    Zipper only if you can.

    If you can't, undo the belt to the longest setting and unbutton the top button of the pants. This will give you more room with out having the pants fall down.

    1. Don't undo the button.
    or
    2. www.perrysuspenders.com

    Zipper for #1 - and I assume you must have a good belt - or should have. Only way to go.

    #2 - only undo zipper part way - get that right and pants waistband can stay just over the knees and not drop to floor. If that is successful - place gun inside underwear for duration - but replace carefully in rig after you finish - no dropped guns allowed

    use a stall if possible.

    You should always do that if possible anyhow, at a urinal you're in a very vulnerable position for being robbed or whatnot.

    I hold the right side belt in my right hand and have no problem. Always in a stall.

    That is right. You don't want to use a urinal anyway.I used to work in a crummy bar and BG's would bum rush someone taking a leak by smacking their head into the wall. While they recovered they would be relieved of money and such. Also not good for weapon retention. I would use a stall. You lose some minor conveniences, but gain power of choice by carrying a gun with you.

    Thanks everyone, seems like my instincts were correct. I have only been using the stalls since I started carrying. I just didn't want to risk my gun being seen. But, makes sense with BG trying to bum rush guys at the urinal too. I just started carrying, and I am astounded how many people dont realize I have it on! Spent the last two nights hanging with a friend at a restaurant, and no clue!! Really amazing. Thanks for all the input folk!!

    Use the handicap stall. Usually more room and most have the baby changing station. Makes a good shelf.
