After the range today I'll see if my glock 34 will fit in it for you--will take pics!

IIRC, I was putting 33 round mags in it and it would only print slightly..

Seam sewn here to help 'pinch' the opening shut so nobody gets to take a peek

A heavy duty snap was sewn in place a few months ago to help further secure the weapon.
EDIT: in the last image, I apparently had sewn some 1.5" web strap to reinforce the flap--don't remember why I did it, but probably to help give the flap some structure.

Nobody suspects the fanny pack!
Whenever I see someone wearing a fanny pack I ask what caliber are they carrying. Not to be arguementative but that (fannypack) is the oldest & weakest attempt ever.

Aw man, all the pics are gone. I remembered this idea recently and wanted to refresh my memory of how it was set up, but it appears I was too late. Does anyone else have pics of the original canteen holster setup, or something similar?
