I usually put my Kimber Ultra Carry II on top of the tp holder. Although, I went into a gas station bathroom and didn't do that. It dropped right on my toe when I was wearing sandals. Holy $#^+ that hurt. Lucky it was a private bathroom but a nice reminder to always control your firearm when doing your business.

See, NOW using a large fanny pack,

or belt-pack for CCW

doesn't seem so bad, does it?

Hint: The handicapped stall usually also

has a baby changing station, or additional

hooks. Also a lot more space to handle things,

pun intended...

I like to kinda hang mine over my leg so it won't fall in the toilet and get wet.

My gun I leave in my pocket holster.

;-D

Lol....I've used those before. I've also used the kind that just has a hole in the floor.

Not good, criminals would love that situation.

The anti gun crowd would love it too, it paints all gun owners as careless. I've often thought while sitting on a public toilet how it would suck if I left my gun.

Haha that is a high class squatter, I saw one in China and it was just a hole chiseled into the floor and thru the pipe below. I decided that the need was not that great.

In Kazakhstan it was a hole about the size of a tuna can, never tried it either. The commodes had an inspection shelf in the absolute wrong spot.

Those of us who are actually handicapped would appreciate not tying up those stalls simply because one needs a gun rest.

Even if you unholster to sit, dropping your trousers all the way down can let your holster be seen under the stall wall which may cause the darker elements to target you for your weapon when you leave. Large holsters with strong clips distribute the weight nicely and when applied to a PROPER reinforced gun belt (this one from Stoner Holster and very affordable)gives plenty of support to to drop only to the knees and leave firearm holstered, also not letting anyone see it.

You can also place your weapon in an opaque shopping bag, if you have one.
