Well, Joy, I have read the entire chapter at this point but let me ask you: why strap weapons to one's thighs if not for concealment? It makes no sense to me. Do you think a pistol can be drawn more quickly from the thigh than from the hip (or the shoulder, for that matter)? If not for concealment, why the thigh? What makes that superior to the shoulder or the hip? Especially when one considers that the thigh automatically imposes a friction problem not there when using the hip or shoulder option? Come on! As a gun collector
(and nut) I have numerous hip and shoulder holsters. This makes no sense.
