    Gym Carry: Water bottle and Gun...5.11 Push pack?

    Hello All,

    YES, I have used search and read the search results.....I know the rules! Nothing like this exactly had shown up.

    Anyways, I am thinking of getting a 5.11 Push Pack for the gym, for my keys, water bottle, towel and gun. I will just keep it with me from machine to machine, as others do with gym bags.

    Anyone use one of these and can give me your thoughts?

    Also, if so, any place recommended to purchase?

    Thanks all!

    Looks a lot like the maxpedition versa packs FATBOY VERSIPACK Tactical Nylon Gear Concealed Carry Shoulder Sling Bag - MAXPEDITION HARD-USE GEAR Tactical Nylon Gear for Military, Law Enforcement, Tactical Concealed Carry; Tailored to Perform Tactical

    5.11 makes great quality gear but personally I rather save $$ and just buy a regular bag... something that looks more civilian.. and not so tactical

    I was thinking the same thing, about a regular bag. I asked my wife if she could sew (she doesnt sew!) a flat piece of velcro on the inside of a bag that I could attach a holster to....which would probably work best.

    I dont like these, they dont look right for civillian carry. If you were in a military gym or something, maybe and thats a BIG maybe.

    Use a Camelbak. Everyone has them and they work just fine.

    I would not want to bring attention to my carry mode in a gym...things can go 'missing'.
    I'd use just a plain old gym bag, but with an inside sippered compartment to discretely place the firearm.
    I walk at the gym and use an IWB/SOB holster (a small one) for my P-3AT. It stay in place without a belt, but I also only use the treadmill. Keys are clipped to me, and my water bottle and towel move with me.
