Mods I posted this in Stragies also, let me know which would be more appropriate.

I am getting ready to go to the range for a day of shooting.....temps should be in the upper 40's and the sun will be shining. Will start with the ConTact match and then some rifle and pin-shooting......Let the fun begin!!! :D

What is the reasoning behind holstering your gun one-handed?. I always believed that it was best to learn to do this for a couple of reasons.
• You avoid sweeping your off-hand while trying to holster
• You may not always have the use of both hands (holding something, injury, etc)

Some of the guys are new at this and I was hoping to have more concrete reasons for them to practice. Other problems include the fact that some are using IWB holsters that close up one the weapon is removed. There is also their physical condition, specifically that some are not as flexible or trim as they’d need to be to holster easily one-handed.

If there is anyone out there that can reply to this question before I leave (at 0830 EST) I’d appreciate it. I have spent most of the morning trying to find an answer, using the search function, but there are a LOT of references to holsters out there and I’ve got to leave for a bit. I will check in again before I go.

It's sunny and mid-40s where I am.

"Stumpy", a la Thunder Ranch=a person who coonfingers his pistol while re-holstering with both hands. E.g., the other hand is holding open the Uncle Mike's collasping holster and they put one through their hand trying to wiggle pistol into holster, inter alia.

Buy good holsters and good belts. Have them learn to handle weapon properly.
