    A good quick bathroom carry reminder.

    Not a favorite subject for anyone but, an important one in my opinion. My AIWB carried gun stays holstered and on my belt all the time. It sits right above knee level sitting making for an easy draw God forbid I ever had to draw in a restroom. I am on the road a lot so rest stop restrooms are a frequent part of my weekly life. One of the reasons I prefer a Velcro belt besides the micro adjustment capability is when unbuckled I can loop the Velcro back over the first belt loop and holster snap loop(s) and attach it which keeps the gun from sliding down and pulling the belt out of the loop and onto the floor. Also why I prefer a gun something less than 30 ounces loaded.

    I vest or shoulder holster carry, so no issues there when doing business. I'm working on belly band carry, so minimal issues there too.

    You have to be careful in public restrooms that you weapon does not become visible under the stall - could cause a big stink.
    Be careful of people who brag about who they are - a lion will never have to tell you who he's a lion.

    And whatever you do, don't play with it.
    I was born a gun owner, it wasn't a choice, I didn't become one later in life...I was born this way

    Wasn't that addressed years ago on the Barney Miller show about a bunch of detectives at a NYC Precinct House?
    Just use a Bianchi shoulder holster like the old timer, Detective Fish.

    Does he really have to tell ppl to "practice @ home"? I mean what have you done when you're around the house with you edc? Remove all your gear before doing your business? Out doing yard work and you have to take a bathroom break? You've had a lot of chances to practice without it really being dedicated "practice". I could only see this being applicable to the very newest of conceal carriers. First time you have to use the bathroom you're gonna find out how good of holster you have. Those 7.99 iwb holsters? Yup. As far as leaving it on TP dispenser or the back of toilets, the most ppl I've read of doing that are police officers and secret service. :)

    Another fine example of the many pros of shoulder holsters.

    You mean hide out guns? When I was in El Paso we caught a cross dresser carrying in their nether region........

    Back in the 70s, common to find a gun in the crotch/rear areas...they counted on a half-done search.
