Outback carry

Postby wingcutter » Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:49 am

Wondering how you guys carry your side arms while packing. I have a 4" taurus .44mag, I used to be able to slip the paddle holster in the waist belt of my backpacking pack, but I just got a new pack and this will no longer be feasible. I'm thinking a drop thigh holster would be a pretty comfortable way to carry while wearing a pack. I have only found one such holster that would fit:

Do any of you have revolver drop thigh holsters or reccomendations? If not, how do you carry your sidearm while wearing a pack?

Thanks

I went out and bought a military mole pack and it has molle straps on the waist strap next to your thighs. So I bought a Molle holster too and put it on the Molle straps on my thigh. Works pretty well.

No mines a Springfield XD 40. It would work fine with a revolver though. I've got a 4" bbl on my XD so you're Taurus wouldn't be too much different.

I got this pack which I also bought a medic bag with MOLLE straps to put 2 first aid kits on there (my big one and my individual one):

And I got this holster, there should be one for your Taurus:

Usually carry the XD sub on my hip when outdoors. If I get a wild hair i'll carry the 1911.

Nice, I have an 4" XD40 too, so this should make a good multi-use holster.

Thanks!

I don't know if it will fit the revolver or not. Might be worth a shot though. I'd measure the top of the frame to the bottom of the trigger guard to make sure they're close. My XD barely fits in the one I got. It was real tight at first but it's loosened up since I bought it.
