    I don't usually in Indiana. Only if I am going on unfamiliar trails, or along the knobstone, or camping along the trail, or if it is on a day that doesn't end in y OWB. Usually a revolver.

    Really? Two threads for this?

    Dayhikes I carry normally.

    Backpacking trips a little different.

    If I am going ultralight and only have to worry about two legged predators then I made a pouch for my LCP that rides on one of the shoulder straps.

    When I want heavier firepower such as when in grizzly country, my G20 rides in a belt holster that is threaded through the stabilizer strap of the hip belt and I have it butt end forward so I can draw it readily either handed (it's easier to draw strong hand that way regardless). Then if I need to be discreet a spare shirt or bandanna covers it easily and looks innocuous. It rides very stable there, not banging around.

    Can you send me a pic of what a modified shoulder strap pouch would look like? Great idea!

    Day hiking I carry IWB. Backpacking I really only create access to it at night but of all the people I have encountered on the trail they have all been straight outdoor enthusiasts that had nothing more than respect for nature and other people. I tend to set camp alone and in the incredibly rare event that someone wandered into the back country with ill will I will not become a victim.

    It's not modified, I made it. It's just a pouch that Velcroes shut and loops through the webbing over the padded part of the shoulder strap. I made one for the other side for my GPS. It's something I knocked together in a few minutes as I used to own a company that manufactures outdooes textiles.

    I carry something wherever I go. Bodyguard 380 fits in the front pocket or my keltec pf9 with attached belt clip in the waist. For church I carry a shield 9mm.

    I saw on the news last night that a couple of hikers were robbed at Morgan Monroe. I carry when hiking more for the two-legged varmints than anything.

    I normally carry my XD 9, but since it weighs more than I want to go hiking with, I've been looking at a Kel Tec P32. Have had coyotes come in to my camp site too close for my comfort.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
