I'm just thinking of all the handy stuff I could put in all those pockets, AND my gun or back up gun and not have to worry about carry weight.

You could put alot of crap in there, make a woman be jealous,lol.

My wife would probably start giving me her crap to carry around and then one day I'll reach for something and find a tube of lipstick or something....

TOTALLY AGREE!

If your gun isn't CONDITION ONE, then neither are you!

It's more of a subtle draw than a quick draw. With the pack slung over my shoulder, I can casually reach back and into the hidden pocket for the weapon and slide it out. Unless I have a weapon in my face at the time of the event, I am faily confident that I can get the weapon out and in position before drawing any undo attention to myself.

That being said, not as fast as you could draw from any modern holster, that is for sure. It would not be my first choice to carry into a situation where I KNEW there would be trouble.

But, for ease and comfort, not to mention not having to worry about clothing and printing, it works really well.

I'll get some pictures up this weekend.

Why are kids even a question? If I'm carrying a weapon in a proper holster a child is not going to be able to gain access.


Kids are always a big concern when it comes to firearm safety. Whether they are yours or not. You have family and friends that visit with kids, correct?

My shotgun and pistol are always carried in condition one. You may not have time to chamber a round if you ever have to use you weapon.

I have taught my kids 4 boys and 1 girl about firearms since they could hold my S&W K22 on there own. I am not one of those parents that tries to keep them hidden. that is one of the worst things you could do. Children are naturally courious so they want to know what the big secret is that is in mom and dad's room. If you teach them they have a better understanding of what a firearm is. I would take them out and let them shoot watermelon's so they had first hand knowledge of what happens when you shoot something. When we go hunting they come along also.

I live here on the borader of AZ/NM/Mexico so each one of my kids has the knowledge of what and where is my home defense weapon is. They have have been taught what to do in case of a home invasion. We have a fall back room where they know where everything is. We do this as well as fire drills it never hurts to be prepared.

Before everyone starts yelling about this, remember this i have to drive 50 miles one way to work. So safety is my main reason for teaching them.
