    another motorcycle question

    I have a question similar to one previously asked.
    I recently (this week) started riding a motorcycle and I was wondering what would be a good choice for a holster.I am not sure if I want to go the vest route,though I might.
    Any tips or ideas?

    I've carried my Kimber on my sportbike in a Comp-tec IWB holster. The trick is to tuck part of your shirt into the clip to keep it from blowing up.

    I also just picked up a P3AT and that works great whe riding. I carry it in a holster in my pocket. This is my primary carry method when we go out riding now.

    And congrats on the bike!

  4. Pocket Carry

    I agree with the above poster that pocket carry is great for bikes.

    A J Frame snubby .38 can be carried in almost any pocket including the inside pocket of your jacket.

    I sometimes carry a full sized 1911 on the hip when wearing a long jacket.

    Tried the shoulder holster route for bikes and it works just fine until the moment comes when you need to take off your jacket.

    Have fun on that bike and be sure to watch those intersections in town.

    Congrats on the bike. I'm going to try (as soon as it quits raining) to use my IWB with my Glock 23. I like to wear a vest but I think that it's a little too short. It works great with a jacket as long as it's open while standing. both the vest and Jacket are a little short.

    I've been riding 28 years now and Carried for 10 or so. I carried my G27 on a belt clip/appendix. I have carried my G19 and even a 1911 4:00 IWB with the "tucked shirt" method.

    If you wear a riding jacket it should have a zippered pocket inside mid chest that will allow for a quicker draw than pocket carry and most crashes will land you on your back. You don't want to fall on your firearm. I tried pocket carry but, you have no access to your gun, and since I was involved in an attempted bike jacking it's really all about getting to the gun for me.

    Congrats on puttin your hiney in the saddle for some two wheel fun..I agree with most above, pocket carry is very dooable but access is vital..and then there will be times when you will have to lock your gun up on your bike somewhere as I am sure some of your riding pals will want to visit a pub along the way..if you have a lockable trunk that work, if you can do it "discretely"..I just recently purchased a bike gun holster ( http://www.sandssalesco.com/ ) and so far it works..not sure if they can make them for any bike but worth a look anyway.

  9. I to have been riding for some time. I carry me KEL-TEC in my pants pocket or my kimber in the Comp-tec Holster. Keep your shirt tuck or I wear a leather vest to keep the shirt down.

    Well then I guess you all should know I got a new baby. 08 road king I think a 50 cal should mount on the bars. G27 with belt clip or Keltecs .It has lockable bags hard plastic for storing gun if have to. Been years waiting for kids to grow up now I can Ride again. FLHR Rides like a cloud.

    That bike holster system is pretty neat, but I wouldn't want to get caught on wet roads or in nasty weather with it. I prefer a Blackhawk CQC Serpa holster OWB with my mesh jacket over it. I'm currently looking into a concealed carry vest as well. I like the CQC because it locks the pistol in place, so there's less chance of it working it's way out. My Galco Royal Guard IWB works well also, but I keep checking every few minutes to make sure the gun is secure. It always is, but I keep imagining my expensive Sig sliding down the highway at 70. Also, sometimes I just keep it in my tank bag.
