    Fanny Pack Holsters

    For years I have carried off duty in a Bianchi fanny pack. It is getting worn out so I ordered a Desantis Gunny Sack. I am excited to see what the quality is compared to the Bianchi, which is no longer made. Does anyone else like the fanny pack holster?

    I use this one. It is only large enough for my LCP2 but works perfectly.

    I had quite a collection of fanny packs in different sizes, from minimal which would hold a small gun and not much else to so large that it looked like I was wearing a small carry-on bag on my waist. (Well, not QUITE that large) I think I had 10. They are all gone except two. Most were donated to people who thought they might want to try one to see if it worked for them. I keep the others for various uses, like holding my id and credit card holder and other small things when I'm taking a fairly heavy and large gun bag to the range and do not need to try to carry my regular large purse which is heavy also.

    I found all of the fanny packs, including the ones with good quality built in holsters, to make for a very slow draw. They also added more bulk to my middle than was comfortable.

    Note from a woman: It is sort of amazing how much stuff we carry in our purses that we really do not need on any given day! But it's our STUFF, you know!

    I bought this one a little over a month ago for a bicycle trip. I wish I would have bought it long ago. It is very well made, and worked perfectly. It looks more like a regular fanny pack than others I have seen. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I used it for a Kimber Solo.

    As hard as I've tried, I cannot get my fanny packed into a holster.

    I don't like fanny packs for guns (or anything else for that matter). I once witnessed a thief remove one from a guy who never realized it was even gone until the thief was well out of catching distance.

    Sorry, that just comes down to extremely poor situational awareness. A fanny pack may not be the ideal carry method, but at times it is the best for that particular situation.

    True. And we know all concealed carriers have highly refined situational awareness 100% of the time as we go about our daily lives. I still won't wear one but not judging those that do.

    I understand what you are saying, but honestly, with the location of the buckle, it would take a blind man with no feeling whatsoever wearing the fanny pack to enable this one to be stolen.

    Agree. Most fanny packs are designed to be worn on the fanny, which means the buckle is in front. If it was turned around to the front to contain a gun, the buckle would then be in back, or on side if chosen to be worn over the hip.

    I always use a hip pack, (no fanny location on me). I use a generic pack that looks nothing like a gun waist pack, with a long zipper to accommodate a variety of pistols. I can move the pack from 12 to 8, depending on what I'm doing.

    Not a fanny pack (still a funny word when used outside of The States), however, I like the belt pouch approach.







    The black one is from PDA Holsters, the other one is a very generic belt pouch with a foam block in it

    ....”fanny packs”....just no. I’m sorry, no dis to anyone but they just scream “mental health” to me - kinda like going to get a mullet haircut on purpose.

    No, out of the question.
    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.
