Creative ways to carry

If I wouldn’t look out of place in a Cowboy hat in mid WI. I would love to carry my .32 in a holster at the inside top of the hat.

Mmm… cant disagree. But if a second is making a difference, you likely have not been paying attention to whats around you.

So depending on firearm ( a great deal) unzipping fanny type bags & grasping a firearm would seem to be a problem to me as just to noticeable & inconvenient. A belly band type would appear to be better, quicker & very concelable.

For automotive carry, I have owned the Tactical Wilderness “Safepacker” for 17 years. It’s tough, durable and has thousands of miles on it. It fits directly on your lap belt portion of the driver’s or passenger’s restraint keeping your attention on the road and surroundings and preventing your sidearm from getting “trapped” in your carry holster under the restraint.

It also doubles as a between the mattress holster for those times on the road when you stop overnight at a roadhouse or hotel. I highly recommend one.

Stay safe out there.

You are welcome @Jovan. My wife and I both use the SafePacker. It’s basically our car holster anytime we go out. It takes merely a second or two to deploy a firearm from the breakaway velcro opening. And, if you leave your vehicle to say, pump gasoline you can simply holster up once your restraint is removed. Leaving the SafePacker in place on your seatbelt.

It’s made of very sturdy materials. It reminds me of a Carhartt coat for my gun. It’s that well made.

Stay safe out there.

Thank you and your husband for your service, @Jovan. I find it convenient to wear a belly band holster when I am in activewear. That allows me to switch from appendix carry to a 3-4:00 carry, depending on the activity. It also holds my firearm securely as I am running or playing with my daughter. Of course, it is not suitable if you are wearing a dress, but it can be a great option for activewear if you wear a loose top.

Yw😊. Is there a particular one you prefer? I am considering women shaper wear for running. It would conceal better in active wear for me.

I would like a picture for my daughters please

I currently have a ComforTac that I use and have had for about 2 years now… My wife has the Dene Adams brand and the Can Can Concealment.

Thank you! I also have a that band as well and will work on some other styles to have something more secure when need be. I will check out the other brand also.

This does not have a zipper, only sealing by button and its very solid. I also keep my safety on the weapon. I use this carry periodically for church. It is not my preference, as I like a blazer much better with my ComforTac band for under arm carry. But I’d rather do this then a shoulder purse carry that can be snatched easily with dressier clothing. Cabela’s/BassPro sells the cross body carry bags. Crossbody carry has also been getting popular on social media, as I see more brands selling it.

Armed and Styled on Youtube has several videos on the Phlster Enigma which looks like a bellyband/kydex hybrid. She shows wearing it in a couple different scenarios including jogging and practicing juijitsu (I don’t think they’re all in this video).

For the fannypack/waistpack crowd, that is a growing trend. They definitely don’t look like your grandpa’s fanny pack anymore. I like them because I can carry more “stuff” without loading down my pockets and I don’t look like I’ve just “given up” :rofl:

@Jovan I posted a ton of links over in this thread from a lot of female youtube/instagram and they might give you some inspiration or ideas on alternative carries.

I’m super excited to review those links! In today’s uncertainty, you MUST have an innovative way to do certain things. This was all I was stating, especially women. We must defend ourselves and our families. No one is going to do it and most don’t care too!

My husband’s fitness trainer is an avid pro2A powerlifter and introduced us to the tactical fannypack. I’ve seen multiple crosscarry options at Cabela’s and online.

Galco makes a nice Fanny pack. I have no problem wearing it. Ya can’t even see it with my shirt untucked.

I used an Uncle Mike’s belt pouch for quite a while when I lived in a restrictive state. The fanny pack was useful in places like amusement parks, before they wanted/searched everybody. Pocket carry was another option (which obviously tends to limit the size of the weapon).

Quick question since you brought it up. I didn’t know ccw wasn’t allowed at amusement parks. I live in Florida. Is it illegal?

Hello Jovan,

Here in Florida, Disney World would be the only “restricted location” area as far as amusement parks go. Of course, individual locations and business can post signs that forbid carrying firearms. However, it would be a trespass violation should you not leave if found on the premises.

Hope that helps, Stay Safe out there.
