Hey everyone,

I realize not everyone likes or carries a firearm so please disregard if you're not interested. I have been around firearms my entire life. I've carried a self defense firearm most of my life too.

Sometimes when I'm riding with my wife she doesn't like my pistol jabbing her in the leg as I carry it strong side at the 3 o'clock position. So, I went in search of a solution and found Muddy River Tactical. They make a holster that has a metal support that attaches to your locking nut in your bag and the holster itself is made of Kydex. You can get right or left hand versions. This allows me to keep my carry gun with me and not drive the wife nuts. I thought I would share:

Larry and Isabel at Captain Itch – Quality Motorcycle Leather Goods & Motorcycle Heat Shields – Quality Motorcycle Leather Goods used to make these before their shop caught fire and burned down. :( They still make some of their other leather products, but I wish they could get their molds back to make more of their saddle bag holsters. I carry IWB appendix, so it doesn't bother the wife, but sometimes it is nice to store my firearm and lock it up while going into a Federal Building, (where I used to wok), or something like that.

How secure does that holster stay while riding? Does it slowly get a little sloppy, or has it stayed put since you installed it?
I hate hearing they lost their shop.

The holster is about 3k in and no issues with it coming loose. The nut stays put as does the holster. I even cram all sorts of stuff around it from time to time and it still seems to be rock solid. I love the look of leather but I prefer kydex due to the fact it doesn't hold moisture against the gun. I also carry appendix from time to time but I still prefer strong side carry on the bike when alone.

It would seem your leather setup is a bit more conservative on the space. I haven't ran into a storage issue with my holster so far though.

Indy, guess I'll never have the problem of my wife being jabbed by my carry gun cause she doesn't like to ride. But...., if she did ride and if my gun was poking her I could easily re-position the gun. Check out this holster from Holsterama. You can wear it with or without a belt, inside or outside your waistband, left or right handed, small of your back or kidney area. They make this holster in two sizes. I have both sizes and can fit most any gun I want to carry in one or the other. Most versatile holster I have ever seen and I just bought another one within the last week as a Christmas gift. $19.99 and no tax and no shipping.

No, I don't work for this company but I am just so impressed with their belt slide holster (they make other types as well) I like to make folks aware of them.

One thing to mention: Since a portion of the gun muzzle is exposed and I am left handed and like to carry cross draw, I have to be careful when wearing jeans cause the rivets in the small "watch pocket" as I call it on Levi's will rub on the muzzle if I don't place the holster just right.

I don't use leather anymore as it keeps moisture against the gun. I have multiple holsters that I cycle through from summer carry to winter carry, plus I will switch things up depending on what I'm wearing. I've never been a fan of multi-use holsters as everything is a compromise and I prefer purpose built holsters. I played with the early Alien modular holsters years ago and wasn't impressed. I also prefer to have my muzzle covered because I often sit on the ground.

I found some jeans that have a knife pocket so it keeps my holster from hitting the knife, which is nothing more than annoying because my gun is protected by the kydex. I believe they're Lee's. They also have a stretching quality to them even though they look like denim. I don't know what they did or how they achieved the stretching but they are outstanding for riding. The material doesn't bunch up around the man parts ultimately racking me. :LOL:
