    Depending on the location I'll either A: Place it within the "cuff" formed by the pants being around the ankles or B: slide it into the paper *** gasket dipenser if its easily reached from the seated position.

    Just don't place it on the sink and walk away and expect to find it 2 hours later!

    This brings up a good discussion; How to properly defend yourself against threats while doing your business. :D

    You don't drop your pants to the floor. Pull them to the knees. Set your firearm in the crotch of your pants. Don't set it down where you might forget to pick it up when your are finished with your business.

    Ok, since I'm a girl, I have to deal with this issue *every* time I use a public restroom. Seeing how I drink way too much iced tea and have the bladder the size of a walnut, I've gotten in some good experience.

    First, I try to use the stall farthest from the door. Less chance of someone peeking. Second, I use a galco iwb holster that quickly and quietly unclips from my belt. I take it off first - gun in holster - and put it on either the toilet paper dispenser or sometimes there is even a nice little shelf in the stall. I point the gun toward the wall instead of the door when it is sitting there. It is always within arm's reach and I am extremely careful not to bump it with my elbow. I also have a set routine for getting re-dressed every time so I don't forget the gun: tuck in the tank top, pull up the pants, fasten the pants and belt, put the gun on, pull down the shirt and sweater/jacket/whatever, check to make sure nothing shows. Good to go.

    I tried keeping the gun on while my pants were down but it was a disaster. The gun was too heavy, the pants were too tight, and everything ended up where it shouldn't have been. My sister gave me the advice about the toilet paper holder and so far it has worked out really well. Although I do feel sorry for that OSP officer who left her gun in a hospital restroom...

    Amy, sounds good, the only problem that I see is what if a person comes into the stall next to you and bumps the wall that the TP dispenser is on? What's this about the girls room having shelves? How come we don't get shelves?

    Ancient History Channel: Dumb 14 year old kid (Me). Deer hunting, and the need for number two arises. Finish my transaction, (loose belt with a Case knife and Ruger Bearcat strapped to it). Stand up to restore all to its proper place, and the belt end comes out of the loop, and Mister Case and Mister Ruger deliver themselves precisely in the middle of my deposit. This is one of those very few lessons that 14year olds learn quickly and stays with you for life.

    Another advantage to carrying a Bauer .25 Auto (Baby Browning in Stainless Steel) It fits in a holster that fits in my back pocket in front of my wallet. Near impossible to be seen with or without my pants on. Granted you can go on an on about how a .25ACP won't go through 10" of clothes and some Fat guy on meths chest. BUT I can have it with me everywhere without it being a PITA and a small hammer works one **** of a lot better then NO hammer.
