Rick, my Keltec is never my primary, as you suggest it's just far too slow to get into action. That's why I wrote something about not needing all that ammo to get to my Keltec or some such. I could have been more explicit, sorry.

I do train with the Fatboy. It's a bit slower than on body carry in some situations, and faster in others. Maine has a very low crime rate, and where I live the biggest "crime" are violations of the game laws and B&E. So just with a bit of applied thought I can limit any exposure to potential crime to times when I'm shopping and such. At those times my hand is almost on my handgun because my pack is in the kiddy seat and my hands are on the push bar. If I do happen to see something developing I can have my hand on my 9c ready to draw and no one is the wiser, all they see is my hand inside the pack. I can do the same if I happen to be walking along with the pack slung near front right hip. It can be open with my hand on the gun and no one would know because the gun is hidden. But again, I don't need to put myself into those situations (walking in dangerous areas) so I don't. If I lived where some of you gents lived I might reconsider my carry options and go back to a shoulder holster or belt carry. BTW, I do carry OWB (4-5 o'clock position) when I carry the p938.

So far I've used my CCW handguns only for dispatching 2 animals on the road. One was a car struck deer (.357 mag), and the other was an obviously very ill raccoon (.380 auto). There could have been a 3rd (actually the first chronologically), I saw an obviously very ill fox, and instead of killing it I called the game warden. He was NOT very happy. Told me next time to just kill it and call later. He had to tromp through the woods trying to find it and didn't relish the idea. That first was over 30 years ago.
