My options are:
1) coronado concealment vest. Like a combo of a shoulder holster and a t-shirt hoster. It works OK, but it is another draw to practice from. I think it minimizes risk during an unintended getoff. However, I like to wear full gear when riding and the vest does not fit into that.
2) pocket carry - snubbie revolver. OK, but I do not like the lack of round capacity.
3) IWB - I like this, but there is an increased risk of injury w/ an unintended getoff.
I choose mostly
(1) option 3
(2) option 1 and 2
1 and 2 when I dismount the bike and option 2 while riding the bike (just put the vest on when I get off the bike).
If you go w/ IWB, a leather holster will be much more comfortable. If you go w/ pocket and vest, you will have to have somewhere to stow the vest (w/ weapon) while riding.
BTW, I am an MSF safety instructor/coach, so if you have any questions, fire away.
On a tangential note, I do like having a coronado vest on while driving. It is so much easier to draw the weapon from the vest than from an IWB belt type holster.
Thanks for the input from all of you. Sojourner thanks for the offer I will keep it in mind.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
