    Amazing experience today.

    Went to a new physician today, but his office is inside a Wishard clinic in Indianapolis. This is not the main Wishard hospital on the IUPUI campus, and is not considered part of the campus. They are posted, no weapons of any kind allowed, I simply ignored the sign and carried IWB. During the course of my exam, my docter was checking my stomach out to see if my stomach problems were doing better. Then his hand went to poke my side and hit my gun, all he said was, might want to pocket carry next time, might be found by a nurse or someone else and they might get scared and call security. He didn't say anything about the policy of no weapons and let it go quickly. I then went by my office to pick up my check. Went and filled up like normal. I gotta back up a second, this requires backstory, I was very sick a week ago, and missed a few days of work, so the money that was going to buy my shotgun ended up going towards bills. I kind of just resigned myself to the thought of, I'm losing my shottie before I even have it, and let it go. Well, I bought a scratch off on a whim and won a hundred bucks!!!!! I ended up being able to get my shottie out of layaway too. So I found out my doctor is pro carry, and got a new shottie because of a scratch off ticket

    Doc visits are the perfect time to pocket carry. I learned this from a similar experience that didn't go as well as the OP.

    Why did you ignore the sign? Is the sign legitimate and you could get in trouble if found carrying a weapon? If so, it was not a wise choice.

    It sounds like he was in a place where the sign had little legal significance. They could ask him to leave if they saw the gun, but carrying there wasn't a crime.

    Sounds like a good day to me, but I'd be buying the big Lotto ticket today.

    Even the Doctor said it would possibly scare some of the nurses and they might call security if they saw the gun. Why take the chance? Leave the gun in your car, go get your physical and then leave. A few minutes without the gun won't hurt you and it could prevent a situation. Not everyone likes guns so don't put it in their face. It just gives fuel to the anti-gun folks.

    I know I am not the archetype ccw guy, but that's how I handled it last time I went to my physician. Could I have been whacked while getting my doodads hefted by the doctor? Sure. However, I'm not a press-to-test kinda guy - especially if there was a prominent sign. Here in NC, the sign can be used as a reason to prosecute you.

    Here in Indiana, signs mean nothing, I will be finding a more discrete method to carry in the doc's office, and yes, first thing tomorrow, i am getting a powerball ticket
