The hawkeyed newshounds at MSNBC caught this travesty at a recent town hall protest in Portsmouth, NH:
I know, I’m thinking it too: Why on earth was that guy wearing his sidearm in a drop-leg holster? I didn’t see an all over plate carrier on him? And it was adjusted way too low. Putting your gun that low makes it harder to reach than it should be. The top leg strap should be snug on your crotch.
Look, if you’re not wearing a plate, put the gun on your belt. It’s easier to get to and retain.
I didn’t get a good look at the rig, but it had the air of gun show special about it. If you must have a drop-leg holster, look into a Safariland 6004. The SLS hood is a much better retention system than a simple strap. They even have models that will accommodate a sidearm with a mounted flashlight.
That was the important issue, but apparently the pansies at MSNBC were distracted by the fact that he was there at all. Hey you fucking j-school commies, it’s New Hampshire! You should have been surprised if he didn’t have a gun!
MSNBC is staffed by a bunch of cockless, unAmerican cowards who are as ignorant about personal weaponry as Tom Cruise is about vagina.
