    I've said it before and I'll say it again, anyone who assumes that carrying in a holster automatically means the person is a "good guy" is a fool.

    While the majority of crooks don't use holsters, a sizeable minority do. Just like most crooks will carry any gun they can get their hands on, while some crooks are very picky in their gun selection.

    Anyone, cop or not, who assumes a person is not a criminal simply because that person uses a holster is an ignorant fool. I've arrested enough crooks with holsters to know better.

    I don't think anyone is advocating that. It's simply one clue or piece of the puzzle for the officer to consider.

    Because they are neither ignorant enough nor apathetic enough to carry without a proper holster. Mexican or other carry without an actual holster says a lot about the person doing it.

    I don't think we should not encourage the use of holsters by the criminal class. Like holding a gun sideways, the consequences are to our advantage.

    :faint:Either you're joking, or you've never seen a gangsta movie or a rap video where the gangbangers hold the gun sideways.

    There are Racist undertones with that add & it's implications & company name and these things do not resonate with Middle left posters ...:rofl:

    Concealed carriers generally wear holsters,why?

    Not necessarly in order of importance:
    1. I am legally carrying.
    2. I paid good money for my Glock.
    3. It is safer.
    4. I have no intention of having to throw my weapon away if confronted by an officer.
    5. Because it is just plain stupid not to wear a holster.
    6. I usually need a belt to hold my pants up, so why not hang a holster on it.

    This. I took a school once on spotting concealed carry in the criminal element and it was pointed out at the school that felons don't want to get caught with a holster, it makes too many questions. the gun by itself is much easier to ditch.

    So you admit it is racist? Why would we tolerate it in our modern society unless we are racists?

    I guess I should think of another name for my Homeboy Nyte Sytes compatible holster, which I was thinking of calling the Gat Hodah. :upeyes:
