Default Anyone else drop their pistol in the bathroom?

So the wife and I went to town tonight to do some shopping and decided it would be a good idea to eat out. We hit the Chinese buffet and load up noodles and chicken and dead cat I guess it was. Then we hit the local Wally World. After about 15 minutes my gut started rumbling. I went into the stall and wiped all the dried piss off the seat dropped the pants carefully and sat down so as little of my ass was touching as possible, not paying attention to my pistol. Well I hear a CLANK look down and my pistol is laying on the floor. The IWB holster flipped over sideways as I was holding my pants off the ground and my pistol fell out. Luckily there was no one else in the bathroom. What an embarassing moment for me. First time anything like this has ever happened to me. Please tell me I'm not the only one this has happened to here...........So I guess the moral of the story is don't eat Chinese when you are carrying.

Default 2 points on the bathroom

#1 Unzip only. If that means a change in life style so be it.

#2 If you have to sit down remove the firearm and place it in the crotch of your underwear while sitting down. This prevents someone from reaching under the wall to take it, and prevents you from forgetting it on the back of the tank.

During both situations be aware of your surroundings this is when you are most vulnerable.

Plus one on that - or get a shoulder rig and learn to live with a lightweight jacket.

#3 ALWAYS check your underwear for guns before pulling your pants back up!

Marko,

As someone that hates using public restrooms in the extreme, I sugest a second holster with a bottle of metamucil in it.

foss nailed this one. Putting the piece in your undies keeps it in front of you, you don't forget it, and the damned thing will not hit the floor, bounce, and slide 2 stalls down, leaving you with trou at half mast while trying to reclaim it.

And if you ever saw the TV show Barney Miller, remember Det. Fish (Abe Vigoda) always had to go to the head? Shoulder holster.

dude if you guys would all just use shoulder holsters you wouldn't have this problem.

I prefer a shoulder rig in any case, but I use an inside the pants holster during the summer. It's far too easy for a BG to disarm you once you've passed out from heat exhaustion...

Look on the bright side, at least you didn't pull one of these:
