    A fanny pack might be something to look at also.

    Having similar issues, I think the belt pack is a good idea. At times, I carry my 605 in a shoulder holster. Works good in the cooler months. Here's an odd suggestion. Use a blanket or other cover and tuck it under your leg or something. I've done that in my vehicle when in problem areas.

    With my age close to yours I've found the OWB cross draw and inside pockets on vests and jackets work for me

    When you say "belly bag" are you referring to a fanny pack?

    I use a fanny pack on occasion and it works just fine. My only complaint with the cheapie I bought is all the zipper pull strings are the same color and same length. Something that could be changed easy enough but I haven't bothered with it yet. Perhaps the biggest plus is the pack can be placed anywhere around your waist that works for you.

    BangBang, I like you am over 70, 72 in fact, and like you can only walk a few feet.
    So I also use mobility scooters to get around. I also have Rotator cuff damage in both shoulders, bad enough that I can't remove a handgun from a holster on my side, only cross draw.
    I carry my XD40 in a Serpa holster (OC or CC) at the 1:30 position (I'm left handed) tilted so the barrel is about 30 degrees from parallel to the belt.
    When I go deep CC I carry my S&W 642 in a $5 knockoff (25 year old) of an Uncle Mikes cheapie 4 way (IWB/OWB horizontal or vertical with retaining snap strap) ambidextrous holster.
    One nice thing about carrying the way I do is my hand is always just inches away from my gun.
    Pics of my 642 in the cheap holster. Sorry no pics of the Serpa holster.

    I found a pic of me carrying XP40 in my serpa holster from 6 years ago.
    Since that pic I've added a little more tilt to it.

    I have pretty much switched back to my old shoulder holsters for all out of pocket carry. Even broke down and bought a new one for my snubby revolver.
    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy!

    Sounds like you have pulmonary hypertension. I would go with the chest pack noted earlier in this thread.

    And, in these parts, they still scream, "I HAVE A GUN!" unless they are being carried by obvious tourists (we get a few of them), folks in workout clothes near a gym or someone like the OP that's riding on one of the mobility scooters.

    With a major military base nearby (I can see the landing pattern for Lawson Army Airfield on Ft Benning by looking out of the window at the home), we have a HUGE retired military population and LOTS of folks riding Hover Rounds and such. Pardon me for sounding harsh, but one more old guy on a scooter that's wearing a fanny pack isn't going to raise any eyebrows on even the most skeptical or paranoid person in town.

    Last time I heard, the whole idea behind 'concealed carry' was to blend in with the sheeple. Drawing attention to one's self is kinda the opposite of 'blending in', ain't it?
