    How do you carry on motorcycle?

    I own a motorcycle and was trying to think if I go for a ride and wear a t-shirt tucked into my jeans with boots how and where could I carry my 9mm ? Do you guys use/have a pocket holster? I don't have one nor have I ever seen one except for pictures here, how well to they conceal and secure the weapon? I'd be affraid the gun would fall out of my pocket once I sat down or got off the bike....
    Thanks.

    Is open carry illegal there? I use the same IWB as always on my bike. If I want to be discrete, I'll wear a shirt or light jacket over it, otherwise it's in the breeze.

    ATGATT all the gear, all the time. I just drop the 642 in the front jacket pocket and away I go.

    Bpd/ma st police

    You're right about not wanting to carry open in Massachusetts.
    I'm from Bean Town and the Boston Police or the Massachusetts State Police would be all over you in minutes. good luck there 23!

    I usually go with the SOB on my bike. It really cant work concealed unless the t-shirt is untucked though. Thinking about it, it probably wouldnt work that way unless you are on a cruiser, I suspect it would print pretty badly if you were hunched over on a sport bike and carrying SOB.

    As stated, ATGATT, I use either a IWB or a shoulder rig under a short sleeve button down. I always wear my riding jacket, even if it's just a mesh textile .

    Ditto. But I do have a black motorcycle vest made for conceal carry I wear at times, or throw on a fanny pack if I really have to.

    On a scoot I prefer a Shoulder Holster, one of the very few times I do.

    I also keep a BUG in the jacket pocket and one in the bags.

    I carry IWB with a cover garment. Weather dictates the type of cover garment. It's really no problem. Your cover garment won't be pulled up to expose your pistol.

    Thanks all for your help....especially those who ride. No mention of the pocket holster from anyone? I have read about it numerous times but apparently nobody really uses one.

    Fist holster...#41 and a Harley...great combo!
    I tuck my Glock-36 IWB strong side, 4:30-5:00...under a cover shirt or a leather vest over a T-shirt.

    Stay armed...even on the Harley...stay safe!
