    It never hurt to rehash this subject for fresh input from new members. Hope this helps and we can get some new views from members.

    I have used a number of holsters when riding. All OWB for comfort. On constant is some kind of positive retention device. My normal holster is the Blackhawk Serpa CQC. I have been known to use a Galco Silhouette when I want a leather holster.
    Concealment while riding isn't an issue as I wear a jacket.

    When I used to carry my PT92, I rode with it in the front jacket pocket of my riding jacket. This is because if it was IWB, my jacket would ride up over it, and it wasn't very comfortable to Appendix Carry while hunched over all day, heh. It was basically right over my stomach, though, so probably the safest place to have it should I land on it.

    However, I have carried my 4" Raging Bull IWB a couple of times while riding. I would put it at the 4:00 position with the grip foreward (how I've always carried it), and it stayed hidden and secure.

    Here's a link to another good thread on the subject https://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/co...cle-carry.html

    My 2cents then and now was.

    1 ambidextrous safety
    2 lanyard ring on the pistol with lanyard attached (very important...and don't ask me why)
    3 practice left handed (unless you ride an ol Indian)
    4 right inside vest or jacket pocket
    5 carry enough gun (what would work great on soft targets don't work so well on hard targets)

    Lessons learned from when I was real young and stupid.

    Now I'm Much Older and only slightly less stupid.

    I always figured if I ever needed to draw and start shooting, it would be because I was stopped, and I'd honestly probably just drop the bike so I can be moving my feet and facing my target. If I'm still moving on the bike, then I just probably wouldn't stop. At first I thought I'd need a left-handed holster so I could draw while riding, but I decided two things:

    First, if I'm drawing while moving, it's because someone in a car is trying to kill me. There is no way I'd expect to be accurate enough (with my left hand, in an awkward position, while on a moving motorcycle, and on a moving target) to actually take out the driver before he runs me over.

    Second, the simple act of trying to shoot from a speeding motorcycle means Im not paying attention to the road, and am thus probably way more likely to crash on my own than I am to successfully fend off the attack.

    I decided the best thing to do would be to use the natural manueverability (well, I was on a sportbike, so this might not apply to Goldwings and such, heh) to get away or get stopped safely, and then draw and separate myself from the bike if necessary.
