I am in an interesting situation that I have not heard alot of people talk about. I get home late and night and leave early in the morning, and need to walk my dog both times of the day. It is some of the little time we get together, so I walk him for about 4 miles a day. I wear a t-shirt and mesh shorts as it is hot as hell in New Orleans even during these times of the day. I want to carry, but have no idea what I can do beyond a shoulder holster (I run with him, so it would have to stay in place during running). Open carry is legal down here, but in the golf course area I live in, I think I would send people running with my 1911 in a shoulder hoster.

Anyone have any ideas?

i used to run in a less than perfect area, but all i carried was my little kel tec 9mm in a belt holster. i would imagine that would be uncomfortable w/ a 1911. i wouldn't do a shoulder holster, the pistol would be all over the place IMO and again uncomfortable.

the only thing i can think of is one of those hide in plain sight cases like the sahara strider that blackhawk has.

good luck

Sounds like a great time for a fanny pack (assuming you have your CHL).

How about something smaller than a 1911 in an empty Camelback?

OC spray, knife, and a small pocket gun would suffice, I think.

Shoulder holsters are NOT good for running.

A fag bag might be best as it looks most natural for outdoors stuff. Other than that ditch the fruity shorts and buy something with belt loops.

When I have to run with a firearm, its generally my Beretta 92FS (M9) in a fanny pack with a spare mag. It has a tendence to bounce and shift but then I'm doing PT in a combat or hostile area. Used to run with a older Gerber Guardian for protection from dogs when running thru the Alps (guns were a NO-NO).

I carry one or both of my Keltec P32s when I exercise. They ride my front pockets of my shorts and weigh only 8oz. each fully loaded with 8rds each.

I've thrown my Glock 36 in my Camelbak while riding bikes before. It seems to work pretty well. You could easily do the same when you're walking . I don't know think that would be very good running though, especially with a 1911.

Can you put a holster on the dog? Just kidding.z

Have you considered a chest holster. Your upper torso doesn't move much when jogging so there wouldn't be alot of bouncing. Whatever you decide I think you'd have allot better luck if you downsized your weapon for your workout.

I may start doing that with my 19. I ride in some pretty remote places sometimes. Never know what could happen. I guess I don't need to worry about the condensation rusting my glock?

You should check into the Smart Carry. The guy who makes them is in Largo, FL
I have used mine for a few years now and it is great for CCW. It will work with a baggy pair of shorts and I wear mine with kakhi's and jeans all the time. Works best with a pair of pants with pleats in front for larger frame handguns but I wear mine with jeans and shorts with my Commander or my Glock 23 all the time. The thing I love is that you can carry with shirt tucked in and no one knows it is there. I have sat in hours of meetings at a desk all day and even dirve while carrying with this system. Pull your waist band of pants out with weak hand and draw the weapon. I have ran with this system and it is comfortable and works great. The only negative I would have to say it that sometimes the commander beaver tail can be somewhat uncomfortable sitting down if you have not adjusted (hiched up) your pants before sitting down. The beaver tail tends to poke you in the stomach a bit. Super simple carry rig and great price.

I wash my glock in the sink. You do not need to worry about condensation.

I quit working out.

It pretty much solved the problem.
