Hey, new to all of this and I have a question. Tried searching but did not find anything
When you are caring, and go into a public restroom, what do you do?
If you drop your pants in a stall, a firearm could be seen under the walls. If you take the holster and firearm off your side first, what do you do with it, There is no safe place to put it down.
I am sure it will not be my only "dumb" question, but that is it for now
I feel like an idiot, I just saw the sticky, Moderator, please feel free to delete this thread. Not sure why I did not find it in the search
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

When you use the search function, go to advanced search rather than just using the search box. The results seem to be better that way for some reason.

Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions...

Never a stupid question. I actually cover this in my CCW classes and it always elicits some curious questions. My lead in to the topic is the picture of the Wally World toilet that got blown up by a mishandled firearm.
I haven't ready the bathroom thread, yet.... When I was deployed in Iraq, many of us carried our M-9s in some sort of OWB holster. You'd be amazed at how many hit the bathroom stall floors. Plan ahead, move the gun to a stable location.
571.037. Any person who has a valid concealed carry endorsement, and who is lawfully carrying a firearm in a concealed manner, may briefly and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self defense.
aka... taking a dump
Of course the legal side is important, but that is not so much what I am concerned with. I dont want someone to know it is there, so I would not want it visible under a bathroom stall. I am still reading through the other thread, it is pretty long. Guess it is just something to plan for
You can always were a depends just like the astro-nuts do!
