WhatSort Of Gun Holster Should I Go For?
In thistype of holster, the pistol is placed on the left side covered with the jacket.It is another good method for women, but it needs a long movement, so that ourhand reaches the hilt. It is a delator movement and forces us to keep the armglued to the abdomen to draw, with the danger of the attacker to immobilize ifwe try at a short distance. Of course, once we reach the weapon, we must makeanother wide arc to adopt the firing position.
Generally,it is worn inside the pants, and can be in any of the positions we have studiedso far. This type of cover offers better conditions of concealment, as thebarrel does not protrude outside of the trousers, and you can wear jackets orshorter shirts which is very common to see the arms appear under the shirt orjacket when sitting and being pressed against the body by the belt, the lump isless evident.
On theother hand, we must use longer belts and even a trousers of a greater size.Women and obese people may feel discomfort by pressing the butt against theribs or abdomen. It is also important that the holster is rigid to be able tosheath without ‘crushing’ the mouth of it. The holster is only 50% of thesystem while the other 50% is the belt. To ensure that the weapon will not moveor you will be uncomfortable, you should use a belt that fits with sleeve'seyelets; some models have adjustable eyelets for different belt widths. This ismore important that the greater the weight of the weapon, and also applies toother accessories, such as charger covers, flashlights, sprays, etc.
The ankleholster is not a good place to carry the primary weapon but can be good for theback-up weapon. In certain cases, such as people who are sitting or driving alot may be the most accessible way. The US policemen who serve on airlinesoften carry the primary weapon this way. Some people cannot tolerate the ankle holster for the reason that the sheath irritatesthe nerves of the leg in addition to needing large leggings.
It is agood way to warn that we carry a gun. Any professional will assume that a goodsized bundle contains a weapon until it does not prove otherwise. Anotherdrawback is that you need 2 hands to draw. If you need the weapon when you aredoing something with the other hand, for example, fighting an attacker, youwill compromise the draw.
Thistype of inner holster was invented by Dave Workman, in which a fold of the sameholster serves to remit the shirt, leaving the weapon totally hidden. It is agood choice for low risk situations where it is more important to go unnoticedthan to have the weapon ‘by hand’.
