      Holster or Fanny Pack?

      I am the proud owner of a 92FS for about 20 years and have recently got a permit to carry and am looking for a holster of some kind to carry it.. In the past I have just taken the field pack with me, but I need something so I can carry by baby up close-yet out of sight.

      Any Ideas? Thanks for your help..

      Here's a recent thread about fanny packs: Fanny packs?

      I am a holster kind of guy, so I've got no input on fanny packs. I carry daily in a High Noon holster, and I have been very pleased with it.

      Where on your body are you wanting to carry (inside/outside waistband, small of back, etc.?)

      The 92Fs is a large pistol, i carry mine in a fanny pack or a hoslter made for a large compact where the 92 rides up high making it a much easier carry for me.

      Thanks to all for the comments and suggestions, but I left out a major part on my post.. I was injured in the service and am confined to a wheelchair for mobility now.. I agree with the posts saying that fanny packs are not the ideal way to carry concealed but since i wear beltless pants now, what do I use for a secure holster?
      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated..

      As you are using a wheelchair a fanny pack may be more useful, just research it and get a good one.......JJ

      shoulder holster.

      being in a wheel chair makes it difficult to get at anything - just like behind a drivers seat
      get a shoulder holster and a vest to conceal

      I've used both often ... I belt carry mostly.

      Fr a wheel chair .. I think the fanny pack or shoulder bag would work well.

      You probably know that better than us.

      Thank you for your service.

      I have used both...I use the fanny pack for BIG pistols, extra mags or speedloaders, etc. I also use packs that I find in thrift shops, NOT "gun runner" types...Mine have hiking and sport type logos, an done has Mickey Mouse on it...NOT highly suspect for a gun. I have carried 6" revolvers in one of these packs, as well as 1911's and various .357's and even a 4" Model 29 Smith .44 magnum.

      No problem with them for me.

      If you do go with a fanny pack, make sure that the compartment designed to hold the gun, doesn't have any Velcro. Always go with one that has a zipper that is easy to use.

      I have a leather fanny pack that has an over-sized plastic/nylon zipper. It is virtually noise-less. The last thing you want to deal with, is a fanny pack that has Velcro that makes a lot of noise when you try to open it.

      I often use a DeSantis "rectangular pack". Two belt loops. Not a "fanny" location.

      I wear it on my "weak" left side. It has two internal pockets. It works for both my
      SIG P290 sub-compact 9mm pistol, and my S&W .38 J-frame. Just barely enough
      room for the gun and a mag or reload "strip".

      For easy cross-draw with its zipper. It also allows access while belted in my cars.

      I have never had anyone "alert" on it as containing a gun. Including LEOs.

      I have a 92FS. It would require their "next size up" for a service size pistol.
      Hope any of this helps, good luck !
