    Concealment at our pool.......need some ideas.

    Now that the warm weather is here, a problem for me has been being armed while at our pool and on our deck. If I don't bury a hand gun in a towel near me I am at a loss for an answer especially while in a bathing suit.....

    Any Ideas......please.

    Depending on what you are carrying.. Possibly an around the thigh holster. Tough situation I agree!!

    Cut open a super soaker and fill it with LCP's.

    Ziploc bag to protect the gun, maybe big enough you can grip it if you need to use it. As far as carrying concealed in a bathing suit, avoid speedo style suits for one. I don't know if anyone sells swim trunks with belt loops and maybe a water resistant belt and possilbly a IWB kydex holster of course you're probably not wearing a cover garment.. Are you going to be swimming or just showing off for the neighbors?

    If you're not going to swim, a SmartCarry works very well under shorts and loose (not Speedo) swimsuits.

    If you're likely to want to swim then a small fanny pack. This is easy to take off and on, provides some protection against splashes and spills, maintains concealment regardless of what happens to your towel, can be put back in after you get out of the pool with a wet swimsuit, it not obvious that it's concealing a gun, and provides at least a small obstacle between children/friends/et al and access to your gun. You can also carry your keys, etc. and if it has a ring for it a water bottle to enhance the disguise of this being your "purse" not your "holster".
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    Smart carry might be the way to go, trunks are usually loose enough or made with elastic that would make access to the gun easier. I've never tried one but some people swear by them. I have a condition which prevents me from seeing that as a viable option.

    Get one of those small bedside handprint safes and put it next to your ice tea. Anybody asks, tell them its your stock certificates.

    What about the "SafePacker" by The Wilderness?
    Safepacker Concealed Carry Holster, Concealed Weapon Holster

    Kinda just looks like a big flat wallet or day-planner holder - or a case holding a Kindle type reader.

    I'd stash a gun nearby. There must be some way to incorporate a stash spot in wood decking. Maybe mount a holster underneath one of the railings and throw a towel over the railing if it's just going to be you, or build a box around it without a bottom, so you can reach up into it. Stain it to match. You could probably put something on the underside of the right lounge chair, too.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I know guns don't go off by themselves but my life's story is full of the improbable...
