Yep, me too! I think "gun" everytime I see one of those things. Besides they really stand out if you are in a pair of old jeans, worn tennis shoes and faded T shirt on a Saturday morning at Walmart carrying an Italian leather planer. It just doesn't look right.Maclean3 said:I guess it depends on your needs and comfort level but personally, I'm with Custom-guy. Between the slower reaction time and the possibility of losing it (or having it stolen) I'd be really hesitant to use one. Heck, I can walk into my kitchen for something and forget what it was I wanted (old age and CRS setting in).
The very last thing I want is for my weapon to be out there in someone else's hands - I get edgy just leaving it locked in the car when I go in "posted" businesses.
I see them all the time around here...... on tourists at Disneyland. Seriously, they are common enough that they are not noticed much by the non-gun toting public. I don't carry in one of those Desantis specials or the Uncle Mikes packs that are so large they could be called a back pack. My current one came from Target and it works quite well. I have thought about buying a gun-specific model but those have the tell-tale signs like the velcro, overly large pocket, and pull-down zippers that actually do scream gun to others. I've been carryin this way for close to 10 years now without a hitch.Tony P said:I am sorry but it kinda cracks me up that the men that pack purses think a guy with a day timer screams out GUN!!! I mean come on why ells would a man be carrying one of those fanny packs if he was not packing :biglaugh: thanks for the replys everyone....
