Thread: I dropped my handgun in the stall

  1. #51
    Did the OP ever state what holster he was using?

    I have carried for years and never had a close call with a high quality boned leather holster, and I don't use types with retention straps.

    All of my carry holsters, OC or CC are from Mitch Rosen or Sparks, I could do hand stands and cartwheels and the gun would not leave the holster. I guess I just don't understand the problem.

    Sorry for your experience. Did you damage the weapon after dropping it on what I assume to be a hard floor? In my 40 plus years of shooting and 26 as a police officer, I dropped a gun twice. A S&W model 64 was one of my mistakes. As a result, the 64 developed a kink in the action. The other, a Ruger SP101. The 101 simply had a slight ding on the cylinder which was polished out.
    Guns survive being thrown and dropped much better in the movies than they do in real life.

    I just want to know when bathroom (Public & businesses) engineers are going to design walls and doors that go all the way to the floor, why does the general public still have to put up with half private stalls any way?...

    First thing I thought was that it was lucky it didn't land in the toilet - adding insult to injury

    Well said, I never understood that either. And maybe a rack for your sidearm while your taking care of business.

    The NRA has recently added a bathroom stall expert to its board of directors. Former US Senator Larry Craig.
    Perhaps we will be seeing some articles on carry techniques and does and don't while taking care of business.

    Rest stop restrooms, are one of the most dangerous places i know of.

    Guess I'll add my 2 cents worth. If I'm carrying my Kahr MK-9, and wearing my cargo shorts, then the front pocket is large enough for pocket carry...along with a pocket holster. Then I've no problem just walking up and doing my business even if there are people standing right next to me at the urinal. However, if I'm carrying my Kimber I use either an IWB or sometimes a OWB holster...can't stand there next to anyone. So, I head to the handicapped stall as far back as I can..next to the wall and once inside, remove the Kimber and set it very quietly on the metal housing for the TP. It's nice and flat no risk of it falling off. Once done, Kimber goes right back in the holster and away I go.

    Sometimes if there is a handicap rail in the stall and the toiler paper dispenser under the rail i can neatly place my firearm in the gap there. I have done this before with or without my Supertuck deluxe.

    Also if there is a toiler set cover dispenser, you can place the firearm in there usually if your really worried about someone seeing it, usually my full sized S&W fits in there just fine with the holster.

    If i am in the right stall and keep my pants knee level no one can see it unless the door is higher than normal.

    Its all about stall selection and what they have in there.

    They should start putting a gun rest or some sort of table in all stalls
