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 use to have one them holsters back in high school. I loved that thing. Its lost now, but i use to carry a 1911 in it when we hunted and rode 4 wheelers and while working.
I wish i knew where it was, cause i cant find one like it now.
I been lookin at the safariland rig for my xd. Ive hit my funny bone too many times on my pistol in the paddle holster.
