I think many here agree that off-body carry is not ideal, but sometimes it is necessary (like for a third gun...LOL).
The Wilderness Safepacker is an awesome accessory. It holds your piece, an extra mag, has a velcro'd strap so you can attach it to your belt, your car seat belt, or I use it on my backpack in the back country. Many times when I could open carry if I wanted to, the Safepacker provides the perfect compromise without freaking any sheep out. I did take a razor blade and remove the stitched-on label. I also used to hang a dead set of earbuds on it for decoy, but now, I don't really care much anymore if someone "makes" me. I also have my 9mm briefcase: KT Sub2000 chambered in Glock, G26, three 33 round mags, and two 15 round mags in a handy to-go container....

I've a Galco Hidden Agenda that's pretty nice, but I never utilize it for the same reason.

The only time I regularly practice off-body carry is with my "truck gun". Depending on the vehicle when I am traveling, I often keep a pistol in the console. I haven't had (or taken) the "opportunity" to travel into a carry restricted state where my reciprocity is not recognized.

Is this anything like a 12 gauge in the trunk? That is my off body carry.

For that mode I often use the Dillon Day Planner B...looks just like a day planner and NO ONE pays any attention. Might work for you as well.

I too use the Dillon Plan B, but you must hold on to it with your life. I think it is best suited for vehicle carry on the seat beside you.

I have carried mine in just about every conceivable situation and what I really like is that it draws absolutely NO attention from anyone...you are correct in that it is a great in the car solution, but it works in so many situations so very well!

I suppose it could get attention from folks wondering when the last time was they saw someone actually carrying a day planner lol

Like Charlie W my only off body carry is either in the truck console or between the console and seat in the car.

I carry in the console of my pickup or on the seat by me when traveling. I cycle alone up in the Nat'l Forest and on a lot of fire roads, old country roads, and access roads, so I carry either a Ruger SP101 .357 or a Springfield micro-compact 1911 with extra mags in a Maxpedition belt pouch. No problems, but I have seen bear scat and tracks a couple of times.

I really don't like leaving guns in my vehicle. They are way more vulnerable to theft there then they are in your house. I've never had my house broken into, but I've had my car broken into multiple times.
