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.
    No, that "crappy" (you don't mean dirty?) little door and lock won't stop anyone, and thats not the point. Most home doors/locks won't stop anyone either. The point of those things is to slow someone down and give you time to react. If someone is trying to break into a bathroom stall (or a home) they are going to make some noise and be noticed. That person trying to come into that stall is giving you time to react. Standing at a urinal with your back to everyone and no door is what gives you NO time to react.

    Prefer stalls for either use and for sure a hook to hold my gun securely rather than on top of the paper holder where a bump could cause it to fall. Or rolled over the waist band in the belt holster into my drawers held high up between my legs.

    I never thought about it until this post.I'll continue to use urinals as I am confident to steer clear of areas places that are poorly lit
    no foot traffic.When I come across places like that my radar goes up !

    Just curious...any of the "stall" guys park on the side of a convenience store and glance inside before going inside? Im just wondering if the guys who are worried about being ambushed are equally concerned about walking into one...

    I think an assailant would just kick the stall door in (and right into your back)...but then again, having my head knocked into the wall a half a foot in front of me doesn't seen too pleasant.

    Sheesh...maybe I'll just hold it till I get home.
    Down, right, aft...

    I had a guy try to strong arm me and my buddy in a restroom at a bar once. He walked in and stood in front of the door and said give all your money. I pulled out my Spyderco and said I dont think so. He stood there for a second and then backed out the door. My buddy was freaking out and about started crying. I did not carry then and would not have had a pistol at a bar anyways, but I allways have a knife. ALWAYS be prepared!


    CARRY ON!

    I just started carrying (MTAC about 3:30-4:00 position) and haven't used a public restroom yet while carrying, but when I do next I'll just use a stall. I'm not paranoid about being jumped or something, it's just easier to keep the pistol out of sight.

    No RVs here bro. I' got talent. I've learned to use a Snapple bottle rather than pull up to a "gross" public restroom. Just too many weirdos, and uncle pervies at the restrooms.

    When using a public urinal, it would seem prudent to handle your gun with your weak hand, and keep your strong hand free in case you have to draw your weapon. ;)

    (Apologies if somebody said this already. I haven't gone back through all 16 pages of the thread).

    During 31 years in uniform I very seldom ever used public rest rooms. If emergency and I stopped in a place that I wasn't familiar with, I check it out. When I was in uniform I'ld hang the SB belt on the hook with my hat, but the weapon was there with me, never on a hook. I always maintained pocession of it.
    Even now, after retirement, I only use stalls where I have a door ... and if doing #2 the weapon is still laid in the crotch of my jeans if the holster is laced in my belt. In instances where I have an easily removable holster, the holstered wepon is so held.
    I have a few places I know well that the men's room has both urinal and toilet but just the one locking door, these are the only places I'll use a urinal. I never ever put my back to an unlocked door in a public restroom.
