Even then, the though of an irregular shaped object being forced 
into my body as I land on the ground keeps me from waering a 
pack. The only time I thought otherwise was with a cop I used to 
ride with, he always carried a weapon, probably safer attached 
to him than in his tank bag. Even then, he kept it in a fairly 
small fanny pack, just large enough for his wallet, keys, clip 
and 9mm glock.
