    For those that are working out, cycling, or even walking around the park/neighborhood right now.... what non-traditional methods are you using? Looking for something that will work with workout clothes or something light. All I see are belly bands and such and they seem cheap. Ankle carry is not an option.

    I've got a KA-BAR branded fanny pack (one made for concealing a gun) that works okay. There are also various "messenger bags" that usually are thrown over one shoulder and are worn across the chest. I have one that has no brand name on it and it works reasonably well. They both require opening a zipper to access the gun--slower to be sure, but better than not having a gun at all.

    Hey now, I like that style. I'm gonna get one of those for my walks at Walmart in the bad weather and at our park and my neighborhood in good weather.

    When I am cycling I use a top bar bag, G26 fits nicely in one side, pepper spray, and wallet in the other side.

    I think it is a good compromise, obviously it is not on you, which is a downside. And you have to be conscious of not leaving your bike unattended with a weapon on it.

    For me I can't imagine on body carrying when I am riding in the summer, it is way to hot with just my cycling gear on, can't imagine a holster or bag on top of it.

    Right but honestly, if I take my son on a ride or if we go as a family we will probably coming from, and go straight back to, the house.
