    I usually leave it (gun varies on my mood and time of year) in my pack and clip a good knife on my ridgeline. However now I am thinking of how I can store it in the hammock.

    Perhaps we just hit upon the new line of Dutchware. The Dutch ridgeline holster.

    I own guns, but I officially don't have a hiking/hammock gun yet.

    I was looking at either a Bond Arms .45lc Derringer at 20oz, Kahr Arms CW45 .45acp at 21oz or a Ruger LCR .357 at 17oz.

    My only reason for getting one of those would be if I woke up with a Black Bear clawing at my hammock with me in it, and the bear is unphased at me yelling and screaming like a little girl. I need something small and lightweight for hiking, but with a caliber strong enough to stop a black bear at close range.

    I'm also debating if I should just skip the gun idea and go with bear spray.

    Storing the gun, I would keep it in the hammock with me. Not much good if its in your pack out of reach. Maybe sew a pocket in your sleepingbag or overquilt?

    A fine weapon but that's gotta get heavy after a while. I can neither confirm nor deny the presence or non-presence of a weapon on my person but I do have a Glock 27. I'd really like a Colt Commander. I've been wanting a 1911 for a while.

    I carry when traveling the urban woods; not so much in the piney woods. On the rare occasion that I do, I usually bring either a Blackbird or a Switchback. The shelf in the Blackbird makes life easy and the pockets on the Switchback fit my full-size semis just fine.

    No carry here. I stick with blades, in part because most of my hiking/hammocking is with Boy Scouts.
