I also took an IWB holster with me, but didn't use it. I also use it on occasion while out doing photography, or hiking. The are simply another option, when other carry methods won't work as well.
    I agree. I dont think one can always "carry by the book", especially if they are an active person.

    I know people find them convenient.
    I just cannot bring myself to wear one.
    I am 99% dressed in cowboy hat and boots, fanny pack just would not look right.

    I have one from a company called Bagmaster that I've had for about 15 years. I'm not sure the company still exists or if they still carry that waist pack. The pack is well made and works very well.

    Ask an Australian this question and watch his response.

    The one time a cop, um, interviewed me, I was wearing a belt pack.
    His first question: "Is there a pistol in that?"
    There wasn't. (I was in California.)

    To me, a fanny pack nowadays almost screams "concealed carry."

    My problem with carrying in any kind of pack or bag is that my gun has to be concealed. That means that it is either in a deep bag so that nobody can see it or it has to be zipped up. So then I had to think about trying to handle a bicycle if I have a mean dog that has ahold of my leg while trying to unzip a bag or to fish around inside it for the gun. That is why I made what I thought was going to be a chest carry rig. Wound up being what it is called a Doc Holliday carry rig because it hangs low and left. I wear a loose shirt over it and you can just barely see the top of the grip making a lump from the outside of the shirt. It would be hard for anybody to make it as a gun. I have the Isreali Security Jacket- Shabak, ordered and I am anxious to see how well it will conceal.

    The bag I linked is easier to unzip than trying to unholster a gun while riding the bike. It has a cord that hangs out to help. Also, I am not concerned about shooting dogs as I ride.

    I would like to see the video that shows somebody unzipping a bag and drawing a gun quicker and easier than just drawing the gun from a holster. As far as shooting a dog, I will defend myself against any deadly attack, either man or beast.

    I can say from experience that, with sufficient practice, the draw from a best-quality, gun-dedicated fanny pack is quick enough.
    No, it is not as quick as from a holster hidden behind an open jacket or vest. But it is quick enough.
    It's all about practice, practice, practice.

    I got rid of my fanny pack when I got rid of my rollerblades.

    While on my bicycle, I can draw my J Frame very rapidly from a rear pants pocket. If I need deep concealment the gun goes in the front pocket.

    I've had an Uncle Mikes fanny pack for years. I bought it for the old Illinois Carry Method = empty gun, full mag in pocket. But I rarely used it and still don't. Even on the bike it screams "gun". If you get on the Katy Trail across Missouri it seems like every woman has a fanny pack, and I'd guess most contain a gun. Good on them.
    Peace

    Carried a 380 in a no name leather fanny pack all morning. Like the option.
