    It's not a bad bag just a bit too big for what I'm looking for. I was looking on eBay they have some 5.11 tactical pistol pouches that are ok. Check them out if you get a chance. I want feedback from someone who has one

    You mean this? 5.11 Bag/Pack Tactical Pistol Pouch Black Nylon 58604 | eBay

    I thought you didn't want around the waist?

    For health reasons I carry a "man purse" with some medical supplies. I suppose I could put a holstered gun in there as well. But, I do not use it, or any other off-body device, for carrying.

    I think off body carriage is a huge mistake. There may be some specific situations in which it is OK, or necessary, but the risk of losing your pack through error, or having it stolen, plus the relative slowness with which one can retrieve from a pack, IMO make it a very undesirable way to go.

    I have and sometimes use a Euro fanny-style bag but its very slim. I got it while in Italy because the American bags look soOoo funky. Still, the carry style isn't all that popular here in the USA, so expect some negative comments. In fact, unless you're old or disabled they tend to yell 'gun'.

    I have used a SmartCarry, it goes around the waist but under your clothes. My favorite man purse is a UTG Messenger Bag. Great for field trips with dogs or kids. Has a pocket for your pistol. Holds tons of stuff. I've given up on fanny packs. They don't seem to hold enough unless they are enormous!

    +1, this is about as close as I care to get to that type of carry. IMO, it's not much, if any slower of a presentation and there's no indication you're carrying.

    My problem with any over the shoulder bag is we set them down.
    It's too easy to forget and walk away.
    Even cops have left their guns in restrooms, so anything is possible.
    I know at work, I have set my radio down and them freaked when I couldn't find it.

    I wouldn't use any over-the-shoulder bag to carry my firearm. I would consider a fanny pack type option over it, though, but only for rare occassions. I use a fanny pack to carry my ham radio and accessories when I help with public service events and am not likely to set a fanny pack down and forget it.

    - Is there a reason that pocket carry isn't an option?

    Thumbs up Gun carry bag

    How about the Safepacker from The Wilderness great concealment pack or Mcgills has a fanny pack that sells for about $60.00 called The Merlin & it looks like a winner in concealment, I am thinking of buying one myself.?
