    Reason I even want to carry in the first place is because the hospital where I am working is in sh*tville central. They have a "no firearms" sign on the entrance, but that doesn't mean sh*t to a drug addict or felon. Our "security" team consists of 6, middle-aged, overweight men (and 1 woman). They carry a walkie talkie and wear blue polos and black tactical pants. No cuffs. No baton. No tazer. No mace. No gun....no security. It's a joke. Needless to say, anyone and everyone in the hospital is a sitting duck for a crazed person intent on hurting others.
    It would definitely be a deterrent. "Crazy doctor has an AK... I'm not messing with him". Or, if they are dumb enough to mess with you, you've got 30rnds of 7.62X34 from a rifle to change their minds.

    But, maybe you could try an ankle holster? Since most doctors I've dealt with lately spend most of their time in a room with me on a stool/seat of some sort- it would still come easily enough to hand. Or, if they place is held up, they'll probably make you get on the floor anyway... "Ok, ok- I'm getting dow.." BANGBANG!! Not a 'perfect' plan, but how many SD plans are 'perfect'?

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    The real question is... "What happens if they find out that it is a GUN?"

    Do you get canned, arrested, frowned upon???

    If the answer is the latter, I'd tell them to screw off. If one of the former, maybe reassess what you're doing.

    I am a Ninja and can make a weapon out of just about anything. I once killed a raccoon with a well place rapidly thrown booger from my own nose!

    I suggest you find your local Ninja training facility and start getting knowledge in the art or the craft. Though a true Ninja is an invisible Ninja because real Ninjas are so stealthy they cannot be seen. So if you do find a Ninja training facility it is probably not a good one considering you have found it.

    So I guess you are SOL!

    All snark aside, you're doing it wrong. Concealed carry doesn't mean big, noticable gun bulge in a pants pocket. Your none-of-your-business response basically confirms to the guy you're packing, and he may get twitchy and dime you out.

    Also, double-check on the state and local laws for carry in a healthcare facility. Where I live, a medical professional can get charged with a felony after he/she is fired. Not sure what laws there are where you live.

    I'm going to go with the "medical device". That might be a little tricky since you work in a hospital, another doctor might ask for more details. So maybe give it the "personal... medical device" indicating clearly that you don't want to explain any further by your tone and drawn out/emphasised work "personal".

    Or you can tell him you don't trust the banks and that is where you keep your extra gold stash...

    Honestly, If people are noticing I'd say you need to do a better job concealing. If a gun is to large for a specific method of carry it's time to look at a different gun.

    Well, you could answer... "It's nunyas."

    "Nunyas?"

    "Yeah, nunyas darn bidness!"

    But dude, whatever medical perfession you in, you are risking your employabilty by carrying OTJ. If you just gotta carry a big gun in such circumstances, and gotta call folks who are funnin' ya gay... I gotta wonder what you compensatin' for.

    Some insist on dressing around the gun. I insist on the best combination of firearm and holster to be concealed with whatever I am wearing.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Definitely have to do a better job concealing, even if that means a different gun. It sounds like you are not permitted to carry at work, otherwise it wouldn't be an issue what your bulge was. I wouldn't carry where it wasn't permitted...and if it is permitted, tell him "It's a gun. What do you think it is?"

    On a different note, it sure is refreshing to see that other people besides me think that hybrid holsters are awful. I hate them. No, I don't want to carry at 8 or 8:30 where they're comfortable...I want to carry at 9:00! (lefty).
