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?

What I really like is the quick connect ability. I can put the clasp on my belt before I leave, drive to were i need to go, get out, clip on the holster and im ready to go. Also makes those quick trips to the store from the deer camp much easier since I dont need to remove my belt.

Ive found it does like to shift positions a bit; mostly bc mine only has one strap attached to the belt. Usually, just a little tightening of the leg strap does the trick. But its not so bad where Id consider not using it. I gave it a proper field test yesterday; shooting my pistol and shotgun. After a few hours wearing it, I still prefered it to a hip holster. Its a little hard to draw the spare mag from the pouch, but that comes with practice I guess
