    People have tried to speedload cellphones, knives, and all sorts of crap into their pistols instead of magazines. That said, I think it's OK to clip both the cellphone and mag pouch on the same side, as long as the mag is in front of the cell phone, so your hand will reach it first.

    Good story: a mildly entertaining scenario, what turned out to be a harmless mistake, and a learning point. Thanks for sharing.

    In Missouri, St. Louis to be exact, it is a felony to carry on a bus or any form of public transportation.

    LOL, a felony?
    I am sure that if you SHOOT the buss driver (Seattle) you get charged with TWO felonys. I know that second felony will detour them from doing so.

    You should look into your states public transportation laws. They might fall under federal territory.

    In CO, you can not carry on pubic transit (bus, light rail).

    Some of my 'funniest' range stories have to do with speed/combat loading and watching "experienced" people grab thier cellphones and try 'inserting' them into thier carry guns.

    I carry like the OP describes most of the time and I make it a point to 'practice' with my cell in place just to insure I don't make that mistake when/if i need to while my heart rate is up in a moment of crisis.

    Lesson learned I'm thinking for OP. Experience is the best teacher.

Now I am in more of an administrative/supervisory position at my employer, as in I have my own office/desk etc, but that does not change the fact that I am registered as an unarmed security guard at my current employment.
    Gee that kinda sucks, are you in a uniform while at work? Doesnt that kind of make you an official TARGET?
    Maybe you should press your company to switch to ARMED security guards. Explain that you know where they can hire a really good one, for only 20% more money than they pay you now, and he will even supply his own Glock!

    I ride the bus frequently here, sometimes in Miami. You're silly if you're not carrying.

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    I have found nothing in my readings that say in Washington State that you cannot carry on a bus or train... If that is indeed the case can someone please post the info so I know not to do it?
