their are a few times I will carry in a bag if so its usually a maxpedition bag and if/when I have I will wear it over my shoulder for sure
I did have one person who said something like oh I have one of those bags ! do you carry your gun in it ? I just looked shocked and said what !!! I use it for the kids diapers and water bottles and slid a diaper out of it hahahahahah
but I do use it a lot to carry the kids STUFF extra bottles etc.. when going to the park etc. as it makes a good daily bag also
my almost 30 year old timbuk bag is great and I wish the new ones were so nice and simple like the old ones with just 3 nice large pockets inside and that is it !!!
otherwise like few others CCW is on your person IMHO and where it should be
comfy quality rig will fit well carry well and conceal like they are supposed to
tacticool is a lot like expo cool most dont notice our rigs anymore than any other 4x4 those that do like the cop are curious cause they are into it !!
I do go up to other cool expo trucks once in a while say hello ask if they are on expo etc..
I dont go up to ricer cars cause I am not into them ?
agree vests are shoot me first wear and something I would avoid at all cost !
What is the advantage of 'bag carry' vs 'on your body carry' anyway? Only thing I can think of is it gives you more relaxed dressing choices. IMO carrying in a bag is not "carrying" at all, it's "transporting" (like when you go to the range.)
When I drive my revolver is normally in a bag. Depending on what state I'm in it may be loaded or not (the irony being that in the areas where you're most likely to need a gun, having it loaded is illegal, and the areas where it's legal to have it loaded, you're about as likely to need a gun as you are to need a meteor shield on top of your vehicle.)
Speaking of guns, National Parks used to be "gun free zones" but I've been surprised at how that's changed. When we went to White Rim, we got our "briefing" from the ranger on duty and she made a point of saying "having guns in your vehicles is fine, but you can't do any shooting." Of course, given that most of the National Parks out west are staffed by locals, they pretty much have the local's gun-friendly attitudes, too.

A pack is just to be another option. I have plenty of holsters, but they are not always conducive to the days attire or activities. More than one windy day has proven to be a pain in the butt. On a long day away from home and office, I get tired of having it on me. If I have a ccw pack then I will certainly not leave it around for someone to go through looking for a pen etc. This is simply a search for a common pack that can also be used for ccw as well as carry an iPad, p&s camera, books, phone, wallet, water etc. Something that can do this and not look tactical is what I was asking about.
Looks like the Arc'teryx Blade 24 might be the very thing.
Chance favors the prepared mind.
All cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing. EH
Just my thoughts why bags agree they are transporting more than carrying and if you do use a bagmpractice with a bag and its not a great solution
For me its more when I am wearing surf shorts or certain situations where holster just does not work out well
Example daypack is strapped around your waist and holster wont work etc...
Agree last resort and not in place of
Well anything pink from maxpedition should pretty much eliminate any suspicions.
I warned you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew it all, didnít you? Oh, itís just a harmless little bunny, isnít it? Well, itís always the same. I always tell them
Oh, yeah they do.Originally Posted by Optimistic Paranoid;
1986 called and said "Jorts" are rad, man.
But where we gonna find rubber pants our size?
Maybe its just me but I see a man purse and I say this guy has something of value and not necessarily a CCW. Looks to inviting and easy to get to the wrong crowd IMO. Why not just a small personal carry, I find it undectable in any pocket.
