    I will be taking a trip to a major water park later this week. I have been thinking on what to carry and how. The choices for carry are 1911 full size, G19, G26, Kel-Tec PF9.

    I will be in a swimsuit most of the time, so I think ankle carry is out. Any suggestions? :tongueout:

    Have you checked with the park to make sure you can legally carry? Even so, I wouldn't want to carry a firearm in a park, especially if you're going to get wet. :dunno:

    The only thing I could think of would be an appendix wrap or belly band and wear a shirt over it, with the smallest gun you have.

    It's most likely illegal to carry there.
    What state are you in?

    prob not legal since :

    you are paying admission
    You are entering a public gathering
    expect a visit from the local polizia shortly after you enter
    You will certainly make the evening news

    maybe put it in the waistband of your speedo? Folks probably wont notice:rofl:

    Glock 19 or 26 in a Zach holster tied to the front of your shorts. I always carry the 19 in trunks, its a little more weight but the extra barrel length prevents it from flipping when I bend over.

    That doesn't make it illegal, this really depends on the OP's state, which he failed to mention, so it's difficult to answer the legalities of this (which isn't really what he asked anyway).

    My thoughts? Smartcarry. A bellyband would work also, however when he gets soaking wet, either of those are going to print very noticeably.

    I think over at the State Pen they call it a "Prison Purse". What you can fit there is based on your experience I guess.

    Good luck.

    Pink squirt gun, with two extra clips.

    Oh crap I said clip!

    I meant clip, not magazine, to keep it in clipped into your trunks.

    :tongueout: :rofl: :cool:

    I recently went tubing on a nearby river and carried my G29. I had it in the cargo pocket of my swimsuit, with a 3 foot length of parachute cord tied from the lanyard hole to my swimsuit. It stayed underwater for 3 hours. It did great. I barely noticed it. I stopped on the way home and dumped the mag (gun still wet), just to check for function of both the gun and my hand loads. Fired just like normal.

    I'm not sure about a waterpark, that seems like trouble. A river in rural Alabama, on the other hand, just screams Deliverance, so I was packing. I was in no mood to squeal like a pig.

    Put it down in the front of the speedo. Everyone will just think you are a bit excited to see the bikinis. :rofl:

    A major water park? Then don't forget to use the marine cups.


    For the Glock striker. The Glock striker.

    You must either be 15 years old or out of your mind.
