Funny the Russian Military has something for this style of carry for the Mak since like the 70's. It was much simpler more secure, and way faster. Slide the pistol in the top, snap the top strap, then to draw just shove the gun down and through the holster. It racks one in the chamber, and is a fast with practice drawing.

I know not what this "overkill" means.

It is not for me but I think it is a good idea for those who feel they need something like this. I will give the man some credit, he was fast. I was not expecting him to be as fast as he was. I also felt that unloading the rounds straight out of the holster was unique but I don't think it would be a great idea.
That holster has to stand off the body like that, to allow you to obtain a grip, and rack the slide. If it were made to ride closer to the body, there wouldn't be room for your thumb behind the pistol, while racking in the first round. It also occurs to me that you're effectively riding the slide home, while racking in that first round.

Definately not for me, but I do love the ideas and concepts that get tossed around here.
Edit: I just re-read the original link and see that this holster only works for specific models. The more I study this holster, the more it scares me. This system seems like it greatly increases the likelyhood of jamming the first round.

the Israelis use of the side arm is secondary to their always present rifle. if needed they will, much like our SWAT teams, draw in advance of their action. I've been to Israel, i have hands on exposure to their training. as to "they would love this thing"---they would examine it, learning comes from having an open mind--but their doctrine has no room for it...at all.
like most rube goldberg contraptions--they look nice when they are operating, but in the end they have accomplished little, if anything of value.

I think that is stupid I really don't see no different in my holster I can carry my gun chamber or not with my holster I don't see what the different are in the holsters using a auto.
By carrying empty you automatically lose the important option of having the "+1 capacity".
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Interesting concept and might be the wave of the future but at this time it's too pricey for me. If it catches on and they get some competition prices should come down.
