    Using a public restroom while CC'ing.

    I'm not trying to gross anyone out. But just wondering if anyone has any tips on it. Most of the time I'm carrying I'll try to look for a stall with a door that locks. Often I'll actually remove my pistol and place it on a shelf, or on top of the toilet-paper dispenser, etc. That is because once my belt is undone and my pants unzipped, the weight of the pistol tends to make my pants want to fall to the ground. If that were to happen, there is a good chance somebody in a neighboring stall might actually see the gun.

    However, yesterday i was in a place that had only one stall and the darned door wouldn't lock. In fact, it wouldn't even stay closed. Fortunately, they had a urinal that was right up next to a wall on the far right. Since my gun is holstered on my right hip, I figured nobody would see it. But I had to put a lot more effort into holding my pants up. I have also at times been in places where the stalls were all occupied and I just had to wait for one of them to become available, rather than use an open urinal. People probably thought I was weird.

    It's not that hard to hold your pants up and use the urinal, I do it all the time.

    Umm, if you are just urinating, what is the issue? Without getting too crude, you simply unzip your fly, whip it out and go to town. Finish your business, reverse previous steps. If you have more pressing matters there is no issue if you carry IWB. If you carry OWB, give your gun side a little slack and flip the holster inside yor pants until you are finished.

    My best advise is to not get it on the gun. It can make it slippery. j/king

    If I run into your situation Ill unholster and drop it into the crouch of the pants. When your done, put everything back together.

    Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......

    You can hang your gun by the trigger guard on that clothing hook they give you in the stall. Careful though, you dont want to start a bump fire full-auto mag dump into the bathroom ceiling. Nothing worse than leaving a public restroom covered in sweat, with tons of ceiling tile plaster dusted all over you. And an empty gun.

    Sorry, I guess I haven't seen it discussed since I've been around here. I'll try to look more thoroughly through the threads in the future.
