How to go to the Bathroom with your Gun | PHLster Enigma

Going to the restroom is simple and safe with the Enigma and in this video we show you why!

If you’re wearing underwear that are high waisted enough for your Enigma belt to be resting over them:

  • In this case you’ll want to start by unbuckling your leg leash
  • Then bring your enigma up higher on your waist
  • Now retighten your belt to secure the Enigma out of the way
  • I’d suggest tucking the tail of your leg leash into the belt or a pocket so that you can do your business without having to worry about your leg leash taking a swim

If your underwear doesn’t interact with the Enigma belt:

  • You can simply leave the Enigma in place
  • Unsnap, stow your leg leash, and do your thing 
We don’t recommend removing your entire Enigma, one of the benefits of using the Enigma is that it’s divorced from your pants, so there’s no need to remove it in the restroom.

    This is an excellent clip showing a major advantage of an Enigma keeping your gun on your body in restroom. No need to set it on the toilet or wherever bc even LE have forgotten their weapon. Or… having it on the belt and showing “whomever” that you are carrying.

Do you need extra holster length?*

*If you’re carrying a longer-muzzled gun or a revolver, adding extra holster length may not be necessary for you, but for short semiautomatic guns, it’s often helpful.

Guns with short muzzles can be top-heavy and difficult to conceal comfortably. To solve this, some holsters have extra length added to the muzzle end. Like the keel on a boat, the extra muzzle length helps balance the holster, making it more comfortable and easier to conceal. This is especially true if you have a bit of a belly, which tends to push the grip out more and make the muzzle dig in.

Note that while extra muzzle length reduces grip printing, it can increase muzzle printing, which can be a concern with lower carry positions and tight fitting pants such as leggings or yoga pants.
