    Complacency. Gear checks are a must any time you depart one location to another. The guy may have been distracted, maybe he's having problems at home, or finances or any number of things.

    Bad move? Yeah absolutely. Does it happen? Yeah absolutely and probably more than you realize. It's just that most times they remember and turn around and no one is the wiser.

    Its a pain in the bubblegum to remove duty gear in a public toilet. There's more often than not nowhere to hang your belt, or set your weapon etc.

    Not justifying, just trying to offer some insight.

    Ummm, how about a quick equipment check before you walk out the stall? Just so you don't forget something important.

    Just sayin...

    Id feel safer if he'd left his radar gun in the head.:rolleyes:
    Someone has a nice Glock in .40 now. It would be humorous if it showed up in a no questions asked gun buyback.

    I'm EXTREMELY paranoid when I must use public restrooms. Triple check before I leave the stall - including for printing. This case is my worst nightmare.

    This is the third or fourth story about a cop leaving their service weapon in a bathroom I have read on NWFA. SO yes it happens and most likely more often then we hear about.

    We had a young solider once leave his night vision goggles by the cat hole he dug.
    When he went back to get them , he found the wrong end of a skunk .
    Didn't make for a nice night ...

    I can't even count the number of phones I've found left behind in restrooms. I've not found a gun yet, but honestly wouldn't be surprised if I did. People seem to lose their minds after they lose their loads :rolleyes:
