    Trip to my local clinic kinda funny i guess!!

    ok well i finally gave in. I've been sick for like 3 weeks now. It goes and comes. Chest congestion with cough.cough goes away but i cant breath. So im getting tired of hearing the wife say she dosent feel sorry for me cuz i wont go see the DOC. So off tho the clinic i go due to my Dr. being on vacation.

    Normal check-in procedures, check vitals all the good stuff. Dr. then tells me i need a chest x-ray. No biggie. So i walk in to x-ray room and x-ray tech tells me to take my shirt off. Im soo out of it ,i began to take my shirt off and Dough im carrying!!! Totaly forget. I start to panic a lil. ive been carrying for couple of months now and im very confident but for some reason this freaked me out. I tell the tech that i cant take off my shirt. She looks at me funny. At this time im kinda getting the jitters. She asks why. And the words dont come out!! im like ugh ugh ugh all the while shes looking at me like hurry up its time to go.

    I finally sorta mumble under my breath and not in so many words that im carrying a concealed weapon. the tech looks at me and says ok wheres it at? so i kinda turn to the side and point. She says nope gotta take it off or it will come out on the x-ray. You can remove your shirt and gun and put them on exam table.I was like thats it ,your not gonna freak out and yell HES GOT A GUN!! So i did carefully and took the x-ray.

    All in all good trip to the clinic i guess. i thanked the tech for not tripping out. I think i was more freaked!!

    A gun showing up on your x-rays!

    I can imagine that x-ray getting published somewhere in an anti-gun medical story.

    Glad the tech didn't make a big deal about it.

    Where did they take X-rays that you could carry? Most of the time that is done in the hospital and you cannot carry there???

    Glad no one went screaming out of the room.
    It's a pleasant experience when the nurse or doctor understands and respects your right to SD.
    I've even had a few begin to discuss guns...what I had, what he had, etc., enjoyable experience.

    I can see it now someone CC SOB doc looks at the x-ray and just says "well thats definatly deep concealment, but I don't know how quick he could access the gun in his colon."

    Our hospital won't let me carry, but my wife clinic doesn't have any signs up. You've gave me a great Idea, I'm going to have her X-ray my 9c for my sig pic.

    Oh and she just told me she's never had anyone wear a gun into the rad room...LOL

    However.com her co-worker X-rayed a guy this week, the pt said "don't worry I'm not going to shoot you." LOL


    The clinic has budgeted for bulletproof glass in the reception are and access control and cameras for the whole clinic using some of the money Barry has gave them.

    Glad it turned out ok. Me, when I examine a pt, and find that he has a dun, I laugh and show him mine!

    It was an urgent care/walk in clinic on FM 1960/Red Oak Dr.
    My normal Doc is on vacation, and I needed something so I could breath better. The tech even went as far as sayin she liked to shoot.

    Well, Sir, your gun appears healthy. You are good to go.

    When I go to the Dr. I have to tell them how much to subtract on my weight due to the guns I'm carrying.
