    My usual exercise program is done at a private club. On bad days I use my handicapped parking privileges and hobble into the club room. On good days I park at the far end of the parking lot and hobble into the club room. My usual exercise routine is 12-ounce elbow curls, 4 or 5 reps. Then I hobble back to the parking lot and go home, relax in my La-Z-Boy recliner until supper time.

    This retirement gig is pretty tough. I doubt that very many of you young folks could keep up with me. But I have many years of experience so I wouldn't expect amateurs to be competitive.

    Blackhawk size 4. It weighs next to nothing (less than 1 ounce) and takes up very little room in your pocket.

    I pair it with my LCR, which also weighs next to nothing. (13.2 ounces)

    I've heard good things about Pistol Wear. May want to give them a try.
    Yep, I use a Pistol Wear Pt-2 when I run, I also throw my key and I.D in there too, not the fastest to retrieve but it is waterproof so your sweat doesn't get through it. I don't bike as much as I used to but my mountain bike has a nice handlebar bag that holds a firearm nicely.

    I run and bike in a basketball type short and I cannot see using my everyday setup in this way, even with a string type waistband it still does not work.

    Thanks for all the input. I do some pretty serious mountain bike riding and when running I feel that the impact is too much for my everyday setup for running, I am going to check out the Pistol Wear option.

    I just survived an unarmed walk around the block. I like living life on the edge. And that way I don't have to hold my gym shorts up as I walk.

    Shorts with belt loops are a must for my exercise attire, allowing me to carry as I always do.

    I concur.

    Lose some weight, get a new knee, and the next thing you know, unarmed walks around the block.

    Get it right. Now I'm ready for that butt-kicking contest with the one-legged man.

    When Mountain Biking I carry my G27 in a hip pack, (no fanny pack on me!). It keeps the pistol available from several different clock locations.

    If I didn't have an extremely effective on-body carry option, that is how I would go.

    Thanks, this seems like a good options as well. I do not bike for casual rides around the lake, I do some pretty hard core mountain biking and when I am not biking, I am running not out for a walk. I absolutely do not wear any shorts with belt loops when doing either of these activities so I simply cannot carry with my Tier1 Axis Slim the way I usually do. I appreciate all the feedback and know that everyone does things differently.
