Speed reholstering

Pretty graphic pics of why that may not be worth doing.

    I’ve never seen an AD caused by this, but as I practice with a holster at every range session, I can say that it is worth being diligent and mindfully stepping through reholstering. I have on occasion caught myself with my finger where it should not be, shirt where I didn’t need it, etc. Slowly reholstering lets you catch that stuff without the annoying bang. And I have seen plenty of people doing the Paladin reholster just as the article described.

    Gee Gaston, ‘lemme see here. You’re doing away with the hammer, and moving the safety lever to the trigger. Cops ‘gonna LOVE this.

    This is why you should just always keep the gun in your hand. It does make mixing your cocktails tricky, though.

    No one ever won a gunfight by being the first back in the holster.

    something we teach the rookies: draw fast, holster slow.

    Over the years, I’ve seen several AD’s like this, including two during matches (in standards courses that had multiple strings). By sheer luck, I’ve seen no injuries first hand.

    If you decock and leave the safety on before reholstering, this cant happen. Oh…wait…now I remember. These here hip youngsters dont like old fashioned stuff like hammers and safetys. So, ok then, you have to put up with the occasional “glock leg”.
