    I just do the normal carry. You always chat with the doc before he does any hands on stuff. When you change just place the firearm in your purse - oh I mean briefcase for you guys.

    Easy.

    I leave it in the car since the building is posted... I guess they are afraid patients will be like...




    Uh...Doc... that isn't a tumor.... that is my .45




    Doc: You need to loose some weight to be healthier

    *patient stands up before taking off belt and holster*

    Patient: Well... that's about 5lbs right there!
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    All of my Doc's, and any medical staff that provide actual medical care to me, know I carry.
    It's not an issue.

    Unfortunately all medical facilities here in North Carolina are off limits for carry, I just lock it up in the truck.

    My building for the doctor is posted, Indiana signs have no legal weight, i tuck my Bersa in my pocket and walk on in. One of the docs i see commented on it and said that he was worried that I had a lead deficiency and needed to start carrying a gun with a bigger magazine to correct this deficiency. LOL. I asked how he knew, and he handed me one of my spare mags that fell out of my pocket. He said don't worry about it, I'd pack heat in this area too, just waiting on my paperwork to clear. He then cautioned me to keep it hidden like I had it so it wasn't visible as it made him feel better to have legally armed patients in a bad neighborhood.

    It really gives me special attention when I go in for my colonoscopies and prostrate checks. They take extra care to be gentle!

    I carry in there, but put it in the inside pocket to my jacket. That way it's still completely unnoticeable, and in case he needs to see any certain areas/take particular pieces of clothing off he still won't see it.

    What do you do with your gun when you have a doctor app?
    Carry as normal. Even if disrobing or going through procedures, there are places to secure the clothes and personals. But unless I'm to be drugged and driven to/from, merely seeing a doctor doesn't seem sufficient cause to disarm. Works for me. YMMV.

    My doc's office is in a hospital complex so it is off limits by law. The gun and mags stay in the truck but I don't bother taking off the holster and mag holster. You should have seen the doc's eyes the first time he saw the empty holster. I think he thought the holster was going to jump off my belt and shoot him. He didn't say anything, but his eyes were as big as saucers.

    Carry as usual. Thursday I had an appointment to have some minor surgury. Infact it was minor enough that all I had to take off were my glasses. After getting stitched up and patched up I walked out with mine still tucked neatly away. That's why I like MO laws, there was a HUGE sign on the door but I walked right on in.
    It's not the destination, it's the journey.

    Some facility are posted but like a few states in Utah the signs carry no weight. Went in Thursday about an infected blister on my toe. Doc decided I needed a shot in the rear, nurse came in, I dropped my pants and got the shot. All the time my pistol was on my belt laying inside my pants. Repeated Friday no problems nothing said.

    First time I went to the oncologist office after surgery, the Sig was in my owb. He saw it as he checked my stomach stitches, but made no comment about it. Since then, when I go for my three month checkups, I take a light briefcase. After checking in at the desk, I use the restroom and put both the pistol and mag pouches in the briefcase. Not to keep the doc from seeing, but because I don't want the extra five pounds on my chart. Vain I guess, but that's what I do.
