I have often wondered how I would carry a concealed handgun bigger than a pocket pistol while wearing a waistbelt-equipped backpack during warmer months or in a warmer climate. The waistbelt sits right where the gun is normally carried, so not only would this be uncomfortable, but it would be hard to access the firearm in a hurry. An ankle holster is not an option especially in a defensive encounter (ever try bending over with a loaded pack on while fighting for your life?), and a drop-leg holster isn't an option because the idea is to keep the gun out of sight. The reason I put this in preparedness and survival is because the only time I see it being an issue for me personally is in a SHTF scenario. Any ideas?
