It is a widely held belief that using the same gun in the same holster on a regular or permanent basis helps with muscle memory, that the action of drawing and operating the handgun becomes virtually automatic.
I agree, but I am also of the opinion that it pays to be able to carry a variety of weapons in different holsters as there are circumstances that can dictate the need to being adaptive.
- Your primary weapon might be too large for your cover clothing on any particular day.
- Your primary weapon might be in for repair.
- Your holster choice might be compromised due to clothing or conditions.
I carry a variety of guns in different holsters, I also alternate between a few different folding knives that don't all open the same way.
I don't feel that I suffer from lag or hesitation.
I dry fire - I practice my draw - I make every effort to be fully cognizant of the weapon I am with, the idiosyncrasies of it and how best it handles.
Anyone else a multi-carry weapon person?
How do you feel about it?
