Terry G: Hip or drop holsters are almost always on the strong side. Inconvenient as
heck for weak side draw. Also, when a single point sling is used on the
same side the rifle drops right onto the pistol and encumbers the draw.
Tactical considerations push to the chest mounted holster setup. The pistol
is a backup weapon for military. I know some police situations demand
pistol use and they should really consider quick weapon swap processes in
Wesley Swanson: not a fan of this guy lol "out"
AssaultPlazma: What plate carrier is that
Zachary Giddings: in a nutn shell... lol
Ross Carlson: I agree that practice, discipline, and proper handling are the real safety
system for any firearm, but I would have to say that a side holster is
safer than a chest mount because in a side holster, the weapon is pointed
at a relatively less critical area while mounting/dismounting the holster.
And it's only your own body it's pointed at. Not true of a chest mount
where the weapon is pointed at your own critical areas and quite possibly
that of the person next to you.
Anthony Chon: What Jacket is that?
ManOnATractor: Where can you get the horizontal holster? I can't seem to find one
anywhere. Aside from Googling I've tried PFIdude, Midway, Brownells,
CheaperThanDirt, Amazon.com. Thanks!
spyderc85: @Kataquan like Nut N Fancy said so Shoulder mounted holsters are the same
then, so Law Enforcement Officers break that rule every day.
blakfalcon1: the wonders of the safety catch and half rooster safeties :) oh and not being
a moron :P i wont carry a pistol in condition zero on my chest but i'd
happily carry in condition 1
endlich87: This is actually SOP carry for most of our special operations troops (ie
Rangers, SF, Marine Recon, etc.)
Sigp229TRT: @Hyakitaki Yup but the chest has a nice vest to protect the man nothing on
danieldefenseM4: @Solidgun Uh, soldiers and law enforcement do it all of the time. I do not
know of a single competent instructor that recommends much less uses a
chest mounted pistol. It is an accident waiting to happen. I would never
want to be standing beside him when he draws or holsters that pistol. And
whoa, where did drop leg holsters come into this? That is completely
different, and I do not have a problem with those. The only problem with
them are the inconsistency in draw.
Bob Wilson: Strange things happen, particularly when in a stressful situation.
Personally, I always carry on the belt and wouldn't stand next to someone
carrying like that. Roll around on the ground and stuff gets into the
holster, stuff gets pressed and my luck suggests I shouldn't tempt fate. To
each their own, I prefer to not see down the business end of a gun unless
absolutely necessary like during inspecting the barrel during cleaning.
Outside of that, I keep my barrel pointing away from people.
RetardedRussians: Video Summary: Don't be an idiot.
Madam Fragger: @CoolDre80 He gets or has a better holster. This is an older vid.
pin3apple95: Its fast its out of the way . not to mention it looks bad ass.
ToastyMozart: Skill/Experience level aside, it's still way safer than the bra holster
einhinder8809: @jewie27 unless you point them at themselves and pull the trigger.
Kylef7735: @ManOnATractor That horizontal holster is Discontinued sadly, it was the
Horizontal molle holster made by Tac Force
adamjbronson: Way to put it bro!! I think there are a lot of ways for people to hurt
someone and being a dummy is #1. Love the project and thanks for all your
hard work. You make YouTube fun!!!
Christopher Izzett: Hey, just wanted to say I love all your stuff and I 100% agree with you. I
am former U.S. Army and although I no longer serve and am not in law
enforcement, I practice running and gunning all the time as well as
training up a couple buddies of mine and we have never seen an incident. If
you can't run a chest mount safely you probably shouldn't be running ANY
holster system at all.
Gun Shinobi: I started running with a chest mounted pistol in 2003, when doing mobility
operations, it is best place to have your secondary when inside a vehicle,
especially as a driver and you find yourself in situation when you have to
use it to save your bacon. Having your pistol there is totally safe. Anyone
afraid to be on the range because someone has a chest mounted pistol should
point their weapons in a safe direction and clear them. Turn up up range
and move out.
MustangTrainer: Hall-Monitors! Chest carry is so "unsafe" that USPalms also rigs like that
on their "defender" series body armor...but i guess to the HM's, that
manufacturer doesn't know what they're talking about either.
BradTD: Not a fan of chest mount or shoulder but each his own
ThatChairsofter: Guy tells his 'Inspiring war story' about the chest rig Veri: Get some rest
HAHA Nice one XD
afr0shooterguy40: u tell em nutn. I would have just said I do what I wanna do and left it at
Chris M.: Any suggestions for how to carry rifle. I currently have a viking tactical
two point with the ability to sinch it tight to chest real fast, I love
this strap, but find it gets in the way of a chest mount pistol. Anyone
have any suggestions?
danieldefenseM4: I disagree with the argument that a hip mounted pistol can be just as
dangerous and a ND/AD can happen. That is true, but the worst that can
happen is you shoot YOURSELF in the leg/foot ect. A chest mounted pistols
is more dangerous in that in the event of a ND/AD, it will most likely be
at head/chest level, and if someone is hit they will be hit in a much more
susceptible zone. Honestly, I don't see how the "benefits", which I don't
see any, weigh out the dangers.
willirwin21: I personally prefer the old tanker style chest mounted holster, but you did
make a good point about people flagging themselves when using hip mounted
chefkristoffer: Well done and WELL SAID!!!
TheBoxerBoi: If this is what I think this is and where this is. This dude is a Bad BAD
BAD MAN and when he says hundreds and thousands of a hours on a range and
the people I think he is with. They live on a range. I would give anything
to be in his shoes.
Alexander Koch: When you operate with a chest-mounted holster, you are constantly violating
one of the four firearms safety rules. 'Nuff said.
cochranviper1: Hey Nutnfancy.... Where did you purchase your Holster??? I am trying to
Locate a setup similar to this for a Right side draw(left chest Mount) for
Tactical usage... Please Help, I am having a Difficult time locating 1
Kylef7735: @cochranviper1 The one he is using is the tac force "webtac" holster, like
15 bucks, great holster.
Ryan Smith: What's a 'requal'?
rmcnamara8: While I somewhat agree with Nutn,(A gun can't shoot by itself) I must say,
we are all guilty of the pointing inward while re-holstering...which is why
I do thigh mounted, If that happens under duress I'd rather have it pointed
at my thigh than my chest. I am confident enough to have a chest mounted
rig, it just gives me the willy's...lol, so I guess it's a personal
preference, but God forbid something happen(which it won't) I'd rather have
a round in my thigh than my chest.
Kataquan: So according to the logic, I can point a loaded gun at people all I want as
long as I keep my finger away from the trigger? These chest holsters break
gun safety rule #1, point the muzzle in a safe direction.
zePippin: what do you do? are you in the army?
Michael Keefer: Where and what type name brand is your holster ?
bobwatters: the problem i see with this rig is that its all about the person carring
it. its not like you can go up and ask the person with the chest mount if
they have the experince to use it. You even said you have seen guys with
fingers in the trigger gaurd holstering their pistol. what happens when
they do that with this rig and its pointed at your chest instead of the
ryan davies: i think your tips are awesome, i use your tips and methods when i'm
practicing with my air soft guns because i live in the UK i cant practice
with real fire arms but none the less, brilliant! i was thinking about
running a chest mounted Glock 17 in my next skirmish.
John_234: I think its important to remember that the four rules of firearms safety
are not designed with the assumption that humans are perfect and never make
mistakes. They're designed so that if any one rule fails, the others will
prevent a horrible accident. Sure, you can flag yourself with a hip
holster. But the difference is you're not flagging other people by walking
past them. Do remember that shoulder holster are being used less and less
for that reason as well.
rangerram1: Hall Monitor..love it..we call em NATO-No Action, Talk only
glenn h: Brilliant. The real problem is the ambiguity of some of the safety rules.
For instance, 'treat all firearms as though they are loaded." The problem?
Once you've made the gun safe, you should be able to treat it as safe,
during ie: dry fire, bore check, disassembly, military or LE demonstration.
Jeffrey Gardner: What model/make is the pistol?
ReaperMedic1: I would go with a SERPA or other holster, instead of a cloth holster, and
have it at a cant, so your muzzle isn't horizontal. Makes the reholster
easier. If it works for you, it works. I carried my M9 on my chest for a
Wyatt_Shirey: Appreciate you saying that people are so stupid and don't understand those
MyGuitarAndMyVoice: i love this method of carry!!! but im not squared yet cuz im broke and only

MattFromWork: Lol a "nutn" shell
