Ever get caught with your pants down?
First off – This is a serious post; I have done my best to articulate myself with tact.
My primary carry weapon is a .45ACP. I carry strong side IWB, and carry 2 extra mags on my weak side. When I use a public latrine and have to….umh…”sit down”, I always struggle with what I should do with my weapon. When in a public latrine you can always see the other people feet (and their pants around their feet) in the stall, so I figure it is safe to say that someone could see my carry rig when my pants are down.
This is bad because for 1 in Oklahoma you must always keep the weapon out of sight to stay legal, and 2 because it is just bad juju to let a potential aggressor know that you are armed.
What I have been doing is just prior to pulling down my pants I un-holster my weapon, then when my pants are down I place the weapon in my underwear.
Has any body ever given any thought about this?
What do you do?
Unholster, make sure safety's on, put on the toilet paper dispenser, do your business, remember to take it with you afterwards.
...although I seriously doubt anyone would bust you for that particular situation.

What do you do to need a gun and two spare mags with you at all times? That just seems insane to a foreigner like me. I guess it's just confusing because I haven't grown up in america with the huge gun culture you are famous for.
I'm not trying to troll here it seriously amazed me to hear that you carry that much firepower around on your body.
Its in case the Ninjas attack...
I have done this before. However not all stalls have a dispenser, some just have the roll bolted to the wall. Sometimes I will put the weapon on the baby changing station if the stall has one.

I live in a high crime area, a lot of gang bangers and drug addicts. I would rather have a sidearm and not need it than need it and not have it.
If you think that this is a lot of fire power than you would have a heart attack if you saw what I have in my house.
so you can carry whatever you want as long as no-one sees it??
I dont even think i'm allowed a concealed knife. Pity. Because i like my knife.
You cant judo chop a bullet. :evil:
A state issued license is required to carry a concealed pistol. (Which is BS, the 2nd Amendment should suffice). Even with the license you must follow certain rules, keeping it hidden is one of them.

Yeah I realised that alot of people have mini-armories at home but it just kind of scares me to think that people walk around in public with guns under their jackets.
We have alot of exemptions to carrying knives such as being able to carry a undetectable knife for the purposes of food preperation or if it is used for sport or ceremony.
In case you use the whole two magazines on the attacking hoards?? Lol, sorry. I've never really lived in a shitty area so i dont really get it. I've shot weapons before, on the range, and appreciate that people use them to hunt etc...

I also think that you should be able to prove that you know how to use a weapon before said liscence is issued.
