For those of you who carry while riding, what style holster have you found works the best?

I sometimes carry groceries.
It works best to tie 2 groceries bags together at the middle and hang it over the seat or tank.
carrying it from the handlebars is a bad idea because of the swinging while braking and accelerating

I have a shoulder holster for when I ride. I then go to an IWB holster when I get off the bike, since the jacket comes off at that point. The shoulder holster is attached to my jacket. Works pretty well, doesn't get in my way at all.

Can I make an honest suggestion before this thread loses it's shat and gets locked? Try searching a few Harley forums. I know it's a stereotype, but a LOT of HD riders carry. An they're more than happy to tell you about what holsters do or don't work well on a bike. Concealed carry threads on HD forums seldom turn into a debate about whether or not you should carry. Those are some of the few threads that stay on topic.

Svr is not known for tolerating the testosterone fueled mess that a concealed carry thread generally becomes.

BTC, between the cheeks?

Tank bag, shoulder holster or inside jacket pocket work best but on body carry would hurt in case of a getoff. I dont usually take mine on the bike.

I use a velcro backed holster out of an Eagle briefcase I purchased years ago. It was the "in" thing when I just started my current job ;D. I attached some fuzzy material inside the pockets of my jacket/Roadcrafter and carry it that way.

Vanson has a gun pocket option for their jackets

If you had a faired SV, you could probably store it in the upper fairing. Maybe drill a hole to line up the barrel, and have a solenoid that can depress the trigger! Link it to the flash-to-pass button.
Drive-bys in the SV, aww yea gurl.

The only problem with all the fanny/chest/etc carry packs I have seen is that every cop and criminal can immediately identify it as a pack for carrying your weapon. They're more advertisement than concealment.

Just sayin'. ;D
I've never had anyone "out" me wearing that pack. Fanny packs might be a giveaway, but nobody guesses this one, not even cops.

When I wear it over a black jacket, it blends in very well. I also wear the holster lower than this dude has his.

We have that 5.11 Select Carry pack as a diaper bag (no joke). My wife loves it because she can tote all the baby crap for our twin 19mo old boys, all her gear + her CCW. She lovingly refers to it as her Tactical Diaper Bag. It is pretty comfortable if a bit warm on hotter days, but works great on the bike (no, we don't bring the boys on the bike ;))
