Since you're from New Hampshire and I have a New Hampshire Pistol Permit, I'd bet $1,000,000 US that if you got caught with that rig in let's say, Manchester, and didn't have a valid NH Pistol Permit, you would be remanded directly to jail. Do you have a valid NH Pistol Permit Rush?

Sorry, just trying to nip a potentially nasty thread hijacking in the bud. Too many times a good thread has ended up in the toilet for that reason.

To keep on topic, where would you even buy a 2-quart canteen? I'd never even heard of them prior to this thread.

I never wanted to hijack this thread. As I said before, I LIKE THIS!

You can buy one at any Army Surplus Store very cheaply. I still have a couple extras and I think I'm gonna steal this idea for myself! :wink:

The OP lived in Portland, OR at the time he posted this in May 2008. This, with a CHL (which Armored Pig had), is perfectly legal.

Thanks for clearing that up. Murph and I only saw his current location in Virginia. Like Defeater said, "Obey the Law! Cheers!

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

I hope you're 21 and have a CHP. If not, you're going to jail.
BTW: I like it!
Wow this thread still lives! haha

I was 22 in Oregon and yep had a CHL, now I have a VA CHP. Good lookin out!

Anyways heres another low pro idea:
Nobody suspects the fanny pack! But your gun slides all around and this sucks.. Using a fabric adhesive to velcro a pocket holster in place will make your carry piece stay put!

Speaking as an ex cop, the fanny pack "SCREAMS" GUN! I used to carry one until I had a guy walk up to me and ask me, "What caliber do you have in there?" :lol:

Maybe he should have just said "post count ++"

Is that more acceptable?

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.

What you guys have to remember is, us "gun friendly" people are the only people who think "gun" when we see a dude with a fanny pack. 98% of the public has no idea.
