    I went to the doc for the first time since I started carrying yesterday.

    The first nurse asked me to take off my jacket so she could take my blood pressure. I said, "Just so it doesn't surprise you...I'm wearing a pistol on my belt."

    "Oh, ok. Thanks for the warning."

    That was that...with her.

    Then the PA comes in (I didn't need or really want to see the real Doc). She needs me to take my jacket off again, to listen to my chest. I give her the same heads-up.

    "Oh, no problem. You're not the first person with one to come in here."

    I replied, "I figured I probably wasn't."

    Then she says, "Well, I promise not to reach for it and pull it out."

    I chuckled and said, "Ok, then I won't either."

    She laughed and that was that.

    Perfect.

    Nice. Now only if EVERYONE wouldn't freak out at the sight of anything that resembles a pistol.

    But then your clever antigun doctor says you really, really need to have your prostate checked.

    That gives new meaning to turn your head and cough.

    Hopefully, the PA would handle that too. She has small hands.

    Last time I had to go to the doctors office I carried. I didn't say anything, and when the doctor checked my breathing did not mention the Glock. That guy is my favorite doctor.

    Would you have mentioned it if necessary? (such as in mz's situation).

    Not that I carry on base but cars have good hiding spots for pistol-size objects. I would never do that. :) Better in the car than across town, right?

    I don't really think it was necessary in my situation to tell anyone about it. I'd rather not say anything and if it is a problem for them I can ask for a different doctor, put it in the car, or go to a different doctors office.

    A buddy of mine has a woman doc.

    He says, when getting the old prostate checked, it's much better to look down and see small blue pumps than large black wingtips...

    The more I open carry the more I realize that it is not that big a deal in this state.

    Now if we could only get larryg (other larryg) to test out his airport open carry... :twisted:

    Growing old ain't for sissies. :lol:

    I'm only 35, and I got to take an ambulance ride this past weekend. I'm finding I'm turning into my father much sooner than I expected. :lol:
