I love any joke with a bear getting kicked!

BTW guys, i'm pushing that we use the term "Bidened" for things such as warning shots and possibly for exceptionally blunderous statements.

I did like the sarcastic comment from someone about carrying it around your neck instead. Lol reminds me of good old times with a pork chop and fido, but that's another story for another time.

You're still right, a pocket is a less "easily accessible" place for a high risk situation to have to draw from. I cannot deny the logic, don't believe I ever have, but it still comes down to not all things work for all people. And in the end such an individual taste, preference or experience cannot be trumped or questioned by another.

The way I look at it, I'm content with the bed I've made, be it imperfect or even hardly sufficient for its intended purpose and, thankfully, I'm the only one whom must lay in it. ;D

I've seen those neck lanyard holsters... don't think I'd be comfortable with a loaded gun pointed straight up at my chin...

Suggestion for the pocket carry crowd.

Awhile back I saw some "Dockers" looking pants designed for this. The front pockets were "break away" velcro.

I believe there from 511 Tactical and looked like a good idea if pocket carry is your only viable option.

JD was a dead man standing when he walked out of the theater.
I doubt him being fully aware, with a 100 round Thompson, would
have changed that. But, I admit, not having a holster probably
didn't help.

Even Will Munney had his limitations. He wasn't much of a pistol
shooter, and was better drinking than sober. But he played to
his strengths. He shot deliberately, aimed, and wasn't a fan of
race gun draws, or anything fancy. He embraced the advantage
of a shotgun, and didn't kid himself he was special, or bulletproof.

Let me see if I understand, if I where to say: To carry a revolver with an exposed hammer deep in my pants pocket is the best and fastest draw method available" it would be a bidened statement. Correct?

Sounds about right.

"Bears make good housepets and are far more easily trained than German shepherds" very Bidened.

Bingo...

...and that's all I'm saying. We LAC's do all we can to be aware of our surroundings but we do NOT get to choose the time we get attacked. It's not up to us.

...and when fists are trying to make contact with my head, I don't wan't to be struggling to free a gun from my pocket.
