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.
fortiter in re, suaviter in modo (resolutely in action, gently in manner).
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 It made no sense and got repealed fairly quickly.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.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
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.
when I wear my shoulder holster, those behind me don't have a clue..and thats all that matters to me
