    I've never seen a stall with a "Reserved Handicap" sign on it. Would be kind of ridiculous to have it setting unused when there are people lined up waiting.

    FAIL.
    Nobody said anything about people waiting did they and leaving that stall open?
    There are posts saying they wait for the handicap stall though, which is why I asked the question I did.

    failure to re-cover

    I had a small problem a while back. Used the stall, got up and buckled up and stepped out to wash up. I carry OWB and the tail of my vest had gotten caught up between me and the weapon exposing the gun. Fortunately, my grandson had taken the break with me and noticed it and quickly alerted me to rectify the situation. No comment from other users in the room. It sure gave me pause for thought and NOW I double check that I'm covered before exiting the stall.

    but when you drop your draws, won't your concealed firearm, become unconcealed and laying close to the floor and easily visible and accessable from under the stall?

    Clothing tends to be pretty bendy (technical term) and you can do a lot with them to hide your holster and especially your firearm. You can always take your gun out of your holster and place it inside your pants/underoos. If it comes down to it, you could also try holding up your pants above the stall bottom, though that would be a major annoyance.

    The handicap stall is pretty much the best one. Its all the way at the back of the restroom, its usually got the door that faces the restroom door, some of them ive seen even have little shelves, though i dont know for what...and it has handles for heavy duty usage.

    These are my thoughts exactly! Don't let carrying a firearm make you paranoid in every situation. This is not to say completely let your guard down by any means, but there's no point in looking at everyone and thinking "How could I shoot you from this angle if you tried to start a confrontation?" Anything can happen anywhere, but you can't go pointing a gun around every corner...

    I am with the guys that think this is just a little on the paranoid side. I guess if I was in a situatiion that made me nervous I might be a little
    more cautious and observant than I usually am, but if I am simply taking a wiz a Publix I don't think I would be too awfully worried.

    Not sure why this is a complicated process. The physiology involved in actualy moving to the restroom, dropping pants, the process in actualy going, then cleanup and reclothing and washing hands is much more involved. Cant be all that difficult to figure out what to do with the gun.

    Keep your peashooter(one of several) next to the peashooter ,never have a problem as always within reach.
    A 22/25 in hand is better than a 45 out of reach.

    I haven't read the whole thread, but seriously? I understand that assaults and such do take place in restrooms, but the fact of life is that a person cannot always be 100% ready for everything. Sometimes you just have to do something that isn't going to be called tactically sound. I'm not talking doing something stupid like pumping gas at 1am with a crowd of suspicious looking people nearby, but if I want to read the jacket of a book I'm going to do it without being afraid that I will be jumped by ninjas.

    Unless I am pocket carrying I use a stall. Not for security purposes (Do you think that crappy door and that little bit of metal constituting a 'lock' will actually stop an attacker?) but for ease of being able to undo my pants without them being pulled to the floor by a pistol and ammo.

    I think the best thing to do is to have your weapon in your non-dominant hand when you enter the bathroom. Wave it around a bit while you use your dominant hand for your other weapon. When you finish, zip up, wash up and leave, reholstering your weapon. VERY IMPORTANT: Do not confuse your weapons or your hands!

    I'll never admit I'm paranoid but the rare time I have to use a public rest room to pee I just slide my holster as far forward as I can making it strong hand right-of-belly mount. And no - I haven't tried to draw it in a compromised position but I have tried it outside of a lavatory in the comfort of my own house. I feel confident that I'd be able to draw and pee because I've proved that I can walk & chew gum at the same time & can multi-task. I'm also a bit ambidextrous so I can handle my business right or left handed.
