    Droppin' Your Pants..

    Question #1.
    I haven't encountered this problem yet but I'm sure I will. So, you're at McDonalds and you have to visit the restroom. There's those crappy doors that you see anyone's feet under and you just came up with your first reason to own a shoulder rig. What do you do?

    Question #2.
    In WA it's legal to carry in a restaurant that serves liquor provided you're not seated in an area only open to those 21 & over (the bar). Obviously an establishment that is strictly a bar is off limits. Say you're in mixed company where no one knows you're carrying and someone wants to stop in for a drink. What do you say?

    Things I do:
    1. I try to avoid public restrooms all together.
    2. If possible shoot for the handicap stahl
    3. I unholster and keep my gun in hand. When the dead is done I place her somewhere safe till I can reholster and get out of dodge.

    I don't really worry about it. Just drop my pants and do what I have to do. Who cares if someone notices.

    When using this method, one has to be very careful when getting dressed again, I used to do this until I flipped my handgun on the floor of my last job when the grip got caught up in the let of the boxers.

    That is a very distinct sound, even for a polymer frame .

    Well, you can just say "no," or tell them to go ahead while you make a call or check your tire pressure (whatever), you'll meet them inside; or, when you get to the door of said pub, say something like, "Oops, I need to go back to the car to get/do/I forgot something."

    Or, you could just grumble something like, "*%$* anti-self defense laws... I need to lock my gun in my car before I go in there." Which would likely open the door for lively conversation once you're inside.
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    I agree with another poster in that I don't much care if someone may catch a glimpse of my gun. Granted, I live in Arizona where carrying a gun is about as common as a pocket clip knife. Its amazing how our new gun law totally changed public perception towards seeing a gun.

    The best solution is place it in the Underwear Hammock " when you drop your drawers your underwear forms the perfect hammock to place your weapon in. Problem solved!!!

    I say "No, thanks. I don't like bars; there are too many violent incidents because of the drunk people there, and I still have to drive home so I'd rather not drink. If you'd like to go to a restaurant and grab a bite to eat as well as a drink, I'm up for that."

    If the group decides they want to go to a bar, I say "Have nice night. See you later!" and leave.

    For question 1, in a kind of restroom like that and I am wearing a strong side belt holster, I would first remove my holster containing my pistol in it and place it inside my pants or I would place it somewhere in the stall where it cannot be noticed. This also goes to show why I also use the horizontal shoulder holster as annother option as I do not have to worry about removing that when seated in the toilet.

    For question #2, I would treat it the same way as in any public restroom. As for now in my state, we can carry concealed as long as we have a permit and we don't drink alcohol. Before that, I generally avoid establishments that serve alcohol or if I have to go out w/ friends and family, I would have to leave my carry pistol in the car.
