    I know there are people on this site who don't think that fanny packs are the way to go, but in this situation it might be just the thing for you to stay low key and still carry. Maybe you can wear the fanny pack for a few days or weeks before the bowling night so people get used to seeing you wear it and won't think twice about it when you bowl.

    You might also try a new-to-you type of holster, maybe something under the arm, or built in to a t-shirt or undershirt, or even on the calf or ankle if your pant leg is sufficiently long to cover it when you sit down between turns.

    At first I thought that this was a joke like "can I juggle chainsaws while concealed carrying" but this guy is serious or maybe seriously paranoid. He even says that this is a kids soccer team fundraiser so there will be kids around. Lock your gun in the car. You'll be safe while you're bowling.

    I know in Ohio you can not carry in a bowling alley that sells and serves alcohol.

    Safety is NOT guaranteed.

    Saying "You'll be safe while you're bowling," is like saying, "You'll be safe in church." Sorry, NOT!

    I just went bowling on Friday night, I was carrying my Sig P220R in a Crossbreed SuperTuck at 4:30-5:00. No problems whatsoever. Anyone who says a G19 is too big.....doesn't know what they are talking about.

    Well I wouldn't normally carry at a kids event like this but, It's Philly and not a great section of Philly not that there are many good sections. The gun does me no good in the car I'd rather leave it at home if i decide not to carry in the alley.

    Wear a dark colored, thick material polo shirt that is one size larger than usual. (Buy a new one, or a few, if you must. They'll come in handy at other events.) Just keep adjusting the cant, ride height, and location of your CBST until you find a position that works best for bending a little bit. You're just leaning forward a bit, not bending over to touch your toes. As long as the butt of the gun isn't sticking out so far that you whack your elbow on it, it also shouldn't print all that much.

    I carry a G33 with a G31 mag in a Kholster at 3:00. I really only get the butt print if I bend WAY down while wearing a thin shirt. Even then, it isn't enough to telegraph "GUN".

    Just another point of view. Here in SC, there are limits on CC in locations where there is alcohol served in a bar-type setting; to me that means, at least in SC, if the bowling alley has a full service bar associated with it (and most alleys do have a bar) then I CANNOT bring the CCW into the establishment. Be sure of your state's rules on this point.
