werent in michigan, most likely at a minimum the hospital would have a policy against it. i certainly cant suggest disobeying a law. if ur in detroit, dont be carrying in a hospital. there are other legal options you have for defense, use those.

The Doctor doesn't carry. He has his sonic screwdriver.

Just getting caught up on the thread here.... If hospital carry is indeed "against the law" where ever he ends up then make sure he is well aware, multiple people have already mentioned it, but it is important, even if it is a stupid law/prohibition.
Have 1 year left of med school myself and just can't see any real easy way of carrying with srubs, J-frame in ankle holster seems the best option to me. Scrub pants tie at the waist, so you're gonna have to undo that to get to anything underneath. Better practice 1 hand technique with the other hand holding up the pants. :)
Something else I'd suggest is see about getting some sort of pocket/holster sewn into the inside of his whitecoat. I've seen coats with fairly large pockets inside and shouldn't be too hard to adapt that to hold most handguns.
Another option is off-body carry in a planner or something. With the coat and planner he just has to be anal about not letting those get out of his control, and if he's like most other docs out there, his day can get crazy, he can get stressed and leave a coat or other item behind...
Of course this is all mute if it's illegal there, stupid as it may be we do have to follow it and if that's the case then focus energy on changing it.
