Who jogs with a gun

. . . and how do you carry?

I've progressed to 6 mile runs now. Decided to go with my Ruger LCP 380 in a kydex IWB on a belt initially, but have since switched to the PT-2 now, instead of an IWB for longer runs.

With an IWB, try to keep things balanced, gun on one side, and stuff like keys/cellphone on the other side. And now that I'm using a PT-2 belly holster, it all balances naturally.

The thinness of the LCP doesn't get in the way of my arm swing, even IWB. But that was a concern initially. The PT-2 belly holster has nothing in the way of the arm swing.

I use a small fanny pack I picked up at a 1/2 marathon a few years ago to carry my LCP when I run. It's large enough for the pistol riding in an Uncle Mike's IWB holster, spare magazine, phone, and CHL. I have also used a belly band with the LCP or a larger pistol (Kahr PM9, Glock 26/27, etc.). I can carry the same items above in different pockets dispersed around my waist. The belly band is much faster accessing the pistol than the fanny pack. When I previously trained for a marathon I would sometimes place a small .32 ACP or the Kahr in a Camelback, but accessing it took more time.

I forgot to mention that I have also used the PT-ONE from Pistol Wear (www.pistolwear.com) to carry while running. I really like the feel of the material from this holster/belly band.

The weight would be even. Does it ever interfere with your leg movement?

Intersting design. Looks like it is made to ride up higher than a smart carry.

Bulldog belly band holster, look it up on amazon, they have a plethora of options, some cheaply made, but the bulldog's pretty good quality. Can easily carry my G19, but I normally jog with my P380. Has room for extra mags, a little pocket for ID's and it's fully reversible.

I run in Afghanistan, at night and I do it without a gun. If I ever find a place where I'm afraid to run unarmed, I won't run there. Joggers are not much of a crime target - forget the 10 lbs. of ninja gear and just run.

Not if it's set up correctly. Plasters may be necessary to prevent rubbing.

I jog with loose jeans generally for 5-10k. I'll have a G23 IWB comp-tac mtac. If I go on for 10k my waist will get a little sore from the belt.
