    They call that Pulling a Plaxico.

    As someone once said "your safety is between your ears".

    No it will not have a safety. But I cannot think of a situation where bending over (or dropping the gun, or throwing it across the room or being run over by a car) would cause it to go off.

    .357 is really good! I have an H&K .40 that I like but it's really pretty big and heavy for a CCW, plus it has a lot of recoil too. I did have a bag strapped to my leg for awhile with it in there plus other supplies, it was a small bag. I used that camping. It was actually my camo shaving kit bag from the Marines.

    I just put it in the bag that hangs in front of my chair between the legs. I would recommend going with an automatic like a Glock 23 or something.

    Use a shoulder holster minus extra straps, hung around the neck with the pistolE hanging down near your stomach. It won't interfere with your pushing the chair and it is quickly accessible by sticking your hand under your untucked shirt and grabbing it.
    Took a while to get used to but after a few days, it's all good.

    For EDC ''belly band holster'' could be a good option




    but for Camping/fishing,etc as you told, i prefer a ''pilot holster''

    I've had mine under my seat for about 18 months now, and its been perfectly secure. I can reach down and un-pop the gun in a single fluid movement (practiced so it becomes smooth). I never have to remember to take the gun with me, since it is always there.

    In the picture it looks obvious where it is, but that is the flash. I have never had anyone spot the gun, they are always suprised if I point it out.

    It may look a little precarious hanging like that, but I can assure you it is secure.


    The biggest danger is taking it to places you really shouldn't by accident. I have become much better at removing it before entering such places...... (in fact it stays at home until my citizenship comes through in June....).


    Also, its a Keltec 380. Costs around $250.

    I am playing the percentage game.

    Having the gun under the chair means I ALWAYS have the gun with me. Even when I'm in the shower, it is right there.

    When I go into a situation that I judge I might need a gun, then I take it from under the chair and perhaps put it under my right thigh, my pocket, or between my thighs. Such situation are; ATM visit, rolling into a gas station at night etc.

    Of course, I might be attacked completely by suprise in a time and place I had perceived no risk, and I might fall out of the chair. In which case the gun would be useless. However, the percentage chance of this scenario is acceptably low enough for me to accept.
