According to folklore, you should never set your bag on the floor. Chinese Feng Shui also says you shouldn’t because your bag carries your wallet, which carries your wealth. Sitting your bag on the floor is said to be being disrespectful to your wealth.
Two other quick and “dirty” reasons why not first, how dirty are floors? How many feet that have walked though what walked on the floor where your bag sits. I know I regularly when coming home with my hands full, set my bag on the table or kitchen counter depending on where I’m unloading. Seriously do you want a bathroom floor being set on either?
The second is if you are carrying concealed, you don’t want your bag out of your control at any time. So don’t set it on the floor beside you or hang it from the back of your chair in a restaurant because now someone else might be able to access your bag without your knowledge – they perhaps could reach your wealth and your gun. Nothing good every came of having someone else touching either.
Uptown Conceal always advocates that if you carry in a bag or briefcase, they are NEVER, EVER out of your control. Not for a second, anywhere, anytime.
Uptown sells table purse hooks that fold down to very small circles, so they’re easy to carry in your bag, then you can hang your bag from the table or from something like a restroom door. Something to consider.
