Noob question but is it a rule that you have to leave your firearm if you go to the bathroom? Is it against the rules to just keep it on your person? 

depends on what you're doing. if you're a dude, it's easy to pee without taking off your belt. Most dudes do that.

if you are a chick, or a dude who is not peeing, it gets more complicated. it is certainly possible to undo your belt and pull your pants down while leaving it attached to your pants and sit down and do your biz, but it makes more sense to me just stop by the safe table, bag the gun, and do my biz. I don't want to leave my gun unattended, and I don't want to drop my gun in a pool of blue poo goo, but maybe I am just being a pansy about the whole thing.

Too late to copy and paste but read 5.2.1  & 5.2.1.2  &  10.5.1

So, as usual this conversation brings up a good point. There are at least 5 rules and one glossary item that may pertain to this. The way I see the rules I think it’s debatable. Though in the long run I doubt anybody would do it.

If it's a quickie belt stays on. If I'm tired and need to sit down, bag it and then take care of business. If someone ditched belt and all in safe area, in our terminology perhaps he "knew the timer was running and was worried about an accidental discharge".

If it's #2 I usually remove my rig and place it on the floor in the cubicle or portaloo before any business takes place, gun stays holstered never had it fall out. 

In USPSA that is a DQ.

So your take on the rules is it’s ok to cheat as long as nobody sees you? I just learned all I need to know about you.

How are you going to know?

Probably because he would talk about it. If somebody I was ROING said they are going to take a dump and went in the porta pottie with gun belt on I would ask them how that worked? If he said I took my gun off then I would DQ him.

why are you so concerned about what someone does in the shitter?

You ask someone what they did in the shitter it shows a lot about the type of person you are.
