Thread: What do you do with your gun while in a public restroom?

  1. #11
    If I'm trying to be discreet about having a weapon, then I usually have my Kel Tec, in which case I leave it in my pocket, just like my money, keys, cell phone, and other items.

    But when I do have my 1911 I just keep my pants up at the urinal, so I've never had to go through all the acrobatics that you guys have described....

    I was referring to what I do when doing a number 2. When relieving myself at a urinal while standing, I don't have to do anything more than just unzip my pants. My gun always stays put during that.

It also got me to wondering what everyone else does with their guns while handling their business.

    In keeping with my number one priority of handling a loaded gun as little as possible, I took my gun while it was still in its IWB holster and put it (holster and all; the gun never came out of the holster), along with my cell phone, in the seat of my pants while they were on the floor.

    Does anyone else encounter this problem? What do you do with your gun while using a publlic restroom?
    This is a very legitimate concern. I just go to knee level and buckle the belt so that it won't slip. This works!

    Try to keep it out of the toilet. No really if it is in cooler weather I have them in a Cornaco leather vest a lot of the time so no problem. Like others here I avoid public rest rooms as much as I can.

    I'd rather have my arm amputated rather than using a public restroom other than a urinal. In my case I have a the perfect solution if it's an emergence. When I go out I'm in my electric wheelchair. I just pull it close to the toilet and place my firearm on the seat. Out of sight and completely accessible.

  10. It has to be an unavoidable emergency for me to use a public restroom for anything other than the urinals.

    In the off chance of an emergency, considering there is no shelf to place the holstered firearm, I guess I would opt for the crotch of the pants around the knees option listed earlier.

The only draw-back is public exposure (a crime) or other problems should a cop walk up and U R filling a urinal, which can be stashed fast long B 4 they walk over and ask for your DL & PoI. All zipped-up and tucked-away sitting there & smiling. Other ablution needs do mean a crap stop, but in a closed cubical with the door locked from the inside, I doubt anyone will be concerned what you drop, flush and stroll out as discreetly as U waltzed in. Long distance truckers basic kit, I've even seen a female version that works with an uncomfortable catheter set-up, but if you are hydrating, travelling and packing then one of those $1.50 deals securely holds enough for you to make gassing-up and chow/rest the only need to stop on say a 1,000+ mile trip from Denver to El Paso. Speaking from experience and those public pull-over 'no facilities' just parking rest-stops on most freeways every 50 miles or so are the perfect place to void without ever leaving your car/truck except to stretch your legs and maybe dump a full container down the nearest drain.
    Clean 'em up later with a little soapy water and there is no law about carrying one under your driver's seat. The sealed top makes a tip over no big deal & no spill. Large 3" opening hard to miss! It's the folks who wander off into the bushes at those stops who attract the attention no one wants from anyone. Just a proven way to beat public restrooms while packing and reduce the risk of alarming fellow patrons of the rest-room or running into a BG lurking inside one which is an MO for some freeway holdups.

    No way, Jose. Besides, I don't own a car, so if I have to do a number 2, it's either outside or in a public restroom if I can't immediately get to my own toilet.
