    Holster for wheelchair

    I'm looking for a good gun and holster for me to carry in a wheelchair. I am paralyzed from the waist down from a A.T.V accident. I am working on getting my carry conceal but I can not find a good comfortable combination gun and holster. I have a High Point 380 and a nylon holster with belt clip right now. Its just to heavy of a gun to carry and conceal in a wheelchair. Anybody have any ideas on a good combination of gun and holster. Thank you. ( Pete )

    Sorry to hear of your accident. Best wishes to you. Ditch the above.... IMO. How about a fanny pack (one made to be used for CCW) and and a compact/subcompact semi-auto or an Airweight revolver?

    Sorry Pete I too have a spinal cord injury but not confined to a chair all the time.Trying to draw from a regular chair is hard with the arm rests in the way,if you have a Quickie that doesn't have the high arm rests might be easier to draw from a waist holster,otherwise finding a fanny pack with a quick side access you can just reach in and draw your gun out.
    They make a lot of single and double stack compact handguns nowadays that would work,including snub nose revolvers

    There is a man in Grants Pass, Oregon that makes it possible to attach a holster to a wheelchair and they are nice!! I have seen a couple of wheelchairs with attached holsters that he has done and they looked very nice. Here is a link to his website and there is info there on how to contact him.

    This would be an "off body" possibility, if you could make it work:

    I have two of his OWB holsters: good work, good price and quick shipping.

    If you wear a belt, have you considered OWB crossdraw? The Skycop is one example I have seen online.

    What about a shoulder holster? Galco has one for about $75. Also a polymer framed pistol like ruger SR9c or a police trade Glock can be had for around $400, will be more comfortable than the High Point weight wise.

    I think the OWB crossdraw is a great suggestion, I like that when I drive or fly.

    Crossdraw belt holster with a revolver, either a steel J-frame or a snubbie K-frame. This one is a crossdraw snap-loop by Ray Cory of Lobo Gunleather.

    OK did a little thinking ( had to stop cause my brain hurts easily ) I have spent months in a chair myself ( and will again ) but at that time I did not carry. Having said that, as I recall there is squat for room between hips and sides making a hip draw difficult, and outside the rests is the wheels so it would have to be forward of them. To have it as accessible as possible I would think shoulder holster OR cargo pants and use the front pocket. If handy or know anyone that is, might see about adding a console to each side like a center console in a car, just narrower. Lift the arm rest and have a narrow compartment. If one on each side it gives room to carry extra stuff too.
