    Looking for an IWB holster to carry my G27 when wearing sweat pants.

    I do not like those velcro tummy tuck straps and will like something that hides nicely around 5 o'clock. I do a lot of running and need something that will keep firm...tired of using an ankle holster when running.

    If I can't find a good holster to use, I may opt for one of those a quick opening "fanny pack" rigs...or just stick to the ankle rig. Might need a lighter firearm like a Seacamp .380 for pocket carry, but want to try and stick with the 27 if I can. Dono.....thoughts?? Thanks!

  2. i remember someone making a holster that strapped to your chest somehow? for running specifically... unlike those belly bands. i would definately do the fanny pack. i cant imagine how you run with an ankle holster. it would drive me nuts
     


  3. there are a few company's that sell a t-shirt type shirt that has a sewn in holster, try searching 5.11 or tactical t

    I'm a runner and I wouldn't run with a gun that big. It would be more of a pain than it's worth. If I were you I would look out for a deal on a p3at or lcp.

    When I run, I use a smartcarry and it works great and is comfortable at any location.

    If you run in sweat pants you aren't running far enough to worry about it.

  8. I would say that smartcarry is the way to go.

    Sir, I have run half marathon distances with a G17 in a SmartCarry. Running with a G27 in this holster should be easy.
     
  11. Just use a normal gun belt and holster.

    Belts don't have to go through belt loops.

    Put on your underwear and t shirt, put on gun belt and gun, then put sweats on over the top.

    I'd just run in a better place. If I really had to run with a gun, like I was spending a year in Detroit and had no car, I'd carry a Kel Tec P3AT.

    Never thought of that. As soon as I pull out of my slump I will have to try that

    I've always used an interal belt or AFPS waistpack. But running with a normal sized gun just sucks. If I'm on the road, I'll carry when I run. In my neighborhood, I don't.

    If recent events haven't convinced you that even 'safe neighborhoods' aren't, nothing will. Carry everywhere, no exceptions.

    A Seecamp 380 is a very handy pistol. I love mine. I have given away several to close friends and relatives. Everyone that I know that has one (both sexes) feel the same way about theirs as I feel about mine.
