    ccw while jogging

    just got my California ccw this year, thinking of getting a nathans gel pack to carry my hi point c9 in....I know c9 is cheap, but I wont care if it gets sweaty.... question is should I set safety on while jogging? it should be fairly snug in tha pack...but I don't wanna shoot myself. I know a lot of ppl are against carrying while you jog, but I jog at night with my younger kids so not carrying is not an option for me.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Smart Carry or fanny pack IMO. Shoot yourself? Only cops do that. Safety on? Get a Glock and quit worrying about safety levers and what to do, what not to do, carrying, etc. Jogging is a thing you do on a regular basis. You don't need to risk your life or think about shooting yourself.
    People against carrying while jogging? Infamous words.....you can't carry a cop and dialing 911 only eats up your 'anytime minutes on your cell.

    Carry means carry. That means all of the time. If you don't, you're just kidding yourself and opening up options for someone to take you down.

    My wife, an avid runner, biker and working on swimming for triathlons just got a Pouch sort of thing which carries wallet, keys and well, at least her glock 26. It is from Desantis holster and is called the road runner.I'll post a review when it arrives and she uses it for a while. Personally if it looks like a fanny pack with a gun I'm totally on board with that. I want any creeps to think, "Dang, that lady is packin".

    Jogging involves a lot of "bouncing" around. For me, a sidearm has to be fairly snugly held against the body, so it won't slap me to death. That pretty much means a belly band sort of solution.

    Jogging with a Thunderwear holster makes me uncomfortable just to think abount.

    Whatever you decide on; I suggest practicing with it.

    1) Are you able to retrieve & deploy the weapon in a easy manner?
    2) If you are winded from your run, can you focus? (i.e) Are you accurate?

    Welcome to the forum. Unless your carrying cocked and locked, I wouldn't worry about the safety. The gun is not going to go off unless you pull the trigger. As others have mentioned, since your jogging you're going to want something that holds the gun tightly to your body, otherwise you'll beat yourself half to death!

    I have a neoprene cassette player belt I use (anyone remember them?) when I run and a Don Hume pocket holster to slip the gun in. I'm not familiar with the HiPoint you refer to but isn't it a little big and heavy? I carry a Kel-Tec P3AT when I run.

    Surprisingly to some it's not at all. It sits on top of your boy or girl parts.

    I carry when I run or walk all the time. I typically carry either a Ruger LCP or a Kahr PM9 in a Pistolwear holster when I do. Both guns are carried in C1 with a round in the chamber and, in the case of the Kahr, safety off.

    The Desantis pack mentioned above has shoulder straps and straps around the waist. Holds it very tight against the body. Can draw weapon from either side.

    A C9 is 25 ounces unloaded. That seems like a lot of gun to carry while running. Good luck.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
