Concealed Carry While Running

I have a question for you guys, but before I get to that, I just want to say that, I've been reading a lot in this forum over that last several months and have found it to be very informative as well as entertaining. I appreciate the knowledge and diverse opinions that you guys share.

I'm kind of a fitness nut and one of the things I do is run...mostly on trails where it's just me, but sometimes in areas where there a quite a few other people around. In daily life I carry all the time, except when I'm running. I'd like to be able to carry then as well, but I have not seen many options for holsters that look like they would work well for running.

A little more info. I'm not a big guy -- 5' 7", 150 lbs and would most likely carry something smaller when running, like my Sig P938 with an extended magazine. Summer running attire - running shorts/t-shirt. Winter - running pants, t-shirt with heavier overshirt, jacket, etc., based on the weather.

Any thoughts on methods of carry/holsters that you guys are willing to share are greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

    An AR carbine slung diagonally across your back will work.....Just sayin.... Probably keep people from messing with you altogether...

    Play around with it, man sack, fannypack, or belt holster. one of those will work with the right weight handgun.

    These seem to be designed specifically for running.

    I like those bands, Eli!!!! Not the under arm one, though. That would rub too much as the arm swings.

    Thanks Guys for all the suggestions. From the descriptions and pics I've seen, I'm partial to the bands i.e. Belly Band, but might modify it with some sort of retention strap in case I take a tumble. Not that I fall often, but sometimes I run pretty rugged trails.

    The Pro Jogger looks interesting as well, although maybe a little big. I suspect I could get my 1911 in that without any problem.

    Of all the suggestions, I like the one from Jayhawker the best. How I would love to run with my carbine strapped across my back. I could probably do it in some of the places I run, but in others, I suspect I would create quite a stir... :silly:

    I'll report back out on what I get and how it works out, just in case anyone else wants to give it a go. Thanks again...LB

    Interesting stuff suggested here, but, I'll leave the running to you kids.

    This goes along with a good gun selection. I cannot think of a better application for an LCP.

    BLOODY NIPPLES! No really, I've had them just from my shirt rubbing during a marathon. It would seem a very logical conclusion that what ever you use should be supremely tested and comfortable. Let me know what you come up with after the rejects have been weeded out.

    I had to quit running because of knee problems. When I jog, my package slaps against my knees and causes injury.

    If you're carrying, there's no need to run.

    A weapon is for circumstances when you can't run.
