I am not opposed to the use of thigh-rigs. I have never used one because I don't find them comfortable. I believe there is a negative perception that thigh-rigs look too militant for civilian use. There is the thought that those who use thigh-rigs are wanna-be cops. I do not subscribe to either one of these beliefs. I will say that if you decide to carry on your thigh, the draw is completely different and would require a substantial amount of practice.
