    I carry my HK USP fullsize in a Galco Fletch when I go mountain biking all the time and usually forget it's even along for the ride after about 5 min.

    And if you use one of those, you're not limited to a five shot .38 special J frame. You could throw a Sig 226 or a S&W 686 or 627 in there. In fact you could do that and get a Galco IWB for your .38 and wear that, too.

    Nothing I say as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice. Legal questions should be presented to a competent attorney licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    I would think accessability be slow, with a bag not designed for handgun carry.

    I think the only decent way to do it is to use the Camelbacks designed for concealed carry. It's really rare to see someone riding without one these days, and you're supposed to be able draw directly from them while on your back. I haven't used the compression-shirt style holsters, but they may be another option, or perhaps this belly-band style deal with suspenders, worn under a loose jersey

    I don't know what kind of biking you do, but if you're doing technical riding, downhilling, or even serious XC riding, I think a fanny pack is 1) going to attract far more attention from fellow riders than you'd desire; I've NEVER seen a serious rider with a fanny pack, especially worn up front 2) going to be in the way of your riding.

    1-I do not even notice my pack at the 12:00,neither does anyone else.
    2-The only camelback designed for concealed carry that isnt huge and rediculously expensive,is a fannypack!
    3-No downhill for this 46 year old man

    Put it in your Jersey back pocket, I use a jersey with a zipper over the middle pocket.

    get one of these

    Get one of these pouches for your frame. It mounts right in front of you, sits at the intersection of your crossbar and stem, Velcro mounts to both. You can quickly unzip and pull out your LCP or similar firearm in an instant.
