    My Dad was mugged while he stood at a urinal in the restroom at a very nice hotel in the early 1980's. The mugger took his gold watch and wallet and the cash he had in his front right pocket. My father was armed with a S&W .38 in an Alessi ankle holster and was caught completly off guard. My Dad was unhurt and the robber was never caught.

    It just goes to show how vulnerable we are when we are in a public restroom either with your pants down or using the urinal.

    The only smart way to do it is in a stall.

    No one can get in, if someone tries you can lean back on the door.
    Paranoid?

    No.

    Smart?

    Yes.

    As some of you have already mentioned, I will wait for a stall to become available.

    Good point, lots of guys learn this at a young age.

    For example, when I was in middle school, it wasn't uncommon for your buddies to burst into the bathroom, and start pelting you with "hornets" - tightly folded pieces of paper launched from rubber bands - while you were taking a leak. no defense!

    I prefer to use a stall. At least it places a physical barrier between me and a potential threat, giving me time to react if something happens. Also, I stay aware of who is there, and who enters.

    Using the urinal puts you in a VERY bad spot if someone decides to attack you randomly, and if someone is planning to attack you, you're giving them a great opportunity. Remember, criminals ALREADY have the element of surprise (more or less) on their side. No need to give them even more of an edge. OMO.

    Now that paints an interesting picture, doesn't it? lol I'm surprised that you didn't suffer from, "streamous interruptous." (pretty impressed, actually)

    I just stand in front of the urinal and pee backwards......people assume that I'm nuts and leave me alone.

    Just kidding, like everything else, I tailor my behavior to the circumstances. In a busy place a urinal is ok, at 4a/m I'm going for a stall,furthest from the door.

    I prefer to LOOK over my shoulder.

    Actually I use a handicapped stall. At my size it is just a lot easier.

    I mean weight.

    I do my business and leave. Dont tap me on the shoulder while I'm there, I'll turn around in mid-stream.

    when I'm on duty I use the urinal, I'm just really aware of whats going on, that said, the convenience stores that we frequent are single holes or have setups that allow us to keep an eye on things

    when off duty I just keep both hands free and my SA is on high alert ready to take action, always watch your back, I don't really care what people are thinking if they see me taking care of business and watching them at the same time
