  • Fanny Pack Help

    I need to buy a new fanny pack. My first one was great (can't recall the maker) my second was was not as good. I am looking for a nylon waist pack that holds a 4" semi auto with a small pocket for badge, wallet, etc. that is also not to bulky. Thanks.

    Brother, after over 20 years of wearing that waist pack, I'm really looking forwad to not doing it any more. I finally figured out that while I'm wearing it to my front, I have over four pounds resting (or bouncing as I walk) atop "Mr. Happy"

    I think I have lost some sensation to that part of my anatomy, and I don't know if it's just being 50, or having that weight (S&W 3913, two extra mags, handcuffs, Leatherman tool, wallet & checkbook) placed upon him, bouncing as I walk with it. Good luck in your search, but consider alternatives if you think it may protect the one you love.

    Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

      I've tried a lot of fanny pack holsters and I believe this is the best: www.tommysgunpack.com They're made here in Simi Valley, use good materials, comfortable and are quick to draw your gun from. In addition to the compartment for the gun, there is a small zippered pouch for change, business cards, etc and a larger zippered pouch for your wallet, checkbook, extra mag and/or pepper spray. The left side buckle is for taking the pack off and on, the right side buckle is for removing the pistol/revolver. Good luck!

        Hmmm, a fanny pack...haven't seen one in southern California in over ten years. There was a time, I would be in a mall and was able to pick out the off duty cops, because of the fanny packs they were sporting (along with other subtle clues)

          While "almost" as obvious as Hawaiian shirts, if you don't buy them in "tactical" black regular folks don't recognize them as holsters. Sure, cops do and some bad guys too, although I'm not sure that a BG knowing that you're armed is entirely a bad thing!

            I use a fanny pack on occaision. The model I use is a Camelback Goblin. It has enough room for a Glock 17, the hydration bladder (which is removable) and a few other pockets. It can be bulky at times but slims down with how much you put in it. The other perk is that it is not tactical black! When on a run or hike the hydration tube really "camoflages" it. Poke around the net to find good deals.

              I cant do it, just cant. I tried once when I was a Rookie and felt like I needed to be wearing roller skates with blue laces, red spandex short and red, whit and blue tank top tucked in and those big radio head phones with a white sweat band around the head phones to keep them on.

              To each his own though.

                Excuse me while I sit in the corner and giggle over the phrase "fanny pack"

                  Oh, go ahead and just admit this is your off duty gear. Seriously. We won't laugh at you...for long.

                    Not Fanny Packs!

                    They're not! They're not! They're not! They're personally issued, departmentally authorized, tactical weapon and accessory load bearing devices!

                      Check out the stuff at "http://www.code3-eee.com/". They're in San Diego and will ship. I've gotten a couple of packs from them.

                        Oops!!! Sorry, they're only "Tactical" if they're black in color and cost 100% more than others of the same design!

                              I dabbled a bit in retro 70 disco attire while roller skating. It was mainly when i use to drink. not so much anymore now that i am 100% sober. now i like baggy tiger stiped weight lifter pants and sleeveless t-shirts.

                              got a prblem with dat?
