For use when fishing and other outdoor activities, I had a cheapo neck wallet. My wife started using it when walking. The stitching on it failed, so I looked for a replacement for her use.

At http://www.ebags.com/search/index.cf...&Nao=12&N=4001 I found a Maxpedition "Traveler" neck passport holder...$24.99 with free shipping.

It arrived this past week, and looks like it will become not only a wallet, but her method for carry of her Ruger LCP.

That setup is going to take a lot of time fumbling around to draw, when seconds count in a defensive situation.

and ur dead right there to AZ, but I don't dress for fast draw stuff. I don't wear special cloths for carry, never did, have carried for 46 years, always found a gun small enough to work for me. Today lots of new choices. to me the total element for a BG is suprise. I think if he knew you were carrying he would by pass u anyhow. they want the easy victim, not one that fights back. That minute second that you are faster might save your life, personally I don't worry about that in such a way that I am going to buy special stuff to do that with, or get paranoid over it either. as once again in my 46 years of carrying, I have never been confronted by any BG. could happen tomorrow though, no doubt about it but unless one trains alot for this fast type defense scenario, it might just be fruitless. I guess if I can't get it in my pocket, I ain't gonna carry it and no pocket holster is a fast draw holster. My 2 cents worth.

Properly set up, that really shouldn't be substantially slower than coming out of a pocket holster.

You know, I might just call Eagle and see if they can put one of these together with a built in LCP holster. 8)

Sorry jocko you are like myself, we are moving up into that older vulnerable age group, making people know you are aware of you surroundings is the first line of defense for all of us and compensates for some speed. :)

Each to their own opinion, but I have to differ with you. Take a look at the picture again. I don't see how reaching down into your shirt, fumbling with a closed bag hanging around your neck is faster than a pocket holster draw. Also, when the situation starts coming to a boil, you can have your hand on the gun ready to pull out of your pocket. Much faster than the neck carry.

Besides, at my age, I would most likely hang myself with that carry method if I was in a hurry to pull the gun.... ;D

For the places where I'm wearing a badge holder like that, it's on the outside of my garment, not underneath. That's probably where the main difference of opinion came from.

I've been using this pouch ( http://www.eaglecreek.com/accessories/pouches_waistpacks/Priority-Pouch-40445/ ) to carry my LCP while hiking. It works very well. I can keep it in the front or swing it around so that its under an arm. Either way, drawing the LCP goes pretty quickly.

Where a pack's hip belt would block drawing form a pocket holster, wearing this type of pouch with a pack isn't a problem.

I keep my ID and money in the pouch, too, so that I never have to leave my ID, money, or LCP when I go to get water, etc. The neck pouch stays with me, letting me keep my LCP under my control at all times.

I can see that I wasn't totally clear in my opening post.

My wife uses this on the outside of her clothing, when walking in sweats or similar attire. It's in a low enough position that the draw is not all that difficult. Also, she doesn't engage the entire velcro area on the flap closure, but just a thin strip of it in order to make it easier to flip that flap open. She has several other methods of carry, usually with her S&W 642, but this is one way she'll tote the LCP.
