Great idea only if it is a "Break-away" type neck lanyard and the only thing you have on it is a whistle, keys, a small knife or an ID badge. Guns...no way.What do you all think about the neck lanyard idea? Do you think it is safe enough or do you think it is too much hassle?
a holster is a place to keep a pistol when not in use. a lanyard is to retain your pistol if the holster fails to retain the pistol. mainly useful if your running around ducking and dodging. not very important for civilian use. i like the loop itself as it is an excellent physical force multplier if used hand to hand style. the lanyard loop on military style 1911A1 mainspring housings make excellent tools to fracture skull bones on a pistol whipping in hand to hand combat. i been looking for on for my colt series 70 and new agent.Isn't that what a holster is for?
