    DAMNIT! This is SGT Jensen, logged in as packingmama. oops!

    Since everybody will most likely tell you it is too "tacticool" to wear a thigh rig, let me be the first (and possibly only) to say go for it. Here is a pic of mine. As far as legality in Arizona??? Better research that one.

    As long as it's in some kind of holster you're fine.

    ARS 13-3102 (F):
    ...carried in a belt holster which holster is wholly or partially visible, or carried in a scabbard or case designed for carrying weapons which scabbard or case is wholly or partially visible or carried in luggage...
    I'm pretty sure you can't carry as a minor, though.

    As long as the holster is totally visible, It's cool to carry in a tactical rig such as that. Just be 18 when you do it. You might catch some flak for it looking too swat team but they will get over it.

    Just pimp it out and get rid of the tactical part of "tacticool". Neon colors and chrome buckles. Of course it would help if you looked like Laura Croft.

    I've been wearing the same Blackhawk thigh rig as shown in SGT Jensen's pic. I have only had one comment on it, and that was by a guy who didn't know a thigh holster was legal and repeatedly stated he was going to be carrying as soon as he turned 21. As for the "tacticool" look, I don't really care if anyone thinks that, it is the only good way I have to get it below my coat.

    Generally as long as the holster is visible it is considered open carry so you should be fine. Below is the actual wording which technically does specify "belt holster" but I would argue that your holster is still attached to your belt - it just hangs down a bit lower than usual & is also tied to your leg to keep it secure - my guess is you'd be fine:

    http://www.azleg.state.az.us/ars/13/03102.htm

    . . .

    F.
