USA –-(Ammoland.com)-†Today from Lock N Load Radio with Bill Frady;

For those that do not know, back in Jan 2015, I had one of those heart attacks that would typically kill you. The WidowMaker! Thanks to some excellent medical care and support from my family, I made it through all the trappings of recovery.

Segue to May 2016, the NRA Meet Up Louisville KY. I got to meet sponsors that I had never met face to face, listeners from all over the country, hooked up with the Nuge for a  30 minute interview. It was absolutely glorious. It also absolutely rammed home the fact that while my heart might have been repaired, I was still in some pretty bad shape as far as stamina. My weight had come down a bit, but that was a huge factor getting around the 11 acre venue. I had to make a change.

Long story short, I took up bike riding. Drastically. Started with a conventional bike and quickly switched over to fixed gear. And the overall benefits are worth every bit of pain I have endured. 68 lbs of weight loss later, my recovery is in full swing and for the first time since my 20s, I take no medication at all.

Bike riding, did however, create an issue for me that I had to solve. CCW. In SC there is no provision for open carry at all. No flashing or printing allowed. I had to find a way to both carry secure and concealed, without being in direct contact on my hip that was now rotating repeatedly for 2 hours a day. My first thought was some sort of on body carry, maybe one of those compression shirt set ups. Gravity will sort of play into that. Any sort of on body carry will also print from the resulting blowing of your shirt if you come up to speed. But I finally came up with a solution. GCode, one of my sponsors, is a very modular set up. Starting with an OSH, I decided to repurpose some other gear. I present to you my solution for CCW while riding a bike.

This may or may not work for  you, but if you use this as an impetus to go out and put together a rig of your own, my only advice is to make sure that you are covering that trigger guard.

 

And get a bike!

First of all welcome to cycling. It is a great activity that allows one to experience the world around us and stay in “shape”. I have found an easier solution. I use my Ruger LCP in a pocket holster in one of the rear shirt pockets in my cycling jersey. Because of the holster it doesn’t print. Keep up the good work.

I am also an avid road cyclist… 3 to 5 thousand miles a year on the road. I wear the typical classic cycling jersey with the three pockets across the back. I can NOT stand anything on my back, nor an item that goes round my waist. I’ll put thost things on the bike, in a pouch, pack, pannier, etc. Messenger bags, waist packs, etc, are “no go” for me. I started out with a J Frame wrapped in a cloth to avoid printing, muzzle down and outward. It was a bit heavy, but tolerable. Once Ruger came out with… Read more »
