    Scrubs and carrying

    I am thinking about changing my store uniform to black scrubs. They are inexpensive and very comfortable. Since I do repairs I get to play on the whole doctor thing. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone else here wears scrubs on a regular basis and conceals? I am pretty sure that my Supertuck weighed down with my Glock 27 isn't going to work with the traditional scrub pants. I am afraid that I am probably going to have to get something smaller and pocket carry. Any thoughts?

    I wear scrubs (hospital-issue green) on a regular basis and can't find any way to pocket carry my S&W 642 and have it not look like a 2 pound banana in my back pocket. And that's with a Mika holster.

    Good luck playing on the doctor thing and finding a way to carry!

    When I carry in scrubs I just use clip on suspenders to hold the scrub pants up.
    Or you can get elastic waist band scrubs

    Most scrub pants only have 1 rear pocket and no belt loops. pants are held up by cord in waistband. There are no front pockets for pocket carry of a pistol.

    You'll probably need a smart carry. See: SmartCarry concealed holster review | Gibberish Is My Native Language

    Ask Bruce Willis how to use duct tape properly. The first Die Hard movie is still one of my favorites.

    a belly band would work. there would be no weight on the pants.

    Can you say "Belly Band"?

    Galco Belly Band Holster

    Should be the ticket under the loose fitting scrub top

    And it could make you look slimmer and trimmer to boot

    Florida wouldn't allow carry in the hospitals, but a KelTec .380 would easliy stay in a SOB holster...I use that mode at the gym to walk the tread mill...it easliy stays in place. You could also put a P-3AT in a front pocket.

    When I'm working in scrubs I usually end up with an ankle holster for my Kel-Tec .380.
    Trying to conceal it any other way has always been very obvious.

    I'd go with a KelTec equipped with their clip.

    Smartcarry is the obvious answer here.

    Spoken like someone who hasn't seen the newer models of scrubs

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
