    I get it. I just don’t think it’s a good idea, especially when there’s no great place to stash it.

    If you had to go through that bathroom scenario every hour or two, it would get old.

    Now that I think back, diligent conscious effort towards safe gun handling was magnified more so when carrying for 20 years before our CHL laws were passed. Because if negligence occurred, I was in a heap of trouble!

    Also, think about it. Peeing is not time consuming in and of itself. By the time I take the gun out and situate it in the pants hammock, it’s time to pull the pants back up again. What’s the point of stashing it there?

    You never lose SIGHT of your gun.

    If the gun ends up in Texas , and the person who has it does not know, or have reason to know , that it is stolen , no charge. Will lose the gun, but simply being is possession of stolen property is not a crime here.

    That’s one of the reasons I tend to carry my pocket .380 more than my other guns.

    But why would you need to put it anywhere? If you squat and pee in a matter of seconds, why even put it anywhere? It’s like you would be doing some series of motions to place it there for no reason, when you can just leave it in on your belt in the holster in the first place. Putting the firearms in the pants hammock would have no purpose for a lady taking a pee.

    It’s like, you might as well hold it. If you’ve made it to the point to where your gun is out of the holster and you have ALSO managed to at the same time drop your drawers and squat, you’ve already mastered the amazing task of acting as if you have three hands. At that point, placing your firearm in the pants hammock for 20 seconds of peeing is kind of anti-climactic. Unnecessary at that point unless you are going to be sitting there for a while.

    Like, as soon as you squat, you are up again in seconds. What’s the point of stashing it there for a few seconds? For any of it, dealing with your clothes and the firearm in and out the holster all at once, you need three hands anyways. If you are going to take your firearm out of the holster, if you then are going to unbuckle and drop your drawers, then really, you need one hand to hold the firearm, then two more hands to deal with getting your belt undone and dropping your drawers.

    Since we don’t have three hands, the easiest thing for peeing is just leaving it in the holster in the first place.

    Any experienced offocer knows that if you are gonna drop a deuce, you hit the Station, your home, or fire station. Ladies do it have it harder. Out in public? Find a private bathroom.
    I always check a restaurant table when we leave for items forgotten, it is the same thing in the bathroom. Amateur.

    I tuck it and my IWB clip on holster in there so nobody at work can see from under the cubicle
