    The Official "Restroom Thread"

    I thought of this the other day as I was at a restaurant using the urinal. It's a really bad situation as your back is turned away from the door, or what's behind you, not bragging hear, but your hands are taking care of business, and you're in a really precarious position with "it" hanging out. After analyzing this situations, I've started using stalls w/doors, locking them, and staying observant to anyone in the restroom or coming in.

    I've thought of that too. One more reason I hate public restrooms.

    A guy tried to ruff me up in a restroom once. I had a rival team jersey on....he ended up getting peed on and a during the shock of that, caught an elboe to the face all the while I was "hanging out". Was @ a baseball game in Houston.

    Perhaps peepers will be pooping their pants if peeping into private and personal places and perhaps their pupils focus upon the front sights of a custom .45?

    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 look for the last urinal farthest away from the door, if it's available. That way I can keep my peripheral vision on what is coming in.

    I just go in the bathroom and take care of business.

    If anyone wants to start something, I'll take care of that when it happens

    I've always considered a public urinal to be a perfect place to get easily disarmed. You can't really see behind you, your hand(s) are probably in front of you, and it wouldn't be hard for someone to grab your weapon from you if they noticed somehow you were carrying (maybe an accidental print).

    I try to keep aware of my surroundings and having more holding power with my left hand in case I need to use my right hand to draw.

    I always take note of my surroundings before even going in a restroom and if I'm in a large venue, say a sporting event, I will wait for a stall and lock it while I'm doing my thing.

    More importantly for me, since I can't be in there with her, I am concerned about my wife using the bathroom. I always stay right outside the door with an ear very closely attuned to the sound of her voice, should it rise.

    I would like to here you say that five time fast.

    Restrooms are the perfect place to run into trouble. Usually one manner of egress, close quarters and everyone is preoccupied. Not to mention most people have some apprehension to using a public restroom to begin with.

    Weather in a stall or not I am aware of everyone entering and leaving, as they say, I don't want to get caught with my pants down.

    It all goes back to situational awareness.
    If I can't use peripheral vision, or can't use the reflections in glass covered pictures or certain chrome fixtures, I look for a stall with door.

    I don't like people walking around behind me while I am otherwise preoccupied.

    And, If the pooper peepers come by, my preoccupation with them will be peaked, causing me to pee on my pistol as I pull it for presentation.

    Paranoid run amuck...nothing wrong with noting surroundings...but to use a stall because I'm afraid they are going to get me?? Don't think so.

    I use a stall, and did long before I started carrying.

    Another option would be to do what an older man did last year in Frisco, TX when he was assaulted in a bathroom. He beat the ever lovin' out of the knucklehead that tried to mug him, with his walking cane . I wish I could find the article and post it, I'll do that if I find it later.
