    Dropped my gun at the pool yesterday

    I put my CW380 in her holster and stuffed her into the pool bag along with a few towels and some sun screen. Got down to the pool in my neighborhood which was fairly crowded and picked a nice chair in the sun. After a little while I decided to hop into the pool and cool off. when I got out I unzipped my bag and pulled out a towel. I must not have been thinking clearly because along with the towel came my Kahr. Bouncing across the concrete Im not sure if anyone seen but I quickly shoved it back in my bag. Lesson learned was, put your gun in a separate pocket from the rest of your gear

    The inability to secure my gun at the pool around kids makes me just risk being unarmed there. So far I've lived to tell the tale.

    My bag stays right by me at all times. We have some real winners at the pool by my house.. A few times guys have tried to hit on my girlfriend sitting next to me just to try and piss me off. The sad thing is I live in a really nice area.

    Except when you're in the pool, evidently.

    Why carry at a pool? Think of how many times the news has cited a violent incident at a pool? Not trying bust on you but sometimes, it's best to leave it at home IMHO.

    I'm thinking many more bags get stollen from public pools than violent attacks occur. It's more likely a kid will steal your bag than you will need your gun. If that kid shoots or kills somebody with your gun are your ready to deal with the legal/moral repercussions?

    Find a more friendly pool or leave the gun locked up in your car. To easy for a bag to go missing at a public pool.

    There are a few places I won't carry. Swimming and surf fishing are examples.

    Glad I don't have to worry about this.
    My pool is in my backyard.

    Have the girlfriend tell the buzzards that her BF(you) "packs" all she ever needs.

    I prefer a stainless knife at the pool. I don't think I'd bring my gun, but you do what you think you need to do. However, if it is really that bad, you might think about just not going to the pool...

    My gun goes into its own compartment in my back pack at the pool. I use a small cable to lock it to the chair, and a small padlock on the zipper if I go in the water.
