Your Concealment Context - Concealed Carry in Scrubs Pt 1

In Part 1, we cover how to decide if carrying a gun is the right choice, how to weigh the consequences of carrying a gun at work, and how to determine how much concealment you need to avoid a negative outcome.

This series is a complete guide to carrying a concealed firearm in scrubs, from risk assessment to holster features to visual and social camouflage tips. While health care settings are the primary focus, the challenges of beltless carry are universal. If you’re having problems concealing your gun, you’ll find tips, troubleshooting, and general advice for making concealed carry easier and more comfortable. While we focus mainly on appendix carry, many of the tips are useful for any carry position.

This advice is brand and holster agnostic – it’s about knowledge, not gear. Most of the demos are done with the PHLster Enigma, but once you learn the physics principles of concealment, you can use that knowledge to improve your concealment with whatever system you choose.

Carry Position, Concealment Features, Comfort - Concealed Carry in Scrubs Pt 2

Part 2 covers how to find the best place on your body for appendix carry comfort and concealment. How do you sit? Find out how to position your holster so you have a full range of motion. We’ll also cover what causes printing, how concealment features like wings and wedges work (and how to tell what you need), how to find your “sweet spot” for optimum concealment, and how to use your body’s natural shapes to your advantage.
