    New Thread: "What's the best concealment holster for shootouts in the crapper?" :D


    An ankle rig would work well in this siutation.

    This kinda crap is why I carry. Er...no pun intended.

    Seriously though...this makes our past discussions of how to carry while on the crapper even more relevant.

    When I'm sitting on the crapper, my CCW is right there on my right thigh ... in fact I imagine I could draw easier sitting on the toilet then pretty much any other position :p

    I carry IWB at 3 o'clock



    Boy, talk about your unsanitary place to be shot :barf:


    I'm thinking that with your pants down around your ankle it would be harder to draw from an ankle rig.

    Do you know how LOUD that must have been??

    It's a good thing, for his pants' sake, that he was sitting on the John.

    Perhaps he could have used the same defense that the monkeys do at the zoo?

    I'll bet that the rounds of ammo were a whole lot cheaper than buying Ex-Lax. :neener:

    Hey, here's an idea for a new Ex-Lax commercial: "...So, if you've got that bloated feeling, we've got just the thing to take care of the problem: Ex-Lax, available in original flavor, chocolate, .22LR, 9mm and, for really stubborn cases, extra-strength .44 magnum. Ex-Lax, available at a pharmacy or gun store near you.":D

    No, seriously, cases like this are just the thing to convince reluctant spouses or significant others that you need to carry everywhere you go. That kidnapping in the Wal-Mart parking lot in N. Texas about 8 months ago was great (for me, not the kid or the family) - I haven't heard "and why do you need THAT to go shopping for formula at Wal-Mart" in quite a while. It'll also save me a whole lot of time..."Honey, can you go to Walgeens and get me some Ex-Lax - chocolate, please." "Hold on, I'll be back sooner than you can say 'John Moses Browning' " :what:

    I'm not a particularly patient and understanding man and I'm not really interested that the perpetrator had a bad childhoold.

    Align sights directly above feet and legs visible under door and fire two rounds. Finish business and be sure to wash hands thoroughly when done. It's not worth taking chances with cleanliness.

    My usual answer for almost all CCW - SHOULDER HOLSTER! (Only problem there is if you are using tie-downs - still not bad!)

    Happened here in SC a couple years ago; an off-duty deputy on the john in the restroom of a shopping mall. He reportedly was holding his off-duty weapon in his hand (dunno if he had an IWB rig, or what the reason . . .). Schmuck kicked open the stall door, knife in hand, demanded wallet. Deputy gave him two rounds, instead.

    I'da loved to have seen the luck on the wannabe robber's face.

    The above is based on second-hand accounts & news reports; can't vouch for 100% accuracy in details.

    Should you flush before calling police? Or would that be tampering with a crime scene?

    :confused:

    My wife says that, for me, it should be a crime scene even without the attempted robbery and shooting.

    Ok, am I the only guy that thinks perhaps this was an A/D and the guy was covering it up? I mean....sounds to me like the guy has no witnesses, so what do you think.

    Just a thought...

    BTW one of my wonderful senators, Schumer, called on stores like Wal-Mart and K-mart to do their 'corporate responsibility' and stop selling guns !

    So how do you move perpendicular to the threat?

    Lanyard around the neck as a temp hold?

    I think the best tactic would be to stall for time, dump the magazine and hope to flush him out. At worst, it would result in a dead soldier, which would make even a bigger splash in the newspaper... unless he runs.

    That's what I think, but urinalysis may vary.

    :D

    To follow up on my previous post:

    • Buying clothes at Wally World $69.00
    • Buying a CD from Wally World $16.00
    • Being shot at while in a Wally World crapper = PRICELESS

    While we are all finding humor in what happened, and I admit there is some to be found, we are missing the key points.

    1. Be alert ALL the time. You never know where the attack will come from.

    2. What will the knee jerk reaction be by Wal-Mart and the trial lawyers? Will this guy sue Wal-Mart for damages for having an unsafe bathroom? Will Wal-Mart CYA and post no-gun signs everywhere?

    If they do, Wallyworld will suffer a massive boycott on a national level, and it will cost them far more than it will to settle any potential lawsuits. Besides, I cannot imagine that a person who is licensed to carry by a state would be the one to do something like this - it would be someone who isn't phased much by laws, so a mere sign would be about worthless.


    Uh-oh, post #666:evil: :uhoh: :evil:

    Next to the clothing, the sporting goods at my wal-mart is the largest department. I'd have to say you are right.

    I must admit that my BS meter is going off on this one. I am sure it happens, but bad guys don't usually give you a warning shot before they start demanding money at least I have never heard of it. I doubt this guy shot the holes himeself, but something isn't right in this story. Why would an armed crook try to rob someone in the bathroom when they are 15 checkout lanes packed with cash. This might have been a hit attempt or maybe the guy on the crapper had something else the BG wanted.

    I agree that the story sounds, shall we say, less than 100% credible...but it is from a newspaper report and involved guns, after all, so I'm not surprised.

    Regarding the warning, I have heard of BGs doing that - mainly the ones that are smart enough to not want a murder rap when they're just looking for a few bucks. Its one way (though not always successful) to eliminate resistance.

    Sam Adams you are correct. However, isn't that the exact point we make when advocating 2nd Amendment? The bad guys don't heed the law, but yet the solution is always more laws heaped on the law abiding.

    Precisely the point I was making, even if not in so many words...and great ammo (pun intended) for a Wallyworld boycott if its management is so stupid as to post their stores.
