Yep, has a handgun, but can't buy ammo for it. I had to buy some ammo for a kid that bought a used 32 pistol off someone. After watching him shoot it and the way he handled it, I was glad he couldn't buy any more ammo for it.

Reminds me of when I went out to Robin's Sage to be a "G" we used to use are 2-quarts as ghetto bags, fill them with magazines or use them to look people's MRE's.

This is f'ing clever, though who walks about with a 2-quart canteen?

Come on Y.T., being from/in the desert we know better than to waste precious water holding space on a gun. I'll just find another place to keep my CW.

well for the purpose the OP stated -- having an inconspicuous way of carrying in public -- it seems a very clever and well executed solution. Particularly because it's using materials that would otherwise be discarded anyway (canteen leaked or was damaged). It doesn't sound like the OP lives in an area where water is as much of a concern. And I could see this being an nice stealthy way of carrying a weapon in a car or a public space where such action would not be welcomed despite being legal. Looks pretty win all around to me. And any desert dweller could probably find a similar solution using materials that aren't water related. :)

I had a leaky canteen, well what good is a leaky canteen?

Then it hit me, who suspects the canteen? It would be an ideal host for concealing a pistol during shtf, especially when you want to keep your head low.

I also had a cheap holster, one of those 7 dollar gun show holsters that seem like a good idea until you take it home and realize you bought a piece of shit..

So a little cutting and a little tinkering: we have this! Possibly my best invention yet! :D

Materials used:
8" of 1.5" web strap
1 2qt canteen
1 2qt canteen cover
1 cheap holster

Very ingenious.

You should add a Copyright claim to your images. These look like the type of things that some cop doing a search for "hidden guns" might find and then forward as a "Law Enforcement Advisory" sort of thing.

I am in awe of your search fu! After reading in another post yesterday about this I searched and searched. I tried multiple terms in both the ZS search and google. I put phrases in quotes and everything! I need more training.

Anyway badass!
