    I see no need to unholster, or taking holster off, Just do not let your pants go past your knees, when I sit, the back of my pants and belt are held by my knee pit, and the IWBH is siting against my right knee.

    I cant believe this was asked. Lay it inside your pants to keep it off ground, or on top on tp holder, or possibly on baby changing station.

    This is a great question, actually. There are as many opinions on this topic as there are about the "right" holster.

    I carry a G19 OWB chambered - when I am in public, its always a problem what to do. I don't like pulling the gun out of the holster, because handling a loaded gun always invites risk of AD.

    Basically, I have figured out an elaborate system of handling my pants, so that the gun stays holstered but doesn't fall to the floor.

    When I lived in North Carolina the Onslow County Sheriff (Brown at that time) left his shooter on the back of the crapper in Wal Mart. Thankfully a decent person found it and not a kid or dirtbag.

    It's a relevent question. I usually set mine on the TP holder or just wait till I get home and can use my own crapper.

    Oh good grief...this again...

    Here's some good advice:

    Choose/use the right gear, and leave it alone.

    Sorry to open this topic up again. I didn't do a search before posting this. It was more of a joke and the few times I've used the bathroom in public over the last 6 months I've thought jokingly to myself that this would be a funny thread. Sorry for the spam.

    On a serious note a carry OWB in a Tagua holster so I unholster and stick it in my pants between my legs.

    2 words: Handicap Stall. Note: make sure the door does secure behind you.

    As always, two warning shots and a courtesy flush.
