    Question Need Advice

    I have been instructed by my doctor that I have to start exercising so the wife and I are going to get some bikes. So I would like to know the best way to carry my 1911 at the moment I have a leather OWB holster that i use daily plus I have a leg rig which do you think is the safest way to carry on a bike

    I rode 50 Km daily for ten years (40,000 miles) carrying concealed in an Action Direct chest harness holster. I ride recumbent but it will still be secure on an upwrong wedgie.

    Have you ever seen the Wilderness Safepacker holsters? I think one of these would fit the need quite well.

    I have a couple of their instructor belts and the quality is excellent. I would not hesitate to get any of their other products.

    The only problem is that I have to open carry as no CCW as of yet

    But thanks for the ideas

    not the leg holster

    I'm back to riding again....haven't figured where I'd keep my bodyguard 380...probably in my rear shirt pocket (bike jerseys have pockets for food, gear, etc.)

    I wouldn't do the leg holster...too much action in the leg for peddling, etc.

    I'll think on this one...

    Lately, I've thought about carrying pepper spray or something for the dogs I've encountered on country roads...I can only sprint so much...

    That does not sound right- local restrictions are in violation of the state constitution.

    i would choose the waist if it was me... if theres a chance you need to grab your gun i think it would be easier from the hip then the ankle... at least for me.
