I live in Lancaster, PA fairly close to a road with moderate traffic. The Amish often travel down this road. My dog, a one and a half year old pek-a-poo hates the Amish. My wife and next door neighbor are sitting on the porch, my neighbor holding the leash as the buggy goes past. Dog darts out after buggy, gets away from my neighbor. I give chase. Catch dog after nearly a half mile.
Lesson learned:
-I need a new holster for my BUG (taurus 85) If I carry it as my primary, I typically carry it in a fobus. today, since it was a back up to my 1911, I had it in a Blackhawk IWB holster(no retension other than belt) Because of the running, the belt bouncing failed to retain the 38.
-PT,PT,PT. I was unnacceptabley winded after the chase. So I had a beer. lol
-Fatter puppy. Fatter=slower j/k
-No more f'n flip flops. had to abandon them on the first stride. running down the shoulder, on a fairly busy road,over rocks and shit, is not fun.
-A chase person is invaluable. My wife, while giving chase to me, recovered the 38 in mid-stride before it had even stopped sliding. I love my back up.
I know that I should have a fence, but I live in an apartment and the landlord doesn't want to put one in. Dog is awesome, so she will not be getting ejected. Wife is too good to eject. I hope that I addressed everyones typical comments.

Just teach your neighbor how to hold the leash properly.

Soooo....tossing it down the driveway wasn't good enough?





Glad you caught the dog.

You have learned a valuable lesson in a "training" environment. Now, go forth and buy quality holsters from Blade-Tech or Comp-Tac, etc.

Legal notice: This poster is not an expert, but he has never had retention problems during similar physical activity with his holsters from the manufacturers he named above.

BTW, even if my guns stayed in the holster, I'd still be winded after that too!

Thank you fo the feed back. I have a better holster but passed on it for comfort-never again. I also have a new one on the way from kholster. ETA- never had a problem with the fobus with retention. i know it is cheap, but it works.
