Thanks for the great ideas guys. I don't own a gun, but the tommy's bag looks like a great solution to another problem I have to carry. ( I frequently shop at Cabela's and repurpose their hunting stuff into photography, car repair, camping etc all the time.)

If you're ever in a situation where you need your gun, you are definitely going to want it where you reach for it by habit. Stopping to wonder where it is may be the last thing you do and that would be unfortunate.

When I was in my academy days in law enforcement, we would do nothing but draw, reholster and secure, draw and reholster and secure, over and over to make it a habit. I would do the same thing with off-duty concealed carry.

Numerous times I would be in a situation and realize my weapon was in my hand and ready and not even remember drawing it.

Just my 2 cents.

I have a CC permit also. Quite often when I'm in an area where I'm by myself and there is the potential for human or wildlife predators, I carry a small semi-auto. However, I have to agree with TheGaffer. If someone grabs your bag, you don't want them to get your firearm. You're probably much better off to carry your weapon on your body.

A camera in a gun pack. What an elegant solution.

I occasionally carry my Glock 23 in a Galco A2 similar to the current Galco Elite Waistpack (external link). It will easily hold a P&S in a separate section.
The down side is that as my brother-in-law observes, to those on the job or pro crooks it fairly screams GUN and you really want to advertise the fact.

Keep it on your person or safely secured at home. I do not want my grandson looking in my camera bag and stumbling across Bompi's tools for serious social work thinking it is some kind of toy.

I try to "dress the part" when I carry in a belt pack, i.e. not with jeans and/or while wearing a jacket. It fits in great with a t-shirt and athletic shorts.

To the OP, you probably won't end up with just one solution. You'll need to be flexible.

Good Luck

Rob

I think I'm finding that will be the case, as I haven't found anything that is what I've been looking for.

..... threads like this make me kind of glad I live in a land where the gun is illegal.

Still plenty on the streets though eh? :(

Just an excuse to buy the Airweight Scandium Smith snubby! It is SUCH a light gun, put it in your pocket and you'll forget it's there...almost.

I strongly recommend that Tom (Belmondo) never stores a firearm with his camera equipment as he will be filling out more than insurance claim forms when he next leaves his kit in the desert.

Good one. :) Tom would mix up his tripod with the weapon anyway. :) love you, Tom!

we might want to discuss why supposedly enlightened people actually drink tea with milk in it. Ugh. Disgusting.

now you had to go and bring up tea, remember the last time you lot started an argument about tea you lost the opportunity to remain part of the empire :-)

To get back on topic,

I have a firearm license in the UK, but we have no provision at all for the possession of hand guns. Were I to combine the same bag for a rifle and a camera it would be a very strange bag indeed :-)

Tamrac shoulder bag with the concealeable belt. I added a nylon holster for my full size firearm if I am going to be somewhere that I might print. I also carry a small backup gun in my front pocket so that I can protect my big gun. Hope this helps

While all these may provide a workable solution I would still advocate a system of carrying so that your weapon is on your person at all times. It is much safer that way for you and those around you.

If you ever need it and don't have it you will never need it again.

+1

Carry it on your person. If you plan on carrying it, carry it on you, if you unholster it, plan on shooting it, period.

Obviously all this advice is meaningless if carrying a weapon in your camera bag or on your person is against the law where you will be doing so. Check with the appropriate law enforcement agencies before even thinking about it.

I know this has probably been said before, but the legal ramifications could be very serious.
