Some people have a hard time holstering a pistol without sweeping themselves. In fact, in the new IDPA rulebook it clearly says that due to a person's body type they can not holster a gun without sweeping themselves. There shall be no penalty for sweeping oneself. If you are using an IWB holster, pocket carry or a belly band holster it's damn near impossible to holster a gun without sweeping yourself. Some of us have good and valid points why an OWB holster is a bad idea. That is another thread.

Yes, but...

That's not an issue with body type. That's an issue with stupidity and bad training.

Sweeping due to body type, yeah okay I'll give you that one. It happens, cant discriminate against fat people, they should be able to defend themselves too. Sweeping your off-hand while securing the holster? Hey I'll even give you that one, with some holsters it's necessary. Sweeping your off-hand while holstering with your finger on the trigger as listed in the OP? When is THAT ever okay?!

$600 or more on a handgun, and $19 on a walmart holster, and a $3 walmart belt, is one problem. No amount of training can overcome bad equipment.

I recommend a good quality dedicated holster that fits exactly, the gun being used, and a good quality Instructors belt, like www.thewilderness.com

Holstering is not a timed for speed element of the presentation. One needs to practice, practice, practice, all aspects of gun handling.

x100. And who the hell taught them to move that muzzle anywhere from downrange with a digit still inside the trigger guard? Do that on a pro range and you're a tackle dummy.

Absolutely. Nothing worse than a holster that is less than a perfect fit.
