Thanks in advance for watching!
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
As a civilian, Im not sure what I would really do with a drop leg holster. Ive never worn one, and I probably never will. From what Ive seen, they are used by military, special law enforcement agencies, and tactical Tim wanna-bes on Youtube.
I have a drop leg holster, and love it. Its right up there with a shoulder holster as the holster that gets the least use, but I do love that thing. It puts the pistol at a much more natural hand position, moves with your leg, etc.
Of course, it has some of the drawbacks that you described. Me, I got mine mostly for use ATV riding. Its perfect for that.
As re being disarmed with a drop leg holster.... I dont really see it happening. Mine has level 3 retention on it, and I think most others would as well. The biggest real world danger that I can see is under stress forgetting the retention.
Well done video. Thanks for sharing.
Drop leg holsters are useful if you hike or do other activities with a pack or with cold weather gear. I use a drop leg holster in the winter depending where I am and what I am doing. I would not wear one into town. That smacks of Mall Ninja.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
And Mall Ninjas, don't forget the Mall Ninjas.
I like all kinds of foreign guns.

I don't always use missiles, but when I do it's the Minuteman III LGM-30G
Agree with consensus that it is useful for police/military when wearing body armor. My Agency issues drop holsters when we're overseas; personally I can't stand 'em
I've invested in my own holsters for the M11/Sig229 carried that get the holster out away from my body armor and keep in on my hip. In my avatar you can see the drop holster...that was my first couple of weeks there and my gear hadn't arrived from the states yet!
I can see these being very useful for a private citizen
Hunting , someone that owns a large ranch or property , horseback riding , and for preppers .
I do not own one but would if i had a need

Keep your booger hook off the bang switch until you want to destroy something .
Honestly I've considered getting one for hiking, because the backpack gets in the way of my usual draw. I'm loathe to carry differently than usual though for some reasons you have stated.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
