    Walking the dog holster?

    First I am sure their is already a post or several regarding my question but frankly it's Sunday and I am feeling too lazy to search so I will start a new thread.

    I am looking for a good holster I can "throw on" when I take the dog for a walk. I carry a M&P 9c btw. I need something that can be used with loose sweats or sports shorts. I don't think a remora will work because the elastic waistband I don't think would hold up my gun. I was thinking one of those elastic belly type but wasn't sure if there were other options or which ones are good or not. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks for your time for all who reply.

    Belly Bands would be a good choice or i have heard one member hear say suspenders under the T-shirt with a holster . I have not tried either way but they seem like it would work .

    Not much is going to hang on a pair of sweats without being pulled down.

    Even my little Ket-Tec P3AT tries and pulls my shorts down if I'm not wearing a belt. You could try pocket carry in a light jacket or ankle carry.

    Remora, against the skin, with a snug drawstring. I walk two miles every AM with a 686 or a 1911; no problems.

    I'm looking at this for a small grab and go bag. I walk my dog a lot at night, and I want something to carry my pistol, a light, bottle of water, knife, and a few other things. Not so much of a problem in the cooler months, but handy in the Texas summer heat. I don't care if it looks "tactical" - I'm already walking a German Shepherd...

    I use a 5.11 under shirt with a p250sc chambered in 40. It does not conceal well. If I need to conceal a ppks 380 is the largest it will handle.

    Smart Carry or Pistol Wear. Both have their own elastic band with Velcro closure. Strap it on, pistol goes in pouch/pocket, you and dog stroll on ....

    You should recognize this for what it is -an opportunity to acquire another firearm. Nothing beats a lightweight J-frame (or equivalent) in a pocket holster for taking Fido for a walk. Whether it's in the front or back pocket of a pair of cargo shorts during the summer, or in coat pocket during the winter, you'll forget it's there.

    I just put the Galco IWB holster with a full size Colt 1991A1 onto some swim trunks and pulled the tie-string snug. No problems.

    I used to wear a Smart Carry holster. Now I pocket carry and I don't wear shorts.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
