    Any women carry while running?

    My fitness has suffered ever since my best friend's cousin was murdered while on a run. I want to be able to carry while I run, but I wear tight
    fitting clothes most of the year. Are there any women (men feel free to chime in) who carry while running?

    You could always go old school fanny pack. You could wear leg warmers and a Members Only jacket with it, too.

    Not a runner here, but for working out, I've considered one of these: PT-2 Concealment Holster Similar in function to the PT-ONE, the PT-2 is a single pouch version that utilizes a smaller footprint and narrower belt. Although the pouch size can accommodate some full size semi-autos, the PT-2 Holster was designed to fi They look quite secure, and covering the entire pistol would keep the sweat off.

    I would say that a minor wardrobe adjustment would be in order. I would think a little looser tank worn over the sports bra would camouflage the holster well. Wear it up higher on the waist, and I'd doubt anyone would think "gun," the unknowing wouldn't hardly notice, or think it was some kind of exercise device (weights?) around your abdomen.

    I had thought about the fanny pack....Hadn't considered the leg warmers, but hey, they are probably coming back soon!

    Cute...Leg warmers are back in fashion, don't you know? All kidding, fanny packs would be a totally appropriate choice for the hiker (would fit right in, wardrobe wise), I think it would flop up and down (ouch!) while running or jogging. The Pistol Wear or a belly band with a velcro retention strap keeps the pistol close and tight.

    I had looked at those. I wonder if anyone here has tried one. I definitely could use a wardrobe adjustment. My husband is going to kill me with all the holsters and running clothes I have been buying!

    I tried on a belly band at Bass Pro today and don't see it working for me. I have a short waist and I felt like my revolver would have been in my ribcage.

    COVRT Pistol Pouch | 5.11 Tactical

    I wonder if I could somehow adjust something like this to go onto my water belt that I already use. Maybe if I borrowed a sewing machine I could tighten it up around the belt to help keep it from bouncing.

    Good idea. According to that site, and reading through some of the reviews there, that particular item is meant to attach to their other pieces. It doesn't show the backside of the pouch, to see what the attached system involves. Depending on how thick your water belt is (top to bottom), perhaps you could attach a pistol pouch or holster behind the belt, that way the compression would stabilize your gun.

    Look into a Ruger LCP .380. Very small, light and THIN gun. The newer .380 HP loads are about as powerful as a .38. I carry mine in like an $8 clip on nylon "Taigear" holster. Only downside is being next to your skin it will rust easily. If I have to shoot someone with it, they aren't going to care if my slide is rusty on the outside.

    For jogging you might want to consider an IWB with a retention strap.
