Damn JD, I have the same bag, but in Desert Cammo.



They are very handy when I am not wanting or cannot use your holster to carry my firearm. I use mine daily at the Gym and when I attend family functions or frequent places that my choice of wardrobe would not compliment a CC holster. I also use it sometimes when riding my motorcycles.

Carry backpacks are good, blend in, do not draw unwanted attention, multipurpose, and are very natural.

Blue - This is my first Maxpedition bag. I actually got the recommendation from a guy who was here for awhile that we could not figure out if he was Mall Ninja, Wannabe or serious. The guy was all over the board and we rarely saw eye to eye, but his recommendation of that bag was top shelf and I am glad I gave it a try. It is a great "urban" bag and has plenty of room for anything I need to carry.

I would be interested in hearing your review when you get yours.

Great minds my Friend! I use mine in a lot of similiar conditions. No one thinks twice if a guy my size walks into the mall, or a restaurant, or is just out for a stroll with the dog and has a backpack slung over my shoulder, it's very common here in the PNW

Now, if I walk in with a 3/4 coat on, it's 60 something degrees outside, don't take it off until I sit down then bunch it up on my hip in the booth. Well, you are an observant guy, what would you think?

LOL.....that's why I/we carry the bag.

MB44 - It would appear you are being very responsible with your kids and I did not mean to imply otherwise. Please forgive the tone of the statement, it was meant in general, not at you personally.

In my experience, training is the best deterrent. Kids naturally are drawn to firearms, so take the mystery and mystique out of them and they become less of an interesting play toy.

Not having kids, but having a ton of neices and nephews come over, when a weapon is present and the kids are present, I do not proceed to push my views on the kids. The weapons are put up high and out of reach and the kids, thankfully, don't stay over or are there for a long enough time to have to worry about leaving them alone with said weapons. That would be when the garage safe comes into play.

As for "other" carry, I can understand the needs and definitely would recommend some sort of shoulder bag. Mine is completely innocuous to most of the world and I have yet to experience any concern or problem. Nobody is the wiser and I feel much safer.

D,... no offense taken,... what you said is the truth, and hearing it just reconfirmed that what I am doing is correct. Anyhow, we all get a bit thick skin from being here,.....

So time for conclusion :
1)I trust that I am doing the right ting with the kids
2) Seems like I need to explore the option of a "carry shoulder bag" as an option to the no holster hip carry. And from what I can see the recommendation for the shoulder bag is already in this thread.

Ohhh yeah,.. and once in the bag,... condition 1,...

Thanks guys,....

It's a hell of a bag for the price. I will take some pictures of my bag and how the weapon hides in there when I am about town so you can make an educated decision on your own.

However, if Jack and I both found the same bag for the same reasons, I don't think it was dumb, blind luck.

Pictures would be great!

Why do I trust the expertise of guys I don't even know on the internet?

Does that make me gullible?

It might.....but then I guess I am too because I think I could find use for such a bag. Not a fan of the single strap but I can see it's benefits here.
