I have used a belly band a lot, they tend to shift some but if kept tight they keep your pistol where you can get it quick. I tried the tee with the built in holster, when worn under a hoodie is seemed to work pretty well. I don't run much anymore so never truly got to put it to a full test. Might be worth a try.

I used a belly band a several years ago when I used to bike. I was working 2nd shift and would come home and hit the back roads with essentially zero traffic and peddle my ass off at 2am. It was quick to get to and kept me from being dinner for a german sheppard one night. He only bit me once though. No people issuess.
It worked really well on the bike. Wouldn't leave home without it on the bike. Though running would have a bit more force, I would think if it was sintched up tight enough it would work just fine.

I run 20 miles or so per week, mostly on rural roads in the day, but sometimes late-night (1am) in town. I briefly gave this some thought but ultimately decided that there just weren't many practical uses for a firearm except in the rare instance that you might need to inject yourself into an existing situation as a third party. I'm one of those odd folks that even most mean dogs seem to tolerate, so that isn't a huge concern. Male runners aren't really targets for BGs. First off, they're probably fitter than the BG. And second, they carry so little on them that the loot would never warrant the risk. I don't even carry music because I like to be aware of traffic/surroundings. And I doubt anyone wants my $25 Timex that bad, lol.

If circumstances dictated that I carry while running, I'd probably look into something extremely light and compact in a belly band. I'd consider the light 9's from KelTec, along with the KelTec/Ruger 380s. Gotta be light weight, gotta have zero movement.

Here is a jogging holster that I have been thinking about getting. Seems very versatile. It also has a waterproof liner to keep the gun nice and dry. Seems you could wear it like a belly band working out and lifting weights.

Pistol Wear - Holsters for Concealed Handguns

I might pick one up after Christmas.

Nothing I can do about that........................

It does look useful for an active person though. I will try it out and let you know what I think.

What do you carry? If you have something like a super light weight LCP or anything in that class, you could wear that with jogging pants or running shorts or what ever it is that you wear. As long as they have a drawstring you should be ok. I'm not a runner, but with my nephews around all the time, I tend to not know when I'll be making a trip aroun d the house and my IWB with blue jeans has never let it move. It's not any kind of retention holster, it simply keeps it in place by the pressure of my belt against my body. Good luck to you.

When I go jogging I carry an LCP in my camelback.

I carry my Ruger LCP in a Pistol Wear belly holster. Stays very secure and the pistol doesn't move at all; never have to worry about it popping out or getting wet from sweat.
