Pistol Pouch— A shooters personal creation

Eric Miller posted his creation in a FN owners group. He made this pistol pouch for carrying in a vehicle.

This is the chest pack I sewed for my FNP 45 tactical.
You can open carry or concealed carry with it.
It’s very comfortable to wear.
And it makes easy access when you’re sitting in the car.

It reminds me of the Pizza pouch.

 

While it looks a little absurd, it does seem rather handy. Almost like a chest holster. Some people thought the pouch might melt. However if he fires his gun so much to melt the plastic, I think he may have more concerns that take priority such as “why did he shoot that much?”.

Im not sure about open carrying such a design and curious how slow this would be to draw out of when concealed. Its not like you can leave your jacket or IDPA vest open while still concealing this.

What are your thoughts?

    where has the pizza pouch been all my life?

    • Tassiebush

      We just train wallabies and kangaroos as pizza slice porters here.

      • gusto

        we are unfortunate, our moose here have too much slope in the backs to be good pizza carriers

        a good ol boar is pretty square but they are not so friendly

        • Tassiebush

          If I was using moose I reckon I’d dangle pizza pouches from their antlers.

  • I want a 64oz pouch with a straw for my soda.

    • Paul White

      I have a 100 ounce camelback (but it’s wearing out; the things older’n hell).

      I would be lying if I claimed to have never put various adult beverages in it to sneak them places, particularly back in my college days.

      • noob

        when I put water in my camel I always forget to clean and dry it between use and it starts to smell.

        when I put vodka in, i also forget to clean and dry it, but no issues so far!

    Provide info on the pizza pouch please.

    • The_Champ

      Haha yes I’m pretty sure everyone here is more interested in the pizza pouch.

      Seriously! Where can I get a pizza pouch!?

    • Gary Kirk

      It’s on Amazon, like 8 bucks.. Posted a link, “awaiting approval”, go figure..

      • noob

        suppression of pizza-related information!? it’s a scandal! #pizzagate

          That was already a thing. It might even be funnier.

          Suppressed pizza.. That’s un Italian?? Gotta be some law against that..

          Edit: Forgot, Mrs. Obama’s health food thing is still going.. So yes, pizza is suppressed at school lunch..

          • iksnilol

            No, Pizzagate was worse than that. Some child abuse (to put it nicely) conspiracy.

            4Chan propagated that stuff for giggles and now it’s a real conspiracy theory which folks actually believe.

          • Dan

            No pizza is still allowed at school lunch, it is however a vastly inferior pizza.

    • Phillip Cooper

      It’s about time we had some hard-hitting news here.

      We need 15 articles on the pizza pouch…

    • noob

      Pizza, not Politics.

    • iksnilol

      Shirtless of course, we need to know if the pouch will protect against hot pizza.

    • mazkact

      You know of course that will kill our buddy iksnilol.

    • anonymous

      > Provide info on the pizza pouch please.

      I once saw him kill three men in a bar with a pizza. A ****ing pizza!

    • Seth Hill

      Why would anyone be interested in a single shot pizza pouch?

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Better one than none.

  • Don Ward

    It looks like a drool bib.

    • Calavera

      Or a colostomy bag. Just might work. They’ll never ask to see what inside.

      • EdgyTrumpet

        Let call it… “the Clinton carry”.

      • Don Ward

        I guess that’s taking the idea of DEEP Concealment a little too far.

      • Gary Kirk

        Well, if you need to pull your cc piece, you’re obviously in a “sh___y situation.. So, works for me..

      • LGonDISQUS

        Brilliant idea, thank you!

  • Justin

    I guess if you can’t or won’t buy a holster then work with what you got.

    I’m still trying to figure out what he means by “You can open carry or concealed carry with it.” open carry is an easy one but does he have another one with black plastic for concealed? if so does he really think he’s fooling anybody?

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      If I see some goon walking towards me with a black package strapped to his chest im shooting his suicide bomber lookin’ a-s.

      • .45

        That’s kind of funny, as I was flipping through a survival magazine the other day, and there was an article about the wonderful virtues of front packs, namely that they are in front and everything is easy to get at. The resemblance to a suicide vest was not covered.

        • Phillip Cooper

          School kids carry their backpacks that way a lot around here.

          Apparently schoolkids are getting dumber by the day.

          And no, it’s not just the dumb ones that can’t keep their pants pulled up.

          Seriously. How dumb do you have to be not to be able to figure out how to run a BACKpack, or a pair of pants?

          • Gary Kirk

            Some people are “EXTRA” special..

          • .45

            Well, there is something to be said about carrying on the front. Easy access and all. As for the pants, that’s just style… A stupid style.

          • iksnilol

            I’ve worn a backpack on the front because I already had one on my back.

          • some other joe

            Apparently the Army can’t figure it out either, because it’s almost SOP to put pack-on-front when loading school buses for transportation. Yeah, school buses. To the range, to the airfield where you’re getting on a plane to take you somewhere to start trouble, back on the bus to take you from the airfield when you get back….
            Maybe the kids are just too lazy (or the school marms are too impatient to get them to class) to transition from “bus load” to normal people configuration.

          • Phillip Cooper

            Apparently the military is getting soft. We marched to the range, or had to board cattlecars. Yes, actual cattlecars. Packed in like sardines, too.

          • billyoblivion

            1) You can sit down with the pack in front, not in back.
            2) it’s harder to steal stuff out of the bag with it in front.
            3) Fashion. Do you REALLY want pictures of you in Grade school/highschool/college getting out?

      • Phillip Cooper

        ^— This.

    • RocketScientist

      Uhhhhh, did you just scroll past the final picture? The pouch has an opaque backing. if you reverse the pouch so the backing becomes the “fronting”, voila, concealed carry.

      • Justin

        Maybe I got distracted by the Pizza pouch but the last picture I see is his back and some text about having to keep your jacket zipped up.

        No big deal, but now I want to find this FN owners group so I can see more pics or maybe get the full story.

        I’ve got an FNP 45 and with 15 rounds of 45acp in the mag it’s not a light pistol and it looks like it’s being held closed with velcro and I wouldn’t trust that to keep the pistol secure if I was moving.

        • RocketScientist

          Heh, my bad. NEXT TO last picture

  • Henry C.

    I’ve always thought a holster built into overalls would be interesting.

    • Get a pair with a pocket on the front and it’s a great place to carry a .22 for squirrels or rattlesnakes when you’re drivin’ a tractor.

  • Suppressed

    “He made this pistol pouch for carrying in a vehicle…You can open carry or concealed carry with it”.

    In PA it doesn’t matter if the gun is spray painted neon orange and taped to your face, or even if you’re open-carrying on a motorcycle wearing nothing but a speedo and your holstered firearm, vehicle carry is concealed carry. I’m not saying that’s it’s the same for the state of residence of the genius inventor of this pouch, this modern day Franklin, this reincarnation of Divinci, this rebirth of Edison, I’m just saying Pennsylvania has a lot of garbage that farts in the face of “shall not be infringed”.

    • Edeco

      Yea, PA is nuts… so, wonder if it would help if he added a zipper with hasp/lock like a retail cash bag?

    • noob

      what if you tape the gun to the outside of the car?

      • Suppressed

        I would really like someone other than myself to try it in order to bring attention to the ridiculousness of the law, but I’d wager that you’d still be charged for concealed carry if you weren’t headed straight to/from the range/FFL/hunting. And in my neck of the woods, I’m pretty sure these boys would also charge you with something like manufacturing and possession of mobile artillery for taping a firearm to a motorized vehicle. (lol, but no lol because of the things happening here lately)

        • Cymond

          Can you point me towards somewhere I can read about the things happening here lately? I’m in PA nowadays.

          • Suppressed

            What part are you in? I’m over on the west in Mercer and Lawrence Counties.

            As far as webpages to point you towards, I don’t really have anything specific. I just know the stuff I see, experience, or get first-hand from reliable sources. One thing that’s going to become really big that you should be aware of is DUID. They’re giving DUI’s for drugs you are actually prescribed yourself, taken properly. Apparently 70% of us fall into this category and its easy convictions/money for the state.

          • Cymond

            I’m way out east, by Valley Forge. Thanks for the heads up.

    • So have you determined this empirically, or…

      • Suppressed

        Oh heck no, I live literally 2 miles from the OH border and consequently, one often ends up in OH via changed plans, cheaper prices on some goods/services, construction routing, or even a simple missed/wrong turn. I got pulled over there in 2014 and was charged with felony concealment of a firearm. They arrested me, impounded my company car, fingerprinted me, took my DNA, and lied/deceived and created unwritten rules to keep said co. car impounded until they underhandedly ensured that my employer was aware of the incident. In addition to bond, I spent 3 stacks on a lawyer that only got it reduced to a M3 – Improper Handling of a Firearm in a Vehicle. I had a PA permit, but it might as well have been Charmin because they just wiped with it. I had no record, and the only charges were for the gun. Because they wouldn’t release the car without notifying my employer, it racked up 1-month of impound fees equaling $1,100. When I finally gave in to their scheme to notify my employer, they were aware I was charged with GUNSxFELONY, so I lost my job 3 days after dropping the $1,100 impound fee. And ironically, shortly afterward OH decided to accept PA permits, so this felony crime I committed isn’t even considered a crime anymore. However, I now have a gun charge on my record in a traditionally blue state. Let’s just say life has been rough ever since and my views on several things have become more personal.

        • Juggernaut

          Sorry to hear that- cops are real a**holes any more

        • Edeco

          I’m dissapointed. I was never a fan of the popo there, but I’d’ve given the area as a whole credit for more chill, I mean, it’s not New Jersey. Would have hoped after the innitial arrest and especially after manifestation of a lawyer it would turn into a fine.

  • MrBrassporkchop

    How about a vest made out of Glocks! They never break so you’ll be impervious to everything! And they’re like right there if you need to use one. And when you run out of ammo you just pull off another one!

    • gunsandrockets

      Behold! The Glock-Lego! Make a vest with them. Make a car with them. Make a house with them. Bwahahahahhah!

      Not to be confused with the Lego-Glock.

    • noob

      perfect if they ever make a CA fixed magazine pistol law. the whole gun is the reload.

      • What are the laws like in Candylandifornia about gettin’ your Bluebeard on and just crrying a brace of flintlocks a dozen or so at a time?

        • iksnilol

          What about a brace of hi-points? Can use it as a flail, has a decent ammo cap and is cheap.

          • It’s true, Hi-Points are on CaliNoFunia’s “safe pistols” roster, unlike that nightmare of hazardous industrial malfeasance, the “Glock 43”.

    • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

      Why has nobody made a vest out of Glocks? It would stop a nuke.

  • Houston Moore

    What on earth is newsworthy about something as derpy as this?

  • .45

    Don’t know how serious this really is, but I would recommend he stuff some handkerchiefs or something in there to keep the pistol in one position, with the butt angled up. That or make one that actually fits the pistol, instead of just a bag.

    • noob

      or an adjustable velcro loop at a 45 degree angle. You adjust it to hold the pistol by wrapping loosely over the triggerguard and slide. it forms a tunnel that stops the pistol from sliding down or flipping upside down.

  • MadMonkey

    Hill People Gear makes a much better looking (and relatively inexpensive) recon bag for this, and it’s not a giant pile of derp.

    • RealitiCzech

      Right. Looks better (isn’t translucent), carries other gear, carries well. A great bicycling bag.

      Yep you beat me to it. And I usually run with this on too. More than a few people have asked me where I have gotten this.

      • noob

        does it have a thing where you can fold it out and internal straps hold it out flat so you can use it as a little map table?

        • some other joe

          Their full size Kit Bag isn’t rigged that way but that wouldn’t be hard to rig with the way they build it.

        • Rock or Something

          The one I have doesn’t have it, but it might be on other models or was added recently. I couldn’t say for certain.

      • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

        I was also going to say the same. They are great Americans that make great stuff.

    • noob

      neat! it’s for when you want to go a little plate carrier, but not full plate carrier.

    • billyoblivion

      This.

      I’ve got one. Used it for backpacking in the Rockies (with a ~60 pound pack) and it kept things like the binos, camera, and snacks (peanut butter and protein bars) handy. Oh, and the Glock 19 loaded with Buffalo Bore, just in case the bear got tired of chasing marmots and decided it wanted us for a snack.

  • Badwolf

    “…curious how slow this would be to draw out of when concealed.”

    There’s a tab on the upper right hand side. I’m just guessing you pull that down to open the pouch. I’ve seen a few gun bags that work the same way.

  • Broz

    My first thought…great idea for stowing your pistol while in a public restroom…

  • Do they not hand out (more-or-less) free cloth nail carrying pouches at his local HoDep or Lowe’s?

  • John

    Oh please, I’ve been doing this for years. I just keep my Ruger GP100 with the 6 inch barrel shoved behind behind junior while carrying him in the baby bjorn! NO ONE expects an infant to be packin’!!!!

    And, in the event of an “event”, I have a set of “baby Peltors” that slip over his head at the same time I draw the cannon out from behind his little tushy!

  • jerry young

    When not in use as a holster does it double as a beer pouch? fill it with your favorite beer add a straw and the pizza pouch and you’re good to go! this is that dumb they make chest rigs that are easier to access and look way better.

  • Simcha M.

    A solution for a non-existent problem…

  • Nathan Means

    I always applaud making something at home…. But I feel like a shiulder holster would do the same deal. Or at least make it out of something other than plastic.

  • Tassiebush

    I’m curious as to why you are projecting your homophobic self loathing submission fantasies onto others. You’re the one making the effort to think up and post this stuff.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      I wonder about this place sometimes. I’ve had comments scrubbed for using the f word but it seems like racist, homophobic, xenophobic hate speech is perfectly acceptable.
      I’m certainly not going to tell people about this site and have them read crap like that and associate me with it.

      • mcjagermech

        i wonder why he isn’t banned

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          I’ve wondered that myself. Gun owners have to deal with being stereotyped as ignorant rednecks enough as it is. I’m not condoning censorship but there has to be a line.

        • Juggernaut

          you mean TheNotIUD, right?

      • Tassiebush

        Yeah it’s a weird and hateful bit of cr@p they’ve written and it is odd to see what gets through Vs the pure class stuff I’ve had not make it up. Makes me reflect more carefully on how my comments might sometimes impact people.

      • KestrelBike

        TFB should make me a moderator. I’d have wiped that post.

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          I don’t care personally. I’ve blocked him so I didn’t even see what he posted. I assume it’s more infantile garbage.
          I’d think the people who run it would care more about what goes up.

        • carlcasino

          Make me a Moderator! I’m biased, opinionated and can be easily bribed! Any other qualifications?

    When will this come to market………the pizza pouch that is?

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    There’s just no value to the comments
    It’s not funny or original or interesting it’s the verbal equivalent of dog sh-t on my shoe.

  • Cory C

    Man, the hell is this guy’s deal?

  • KestrelBike

    Perhaps the one serious post addressing the pistol pouch:

    #1 I’m much, much more likely to be involved in an auto accident (hopefully not my fault) than a shooting incident, and if it’s bad enough that the airbag deploys, I don’t need my sternum/ribs being punched by a gun shaped hunk of hard plastic/steel.

    #2 perhaps just as if not more likely than an accident is getting pulled over for speeding or my taillight being out, it’s one less thing I want to volunteer*/explain to the unknown-entity police officer that yes, I have a gun in the vehicle, no it’s not in the traditional dash/console/my-3o’clock but right at my chest staring you in the face.

    * I subscribe to the belief that any cop that pulls me over will pull my info up on the system first and see that I have a CCL- immediately volunteering that info and telling the cop if and where I’m carrying may cost a bit of freedom-dignity to some, but may pay dividends in building trust and maybe even getting just a warning (and I can then put that ticket money into the gun industry).

  • Tassiebush

    Oooh I wonder if there’s a deep fryer version?

  • ChiptheBarber

    I usually just hang a WalMart bag from the shift lever. You can keep your carry piece AND a ham sandwich in there.
