    For both of the guns I OC as primary I have police drop holsters.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Question

    Is a "police drop" holster similar to a "tactical" or "leg drop thigh rig"? Just trying to get my terminology correct

    This is an example of a police drop.

    I have a nice winter jacket for work that has a strap that buckles under the holster so that your jacket does not get caught over the gun. I bet they make something like that without all the badges and stuff on it.

    I tend to just carry in my high riding HiNoon holster or my shoulder holster. The shoulder rig is great when driving but people tend to get freaked when I take off my coat and that big hole is pointing out from under my arm,,,hehehehehe

    yeah, I get that from the thigh rig when sitting down.

    Looks like about half of us are fair weather friends.

    I decided not to change anything at all for winter and keep the gun where it always is since finding the gun under stress is more important than worrying about changing things just to OC.

    So I bought a waist length lined jacket (Carhart so it is warm) that fits behind the holster/gun carried on my belt on my hip where I always carry it. That allows me to stay warm and OC with my gun in the same place it always is.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    nope its a holster that may sit a little lower and is extended out away from the body a little so a jacket can sit behind the gun witout going over it.

    my winter set up is a safariland 6377 with a 2 inch drop adjuster. it sets the grip of my weapon even with where my hand naturally rests. its a very stable system.

    Yeah, like Bikenut I just tuck my jacket behind the holster on my belt. Keep it simple, stupid.

    I use the same holster year round, I just start wearing long sleeves instead of short sleeves, no coat unless it necessary.

    Same here. I end up CCing most of the time during jacket weather unless I'm somewhere long enough for the jacket to come off.
