    I have a far simpler solution, plan your day better than that, Public restrooms are dirty, disease ridden, and if I cannot stand up and do what I need I will wait until I get home. So how many of you use a clean paper towel to open the door when leaving one?

    Edit: Urinal tactics, I go the the one as far from the entrance a possible to be able to view the whole room and become a south paw. A couple of years back a guy while in a local store went to use the facilities, while there 3 kids robbed him, he pleaded with them "I've just had open heart surgery, take my money but please do not hurt me" where as they promptly punched him, knocked him down and kicked him in the chest multiple times, he survived barely.

    This is why I am a firm believer in using a stall, even for the standing up job. Urinals give too much advantage to the enemy.

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.

    Not to be rude or poke fun, But who the hell has a plastic urinal hospital type stashed inside there car? people may have used a soda bottle at one time in there life. If they where on the interstate and the rest area was a few miles down the road. But most people i know do not have a Plastic bottle in there car at all times to take a piss in. I like most try vary hard not to use the public rest rooms for any more then number one.

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    Have been watching this thread

    I have been watching the responses to this thread with much amusement. So here goes...
    I usually carry IWB so when I pull my pants down I flip the waistband of my under drawers over the grip of the pistol and it holds it to my leg. No problem.

    I have always tried to be as aware of my surroundings as possible while carrying (and while not carrying, for that matter), but I must say that honestly, I never really thought about this scenario. As for doing my business in a stall, hanging a loaded gun on a hook by its trigger guard is not safe. I prefer keeping it on my person; sure on the hook it's right where you can see it, but it's not on your person, and therefore, not in your immediate control. But, to each his own, I suppose.

    I agree that there is some limited advantage to being not seen however.... you cannot see either, marginal stall locks and a kick to the door behind you while you are in a compromising stance could just ruin your day. I still prefer to be fully advised of what is going on in the room.

    Ah yes, but unless they have been actively following you, they would be kicking the door open on the unknown (to them) and most people who are robbed like that have been marked and possibly stalked, and if you are aware then you should notice the tail and set up a counter attack.

    And for those of you who keep your gun on the hook, that gun will come flying off if the door is kicked in. Yet another reason why doing that is unsafe. That's why I keep my it on my person.

    This is true.

    However I pray it never happens to anyone, but there still is the chance it could.
