    Do any of you carry when you go to work out at the local health club? How do you manage that?

    And why would you want to desecrate a perfectly good gun with greasy sweat?

    Fanny pack w/Glock 27 or Kahr MK-9. Small forest green pack. If people ask what's in it I tell them I've had my personal items stolen from the locker room at other health clubs before. I few nod and even ask where they can get one.

    Since I work for a health club & I'm in one of many several times a day, I'd say "YES"
    Now, while working out is another question. Answer to that one is usually NO

    Is it a good idea? With all the metal equipment, aren't the shots more likely to bounce off and injure a innocent bystander? Maybe you'd be better off throwing weights at the BG ;-)

    I normally just carry a folder. I'm looking into getting a...a...a...a dang mousegun just for that purpose.

    HS/LD- Does the fanny pack bounce up and down too much? And if you're lifting, does it get in the way?

    I find that the sweating causes the duct tape holding meow trauma plate on to come loose.

    Get a NAA .22 and try kiester carry. A good cork or perhaps duct tape as a safety strap. SuperGlue if you are going on a treadmill. You can never be too tactical.:D

    To the health club - Yes! While working out - No? We have private lockers that are really stout and lockable. Safer, IMHO than leaving the gun in a locked car. Good shooting:)
