    Lol. It looks like wearing that one I posted a picture of would be terrible for speed drawing. I just use a Serpa as a drop leg...

    Ya I use a serpa now. But prior to deploying the one you posted a pic of is what we were issued to train with, only it was attached to the belt instead of the leg.

    In LV, it doesn't get notably cold. Last winter it hit the freezing point a few times around midnight. But it'll most likely translate to brisk fall weather in IL. You should be perfectly comfortable in a Letterman style jacket, or a heavy sweatshirt. That said, there's the chance that a Letterman will roll over a low hip holster and sweatshirts kinda look doofy tucked in. So, a drop-leg may be what you're looking for.

    My first drop-leg was a sewing-kit special. I used a luggage strap for the thigh band with a standard holster, and 2 mini-luggage straps to hold that up. I put the mini straps 2 inches forward and behind of the holster, stitched to the thigh band and with loops on top for my belt, and cut the luggage strap to length with the buckle between my legs. it didn't look terrible, and wasn't notably uncomfortable. Of course, being custom made, it fit like... well, like it was custom made. Only problem was (or maybe an advantage I couldn't use) with the overall lay out, a little lace around the edges and it would have been a very sexy ladies garter.

    My name is Alexander :] I've been 18 since January and I just learned a few days ago that I can legally open-carry. I live in Owensboro, KY, a small [~52,000] city where not a lot of people open-carry (I've only seen a few, only one that I can remember.) I'm saving up for a Glock 23, and I think that I'm going to buy the thumb drive holster from 5.11 and the drop-leg holster adapter, and I'm thinking when I go running with shorts I'll use the hip holster, and walking around with pants generally I think I'll use the drop-leg holster unless I run into trouble with too many complaints.

    Personally I find drop leg holsters a pain they leave ones firearm lot more exposed.

    They are usefully if one has a lot of other gear around your waist and can't place a normal waist holster on.

    Holy necrothread!

    I still have my dropleg, but it's been set aside for the bug out setup along with my shotgun scabbard and ammo pouches. It is nice to wear at times (especially driving long distance) but it will garner more attention around town. I don't typically criticize others carry gear, but honestly a good duty belt and hip holster will do you better than a dropleg for everyday carry.

    I prefer the drop leg. It allows me to draw swiftly from my hand's resting position. Only one smooth motion to draw and use.

    Little tricky to wear with chaps on a motorcycle or horse though. Horseback I prefer shoulder holsters.

    I have a few drop holsters and I like them just fine for driving and sitting but I'm very active and after a while they all start to slide. Until they start making affordable pants with molle attachments to keep the pistol still, I will use OWB.

    The "mall ninja" comments are made by those who are confusing their own personal preference with someone else's. Carry how you like.

    Well, 4 years is something but I haven't assisted in necroposting in a long time so ....

    I have and use a dropleg, but not a lot and not for daily OC. I find a dropleg is comfy for certain types of outdoor work and for some hiking conditions if wearing long pants and like activities. That being the case, the only reason I am OC dropleg in a town is for a quick stop for materials, gas, food or the like. I prefer strong side belt carry for daily OC for various reasons.

    I have one for my g19. I don't wear it going out to dinner or to the store or anywhere that has a lot of people around. It's mostly for camping, long driving, going to the range, working in the yard or building something in the garage, working in tight spaces. I only wear black pants with it as well.

    The drop leg for me is the most comfortable systems that I have. I have long arms and my hand naturally just wants to rest on it. That alone can be taken the wrong way in the sight of others so to avoid that I just don't wear it in high public areas. To each their own though.
