Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. I’m not sure open carry was the intention, but carrying in a OWB hip holster wearing those clothes, and that is the result. IMHO, she’s going to drop the whole thing on the ground, and that’s no good for anyone that carries, open or concealed.

    Besides that, if she had to draw for defense, the holster
    will go with the gun, making it useless and possibly taken
    away.

  2. In looking at that image in small, I thought it was a shit ass belt failure to begin with. Then in large she’s got a firearm clipped to her yoga pants and panties. I’m more concerned for the entire package, gun, holster, pants and panties hitting the ground.

    On top of that, the retention looks really bad to me. I’m not real good at that stuff but.

    And as the CAPT. said, if she goes to draw it, it is not in a consistent place and the entire holster is highly likely to come with the draw.

    I’m having fits with holsters and have yet to be totally satisfied with any. Though the Alien Gear is currently my go to.

    1. For commercial, off the shelf holsters, look at Comp-Tac’s MTAC holster. Or you can try a custom leather one. I have a drawer full of holsters for that very reason.

      1. Many of us, I think, have the old box-o-holsters. I need to suggest the local range club have a holster exchange table at their annual gun show.

        I’m thinking of trying a shoulder holster one of these days, myself.

    1. Good points, very few people have this time and money for training beyond their state’s mandatory chl class ( if there is one). This still shows a need for better training at that level since the Oregon CHL class I attended included a unit on holsters and belts. Also even without further training there is some basic self education and research that would have prevented this fiasco.
      I also fervently hope someone on the scene said “Ma’am you really need to carry your pistol on a belt or other support”.
