Or snowshoeing, or cross country skiing? Just got my CHL, planning on some snow time this winter. My packs are generally heavy enough that I need to use the waist strap for hiking/skiing, so that means that IWB/OWB carrying is out. I could strap it to the pack's waist strap, but then I take my pack off during a snack break and walk away to look at something and my gun is away from me and unattended. How do you do it?
