Just thought I'd make a fun post and see who out there carries a 45acp and if so what gun and also in what holster or rig? Mine is my Glock 30 in an alien gear cloak tuck 3.0

A Glock 30 ain't a hog leg, this is a hog leg!!

Funny story about the term. We were in Branson, MO and getting ready to take a train ride down through the Ozarks. They were checking bags and the conductor was cutting up and asked my Mother-In-Law 'You don't have a hog leg in that big purse of your's do you?' Dead serious, she says 'No, but I might have some peanut butter crackers if you are hungry. Why would I have a hog leg in my purse?' :headscratch

Everyone just busted out laughing. We had to explain to her what the term was in reference to. :roll:

I have a paraordnance P14 1911, I carry it in a pancake holster, I do have a drop leg holster from when I was a medic on a tactical team but I'd never wear that out and about. I have been OC'ing alot since the weather has gotten hot

For OC, I sometimes wear a full size Colt 1911 in an El Paso Saddlery Strongside Select.

M&P 45c, in a On Your 6 IWB or a White Hat IWB, if I'm not carrying my Shield 9mm.
Alternate back and forth depending on how I feel.

Either a gold cup in a galco fletch or a xd45 tactical in a Bianchi owb.
I'm fond of leather and thumbstraps, and big holes.
When any govt, or church,says This you can't read, are forbidden to know, the result is tyranny and oppression. Little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked; no force can control a free man, not the rack, bombs, not anything, you can't conquer a free man, at most you can kill him.

I guess I don't consider a "Hog Leg" any thing short of a 8 " barreled pistol such as a Peace Maker. Some thing like John Wayne told "Drego" to pull out in Mc Clintock.

G21SF in a Safariland 7T 7378 with mounted TLR1 using the belt slide because the paddle had too much of a forward cant that could not be adjusted enough.

or

G30SF in a Blackhawk Sportster paddle until a 7TS is available.

I am not a LTC instructor, lawyer, or expert on this matter. However, my input would be that:

1. I did a search for the word "belt" in Chapter 46, Texas Penal Code (Weapons), and did not find language actually defining what constitutes a belt holster.

2. From what have observed, many/most of the drop leg holsters connect in some manner with a belt to provide support.

3. From a purely practical perspective, it seems to me as though a drop-leg holster may result in hindering accessibility when seated or whenever the hips are flexed, such that the user may find it difficult to get a 100% full grip on the gun prior to draw from holster. Extending/raising the hips (so the upper leg is parallel with the torso, as in a standing position) might make it easier to get the full grip and smooth draw.

Maybe a sandbox veteran, police officer or someone else with extensive experience with these types of holsters can share their experience and any recommendations.
