    Safepacker

    When I first saw the name I thought it was going to be something to help me fit more guns in my safe.

    Looks like it could be useful.

    Looks a little high priced for what seems to be little more than a nylon belt pouch.

    "The Safepacker can be carried as a clutch or man's wallet for very low-profile concealed carry in an urban environment."

    1) that thing screams Tactical Timmy AKA mall ninja...... 2) the first person I see with one will be publicly ridiculed for having a murse of any kind 3) what role does it fill? Its not discreet, its not quick to acces, its bulky, and its downright ugly....... Im not feeling it.

    I have been using Safepackers since, well, it seems forever. The construction is quite a bit more substantial than a mere pouch, as they were designed to be tough enough to be used by SAR folks, compatible with backpacks, climbing harnesses, and such. Thanks to today's electronics gadgets, a Safepacker looks like just another tablet case, and, indeed, The Wilderness makes a version sized to hold iPads.

    I have walked right past security guards who were posted at the entrances of gun-free zones, in the Houston area, and none have given a Safepacker a second glance. When I have walked into police stations, I think perhaps two police officers, who did not recognize I was a colleague, have noticed the Safepacker for what it was. I would say that a Safepacker looks LESS like a means of concealing a gun, than something like a "fanny" pack, or most vests.

    Most of the comments and questions regarding my Safepackers have come from photographers, who think it is part of my photo gear. (I often wear a Safepacker on a belt, along with pouches that hold lenses or flash units, when out and about with a camera.)

    Some folks are opposed to off-body carry, and I do not disagree. If a Safepacker is on my belt, it is on my body, as securely as a belt holster, because that is exactly what it is. If I am carrying the Safepacker, other than on a belt, I have another weapon on my person; indeed, it is unusual for me to carry fewer than two guns, anyway, whether one or both are concealed under clothing.

    I've used a fanny-pack style holster with a smaller revolver. Works very well, assuming the pack holster is a good one, with internal pouches/shape suitable for a sidearm. This seems a larger variant of the concept. Similar utility.

    Saw a guy in the gym, the other day, with a simple fanny pack on him, one that was color coordinated to blend in with his workout garb. Was very unobtrusive. It could easily have held a ~7" OAL firearm and spare mags, though it blended in well. He's the first person I have seen with a fanny-pack style bag/holster in awhile, outside of tourist-type venues. It reminded me of what a simple solution it really is.

    It's a great solution... if your gym is in 1987.

    ...I've seen 'em in action...I like 'em...on the belt...haven't seen anyone using them for a catcher's mitt...or a seat-belt gun...they've been around 'bout 40 years so either they're sellin' a lot or their family's gettin' tired of gettin' 'em for Christmas...
    ...the one I've seen was for a Glock(pardon my French) Model 26...looked right neat and businesslike...
