    Momma carrrying while riding

    Hello!
    I am a mom from Eastern WA. I have a Kahr CW9 that now has an arma laser. I hope to hear from ladies who ride motorcycles and what holsters they use. I ride with my "tween" daughter behind me. We are introducing ourselves to the art of self defense.

    Welcome to the forum from MN
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.

    Welcome.

    I am not a woman, but I do ride, and so does my wife. If you seach the forums a little, you can find a few threads that discuss carry on a bike. Some people just carry like normal, IWO or OWB or pocket carry. Many support shoulder holsters while riding since it keeps it off of your spine/hip area in case of a crash and is secured under your jacket. The other thing is a lot of motorcycle jackets have pockets in the chest area, inside, right along the zipper flap. Most of them are large enough to fit a pistol into. Other people will insist that you don't keep it on your body in case you go down and get hurt, and they leave it in a saddle or tank bag. But then you have the problem of arming/disarming and people seeing it, or if you go down, bags can open and scatter your gun.

    I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but you might just have to try a few different things and see what works for you with your gear, bike and riding style. Do a few searches on this and other forums though, and you will get some good ideas.

    Welcome from SC.

    I'm also just a guy, but I also ride with my 9-yr-old son on the back. I think I've come to the conclusion that a snubbie in a pocket holster, zipped up in my jacket pocket, is the best solution until I can come up with something better.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome. I am a guy and an instructor for the MN permit to carry and I ride. I wear chaps so my IWB holster really doesn't work very well. The two best options I have found are a pocket holster in my jacket or a shoulder holster. Neither is going to allow for a fast draw so I try not to get into a situation that would require that. Good situational awareness and condition Orange when riding in-other-words.
