    Ditto.

It is a similar situation to riding my motorcycle with the gas tank between the legs, and why I greatly prefer the IWB when I will be riding. Just my .02
    To avoid this problem, I wear my smart carry over my thigh, 10:30ish, rather than centered between the legs.

    If Air Force pilots can pull 9Gs with a sidearm strapped to them, and not have it become a missile inside the cockpit, then I think you would be fine with an LCP in your pocket on a roller coaster. It's not going anywhere.

    Glasses, hats, and such...different story...

    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    It make me laugh, too. More TM than OL, though.

    Depending on what kind of shorts you are wearing, I would not worry about the LCP falling out. Sit down in a chair and try to get it out and see how that works out for you.

    I don't think either will be comfortable, depending on what type of rides there are. Lap bars will squish the top of your leg, harneses or T-bars will press against your crotch, and then there will be lots of shaking and jerking. I would go with the pocket carry. I prefer bruises on my thigh more than the other option.

    I pocket carried my NAA at an amusement park, did not feel good on the cork screw as the bar was forcing it into me but it sure as he** was not coming out. Would I do it again yes why? Because if I could anticipate where and when something would happen I would not be there....

    I completely understand why you want to carry at an amusement park but keep this in mind, In the eyes of the law paying $9.00 for a soda is only viewed as highway robbery. It does not warrant deadly force. :)

    Why un-chambered? Is there a issue with LCP's?

    Have you considered an active retention like a Serpa or a thumb break snap carried OWB?

    I have a pocket holster for my Kahr and a smartcarry for my XD compact, I wouldn't use either if I expected to be upside down. My mtac gives me far better stability than either...

    I would agree probably not advisable to be upside down carrying a weapon but if you are going to do it, I would agree that any kind of side holster would be a problem because of the confined spaces you will be sitting in. Maybe some sort of shoulder rig with a thumb break would work. Any leather rig may be too bulky also. Possibly something like a Kangaroo Carry using a securing strap might work. With a shoulder rig you could also secure the gun by pressing your arm against it.

    I can also "click the little button" that allows me to reply and to ask my own question, which you failed to answer. Could it be that eventually we will run out of body functions and far-fetched scenarios that someone cannot figure out for themselves?

    Don't know, isn't that partially why we're here? To support each other and to ask and answer questions/ideas members have.
