    My definition of frustration

    The fact that every one of my jeans are button-fly, and I prefer to carry IWB. Really need to update my trouser wardrobe.

    Something I wish I had known before I took my CCW course...

    Call me naive, but I don't understand.

    Hmm, imagine you just had a 40 oz cold cola from 7-11. Time to hit the urinal. How much faster is a zipper, vs the elbow balance dance of holding everything up when you have to undo belt, buttonfly, etc...

    I tried a pair of button-fly's long before I carried, and quickly realized the 40oz issue.

    It’s even worse if you have the old green apple quick step.

    As you get older, the fewer the barriers between you and a urinal the better.

    Levi 501 button-fly jeans are WORTH it! I recently told my wife that she was expressly forbidden to buy me ANY MORE jeans. I don't want to be fashionable, I don't want to "modernize", I don't want anything Lee or Wrangler or LL Bean or Arizona or...I don't give a FLIP! I'll buy 'em, don't bother, I don't demand a lot of things. But Red Tag 501 button-fly Levi jeans are (IMHO) the kinda' jeans that...GOD wears. There is no substitute!*

    *Until, of course, a weak prostrate causes me to wet myself. And even THEN, I'll consider Depends as an option. Adult diapers just might provide "the ultimate in deep concealment".

    Levi's could feel like wearing a fluffy cloud, but that awkward stance you have to make when standing at a urinal and not wanting Mr. Lookyloo next to you know that your carrying, pardon the pun, some heat makes me only want to wear something with a zipper. Now that I think about it, I don't want the guy looking over for ANY reason, but I digress.

    The Cleveland Browns are my definition of frustration, regardless of the pants one is wearing.

    Well along into the 21st century, I don't understand the fascination with buttons for the fly. For sure, with buttons you'll never get any personal real estate pinched, but unless one is extraordinarily clumsy or unlucky, that just doesn't happen often. So what's the attraction? To feel the breeze? Tradition?

    My wife loves button-down jeans on me, but they are a barrier to fast relief! Ah, the dilemmas we face! You can actually unbutton the buttons and go, without undoing the entire pants, but it takes a bit of coordination. And this is another reason why I love carrying in a bellyband. The gun won't fall out when I unbutton.

    "Frustration" is being deployed away from your wife for many months. You are describing a very minor inconvenience.
