Tom Mix had it easier-- he wore his holster on his belt along with a lot of bullets and that was all there was to it. Walk around on either coast with a gun on your hip and you're going to generate some unwanted notice and a lot of questions. Even in states that have open carry, there are a lot of people who are just outright afraid of guns.
Finding the right holster isn't as simple as you might think. There are a wide range of options
Probably the most common, the trouble here is that if you don't want to wear a sweater or a sport coat this isn't going to be concealed. It's also fairly long so even a normal sweater isn't going to cover this.
I usually opt to go with a sports jacket but you have to make sure you don't keep anything in your right back pocket because when you reach around you're going to reveal that you're packing and incite some panic.
These inside the pants holsters are getting more popular, I don't know. Number one I don't like the idea of a gun down my pants and number two this seems like it's awkward to draw it if you need it-- and that's the last thing you want. Lastly I would assume you have to go out and buy bigger pants and that causes me to be out on this one.
Maybe I'm just not that flexible but this seems like the kind of holster you get if you're hoping to lose a gunfight. "Excuse me, I have an itch..." as you fumble around behind you for your gun doesn't seem like a winning strategy.
The Shoulder Holster is my first choice, but there are a few issues there. First this model which holds the gun straight out concerns me a little because it's kind of like I'm trying to shoot the person behind me. Proper gun handling is to hold your finger above the trigger guard so that shouldn't be a problem but in an emergency I'm not sure I want the added pressure.
Shoulder holsters can also be uncomfortably warm in the Summer, but you can't have everything can you?
I'll keep exploring, meanwhile if YOU have found something that works for you feel free to email me and let me know what it is.
