Oh hay y'all. So, I am looking for a holster or some sort of rig that would allow me to carry my Beretta PX4 while I jog/run/sprint/cry after. Every one I have tried bounces around too much or moves. It doesn't neccessarily have to be concealed, but It shouldn't be overly viewable.

You may want to check out the Wilderness Safepacker Holster.  You can also purchase a runner's pack with it.  http://store.thewilderness.com/index.php?cPath=51

You really carry a gun when you jog?

Doesn't everyone?


That safepacker seems like it would flop around.  A bellyband might work for the no flopping part but not having tried I wouldn't know how well it would work for comfort and accessibility.  A smaller & lighter shooting stick with one fo those clip it draw gadget thingys might work to but I haven't tried that either.

I know I carry when I jog. I use an ankle holster made by oldman holsters he has an ebay store and he basically custom makes holsters. I use mine uven when I don't jog sometimes and I have owned it for a year and I am very happy with it.

I've never known anyone to jog while carrying a gun. I learned something new today. Please  don't take this as a slam as I am serious.

I recently started running again.  I presently don't have the right gun holster combo to do it without causing issues.  In my neck of the woods my biggest problems are going to come from people turning their stupid dogs loose.  So I sometimes bring pepper but always got a Kabar TDI knife.

Where I live it's against the law to let your dogs run loose.   So if you do the police get called.   But then again you are the police .  See full size image

Yeah its unlawful here to but they turn them loose anyway.  Beats letting their dog crap in their own yard I guess

You got that right.   I had a rottie who walked when he  pooed.   He was hard to pick up after.

I have a Camelback too, but I kinda worry about having to draw quickly. I was thinking about maybe a shoulder type holster with it, but then I might look like a total D-bag running around. I guess I'd rather be safer that dumb looking haha.

There is a item I have heard of that wraps around a persons body and is secured by velcro. Have you looked at that. Another thought is go to a track with many people there and leave your gun in your vehicle. That should be safe. I seriously have never heard of anyone jogging armed. I think your best bet is to frequent an area with lots of people.

Chief I wish I had never heard of jogging armed but last year my town had a cyclist shot by a passing car and a jogger shot at, probably the same offenders both cases, as of yet unsolved.... And another time a shiftmate almost got mugged in broad daylight with plenty of folks around, he didn't have his piece but did have pepper, that guy got 5 years in the pen. Another running spot near me has a big wild hog living in the woods and he ain't friendly, my Governor just recently shot a coyote that went after his dog while jogging... Wackos and wild animals are everywhere and there's that saying "you never need your gun until you really need it".


Most times I go running is at night, early AM, my graveyard sched has me up odd hours my days off and when I get the urge to run, I go... Need the exercise. Hope that didn't sound like Forest Gump "IIIIIIIIIIII went ruuunn-ninnn" haha.


 


 



HAHA! We all should try to work a Forest Gump reference into everything we say!


As far as the topic goes. A LOT of people I know run armed. When out alone and with minimal clothing, predetors seem to see it as a weak spot. Luckily in Arizona we can all open carry so I'm leaning much towards a sholder holster to add on to my Camel Back. Even if a LEO considers it concealed I still have a CCW permit and will hapily show everything to a LEO. It's ironic how true "you never need your gun untill you really need it" I'd much rather spend some extra cash to buy a proper running holster than not be protected without one!

Shoulder holster is  bad idea all the way around.  Its going to be flopping and pound you in the ribs.  If its a horizontal carry increases the chances of it falling out.  Whether vertical or horizontal its a retention nightmare.  Weapon presentation sucks for muzzle control.  Shoulder holsters just plain suck all the way around

I can tell you that running with a belly band takes alot of getting used to and its still not comfertable. But if you can afford it look into the 5.11 compresion fit holster shirts. They are suggested for use while working out. They have a layer between your skin and you weapon to prevent it from getting all sweaty.


Love many, trust few, but always paddel your own canoe.

Due to the current economy and the rising cost of electricity the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off until further notice. Thank you and have a nice day.

Hmmm.... I run a lot, and am about finished with my Reserve Deputy Academy.  I am hoping to start carrying soon, primarily because I run a lot in the middle of knowwhere where the I am more likely to come across a mountain lion, bear, or pot farm than I am to come across a regular law-abiding citizen.  I am thinking of getting a holster from here: http://www.pistolwear.com/holsters.htm but am concerned that it would get hot...  I guess there is no perfect option...
