The guy needed a better holster that retained it during a struggle. He did not give up the fight and could have used a good blade to assist him. The pursuit welllllll that's not a good idea but in a the heat of battle we all have done silly things lol
Holster quality is too important to overlook. Brand names are meaningless in battle. How does you holster stack up during a struggle? Do you KNOW or are you assUming?

Hmm...it would appear I need to reconsider my inordinate fondness for OWB scabbard style holsters.   Arthritis has severely limited my ability to effectively use a Level 3 retention holster, so it would appear to be either shoulder holsters or appendix carry from now on.  Fanny packs? They just scream "GUN!" Some of my contemporaries use them. Nothing more eye-catching than an old hipster in Bermuda shorts and wingtip shoes, with a front-carried fanny pack.  On second thought…

Level 2 is fine if it snap lock into the kydex or something similar. There are so many material styles that don't lock it in it scary. If you are to old to wrestle around in a real training session then at least roll around at home and even loosen the belt like it broke or something and see what happens.
