Public CCW exposure question
OK now that I'm carrying I had a few issues come up in my head as i went through my weekend in my mind. First is Something that has probably already been discussed. If you have your gun on your belt whether it is IWB or OWB and you have to use a public restroom and go #2... the person in the stall next to you can probably see your firearm and or be able to reach under and grab it. While the grabbing is probably not ever going to happen but it would definitely get my attention if I saw that on the belt of a guy next to me and I was not as gun savvy as I am now.
What do you do to avoid that? not use the restroom in public??
And the second is. I have recently joined the gym and pool. In the locker room men pretty much walk around naked without much in the way of privacy. Now I carry OWB and it would be kinda hard to hide it while taking off my shirt. What do you guys do? Go about your business knowing that your legal and there is nothing they can do about it. Or put it in the locker as quickly as possible?
I know these are pretty common sense answers but i guess i just wanted to know what your take was on it.
Public exposure questions
It seems you have the answers for the public restroom stalls. The Gym issue is one I thought real hard about when I first got my CCW. I am not allowed to bring my gun into work, post office, federal buildings among other places. What I did was to buy the DAC gun safe with extra mount plates. My car has a lockable back seat that folds forward. I mounted the safe in the trunk facing the back of the rear seat. It is push button combo lock or key. When approaching my destination I place my gun in the backseat under a jacket. Then I get out and open the back door, flip the seat forward and place the gun in the safe, I then lock the seat. This works really well if you do it fast and smooth it just looks like your grabbing your gym bag or jacket. I also bought extra mount plates for the motorhome because the gun is either on my side in my control or in a safe. You can just move the safe from car to car or motorhome.
The safe is a DAC sport safe and it is great it cost about 90.00, my wife bought it for me for valentines day. Never leave your gun in a public locker room. Hope this helps.
