    Got made by my Doctor today

    On my last visit, the nurse asked me to take off my coat to get an accurate weight. OK. My PT145 is OWB. I ask, "So is there anything else you want me to take off?" She says no. Hmmm....

    Once we are in the room, she says to just put it under my coat on the chair. Fine. Holster still visible.

    Today I just pushed the weapon back towards my spine. Sure enough, the Doc wants me to lift my sweater to listen to breath sounds. Actually, he starts pulling it up himself. Not a word, not a flinch, no change in demeanor. Cool.

    It shouldn't be a surprise that a doctor might want to look you over, he is supposed to check on your health ,right?

    I hate it when the doctor has to actually touch me...the bill always goes up another $500...
    I have not disclosed my CCW to my present doctor...I wrap it in a coat or shirt between the first nurse and final doctor visits.

    I don't know why anyone would carry inside the Dr's office and think they are not subject to being touched or examined. I don't know the area your Dr's office is in but I do not feel I need to carry into his office. If I did I would carry in a coat pocket or something.

    Yeah but this was a second followup visit to check some numbers. And you would be surprised how many Doctors just Q&A without a physical exam on followups. Besides, if he had a cow it wouldn't affect me. There's other Doctors in this world.

    I don't feel the need to carry at WalMart, Sears or Lowes. Heck I don't feel the need to carry at home. But I do, just in case my ESP/precognition isn't working.

    What would be awkward is a SmartCarry and a hernia check .

    What also would be awkward is if he tells you that you are shooting "blanks"

    Funny thing with me, all my doctors carry as well. ha ha. They ask more about firearms then health. Just kidding.... We do have good discussions on what the latest carry guns are, and if I have shot them.

    My doctor is at the VA so there is no way I can carry in a federal building.

    Which brings up an interesting question. Wondering what the legal technicalities would be with a licensed CCW carrying into a VA outpatient clinic? Is it considered a government building? Most are doctor's who have contracted to do the VA exams, etc.
