    Dr. Examination, he missed my Sig P220

    When I go to the Dr and am expecting some kind of examination I put both my carries in Safepackers in my briefcase (Maxpedition Operator). This time I was with my wife and the doc was just going to go over my blood levels so I did not disarm.

    He surprised me, some of the levels had changed so he wanted to do an examination. I made the off comment that I wasn't really prepared for that. Went right over his head, but my wife got it. He had me on the table laying down and he's poking and prodding all over my belly.

    He got done and never touched the gun. He came right up to it a few times but stopped short. Then he wanted a weight, so we went to the scale and I'm doing some quick math (which I need to check) and told him he needed to shave off at least 7lbs.

    He looked at me and asked, "Are you packing"? I said yeah. He looked a little surprised and then told me to just wear the same guns next time I come in to get weighed.

    In case you're wondering, I had my SP101 2" .357 in my front left pocket. The Sig P220 was right side OWB in a Bluegrass holster. I was wearing Woolrich light tactical pants (look like any other cargo pant, not uncommon at all) and finally a Wilderness Tactical Sonoran shirt.

    Sheep do not notice much outside of what they are looking for. He knows I'm a gun person but has never actually seen one on me. He still hasn't.

    You shouldn't have said anything, then next time you would have "lost" 7 lbs.

    I see you're point but then he'd expect to see that much loss each time I come in. I only have so many removable parts

    If I may ask, what kind of pocket holster do you use for your SP101?

    Assumptions are dangerous.

    We've talked some before. He's not a gun person, but doesn't mind as long as they are handled and stored safely. I've known him and his family (his dad is a Dr. and mom is the office nurse) since about '94. We met them when they were the medical personnel at a camp ministry we were involved in.

    I've asked him several point blank questions about the AMA and anti gun stuff. He said he said since he's not a pediatrician he doesn't follow that end of it (Dr.'s asking kids about guns at home).

    I know he doesn't shoot or carry, I do regularly make the offer to take him shooting. Hopefully someday he'll take me up on it. He has asked some safety questions so I've been able to bust a few myths for him.

    Desantis Nemesis. I like it, it breaks up the form of the gun. In tighter pants (dress slacks, shallower pockets) you can make out the outline if you know what you're looking at. In my regular attire it just blends in and looks like a bunch of keys or something.

    Sometimes when I get in the van I have to readjust it because it'll slide down and annoy me. A quick adjustment and it's fine.

    Thumbs up

    I found that if you notify the nurse or doctor before an exam, they treat it like no big deal. Your probably not the only person that they've seen with a gun their office.
