    I bought a Sig 225 P6 from aim, it's going to be my new hunting back up. Can anyone recomend a good DURABLE thigh rig?

    I'd look at tacticaltailor.com. He has a thigh-rig holster, or a drop-leg panel with modular holster that you could configure however you want.

    You would probably be better off with a decent strong side kydex holster. The thigh rigs are not that practical unless your wearing a whole lot of other gear on the belt. They are much slower to draw from too.

    You'll look less like a mall ninja tactical testical too.

    I think mine was $70 full price, but apparently no one wanted to buy the one for a P99, so they had it half off :wiggle:

    When are you going to come train with us? With your location you can't be that far away.

    I'm a short little fucker. my rifle bumps against my pistol while I hike. Also very hard to get to under cold weather gear.

    I was debating the practicality of a leg rig for hunting, but you just made a good case to lower your holster below a coat.

    While the 6004 is king, for tromping through woods and brush, I think I'd prefer something a little more low profile. HSGI Airborne or John Willis High Ride or Drop Leg would keep the gun closer to your leg and present less crevices to snag brush.

    I knew a guy that worked with the owner of SOTech and he constantly ranted and raved about how "shitty" blackhawk was. It's always held up, for me. However, he has changed his tune a little bit as he outsources more and more to keep up with demand for product.

    If I were a navy seal and my life depended on this gear every day and I needed to actually use my belt as a towstrap between a tank and a humvee then maybe I'd go elsewhere.... But I've never had blackhawk let me down in my weekend-warrior crap.
