Re: Carrying While Riding
Bit of an update.
I took the concealed carry class (which was a LOT of fun) and applied for my permit so now I'm just waiting.
I checked out a few guns at a local gun shop, and decided on a S&W M&P Shield .40. It's small enough to tuck away easily, but the size is perfect for my hand. It shoots very well, and just feels good to hold.
I decided to go with a regular IWB holster. I tried my dad's shoulder holster on with my motorcycle jacket and while it didn't feel weird, the issue of not being able to take off the jacket is too big for me.
In the small of the back was another one I thought of, but decided against. Regardless of where the gun is, if you crash it's going to hurt you, and I'd rather damage a hip or leg than it do something to my back or spine.
