    OK, first, try to choose a stall next to the wall on your carry side. Once in the stall, drop trou to about your knees and keep enough tension by spreading them to hold things at about knee level. With a little practice, you can keep everything above the bottom of the interstall wall. Flopping your holsterd weapon inward toward the crotch of your pants is another option. DO NOT take it out of your holster. Your holster is designed to hold it securely and cover your trigger - if it doesn't do those things, get a new one -

    Practice at home a few times...

    Yeah,DON'T! We have had numerous undercover bust with our Dept. Public restrooms in our area are a popular hangout for pedifiles and men seeking other mens attention.And what we hear from other Dept's this is the trend right now.

    P.S. Someone had a thread on a Toilet Holster about a week ago.

Don't make it any harder than it needs to be.



    ^^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^^^^


    is how I roll on this one.Just kind of fold it into the inside of your pants as you take them down, and when you are done, grab hold of the holster/weapon and pull up, tuck in, adjust everything, button/zip up and your on your way.
    Tucking in is the hardest, but you will become profficient at it in time..JUST DON"T RUSH THINGS WHEN YOU ARE PULLING UP YOUR PANTS!

    This has proven to be quite effective, even at crowded restrooms such as a baseball game.
    Then what did she say.....?

    Your handgun shouldn't fall out of the holster, if it does improve the retention.

    Keep the holster angled so it is not pointed at anything important. If you must remove it from your belt/pants and hold it, do so.

    Preferable to be inside a single stall public restroom with lockable door.

    Hold it (not the gun, your bladder/bowels) until you get home.

    I knew that someone would point out the obvious - rebuckle the belt and maintain outward pressure with the knees... never thought I'd have to be pointed to the obvious, but there you have it.

    I bet others had an 'ah-ha' moment reading your post as well.

    I'm just sayin'...

    I seldom use public restrooms, but if it's a must, I try to get or wait for the handicapped stall, and my sidearm is in waiting. I am aware of who enters and leaves.

    Stay armed...even when doing improtant 'paperwork'...stay safe!

    I should have known - a fellow Texan knew exactly how to handle the situation - well, maybe "handle" isn't exactly the right word.

    I've contemplated this scenario before I was even old enough to buy a long gun.. IMO, I believe the greatest weapon one can possess is a sharp mind. When I was unarmed, I relied on situational awareness and my martial arts training.

    Now that I carry, it really depends on the venue. For example, if I'm at a 'sit down' restaurant such as Red Lobster or a steak house, I won't necessarily be more relaxed, but I'll be just a tad more at ease since their mirrors tend to line up directly behind the urinals so just a quick side glance and can provide a view of the majority of your surrounding area. But in general, I don't hold my junk when I piss, I flop it out, left arm on the defensive, right hand ready to draw my weapon and if piss and blood happen to collaborate in the creation of a pool of handled business, so be it.

    Do all the non handicap people that use a handicap stall also park in a handicap spot in the parking lot?
