    Thats funny, yet unnerving that the cop could be that careless with his sidearm. Especially since New Bern is literally right down the road from me.....

    I don't know the answer to this, but it is fairly common. I'd say every 2-3 months it makes the internet news rounds.

    I've said it before, reporters and editors can be absurdly ignorant about basic things.

    I know cause I used to be one. I worked with them, went to conferences with them and so am never surprised by what shows up in a story.

    If you are sitting on the commode, with your trousers around your ankles, you don't want your pistol exposed where someone could reach under the stall side and grab it. Some people put it on the commode tank top, if there is one, or hang it on the coat hook on the back of the door. The hook method is bad, it's vulnerable to someone reaching over the top and grabbing it and it's out of your reach. Probably the best location is in your underwear (if you wear any) so when you pull up your pants, you can't forget it. I'm surprised people would have to ask this question. All you CCW/CHP holders, what do you do?

    The "over the coat hook" method has ALSO resulted in more than one AD, when they go to take it back off the hook and press the trigger while doing so...

    Apparently the cop has been reading gun boards.:rolleyes: :D

    Leave your pistol in your holster and quit playing around with it!

    Additional emphasis added=>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

    One of the advantages of plastic revolvers is that they clean up real easy with just a single flush! :evil:

    Drop trou to knee height, and put pressure against the wasitband with knees, to keep them falling further. Keeps sidearm at easily grabbed, (by you!), knee height, away from anyone's prying eyes/grabbing under the stall door hands, etc. Awkward at first, but becomes easy with practice.
    What I used to do, when doing armored, was scope out what places I was going into that had individual locking restrooms. Better security.:)

    That would be the Glock 7 1/2 revolver. It is all plastic and invisible on airport x-ray machines. :neener:

    In a pot of water, 200 degrees and rising slowly..
    Or just sit with gun side to the wall.

    Or take it out and put in the leg of the downed trou'.

    My brother lives in New Bern and said that they probally couldn't find the right end of the gun anyway.
