    which brings up the question of internal pistol holsters on vests. a bit useless when you think about it. secure but no way you'll get to it quickly. if you do think you'll need it, it's just going to be popped in another pouch, etc.
    Yeah in Bks you can't really be walking around with a drop leg or with pistol mounted on vest. But on ops etc there's a place for it.

    Keep the pistol on your strong side, far more natural movement into a firing position.
    I don't know enough about pistol usage to pretend to be an expert. But judging from what I've read from the Americans a lot of it comes down to preference. The considerations of an LAPD copper and a Barrack Orderly Sgt are quite different. Cross draw has disadvantages in terms of an opponent blocking draw etc. but has advantages for vehicles etc. where as strong side carry has the advantage as its harder to block.

    From what I have observed the "up and out" method that you need when drawing from the hip can be cumbersome as opposed to the cross draw which feels more natural. But I'm sure with training that will change.

    Now I need to find a Bks friendly holster on the cheap.

      Don't see why a drop leg around a barracks wouldn't work.
      It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

            Similar to safariland & Serpa but cheaper. They won a big US army contract so it's good stuff.

            I'd try ringing daniel technology first though and ask them if they have any safarilands for the USP that they'd sell you. They're the agents for them here I believe.

              in the old, old days the holster was made of canvas with a simple flap and buckle.

                It's not practicable for duty.. It's a tactical holster designed to be lower on the leg to accommodate body amour/ battle vest.

                I wore an issue drop leg over seas and it was a pain in the arse... I now wear a belt holster ..If I wear my battle order I mount the holster on the battle vest.

                    I wear a Protac belt holster(strong side) and a protac ammo pouch on my weak side when on duty.Old viper dropleg when I wear my CEFO.Issue dropleg has the same problems as the issue dump pouch and respirator haversack.Impractical buckles on the leg straps(easily fixed).Also the issue dropleg has no thumbreak on the retention strap.I have been informed that the duties in a certain border Bks wear dropleg holsters as standard.
                    "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.
