Public Restrooms

I’m still new to daily carry, so reading your comments about summer and riding in cars and having a good plan for your day is all very helpful. One question that’s come to mind is what to do in a public restroom? At minimum this could be an awkward scenario. Maybe this is a tough subject to discuss, but I think better to ask now than to explain myself to someone in the next stall. Also, have you all identified any other situations with this kind of challenge?

Well, it really depends on how you’re carrying. I usually carry IWB at about the 4 o’clock position.

For taking a leak, just saunter up to the urinal, unzip, make use of the hole in the front of the ole underroo’s and you’re good to go.

For the ole afternoon constitutional, I’ve found that getting in position then fastening my belt around my knees keeps my firearm out of sight.

There really is no appropriate way to have this conversation, so you’ll have to bear with my sense of humor.

When you find some technique that works for you the key is to do what ever you decide the same way every time. There have been LEO’s and Air Marshalls that have dropped there Firearms in bathroom stalls or even forgot their weapons in the bathroom in secure area’s and the panic they went through insured they would not do that again. If you do the same thing every time it becomes automatic. (muscle memory)

Well, @Derrick you could do what I do and carry in a carry-corset :grin: but maybe a corset isn’t your thing :laughing:
Some folks (even the guys) do swear by belly-bands though. since they’ve got nothing to do with your belt and drawers, they stay put regardless of what you’re in the gent’s for.

@Dawn’s link to the other thread is a pretty good resource too :smile:

:rofl: I’ve heard the corset holsters are very comfortable, @Derrick. I’m guessing they may be a bit warm in summer for me in Wisconsin.

@Derrick :laughing: I like it. It’s a plan :+1:
@Dawn the Dene Adam’s one I like is an all mesh back. So it’s not as hot to wear as you might think.
