The arrival of my daughter, Gretel, has introduced an interesting problem. Mrs. Hans and I are big proponents of babywearing. When Mrs. Hans is at work, Gretel spends most of her time in a semi-structured infant carrier, pressed against my chest. This limits my carry options, as my belt is inacessable, and a shoulder holster is not an option.

It seems my options are limited to off-body carry in my diaper bag (which is actually a pretty solid draw platform), or pocket carry (keeping in mind that I usually wear 5.11 style trousers with rear slash pockets.

Pros? Cons?

Peace,
Hans

And I just figured out that pocket carry prints like a mofo.

Nah. Do you have any idea how much Galco charges for a custom infant holster?

I think I'll rock it off-body in the diaper bag. It's either at hip level on my strong side, or on the seat next to me in the APC. Unlike purse-type off-body carry, the diaper bag doesn't scream "valuables."

Peace,
Hans

The pictures I've found don't do it proper justice. Imagine a serious backpackign rig - two shoulder straps, sternum strap and waist/lumbar belt. Now, wear it backwards. My trouser belt is covered by a 2.5" thick, load bearing component of the carrier. Also, the buckle fastening said belt is square SOB - a mistake on the draw could accidentally loose the buckle and drop Gretel.

Peace,
Hans

right... but at least you would be safe. kids are resilient man, they bounce.


can you get to your fly and belt with this contraption on? or is there too much weight on the belt portion for you to move it? im thinking you could arrange a holster into the baby carying rig. sew a plastic molded holster into the belt, upside down, and draw the weapon in a downward motion.
