    Before I purchased a quality leather holster I carried using a nylon Uncle Mikes.

    Completing my business, I dumped my Glock 22 onto the porcelain throne. It hit so hard I thought I had cracked the thing. Of course it fell on the floor in the stall nearest the next, which was occupied. Whomever it was, jerked their feet away quite quickly. I grabbed it and left without saying a word.

    I took my name off the waiting list and left the resturant fearing someone would recognize my shoes. The whole time my wife was fussing at me because she really wanted to eat there.

    I think the most embarassing thing is listening to people brag that they've never 'been made.'

    Trying out a shoulder holster with really random retention. It went from I couldn't get the weapon out some times, others....well. I was in a local CVS, and bending over to tie my shoe when clatter clatter, my Sig hits the floor. I quickly scramble and reholster right in front of the clerk, I quickly say "Sorry", and he give me a dumb look and says "For what". Some how he missed the whole thing that happened within two feet of him. Needless tosay I went to my car and cranked down on the adjustment screws of my holster to "Good luck getting me out today" level.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Somehow my glock jumped out of my britches as I sat down on the toilet at work. I just felt stupid as I'd just read the story about the guy shooting his toilet and getting porcelain shards in his bum.

    Remember Guns dont float. Learned that one from a friend. One of the reasons I unholster when sitting down to do my business, it leads to less likelyhood of dropping it in or worse...although fishing out my Sig out of a toilet is pretty bad.

    About two years ago I went to the chiropractor with my wife to keep her company. The nurse asked me if I minded if they retook my x-rays that they took the previous week because they didn't come out as well as they should. I told her that I didn't mind, then remembered I was carrying in my SmartCarry. I figured it would be OK though since my trouble had been in my back above my waistline.

    When we got into the x-ray room the nurse told me I had to lower my pants so she could get the whole spine. At that point I figured what the h-ll, this should be interesting...

    I lowered my pants around my ankles then lowered the SmartCarry on top of the pants trying to cover what was showing of the gun with the pants. The cover-up wasn't hugely successful.

    The nurse looked at the pile of stuff on the floor around my ankles for a second or so, then went about her business without a word. She has never mentioned a word about it to this day - and neither have I.

    Haven't had one yet, thankfully! But you have given me some things to consider avoiding!!! It's only been a month for me with the CCW.

    I’ve told this story once before, here on CC…

    Back in the 80’s I worked for a big corporation and traveled all the time.

    I’d been out to dinner, and returned to my hotel room on Singer Island in Palm Beach Florida.

    This 4-5 star hotel had a wide open lobby, with marble floors. Instead of wanting to feed a belt holster on for the short trip to my room, I took my Colt Stainless Combat Commander 45 out of the glove box and slide it inside my pants in the small of my back. My sport coat covered it.

    As I was stepping into the elevator, the pistol dislodges, slides down my pant leg, and goes ker plunk on the marble floor. The whole lobby got quite, as I bent over to pick the 45 back up and returned it to the small of my back, and quickly stepped into the elevator.

    One guy got on with me, and as the elevator was going up, he said “you a cop or something”, I replayed “or something”. He never said anything else and neither did I.

    Moral of the story: no matter how short a distance you are traveling it’s always better to carry your pistol in a holster.
