    Pretty stupid

    Wife and son were out of town one evening and I was just going to go to the local Sub shop to get something to eat. Boxing match was coming on and I was in a hurry to get back. I grabbed my rig, which I carry SOB with a clip on. I wasn't going to be gone long and this was a quick run so I didn't bother putting on a belt and just clipped to the jeans. Pants fit tight enough, won't be a problem. Got to the sub shop and I standing at the counter ordering and low and behold, I felt my rig take a Southerly direction. I tried to fake it by putting my hand on by lower back saying I had back problems. About this time, an elderly lady walks in and is standing behind me. I excused myself to the counter man to retreat to the restroom. As I was turning, the rig slipped even lower into the "I'm in trouble zone." I had no choice left but to grab the seat of my pants and move through the Sub shop holding my butt like I was ready to go that very second. I made rearrangements in the restroom and came back out. No further conservation was exchanged between me and the counter man and the elderly lady was MIA. I guess she thought the place was unsanitary. Lesson learned, there is no quick runs and always wear a belt.

    Sorry, but that is funny! Thanks for sharing and teaching us all a lesson! At least the gun didn't fall out and hit the floor!

    Yep - carry cannot be too unplanned or rushed

    An amusing story with no harm done.

    I think I would have just left straight out of the bathroom. It's hard to face people when you gotta do the "butt walk".

    Might not have been so bad, when you were back out in like 5 seconds?!?!? short wait times. Use 'defensivecarry' as a coupon code for a discount to your order.

    Oh, well, that's one of those lessons that you probably won't repeat!

    And, well sorry, but that was pretty funny!!
