Recommend A Zippered Rectangular OWB Pack

Postby Abraham » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:42 pm

I've looked and researched and looked and can't find one to fit my newest addition: A Ruger LC9S (that to be fair regarding Ruger as I was scathing in my disappoint with them, was fixed and returned in a week - kudos to Ruger)

Yes, I can find a jillion standard issue holsters for it, but I want a zippered pack that I will carry on my own gun belt, (thus I don't want a 'fanny pack' type pack, but one, designed for the gun to be carried vertically and once unzipped has an internal piece that covers the trigger and isn't as bulky as a fanny pack)

Why do I want one? Because I do a boat load of rough work in my yard from chain sawing, to power washing, to fill in the blank and I want to keep my pistol from getting crud covered. After a day's outside work, I don't want to then have to clean my pistol each and every time. Thus the need for something to keep the elements at bay...

Yes, I've looked at camera bags, cell phone pack this, that and the other kind of bag, including small tool bags, but absolutely none of them are deliberately designed for gun carry. I don't want a bag that carries my pistol loosely with a surprise as to it's posture every time I unzip it to find it's pointed ...who knows where?

There was a time in the not too distant past, I could find these zippered gun packs, here, there and yonder, but alas no longer.

Anyone here able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

P.S. If I've asked this question before, my old-timers is acting up...!

No experience just remember reading an article. (LC9 is not listed as supported and I dont know the size differential between that and SR9)

Thanks everyone for all your recommendations. I very much appreciate them.

There was a time, I wouldn't dream of being armed while working in my yard.

I have been using a 511 fanny pack to carry when I am jogging. I have used it 5-6 times a week for the last 3 years or so. It works great and has held up really well. It can discreetly carry glock 19 allowing fairly quick access. It's great for joggers, hikers, or bikers or anyone else who doesn't, mind a fanny pack.
I do realize you said you don't want a fanny pack, but for the purpose you are describing, this is worth consideration.
