    I been thinking about picking up a camelbak for when i go hunting as opposed to carrying a water bottle or a canteen but i can't seem to justify the cost :o

    I found the demon for $110-120, which isn't too bad because I was in the market for a new backpack for hiking, etc anyway. The demon has a lower velcro pocket made for concealing a hand gun and a mag, knife or light.

    I'm just curious as to how hard it is to draw out of the pocket. :dunno:

    What are you using this for? Personally, I'd prefer OWB to carrying inside of a backpack.

    Hiking, camping, whatever. If I'm out backpacking I'll just OWB holster it because I know no one is going to be around. But hiking, fishing, camping, geocaching etc where I know I'm there is a chance to run into someone, more specifically someone not gun friendly, I'd rather have it concealed. And it looks to me like this pack has it in a decent place for a draw.

    I always OC pretty much anywhere in the outdoors. If anyone has any problems with it, fuck 'em. :dunno:

    Well...long and the short of it is, I cannot get a definitive answer on whether or not it is legal to carry in New Mexico national forests, the website doesn't say, and people shoot up in them a lot, but I've heard they are prohibited. So basically if I can keep one concealed, effectively, I'll never know the answer because I walked up to a ranger with one hanging off my belt. :o

    It's a little bulkier than I like in a camelbak, but if it's the gun pocket you're looking for, it's pretty much alone in that respect.

    I prefer on body carry, but when hiking, even the best holsters get a workout. I usually toss the M40 in the bigger pocket of my Scorpion.

    Draw isn't the fastest, but I usually have the P3AT somewhere else more accessible.

    I was leaning towards something like that as well, I was just curious if anyone had ever used it, because I want to know what the draw is like.

    I may just go with a smaller camel back and throw it in the pocket in places I may run into someone.

    You can still get just the camel backs for that, and sometimes less.

    I love camel backs when I'm hiking. Beats having to ask your buddy to grab your water bottle every time you want a drink.

    I've worn mine quite a few times.. but I'm a forester, so I don't think I count as true college student :o
