    what would be the lightest, most compact and easily concealable setup you can think of for jogging? I was thinking maybe some really small aluminum or titanium revolver with a built in clip on the handle or something along those lines. Thinking about picking something up at the gunshow this weekend. I would probably be content with a 22lr or 22mag even... Needs to be light enough to attach to gym shorts without any one noticing or having it fall off.

    My gal uses a Blackhawk fanny pack and a M649 Bodyguard .38 with reloads. I use a BHP .40 with two reloads, the fanny pack worn crosswise across one of my shoulders and the pack on my back. We also carry flashlights at night

    I often carry a Beretta 21 Bobcat 22lr when walking or working out. It is small, and dependable with the right ammunition. Wished I would not have sold my Taurus 709 Slim 9mm. It was a great lightweight and small carry gun. My own experience is either of those work well.

    the little .22 mag belt pistol, or my 'Anywhere' weapon is a 1883 .32 S&W. on the .32 the store bought ones are weak, so youll have to reload or get someone to make up hotter rounds. but it fits in my pocket and not to heavy. my home loaded 90gr go right thru a 2x4 at five feet.

    Ruger LCP gets my vote. Very lite.

    I use a small Galco waist pack and a Kahr PM40 when jogging or working out. It really is the easiest way to go.

    Any of the polymer .380's would be a good option. You could carry a gym bag to the floor and pack whatever you want.

    yea if you want anything more than a 'pea shooter' then the belly pack is the thing.

    Or learn hand-to-hand combat and run lighter? Just a thought, no judgement.

    I knew of a woman that carried an 'old' Colt 32 revolver 4" in a belly band while jogging. Actually she wore it on the outside of the clothing 'open'. She said no one ever bothered her...

    You have a few facts about that story mixed up; I'm just saying have LOTS of options for self defense.

    You can't race a car without learning to drive.

    But yeah, good options posted.

    Yeah, that was my G27. I took this pic before I had my PM40.

    I for one, do not believe a waist pack screams gun. No more than a bump under a shirt screams gun to the vast majority of the population. Especially not at the gym. If a few people do notice, I could care less. As long as i am obeying the law as far as concealment is concerned.

    Taurus LCP or Kel-Tec P3AT, very slim, very light. It's like carrying a cell phone. A clip probably wouldn't hold it very securely but you could use a belly band (probably not the quickest method for drawing, but invisible and secure).
    One time I was walking the dog and had my G26 in the cargo pockets of some shorts. Started jogging and man it felt like someone was smacking my knee with a ball peen hammer! Had to stop and try to discretely move it to a different pocket.
