You make some good points fletch, especially about being a use of force instructor.

Aout the Exoskeleton holster. It seems reasonably secure. If you don't like it, there are aftermarket holsters available if you googlesearch.

The question is: how will you carry it? Cross draw or support side draw? I carry support side but many of our officers carry cross draw so it is used with the gun hand.

Well, if I carry it cross draw like I was planning, I'll have to move my extendable, which I really don't want to do. The thought of support side draw never really seemed to cross my mind, so what I'll do is put it on my duty belt in both locations and see which one feels the most natural.

If I was really paranoid, though, I'd see if I could find a three-point holster for it, but I don't think it will be that much of a problem.

I had a scenario not too long ago where I had a guy brandishing a knife. First I challenged with the firearm. He turned and ran back into his house. I chased after on foot, reholstering the firearm and drawing the Taser. Tried to Tase him in the back as he was running through the kitchen but as I fired, he ducked around a corner. The probes stuck in a couch. Turned off the Taser and dropped it, redrawing my firearm without stopping.

As bad as I felt about missing the perp, I felt better about the location of the Taser on my belt and using my off hand to deploy rather than using my gun hand for everything.

I just wanted to let you guys know that as civilian I find this thread most engaging. It also helps to place into the mind where I put things in my pockets in general life as viewed froma self-defense position...

-do I put my wallet in my back left or right pocket, do I want to draw it with my dominant or my support hand?

-do I carry my keys in my left hand or right hand? I always hold them to be used as a kubotan if needed, but do I want my dominant punching/manipulating hand free or holding it?

Hmm, I shall have to ponder.

A little off topic, but maybe others reading this will think about these as well.
