  1. Why do I never find handguns for free in the bathroom dammit!

    You must have had to have one hell of a bowel movement or long awaited pee to feel so relieved as to leave your firearm behind.

  2. I have never, ever understood how someone can become so complacent about a weapon that they leave it behind in a bathroom stall. Just the lack of mass on your person should tell you “something is missing…”
