Comments from some assclown by the name of "3boxesofbs" from the website:

 

Okay 0– It’s nylon — so what? Is it holding the firearm securely?

It’s hard to see? So is a IWB under a shirt, an OWB rig at a person’s side — any particular reason to believe that a carrier has to keep an eye on his firearm at all times?

Easy to steal? — really ? Someone is going to risk trying to kip off with a loaded firearm from someone openly carrying it when they can simply break into 3 houses and have a better chance of getting one and getting away without being caught?

Muzzling every — well, yeah. A firearm in a holster, secured with a retention strap is really a danger. All the detectives that carry in a horizontal shoulder holster — let’s not get carried away with the 4 rules; otherwise people could seldom carry at all.

I don’t get this type of post. We want more people to carry, to take responsibility for their safety but ridicule anyone who doesn’t carry exactly the way we would like them to.

Does the holster do what it is designed to do? Yes. Does it create excessive safety hazard? NO. Can he do better? Sure. Is it necessary that he do better? NO.

Lighten up folks.

 

He then follows up with this:

 

Tactically squared away?

Seriously stop and think about what you are saying. The odds of first a person needing it is incredibly low. The odds of being involved in a force on force situation is even lower.

This is exactly what I’m talking about. We want people to carry but it sounds like you don’t approve unless that have a Level 99,999 Retention Rig with 5,700 hours of training in retention, weak hand only shooting from underneath a car at multiple targets.

How does this help make carrying seem like something most everyone can and should do?

 

Assclowns are everywhere or so it seems.

I've staring at it for 3 minutes trying to figure out how it's attached to his belt, because I don't think it's designed to be carried there(belt clip is showing). Slid the belt through the holster maybe?

It's a Bagmaster holster. It has a belt slide on both sides, and you can move the metal clip from side to side as well. Decent, inexpensive, non-tactical brand of holster. Just not the way he's using it.

Yeah, got a friend who uses a Bagmaster as a car-gun holster in the 'better than no holster' option, but that's just fucked up right there....

Not an expert by any means but at first glance the pistol lines/shape indicated an H&K P7.  If yes - then the guy is even more stupid because he has a $1200-$1500 pistol in a $7 holster.  He could f at least spent $100 and got a good one.

 

That is, unfortunately. an HK P7.  When God and JMB made the 1911, they sat down and had an after work dram of Lagavulin.  JMB said he had some other ideas but never got around to it.  Then, years later, some Germans ended up having the same discussion, although over some boots of Spaten Octoberfest.  God and HK then gave birth to the P7, the greatest 9mm ever.  See, bet you guys didn't know the backstory.

 

As to the holster, I can't believe all you guys missed the obvious.  He's a LEFTY.  Uh.....DUH.

Presumably there is a channel on the other side to move the clip when carrying on the other side.  He threaded his belt through the channel. 

 

Reminds me of an armored car guard I would periodically see at the Federal Reserve Bank (near where I picked up the commuter van). He had some form of revolver in one of those Uncle Mikes hunting holsters. He would undo the "retention" strap while walking to the building.  The strap was so frayed it looked like a small rodent was hanging from his holster.
