6.1 …with an unloaded firearm.Some observations from my (and other's) experience:
1. Buy your accessories now (Light, Red Dot, etc) to reduce your holster expense.
2. Clear out a closet to make room for the multitude of holsters you will purchase.
3. Don't even consider an off body carry option. You will not have the extra time to get to it.
4. Once you decide comfortable carry location, don't vary the location and practice often.
5. Keep a loaded gun in a holster as much as possible when handling it.
6. Perfect your draw from that holster until it is second nature.
Agreed. I should have added that. That is why I got a SIRT pistol to practice at home. Getting feedback from the computer, while not 100% authentic goes a long way.6.1 …with an unloaded firearm.
Even folks like us make mistakes. Got a hole in my wall to prove it.
Thanks for the heads up on Azula-I checked out their site and was quite impressed with the selection.I carry outside the waistband 90% of the time...I prefer a leather holster over Kydex etc. for both comfort and concealability...Kydex tends to protrude and make concealment more difficult at times.... I also prefer a slotted holster over the clip on ones...Last few years I have gotten Azula leather holsters exclusively....very good quality, fit close to the body and they are reinforced at the top where the weapon enters which prevents them from collapsing when weapon is drawn and makes reholstering much easier...You may want to consider something with a sweat shield so weapon is not in direct contact with your skin....think they are worth a look....Good luck
