    I think that for a complete self-defense training regimen you should train enough grappling to be able to get free of the bear hug. I wouldn't want to be drawing a gun when I don't have a whole lot of control over where my arms go.

    I'd make breaking the bear hug a priority to

    I've spent a little time, long ago, learning how to make shots in contact.
    It an action of final recourse, to say the least

    Have you trained with the type of intensity that causes a holster to fail?

    If not, read some of the stickies in the training forum first.

    I can tell you with certainty and experience that when a violent assailant attacks your holstered firearm, the integrity of the clips is crucial. To get a look at what this type of training looks like, take a look at the videos on the USSA site.

    I have taught this very subject to thousands of students and have seen a huge number of holsters that that their owners thought were the bomb in a competition, fail miserably when subjected to violent physical asault.

    Kydex clips are one of the biggest culprits of these failures.

    If your gun gets attacked, it won't matter what you do for a living; You'll want a strong, rigid system supported by strong physical alternatives.

    Understood . Please let clarify that stament is made in the context of current SDA laws.
    We get to run away if it's prudent, you guys don't. We get to "deadly force" while you guys are still working escalation of force.

    I still struggle mentally when I use an open top holster, having grown up in the "thumb break" heyday. The compromise between concealment and retention should be scrutinized by any person who carries a handgun

    UPDATE: I decided to try wearing this little beauty "tucked" today and so far I have been to the eye Dr. and other non-gun friendly places and no one even suspected I was carrying. Here is a picture I snapped after wearing it all morning. No adjustments of the shirt etc. Just stood up and took a picture.
