    leo weapon retention

    I thought LEO's had really good holsters for weapon retention.

    Cop wipes out an a Segway and it LOOKS like his service pistol comes flying out.

    What a dope. If that was MSF basic rider course, he would have failed.

    Officer's right-handed, I'm pretty sure the object is off the left side of his belt so I'm guessing it's his radio.

    Never know if he is right-handed but....it does appear he has his firearm on his right hip and the object that fell out was a radio or some other devide. Didn't look like a weapon to me.

    well,,,

    at the beginning of the vid, you can see a radio on his left hip,
    just forward of that radio, you can see a gun in a cross draw holster.
    when he falls and flips over, you can see the ell shape of the gun as it spins and falls.
    he needs better retention!
    it was his GUN!!!

    Not sure how anyone could make any kind of conclusion based off a grainy 5-second clip.

    I have yet to seen an officer on duty use a cross draw holster. Strong side firearm holster and cross-draw tazer holsters. If I were a betting man I'd bet it wasn't a firearm. However, I am not and this is super grainy.

    Not his gun...



    HOJ is correct. It is either his tazer or radio falling off his belt. That officer clearly shoots right handed. His duty weapon is clearly on his right side and the tazer is on the left in a cross draw holster.(which should be retention type holster as well) The radio right next to the tazer would not have much if any in the way of retention as they are normally in just a loop type carrier. I believe that it was his radio that fell out.

    BTW...it's still a funny video.

    No it wasn't. It was a radio.

    I watched this several times, screen enlarged, in slow mo, and using a magnifying glass.

    The officer is carrying a pistol in a holster on his right hip. It is not set up as cross draw.
    At the very end when he sits up his pistol is still in the holster on his right hip.

    @ :03 on the video his radio clearly slides out of it's holder.


    Radio holsters aren't set up like pistol holsters. Some of them don't even have a retention strap.

    That also has 50% more wheels than any segway I've seen.
