    Pistol Wear makes a soft, thin waist "pack" - it's actually too thin to be associated with the usual fanny pack - that's touted for comfortable running carry. It's not very expensive ($30 or so) and looks like it might work. I have one which I haven't worn yet for running, but I'm going to try it with my CZ Rami, which is 4 oz. heavier than a 26. I'll give you a report on it tomorrow after my daily 8-miler.

    I carry a 642 in a bellyband when I run.

    +1 on the Smartcarry....the company recommends a small I think, but I carry my G26 in a medium and it works for me.

    Man there is this AWESOME chest rig for biking/dirtbiking/mountain climbing... it looks like a hydration pack on your front. Holds a full size pistol and other stuff.

    This is an example the one I'm talking about is still selling and isn't blackhawk brand, its surprizingly constructed better I will find the store that had it... maybe CTD had it. http://www.copsplus.com/prodnum3441.php

    Have you used it jogging? I would be worried about it flopping around. I'm getting back into running and also looking for a carry solution.

    Another vote for pistol wear, I use one regularly on jogs and night walks. Works great.

    I tried carrying a G26 in a belly band. didn't work too well for the little bit of jogging I do. now I pack a charter arms undercover lite in a belly band - it rides along beautifully.

    I use an old school Everest fanny pack my parents used to sport in the early 90's when we used to go on family trips. Works perfectly.

    I've used a standard fanny pack but I also own one of these shirts from 5.11 Tactical.

    My wife kept an old neoprene Sony Discman case from years a go. It's great
    for my 642 and my I-Pod. Makes me look like an old fart with a Discman, but,
    it's a little more stylish than a fanny pack and it was free.

    I wouldn't recommend it if I didn't use it.....I've used it for over two years and logged hundreds of miles with my SmartCarry....felt a bit weird for the first quarter mile when you first start using it, but once your adrenalin gets going you forget its there....now I used it and half the time my wife doesn't notice it, and she KNOWS how I carry it when I am running-LOL

    I will have to look into that Smartcarry. I have not seen them they look like they would work well on walks and runs.

    Do you wear a t-shirt or something over it? If so, how the heck would you draw from it in an emergency? I like the idea of the shirt, and am thinking about ordering one, but it doesn't seem to fully make sense.. If you're not wearing something over it, it seems like it would be pretty obvious.. I don't know. What is your experience?

    I have the black version and I've only used it as a 'stand alone' shirt. It would be hard to tell it was a handgun in the pocket and not just keys and a cell phone like most runners carry with them.

    At night, that makes sense; I'm thinking of more along the lines of wearing it mountain biking though (primarily during the day for trails). I might be better off with a Pistol Wear band and my regular riding gear. I might still order one though..

    May just be me,....but there is not way in hejj I could run for any longer than
    about 100 yards with a SmartCarry. I just do not see it happening! The BOYS
    would be destroyed after three or four miles! :faint:
