This is a discussion on How do you CCW when jogging? within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Ok, I gotta ask. Anyone jog here who also carry's while doing so? Is a fanny pack the only option?...

You lost me at jogging. A fast walk is the best I can do.
But there are MANY options for those with knees that work.
What is this jogging of which you speak?

A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.
I think it may be a silent j
so, about my sammich.......
I have been known to jog to the table at dinner time, other than that I keep it to a fast walk.

I would think you could use some athletic tape on a DeSantis holster and an LCP. I don't jog, but I can say the LCP I hardly notice doing anything at all. I like weak hand back pocket. I've practiced and this works for me.
I'm thinking running pants would not support anything but a small pocket pistol or they'd soon be around your ankles! How about using the belly band holster? Sweat would be a concern unless OVER a tshirt, concealed by sweatshirt?
Looking online for a picture of your holster...

I don't carry when I run. Endorphin's normally kick in and I listen to music. Plus I am a male, carry no money. Just don't feel the need. I am sure someone can google where a male runner with no money on him got attacked. But seriously. I will hit the Powerball before my chances of getting attacked happen.

Part of the issue is positioning: select your jogging locations in a way that would minimize the threat. (Don't jog in rough areas...) Of course, even in the nicest, most well lit area, you could still be confronted. Additionally, there's the chance that someone else's rotweiller or pit bull will get a wild hair and come after you. So carrying while jogging is a good thing.
That being said, I carry a S&W BG380 in a belly band . At the 5 o'clock position, inside the band of my shorts, I really don't notice it once I start my run. No bouncing, shifting, or unbalanced weight . It works great. I used to carry a Glock 26 in the same configuration, and it worked well too. Just wanted to go a little less weight, so I switched to the BG380.
To each his own but I have to ask this. And it is for the male runners (I can perfectly understand a female carrying protection). Do you really feel that you might need to defend yourself while running? I mean I carry 2 bucks in my tiny pocket in my running shorts or pants and a 30 dollar mp3 player. I can not imagine the odds of needing a weapon to protect me from 2 legged predators. Not saying doesn't happen. Funny thing is the first hit I found where a male was attacked was 1 year ago in the city I grew up in and ran cross country as a kid.
I have been an avid runner for 35 years (marathons and ultra marathons) and it is such a rare occurrence it is darn close to zero a male will be attacked.
My question wasI mean you are male so rape is almost out of the equation.Do you really feel that you might need to defend yourself while running?
Folks normally don't rob you for running shoes. They save that for expensive trendy basetball shoes.
Runners are not known for carrying vast amounts of cash.
As a runner, you most likely know your routes and/or have a choice of changing them to avoid "bad sections" of town.
I guess as far as an activity , being a male out for a jog is about the safest thing you can do on this planet.
