I'm fairly new here Lima, but I would definitely not opt for an sob carry...if you lose your balance and fall backwards it could cause a serious and permanent spinal injury to you. I remember when my girls were younger (the youngest is now 12 and the oldest is 22), I used a fanny pack and carried a Stainless Combat Commander in mine, with 2 spare mags gave me 25 rounds total of 45acp. You might want to check into either Bagmaster they have one that attaches to your belt and with a zipper opening on top, or check into Tommygun fanny pack. I have both and have had good luck with the Bagmaster one when my kids were little (don't think Tommygun packs were around then.) Wish you and JD and the little one all the best. Good luck and stay safe always.
