    Curse you. Nope it was today. Had a great ride. Stopped for lunch on the bike and got some smiles from some local children. Its nice to see people that express a positive response to carrying after being asked to leave a store.

    Methinks a good retention holster would be a must on the bike. I would try it, but my bike is in storage for the season already.

    I have a Blackhawk! serpa drop leg holster that i use. It is a level 2 retention holster. The same I will be using for gun deer season!

    A little duct tape would work too! but only the stuff with flames on it.

    This is probably the best idea.

    I would hate to have to lay the bike down with a big chunk of metal on my hip.

    Don't lay it down then...

    I put about 2 1\2 hrs on today while carrying in a holster.

    Well, unless you are a member of the Flying Chair Society it's pretty much just a matter of when.

    I would think a holster on the top of your tank bag would be the safest way to OC on a bike. Or secured to the inside if your full fairing.

    I live in the city, surrounded by school zones. So until I get my permit no oc/cc on my bike. I am greatly looking forward to it
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    been offline for quite some time. was having way to much going on and people causing trouble, so i finally grabbed my wife and kid and left the city. now i log back on and am just getting overwhelmed.

    can you guys give me a crash course on the new laws, perhaps with some links for me to read up on. i heard that as of nov. 1st you could get a CC permit, but other than that i have heard nothing (yeah i've really cut myself off for a while. needed to breath and get away).

    now from this thread i'm getting the impression that vehicle carry is somehow legal now??? damn, i knew i moved out of the city, i didn't think i left the state. what happened in the least few months that i've been gone???

    PS: yes i will be researching as much as i can since i've been out of the loop for a while, but was just hoping you guys could give me a short version of what's new with some pointers for reading material.

    i would certainly never want to lay my bike down wearing a gun.....me vs pavement at 55....painful enough. me vs pavement at 55 with hunk of metal capable of impaling me on impact.......ouch.......

    maybe a horizontal shoulder holster? or dual desert eagles in ankle holsters? :-D

    Now that unloaded vehicle OC is approved for long guns, who is going to be the first to bolt a locking firearm rack on a motorcycle and drive around with their AR, etc on their bike once the Statute change takes effect?

    impaling?

    You guys have vivid imaginations.

    If, God forbid, I go down, my last worry will be a properly holstered pistol on my hip. In fact, the leather/metal would be a much better material to absorb the friction of a 200 yard slide on pavement than, say, my a$$ cheek.

    no but the laws of physics say pavement will just cheese grate your ass cheek and a large hunk of metal will penitrate........5" if your carrying a 1911..........try to fall to your weak side lol

    How's it going to penetrate? What? Do you have the thing pointed at you in the holster? I'm with Trip on this one. It'd scratch your gun up but it's probably better to slide on that than your buns. I don't want my gun scratched so I just won't ride a motorcycle. LOL

    Ever watch those guys that "ski" behind a car on pavement? They're wearing metal inserts on the soles of their shoes. The metal has a lower coefficient of friction than your butt cheeks.
