Opinions on Thigh / Drop-leg Holsters

Something Ive noticed since I bought my gun is that there appears to be a resentment towards thigh holsters.

I bought my pistol primarily as a hunting sidearm. My experience with revolvers in belt holsters was that the holster always in the way and i would strike the weapon with my elbow when walking. It was unconfortable and, personally, I couldnt reach the gun easily.

I bought a UTG thigh holster; adjustable with quick connect. After some minor adjustments, it holds the gun firmly and securely and well out of elbow range. Also, the holster does not ride or shift positions when walking and is fairly comfortable to wear. And with a little practice, I have been able to quickly draw the gun and put it on target.

Is it just my imagination or is there some resistance to using drop-leg holsters. Personally, I prefer them to belt-rigs.

Thoughts or comments?

I've got one for the same reason you've stated, as well as for use on my "range" when I'm using a variety of pistols for target shooting....I do not shoot competitive pistol, which is the guys that don't like them... it is leather with a very soft lining that won't scratch the purdyest of guns.... It fits 1911's, 44mag Revo, S&W 22A, FN's, Glock, SIG....others... A heavy gun carried a long way could be cumbersome I believe, but I really like mine. :thumbup:
I like a paddle holster as well, adjusted to the lowest position....don't like the gun high on my hip - unless required for concealment....
