No, no they are not. That link doesn't seem to work though. I suppose the fanny pack wouldn't be able to be seen with my long shirts though. So that really doesn't matter.

I really like that monster fanny. Now if that came in bright colors I would so invest!

Finally got to watch the video. I will definitely be asking my trainer about this and how to do it without confusing Ziggy.

Very nice! Never thought you could use your horse to protect yourself. My aunt who also is a big person into horses trail riding in VT and it is remote. And she carries a 30 Cal. Smith & Weston pistol. When she goes on the trail. I would to.

Sorry old thread, but backreading and had to comment.

I started wearing a .357 Rugar on my hip when I was commuting on the urban freeways on a Harley. Worked well to keep people a "safe distance away". No reason I shouldn't do the same on a horse - should serve the same purpose ...

[FWIW: AZ is an open carry, no CCW-permit-required state]

I doubt you would ever really have to shoot somebody. You just need for them to believe that you can and will and they should leave you alone.

About fanny packs and fashion, well, who cares? I don't give fashion a thought while riding. I think about utility and comfort.

While that may be true that it might never come to that, any person who wants to carry a gun had better be willing to use it if it gets to that point. I've known a lot of people that carry guns but go around openly saying "Oh, I could never really shoot anyone, I just carry it for the intimidation factor."

The thing about that is that not every bad guy will back off if you just have a gun on your hip. Not all of them will back off even if you are pointing it at them.

That is true. You should not carry if you would not use it under extreme circumstances.

I consider my life to be worth more than the life of some insane murderer.
