    I'm starting at a school in a couple of months that requires that I wear scrubs every day. Because they don't allow weapons on campus I'll have to leave my piece in the car each day so I need a gun and holster that are small enough to not drag my scrubs down, is quick to remove the whole rig, and is at least a 9mm. Any ideas?

    Interesting, I'd never even thought about trying that. That wouldn't be too bad with my p3at, but I'm looking for something a big bigger.

    There are undershirts that have a holster built in.

    Sounds like a belly band holster is what you need with one of the small, compact 9s like the PM9 or the new Ruger LC9.

    Look into the 5.11 holster shirts. The shirt is made of a material similar to under armor and the holsters run under the armpits. I have three of the shirts and I can completely conceal a full size Beretta 92 under any shirt. The shirts are very form fitting and really hold whatever is in the holsters tight against your body. I wear the shirts all day without any discomfort.

    Doctor friend had the same dilemma. He used the pouch holster that carries below the waistline in front of your jewels. Worked for him.

    Can you change into your scrubs after you get there?

    I've had good luck with a Kahr P9 or CW9 in a belly band. Easy on and off, as well as almost unlimited carry positions

    I work in scrubs 4 days a week and carry a scandium j-frame in an ankle holster. Works great, stays well concealed, easier to access than most people think.

    I also have a P3at, used to carry IWB using the pocket clip, it's light enough that it doesn't drag scrub pants down.

    1911 Commander in a Tommy's Gun Pack. Easy on. Easy off.

    Ankle rig gets my vote as I have carried MANY different guns in that manner.

    They were primarily carried as a BUG.

    But they worked and I was armed and concealed at all times.

    S&W 640-1, Glock 23, S&W 442, Kahr PM40, Rohrbaugh R-9, just to give you a smattering of the few I have carried

    I'm in scrubs at work and on the go or on my feet most of the time. I hate to say it but I've given up carrying at work....the ankle holster rides to low or works its way down and I hate those hot too wear, get gross after awhile holsters like the smart carry or belly band.
    I carry in, in my back-pack, locker it during my shift, then carry out in the back-pack.

    Top untucked, G27 in a kydex IWB on a cheap UTG 2" belt works for me. YMMV.

    Scrubs seem to me to be one of the few situations where you can get away with fanny pack carry and not come off looking as a dweeb or Japanese tourist.

    I am also in scrubs 5-6 days a week, usually 12 hours per day. I have not carried in scrubs but probably will try one of the undershirt holsters in the future.

    Remora; if your scrubs have a drawstring (works well for me with drawstring gym shorts):

    suggestion
    being the scifi nerd i am, from the series called FIREFLY a guy named Jane used medical tape(the stuff used to hold guass in place) to hold a gun to his side

    not something to do every day, but it would work until you had a more perminate solution
    as far as the gun goes, my personal favorite gun of all time is a ppk, it will pretty much fit what ever role you need a small gun to fit

    I have a 5:11 shirt and it is not as comfortable as the Kangaroo rig...which is adjustable

    I will be very jealous if you get to have the following conversation:

    Who Ever: Nice nurse out fit, guy.

    Blarelli: These are O.R. scrubs.

    Who Ever: Oh, are they?
