That's why I started using the "hammock": method. Forgot the gun a few times when I un-holstered it at home and put it next to me on the window sill. That was quite enough to prod me to "invent" the hammock method for myself.A few (very few) serious answers to a legit question. Obviously, the suggestions about the handicapped stall and using underwear as a hammock were good ones, as was the one about removing the holster/gun as a unit. Most of the answers are dependent on how you are carrying. As Mas Ayoob would probably say, now you can see why Abe Vigoda (the old guy - Barney Miller?) wore a shoulder holster. For those who have to dump in (relatively) public places, that is the way to go. It is also easier on the back. Barring that, if you are right-handed, choosing a stall which puts a wall at your right may help, especially with a belt holster at your 0300. Since I usually wear the questionable/controversial shoot-me vest, I can often put my carry gun in an actual pocket.
The bottom line is that you must usually figure out the answer before you leave home, because it may involve choice of clothing or choice of firearm.
Good luck, and don't depend on remembering a gun or holster you took off. Do NOT put it on the tank. The reason folks put it in their pants is so that it cannot be forgotten.
That has to be one of your best posts yet Jim! +3 for that one.It isn't stylish. It even looks bad on her.
But you might be onto something...
Instead of using the restroom, you can just take a dump in the fanny pack, floss your crack with the strap, and throw it into the dumpster. Two birds, meet one stone.
This was my first thought, but then I realized that (i) it only takes one whacko in the next stall to call the cops on the "guy in the bathroom with a gun" or (ii) you never know when you're next to a Republican Senator in the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, in which case he's definitely looking!Think of the last time there was someone in the stall next to you. How much time did you spend checking out the waistband of his pants around his ankles? If you are like most people, you don't spend a lot of time checking out the person next to you. I'm guessing that even if you had a small black holster hanging off your belt, most people wouldn't even realize it.
I can' t believe Underwhere hasn't plied his art form in here yet.
Home Depot last year in NH comes to mind. Idiot drops his Glock and Kaboom a round exits through the roof. Poor employee washing his hands must have had a MI.Just draw it and begin fiddling with it carelessly out of view from other bathroom guests but please try to avoid shooting the toilet or putting a round through the ceiling. Both have been done before and the outcomes were less than humorous.
