Because I'm not allowed to have a gun in the People's Republic of New York City. However, I'm not sure there is a good way to mount one to your frame. You certainly wouldn't want to advertise the fact that you have one (or maybe you do...) Maybe a handlebar bag with a velcro closure would be your best bet. I used to do that on long touring rides. I've also used a fanny pack holster that would work just fine if you don't mind a waist band. That would keep the gun on you anyway. (i.e. if someone wanted to attack you, the easiest way would be to throw something through your front spokes, in which case, a frame mounted handgun would probably be somewhere on the ground behind you!)

You could probably create a frame that *is* a gun. The top tube could be the barrel. Need to clear the steer tube, but there's gotta be a way. Very discreet, then.

Sometimes when I ride at night I would really enjoy this mallet based percussion instrument mounted to my bars.

Wouldn't be too useful in a confrontation, I suppose.
LMAO. Great post.................nmDave Hickey

If you need to be packing I think the best solution would be a holster rather then fixing it to your frame somehow.

Just type into Google "Glock (model name) holster" and you should come up with a ton of results. There are different types of holsters, I think the best bet for comfort and concealability would be a shoulder sling...

However if you do need a gun while riding I think you need to reaccess where you're riding rather then going rambo on this.

Everyone needs to invest a little time reading the Spike Bike series:

Here's a little excerpt.

"... I'm Spike Bike. I hate cars.

Taking out a tractor-trailer rig isn't easy. You might be able to get a grenade into the cab, but if it bounces back at you, you're finished. You can sometimes shoot out all the tires on one side of the tractor and the truck will jackknife, but it takes at least half a mag, and half the time you won't get all the tires. I had to face the fact that a MAC-10 submachinegun and a few grenades just weren't going to do the job against these monstrosities. ..."

if I were inclined to carry a firearm I'd get a permit and a shoulder holster. surely no one will mess with you after that?

I was emailed this by a friend, so I'm new here. I am not new to guns. I definitely would want to carry my gun concealed (i have a CCW permit). If people see the gun, they act wierd. Some grow more timid and others grow more hostile, as if to prove their manhood. If you will be in places where people arent a factor, you can buy a kydex (a hard polymer plastic) holster and drill the holes to mount it to the frame. I really don't think this is a good idea. I would buy a fanny pack from Uncle Mike's and wear it or mount it to the handlebars. A shoulder holster will work if you are in street clothes, but that doesn't seem to fit with the personality of this website (probably an overgeneralization, sorry).
