    Scrubs carry

    Gentlemen and Ladies:

    Requesting ideas for carrying a small pistol while the individual is wearing scrubs....no belt, scrubs are lightweight material. Scrub top is camp style; square cut on bottom, does not tuck in.

    Thank you.

    Ankle carry. You can carry much larger than youd think. Easily a J frame, or Glock 26. Or, of course, a .380 pocket pistol.

    Sounds like the perfect application for a "Smart Carry".

    Belly band is one. Open top scrub shirt might reveal it, though. SmartCarry is another and has its own belt and elastic so no problem with loose-fitting pants. One last suggestion would be http://www.pistolwear.com/ which has an elastic belt (like a SmartCarry) to hold itself up without a real belt plus it has a flap and magnetic button to hold it closed over the pocket with pistol in it. It's a slooow draw, IMO, but would solve your scrubs problem and allow carry without anything else to hold your weapon secure. It's marketed more for active wear but should be something to look at.

    A belly band type holster is going to be easier and faster to access than an ankle gun. I recommend: http://www.smartcarry.com/

    With ankle holsters, you have be aware if how easy it is to expose the gun. Sitting down, taking a weird step and other things pull your pant leg up and expose the gun if you're not careful. With the smart carry, the gun can rest below the belt line, so even if your shirt were lifted, the gun would still be concealed.

    If your scrubs have a drawstring;I suggest a Remora worn against the skin, not between the scrubs and your underwear. The drawstring and the adhesion of the Remora to your skin will holster the rig quite well.

    I would go with either ankle holster or belly band. I think they would be your best bet

    Another vote for the Smartcarry.

    Either that, or an AR over the shoulder.

    Can you wear a t-shirt under the scrub top? If so a "holster shirt" might be an option, i think 5.11 makes them.

    Depending on the environment you're entering, you might need to take great care to clean/disinfect your gun and rig regularly. A frequently-used bellyband or ankle holster is a great way to carry bacteria everywhere.

    Never tried one, but I think I would opt for the Smart Carry. A belly band was my first thought, but I think there would be too much chance to knock against things, or people, when you are leaning over patients. (I am assuming you are in the medical profession)

    I wear Dickies scrubs with a belt (they have belt loops) top untucked. This could give you some other options.

    I don't wear scrubs but I just ordered one of the Pistol Wear Trump Card holsters. That's a workable setup for anybody.

    I am assuming you are male but if you are female take a look at flashbang holsters. I have no idea if they work but its an idea. I also recommend a remora I wear one with gym shorts and walk my dog all the time. I prefer to wear an undershirt and sandwich it between the undershirt and shorts, I do not like the feel of the rermora material against my skin. I also sometimes wear my small frame revolver in an upside down shoulder holster, super comfortable and can conceal it under almost any baggy shirt but it does flop around some.
