    I suppose I can carry my P365 in it. Hill People Gear is out of stock of the colors I want right now. Looks like my fanny pack drawer may end up looking like my holster drawer. Rats! I was hoping to avoid that.
    The seller agreed allow me to return the pack for a refund so that is good. Not sure what to try next. I don't know how long the wait will be for a Hill People Gear pack. I an on the notify when in stock list.


    Anybody try a LA Police Gear Frunk Waist Pack?

    I have a spare medium Tommy's. Picked it up from ebay when they were going out of business.
    My original is still in good shape and I haven't used it in a while.

    Definitely a medium for my G19.

    If you're interested, let me know and I'll figure what I paid for it. Don't recall paying a premium.

    That would be great! Let me know. One question: Can you carry the G19 with a round in the chamber in that pack?

    The layer that divides the gun from the front compartment is thick enough that I never worried about it. You could always sew in a tie down loop and use one of those trigger guards on a string devices. I'll PM you later once I have a chance to sort through the holster drawer.

    Old Tommy's pack (size MEDIUM.... ~8"w x 6.5"h gun compartment) with G19/TLR7/407K.

    Just a bit of tight fit where the bottom of the butt touches the zipper. Opens fine with a firm tug.

    IMO if you're going to stick with a G26 or J frame than the snubby kit bag is great but for a G48 or even G19 MOS the medium is the size to go with.
    In my experience a G19 or G48 does fit in the snubby but depending on the sights you have it could get snagged by the zipper.
    Howís your draw from cross body? I canít find any good reviews of the belt pack in that configuration.

    I never tried it on the timer and itís not the fastest but Iíd rather have a handgun with a slower draw than not.
    IMO itís a great configuration when youíre not not around many strangers close quarters. I think it draws less suspicion than say a maxpedition sling.

    Since Hill People Gear and Tommyís Gun Pack have already been mentioned, the original post made me think Coronado Leather is worth mentioning. Their fanny packs are not meant to carry much gear, but are nice, well-designed gun packs that present a different appearance than a nylon pack.

    I prefer nylon for exercising so I can throw it in the washing machine, but other options can be helpful.

    What about a Hawks Pak? Looks more like camera bag than something that would have a gun inside.

    Hawke Paks makes quality gear. I've used several of their bags. If TGS can't locate his extra Eagle bag, I may go back to the Micro 1. I tried the larger Micro 2, but it was too large for my purposes. In the interest of full disclosure, however, I hooked the Micro 1 on something at the end of a Police Week 5K.I have no idea what, but it popped the strap completely off the bag. Fortunately, I had ridden into DC with another officer and could go home in her cruiser rather than riding the subway home with a gun in a bag on my lap on the subway.
