"Predatory criminals who habitually illegally carry stolen firearms don’t use holsters so that when the mercenary proxy-guardian 'police' suspect them of having committed a felony by doing so, the predatory criminals can simply find the nearest Dumpster or drain and dispose of the evidence, your stolen legal defensive pistol. If you choose to carry without a suitable holster, whom do you most closely resemble? ‘Nuff said."
