    More noticeable: hip holster vs drop holster

    I've been OCing for about 5 years steady and sporadically before that, but always in a hip or shoulder holster.

    Last week I threw my back out loading a car onto a flatbed and I decided to use a drop holster that I normally reserve for hunting to alleviate the stress on my back. It seems to me that if people are almost completely oblivious to a holstered firearm on the hip, they are even more oblivious to a holstered firearm in a leg holster. I usually get curious looks from several people any time I go to WalMart, but since Saturday I've had only one person (that I noticed) actually do a double take.

    Does anyone else use any form of leg holster? What kinds of reactions do (or don't) you get?

    On your dropdown holster, is the lower end tied to your leg to hold it steady?



    I have a 4" revolver that I have both a leather and nylon holsters that I change with the weather. As OC is impossible off your own property here in Illinois, I don't have much interaction with anybody. I modded both holsters so they could be lashed around my thigh, keeping the holster from following the gun when I pull up on it.



    In addition to back surgery in the early '70s, I have arthritis slowing me down. Having the holster lower on my side means I have to "crimp" my shoulder and elbow that much less and clears the holster faster.



    I have this one

    I would like to get another drop holster, but I spent all my money on a house.
