    This whole thread reminds me of a converstation I had with my dad one day.

    Dad, "What's up with all these guys wearing fanny packs?" I say to him, "Dad, there are 3 types of guys that wear fanny packs... 1) They are gay 2) They are packing a gun in it 3) They are gay and packing a gun."

    Same thing seem to apply to murse's. Note, I have a laptop bag, but don't consider it a murse ;)

    I'll fess up that I carry one on roadtrips.

    Over this last Christmas holiday I decided to drive home to Atlanta. It's a 13 hour drive, and I'm guaranteed to drive at least 4-5 hours of it in the dark. So I used it carry my XD sub-compact .40 with a TLR3 light attached to it.

    I also carried extra mags and a large flashlight in it.

    Here's my ugly, cheap-ass sack o' toys.

    afarm5.static.flickr.com_4064_4266803722_30f7f4f0e2.jpg

    It's a $10 NexPak I got at the last Wannenmaneaaananchers show. I'd been keeping my eye out for a no-nonsense sack to keep my junk in, especially for future road trips. Going to DC taught me a lesson about how paranoid you can get just keeping stuff in a backpack that you have to take off every time you get on a subway, and the number of people there with messengers that never left their person was telling.

    I used to have a cool old WW2 gas mask bag that was the **** for carrying stuff while hiking or biking (and had pockets the size of 5.56 AK mags), but it was cotton and eventually disintegrated. I was hoping to find another one of those, but no luck. Everything else was too expensive ($80 or more) or looked like G.I. Joe goes metro. The next best thing was a nice looking stuff sack that a dude was selling, but it was in some kind of RealTree-meets-Jackson-Pollock camo scheme that was a bit stomach turning. I saw this thing just as we were about to leave, and it was cheap enough that I knew I wouldn't mind hacking on it to make it work.

    So far, I yanked all the Velcro out (noisy hangy hinderance), put in a snap buckle for the big flap, replaced all the cheap-o zipper pulls with cord, and put in a few eyelets so I could tie stuff to the big empty flat parts (where the Buck sheath is currently.) I also stuck a couple of tabs on the back so I could put on a waist strap if I wanted, which was a feature I stole from the old gas mask bag.

    Currently I've got admin junk in the outer pocket (pen, folding knife, flashlights, gum), personal care stuff (hand sanitizer, first aid kit, heat pads, bandanna) in the next pocket, tools and fasteners in the next biggest pocket (screwdrivers, sockets, swiss army knife, batteries, zip ties, paracord, duck tape, etc.), and the biggest pocket is empty so I can shove whatever I want to lug around in it. A Bucklite multi is stuck on the outside currently, but will shortly be replaced with a set of Crescent folding shears.

    Mostly this thing lives in my car, as I keep my wallet, keys, and pocket knife in my pockets. It did serve pretty good duty this last deer season as my tree stand bag.

    This whole thread makes one reconsider the term

    "being strapped"

    I used to think it meant being either broke or carrying a pistol in NE OKC.
    Hmmm...
