Your Carry Method Matters
- Ankle holsters are as easy as it gets. By definition, you’re wearing long pants that will bunch up and hide your gun with no effort required.
- Off body carry methods like packs, purses, and briefcases have the same risks in the bathroom as everywhere else. Your gun isn’t attached to your body, so it’s up to you not to leave that bag unattended anywhere—ever.
- Shoulder and undershirt holsters rarely require any movement or relocation, thouch some shoulder holsters may require you to detach them from a belt. Depending on your personal movement style, you might need to be cautious about leaning forward. Enough on that.
- Fanny packs and similar carry methods will usually have to come off. Just as with a loose handgun, never leave it on a shelf or hang it on a hook. Better to pile it up between your feet on top of your pants or skirt so there is no possibility of forgetting it.
