What is YOUR preference for "Retention Level" of your EDC holster(s) and why?
1. Passive/Friction only....NO buttons, snaps, straps, mechanical locks etc.
2. Thumb break/snap/strap...in addition to friction
3. Mechanical lock/constraint...in addition to friction
MY EDC holsters are ALL passive/friction only...NO button, snaps, straps, mechanical locks, etc. My feelings are the less I have to deal with while presenting my weapon, the smoother and more economical my draw stroke will be. I don't do a lot of running, standing on my head, gymnastics, etc to worry about the need of a strap...I just plain don't like thumb breaks or snaps...and I definitely do not like any type of trigger lock/mechanical device i.e. Serpa holsters...JMO
How say the rest of the community? Just curious...
