Your Doctor's Expertise

Doctors in North Carolina are being asked to judge their patients competency to carry a concealed weapon. No word as to whether this is being done in other states, but my doctor has never asked to see any of my match targets or my finish position at the IDPA matches.

This of course brings up the question of which is better; Someone who finishes low in a competition or someone who hasn't fired their gun since they got their permit.

The requests put the doctors in a bad position as they stand to get sued either way. I wonder if there's a box that can be checked stating that firearms usage is not within a doctors area of expertise? The overall approval rate is running about 80% but no word as to what criteria are being used.
