Yes, that's a FLOATING M2.

Watch your scalp on the butterfly.

I figured I would revisit this topic and share what I have tried, and now use. I've tried a few pouches that mount to the bike but didn't like the idea of getting separated from my bike and possibly gun. Put the gun in the back pocket of Camel Back but that required unsnapping and swinging the pack around, too time consuming. I tried the Belly Band and liked it, but didn't like the rash it caused me so that out but the idea is still used. I bought a new larger Camel Back for more water and storage, bought some strong nylon material and padding and a sewing machine ( I know ) Made me a lower belly band that sit mid stomach, attatched to Camel Back and secures in the front via Velcro, on the right side (I'm right handed) is the pouch with gun, left side 2 more mags. This new band also helped fully secure the CB from any flopping around when full of water. Also added a 8 inch fixed blade combat knife and a Streamlight flash light for night encounters. I ride through the same hood I work to get home, avoiding the highways and using the most technical and fun route. I now feel pretty safe knowing I can get to my gun with right hand and knife with left hand. Hope this helps

I hardly think that's fitting after seeing some of the shit y'all fawkers buy. After years of training I guess it really gets drilled into your head to prepare for the worse and have multiple backup plans. Plus, that's nothing compared to what I carry on duty everyday. Anyways, just thought it would be helpful to some

Bianchi

I use this....http://www.bianchi-intl.com/product/...?TxtModelID=84
It attaches to the shoulder strap of my camel back and essentually creates a cross draw location a little lower that a standard shoulder holster. Its exposed but I don't worry about it as I'm ussually in the woods on my mountain bike.
Best part is I use the same holster for riding and off duty carry.

Oh yah....If anyone has had issues finding a good holster for Walther PPS. The Sig version of this holster works perfectly with minor modifications to the plastic around the trigger guard.
