Assuming the perp is dead and I felt safe putting my gun away, I can't imagine the police getting there before I had a chance to transfer my gun to my other hand, fish the holster out of my pocket, insert the gun into it, and put it back in my pocket.
I certainly can!
You've just done something about the guys who were about to rob you at gunpoint. They're on the floor, legs crossed, hands finger-laced atop their heads.
But you're not completely sure that they'll stay that way, if you take your attention away from them.
And now, the cops, who someone else called for, are arriving. You need to reholster before they see your pistol and think that you may be a bad guy.
But you mustn't take your attention away from the BGs on the floor.
I suggest that you do indeed need to be able to holster your pistol with only one hand, and without "looking it in."
And even if you think otherwise, I further suggest that it's a very useful skill to have, even if you never use it.
You can call me naive but, in that scenario, I'd more likely keep my gun aimed in the BGs general direction until the police arrived and assume they wouldn't just open fire on a 74 year old white guy without giving him the opportunity to drop the gun.
Why are you holding people at gunpoint?? Back away put distance between you and them. Your jacked up on adrenaline and your playing cop?? Look out that guy is making a run for it!!! BANG BANG!! oh boy you just shoot him twice in the back.
If you reholster before LE gets there, then one of the other 100 BGs you didn't see might shoot you, or LE might shoot you anyhow for not following the 25 different commands all yelled at you at the same time. So just like getting sued by the BG's family, plan on LE shooting first, asking question later.

I have found the Admin Rule for the Puerto Rico Act 168-2019 which is their new gun law. I have been working on it but with the Rules being a Scanned copy making all the pages images you can’t highlight it and paste it into a translator. You have to type it all in. So it takes time. Yes they...
We seem to have been over run lately with the usual gun forum chest thumping from the usual suspects. That got me wondering how many forum members (and perhaps lurkers) would be willing to discuss minimalist carry?
I am purposely not going to define what minimalist carry is, as I’m sure it will...
I deliver takeout for an online delivery service. I'm in Texas.
It appears they have a policy that prohibits delivery partners (independent contractors) from carrying while using their app, under penalty of deactivation.
Is there any risk to a driver's LTC, or legal penalties, etc. if the...
