    I can only guess what was meant was a horizontal holster in which case I still see no issue as long as the booger hook stays off the trigger.

    LOL. Ok...ok... Is this what you want to be doing when Jesus comes back around? Picking on poor Blinko? :)

    For that matter FBI cant holsters sweep others as well but I hear of no one proposing the same argument toward that.



    Some folks debate and concern themselves about drowning from rain too, as they get run over whilst attempting to cross roads.

    Post Sorry but, that particular "click" was your fault

    "and when the gun started to fall I grabbed it and heard a 'click'.

    Never grab or attempt to catch a gun that is about to fall.

    Let it fall.

    One comment, I would suggest is that if you carry in a horizontal shoulder holster, keep it concealed.

    I saw a guy in a restaurant once openly carrying in a Miami Classic shoulder holster. People sitting behind him were not amused.

    We had a thing in Iraq where the higher ups were telling us for a while that we could not carry in horizontal shoulder holsters because it flagged everyone behind you. It made no sense and got repealed fairly quickly.

    They never said anything about thigh rigs, which most of us had, and "flagged" everyone in front of you when you sat down, squatted, etc.

    I wear a horizontal shoulder holster 99% of the time, and I've never worried about it. Although I have had people tell me they were more dangerous. I generally don't pay attention because I've never touched my trigger while it was in the holster.
