    Ok...maybe suggestions then....

    I am looking for a carry holster for while I am riding my motorcycle. I am thinking IWB, but was concerned about whether the seat would push up the muzzle and cause the pistol to dislodge and possibly drop.

    Can anyone share with me what holster they use for carry on a motorcycle?

    Thanks!

    I just carry my normal carry method on the bike, either OWB or IWB. I have never had a problem with retention. If your holster can't stand up to the stress of a motorcycle ride, you need a new holster.

    My holster options never changed on my Harley. Whatever I was using that day, went on my bike with me...either an IWB/SOB, or an IWB strong side.
    Never had a problem...

    I carry OWB when riding my crotch rocket. Most others that I ride with also carry OWB. My riding jacket usually covers it up a bit.

    I don't change the way I carry when I ride.

    This would be why I asked if anyone knew of an IWB holster with a thumb break. ('nother thread) While it is nice to hear that most folks don't find they need one, I would still like to find one.

    For anyone familiar, I ride a VTX1300R and I fit the seat rather well. I have started paying attention to where I make contact with the back of the seat and that was what had me wondering if the seat would dislodge a holstered pistol.

    Thanks for the input gang!

    I agree, retention straps are a good idea that time almost forgot. Many believe they're not as important for conceal carry but frankly, I prefer them but the market is what it is. There are many stories of people, including LEO's, whereby someone was shot with their own gun as a result of a physical struggle.

    Though I normally continue to carry appendix IWB on occasion I switch to 4 o clock in a Desantis IWB. It has a postive click and am quite confident it will retain it. I also ride in a jacket year round I feel that helps pull it toward my body more.

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Motorcycle or bike, I use a WWII "Tanker" shoulder holster. I got mine from Pacific Canvas. It is reasonably comfortable if not very comfortable and it has a retention strap. It is a little slow on the draw, but it is secure and safe. It is also the same style that I carried in Nam in '71. It is a good way to carry.
