    Another at the doctor story (good)

    I went to see a naturopath for my low back pain. After the initial consultation, see asks me to empty my pockets before starting to work on me.

    So into the basket go my keys...wallet...OC...pocket knife...spare mag...belt (Gun was in back pack.)

    Her eyes sort of bulged a bit then she said, "OK, on the table" and proceed to work on my low back.

    Now, I know for a fact that her husband has his concealed permit, I suspect she has hers, she bought him an LCP for Christmas last year because he needed a pocket gun. I guess, she was just not expecting a fully loaded patient.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    After emptying 10 pounds of stuff from your pockets, she might have discovered the source of your back pain.

    My doctor would have no problem with it, we both shoot at the same range, but here in North Carolina you can not carry in any kind of medical faclity.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    I always wondered if anyone carried a backup gun for their backup gun. Now I know!

    I'm not quite sure that's accurate:

    Although a person may have a permit to carry a concealed weapon, permittees are not
    authorized to carry the permitted weapon anywhere they desire. The weapon may not be
    carried in the following areas:

    1. any area prohibited by N.C.G.S. 14-269.3, 14-269.4, 14-277.2, or 120-32.1. (school grounds, areas where alcohol is sold and consumed, state property, legislative buildings, and public gatherings, such as parades);

    2. any area prohibited by 18 USC 922 or any other federal law;

    3. any law enforcement agency or correctional facility;

    4. a building housing only state or federal offices;

    5. an office of the state or federal government that is not located in a building exclusively occupied by the state or federal government;

    6. a financial institution; or

    7. any premises, except state owned rest areas or stops along the highways, where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice, or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises.

    (N.C. Gen. Stat. 14-415.11(c))
    Source: http://www.ncsheriffs.org/images/200...Laws%20Pub.pdf

    There's also the question of whether an office of an alternative medicine practitioner would qualify as a "medical office", but according to the law, it seems that if it's not posted, you can legally carry (assuming other factors don't contribute (i.e. a medical center on a university campus))

    I just moved from NC. I believe you are mistaken on this point.

    I was working on a patient recently and as I reclined the chair back his p32 slipped out of his pocket and onto the floor (sweet pants and kel-tec slide clip)...he was shocked and his face turned white. I told him "Don't let the bow-tie fool you need to buy pocket holster and you need to be more cognizant about your carry gun falling out of your pants. By-the-way, I also hope you fluff-and-buffed your kel-tec and your using FMJ." I then safely placed the gun on counter in a safe direction.

    Yes...it happens to us too!

    I'd have looked at you weird for carrying 3 Glocks too. But hey, to each their own.
