    On my large frame trying to wear a gun in my pants would look retarded. When it's warm I'll just OC and CC with a hoody/coat when it's cold.

    That's pretty much what I'm thinking. Probably going to order a serpa as it's the only open top holster with active retention for the SR9.

    The whole idea is to be able to draw as fast as possible isn't it?

    Please research the serpa before you purchase it. Unless of course like in other instances you'll completely disregard the knowledge and experience that can be garnered from others.

    :rofl: What knowledge and experience have I disregarded? Besides wearing safety glasses while shooting bolt action .22's in the desert with nobody else around and no chance of a casing bouncing off of something....

    Oh that's right, the bolt could like explode and shoot out the back of the gun. :rofl:

    and I know how some people feel about the serpa. Mind you, I don't understand how someone could pull the trigger while drawing there weapon. But meh.

    No doubt. But how many rifles have you ever heard of where the bolt flew out of the back of the gun? Seriously, we wear eye protection to protect our eyes from wild casings. You don't exactly get wild casings when using a bolt action .22.

    Hmm let's see, high pressure explosives going off inches from you children's eyes and you refuse to have them wear eye protection. Eye protection is not for the bolt exploding backwards in your face. It's for unburnt powder and hot gasses. Ever think what might happen if they get a hang fire or a squib?

    People aren't ragging on you for no reason, having your kids wear eye protection requires practically 0 effort on your part. If you're going to allow your kids to shoot don't act like you and your family are immune from accidents.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm well aware that accidents can happen. But most of the scenerios presented are so unlikely it would be like having them wear helmets wherever they go. I just can't see any realistic scenario happening that would warrant wearing eye protection. Inside a range where casings are bouncing off the walls then sure... We didn't even use eye protection in the military outside of the range.

    :sadwavey: both and I've never shot indoors. Left a little blood on my body but would have fucked up my eyes.

    At a PR match last month a bystander got hit under his prescription glasses because of the debris thrown up from another shooter 10 feet away.

    Vision and hearing are two of the most important things in life. Why anyone would chance it with their children is beyond me.

    I've been hit by your splatter. Very unpleasant to say the least.
