Um......that would mean it is no longer concealed at which point you are breaking the laws and will lose your CHL and go to jail.

I always carry in the car and around (CHL holder). Going to start carrying on while riding only in certain situations. If going on a forest ride, ect.. I'd leave it at home, but going into the city I would carry. The normal IWB carry probably wouldnt work while riding so I would suggest looking into a Galco shoulder harness or something. Another concern is if you were to lay the bike down and land on the gun..would probably inflict more injury maybe?

fastest way to draw would be from a IWB holster, maybe look into Milt Sparks, Galco, K&D, there are tons of quality crafters. I haven't tried riding with the IWB holster but would think the shirt would ride up to high and it would be exposed, and of course a 1 or 2pc suit would eliminate that option. A shoulder holster would probably be the best, just a quick unzip of the jacket and you would have access, Galco makes a good shoulder harness.

I carry all the time. When I went down, I went down on that side. The gun actually saved my right hip.

hey ya'll what do you think is a good gun to carry while riding a bike. I think mine will be too big to carry on a bike in Houston's heat and remain hidden like I like. You know when you are all geared up.

Thousands sign petition to make Texas an open-carry state
By ANNA M. TINSLEYatinsley@star-telegram.com
If Duane Suddeth had his way, he could strap on a handgun and wear it — anytime, anywhere — without concealing it.

That day has not come in Texas, but the 42-year-old Bedford man is among thousands hoping it is on its way.

"This is the public’s right," Suddeth said. "Whether they choose to exercise that or not is up to them."

Texas, despite its independence and frontier reputation, is one of only six states where handguns cannot — in some form — legally be worn in plain view.

Suddeth is among a group of residents wanting to change that who have joined a growing nationwide "open-carry" movement.

Some say it harks back to constitutional rights and frontier days when settlers carried their weapons where everyone could see them.

"It was considered part of everyday life back then," said John Pierce, co-founder of www.OpenCarry.org, a champion of the effort. "The concealed-carry part was what was looked at with disdain."

In Texas, where residents may carry concealed handguns if they have a permit, more than 3,500 people have signed an online petition asking Gov. Rick Perry and the Legislature to make Texas an open-carry state.

"Cowboys and Indians, and the Alamo — and many just assumed that Texas was an open-carry state," wrote Gary Williams, one of many Texans advocating for gun law change. "Clearly, there are some changes that need to be made."

Gun safety advocates aren’t so sure.

"What are they trying to do? Go back to Texas gunslinger days?" asked Richard Leal, a board member of the Houston-based Texans for Gun Safety. "Things are bad enough as it is, with people 18 and older being authorized to carry guns."

At one time I would have agreed 100% with you.

I had a gun fight almost 10 years ago that I had nothing to do with the other guy until seconds after I drew my weapon. Everyday I think about why our paths crossed and thank I'm living today and can reflect back on it. I didn't know him, we never spoke a word in anger to each other but things happened and after all this time I can still tell you that I don't have an answer as to why.

There's so much more that you carry with you when you holster a gun. The life of someone that you don't know and every family member and person that they have ever touched is with you. Your life and those you love are even heavier than the steel and lead.

You, me and everyone walking this earth goes through some trying times in this life. Desperation or just plain stupidity can cost you more than what your can afford. After we have done something we know is wrong, our family and friends can be there to help us out and maybe even look to for direction. But when we get caught up in something in an instant that gets out of hand too quickly for a way out, then there is no tomorrow.

I believe with all my heart walking away from something will give you tomorrow to think about how things could have been different. The alternative really sucks.
