    The weapon was a Sig P229R-DAK chambered in .40 S&W. The holster was probably a safariland 6000. The purpose of the drop holster is not to look or be tacti-cool. Regular duty holsters on the belt ride at the botton of the PFD(lifejacket) so its just a comfort/accesability issue.-Jay

    That is very true. Coolness has nothing to do with it.

    We have been issued the Safariland 6000-something holster with our duty M-9s. You're right, it has nothing to do with looks. It's all about ease of draw and accessibility. Most will find it hard to draw from a seated-in-the-car position whereas it's not that hard to draw from a drop leg holster. That said, in the course of my duties as an AF SP, I've never had to draw my pistol unless it was for turn-in or at the range. I prefer the dropleg setup until it comes time to give chase to a suspect. Then, they suck.

    This is exactly what we are issued, except for a M-9 Beretta of course.

    I've said this on DC several times before.

    When you have your firearm holstered muzzle down at the waist...do you ever walk around on the second floor of your house?

    If you do then your muzzle could be pointed right at the tops of the heads of the people walking around on the first floor below you.

    Since most average construction homes will not even come close to stopping a bullet do you feel that you are NOT endangering the lives of the people on the floor below you just because you can't actually see them?

    If your properly functioning firearm is properly holstered don't fidget with it - leave it alone - and don't be concerned about it.

    The muzzle rule is not applicable to properly holstered firearms.

    If your holstered firearm was sitting on the coffee table in front of you - would you never walk in front of it because you were afraid it was going to shoot you all by itself?

    Of course you would walk in front of it. It's no less safe just because it's attached to your body.
    Very well said.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.
