    Potty Problem...

    Ok, folks. This may come off as "bathroom humor" but not intentionally. Sooo, seriously, when it's time to do your business, especially in a public facility, what do you do with your firearm? Set it on the floor? (ugh). Grasp it firmly? Etc. It sure gets dicey when your belt no longer holds the gun to your side. Seems like more than once it does a ninety degree shift while your heart jumps up to your throat.

    I draw mine as I drop my drawers, and leave it in the bunched-up shorts and trou around my ankles so it's not easily visible to anyone outside the stall. Depending on your dexterity, when it's time to stand up you can either hold the piece in one hand, or clamp firmly under one armpit (as I do) so you have the use of 1.5 hands to get things back into place.

    I don't really do anything differently than I would if I didn't have a gun. I don't understand what issue there is.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    yeah im confused about it too, i always just took the gun off and set it somewhere not visible outside the stall, when done reholster not hard. the trick is doing this with a duty belt on fully loaded, any suggestions other than that main hook for what to do with my duty belt?

    note, while on duty i try my best to use those places with the bathrooms made for only one occupant with a closing locking full door and enclosed sink and toliet faciliy so i have complete privacy

    I let it stay on my belt, and just make sure it doesn't flip over. Never really a problem so far. I keep the belt and waist of the pants (and gun) up, resting on knees.

    The firearm and holster either remain in place on knees, or they are removed (clip holster) and shoved into a pants or coat pocket for the duration of the business at hand. The weapon NEVER leaves my person.

    Just flip the waist band of your undies over the grip of the gun to hold it upright and shield it from view.
