leg holsters... legalfor CAUOC or not? i think that wearing one is gonna make me look like im trying to be "tacticool" or maybe a littledorky, but it seems like it might be safer around rookie cops that might pull the trigger if i can avoid having my hand near my gun while reaching for my wallet, or cigarettes or what ever.
thoughts on the leg holster? facts on the vest?
Exposed Leg/thigh holsters;i.e. not a concealed ankle rig - they are not statutorily exempt like a belt/waist holster is. I don't even think Theseus' DA would try to prosecute a thigh rig as 'concealed'.
