    I'm selling my blood plasma tommorow with some friends. Gonna use it to buy some pants I need.

    Should I carry? They said there are some pretty skeevy people in the waiting room. I'm kinda nervous about carrying when I KNOW my shirt will be coming off.

    Don't have one. Only pistol I own is a Bersa Thunder and an Uncle Mikes IWB holster.

    Unless you have have big cargo pockets, skip it. It's likely to garner more trouble than it's worth.

    I'd say wear baggy pants with cargo pockets. Its what I do when I might be doing things that could expose the gun, just what ever you do put it in the higher up pockets and do not run or jog . . . just trust me here.

    Thats a very good idea. I'll just wear some khakis and put it in the cargo pocket. Thanks for the idea guys.

    just look in the mirror first and make sure you aren't printing too bad, otherwise you might have to have to throw some keys or something else in there to cover it up.

    Well guys, I just realized its a moot point.

    the clinic is in WV, a state that doesn't recognize my ohio CCL.

    Most medical areas are posted, anyway, if they're not covered by state law. It's up to you to know if signage carries the weight of law.

    I think the only states we recognize are VA and KY :coolugh:

    I was going to sell plasma once because my friends and I thought it was funny but my mom told me if I needed money that bad she'd just give me some :hsugh:

    lol, my buddies sell their plasma. The place they go is shady as fuck and their are homless bums everywhere.

    For those who have never done it, it takes like 2-3 hours your first time and most places are in the worst parts of town.

    lol no kidding

    I've done it once but my friends go once/twice a week. These places make money off bums and sell plasma to pharmacutical companies to make by products and shit like that.

    it's a very shady industry

    I don't think I'd be comfortable selling my plasma. I may have valuable DNA :noes:

    it's a very dirty place, we were going to sell it for drinking money and just to be able to say "zomg we sold our plasma lol!" but after getting there and realizing how little you get paid it (plus there was a huge line :ugh: ) we just said fuck it.
