All of a sudden, I don't feel so bad about wishing I had the Robocop-style, spring-loaded, hollow thigh.

Completely agree. First thing I'd ask, "Are you Gecko45?"

Mark, So you can draw that weapon from your DL, while seated in a car?!!?



Maybe I'll get a response here.

I am curious about this, myself.

It's actually not as bad as you might think. I wore the drop leg this past Sunday when I went to visit my mom and help her out around the house, and while parked, I experimented with the kind of draw you asked about. With the slightly smaller-than-standard G23, it's not too bad - I just have to lift my shoulder a couple of inches to get the clearance, and I can't get a good combat grip until I clear the holster, but it's significantly less movement than if I were to try and draw from a left-handed hip holster with the same or any other firearm. I will do a video to show you what I mean, possibly tonight.

I wore the drop-leg holster this past Sunday. I wasn't planning on being outside much, and the bit of time I did spend out - walking her dogs, picking up boxes from the store - resulted in little other than a few surprised or inquisitive looks from a few passers-by.

There were two interactions of note, though. At the Wawa by the intersection of Routes 252 and 1, while in line to pay for a couple of sodas, the girl in line in front of me was crouching to get a pack of gum off the impulse rack. As she stood up, she noticed me there, where I hadn't been before, and her eye caught my thigh holster right away.

"Oooooh...whoa!" I wasn't sure if she just got really excited or not. I smiled. "...what's that for?"
I wanted so badly to say something disgusting. Big Grin "Just for protection."
"Oh! Okay. So you have a permit."
"Well, you don't need a license to carry openly."
She looked thoroughly confused. "You mean you can just wake up, strap that on, and go out?" She wasn't being sarcastic, she was genuinely interested in knowing the answer.
"Yes - Pennsylvania is an 'open carry state' - you do need a license if you want to conceal or take it into a car, though."
"Wow...how about that."

Later on, after I had gotten to my mom's place, I'd noticed a Comcast subcontractor in the back of the house, working on the lines. Apparently, mom has new neighbors, and they are getting hooked up with internet. About fifteen minutes after I had gone in, I was on my way back out to the car to grab something, and as I opened the front door from the inside of the house, the Comcast guy was just about to reach for the same door from the outside. The outside landing is about half a foot lower than the inside, and the guy was partially crouching to pick up some of his gear when I opened the door. He looked up in surprise, his eyes immediately caught the Glock in the thigh holster against blue camo pants, and his mouth reacted faster than his brain could keep up - "Oh, shit!"

Made me chuckle.

Look on the bright side, in the unlikely event you get bored of the drama you can always write for porn movies.

Well, you do need a LTCF to carry during a declared state of emergency. Which I believe we are still in. I try to mention that and the exclusion of Philadelphia and Federal gun-free school zones when educating someone on Pa's gun laws.

Good call. Since I have an LTCF, the SOE means little to me, so I usually don't think about it too much.
