RE: Back country elk hunt & protection...
First suggestion, watch this video:
It references 1911, but they can be used interchangebly with XD's.
(sorry, a little sarcasm for all the resident XD fans here :) )
I use a Eberlestock gunslinger2. I’ve shot the occasional match that incorporate pistol and rifle,
so I’ve wanted fairly quick access to both the rifle (scabbard) and pistol(hip belt) in the past.
I opted to use a kydex OWB holster that had two belt loop type attachments.
My pack has molle on the hip belt, but your hunter optic pack could probably facilitate similar belt attachments for the wider webbing.
It will sit a little high for drawing, but you should not be drawing from it with high frequency anyhow and it would certainly be quicker than going to the scabbard.
I’ve never tried the thigh rigs, and I know it’s frowned upon to offer suggestions based on theory on this site without real experience,
but I’d only offer that most opinions I’ve heard about the thigh rigs is that they wear on you after a long treks/carry (feels like a big boat anchor). Maybe others can confirm?
I’m not sure if you’re going through a lot of thick brush,
in which case a chest rig might not snag as much as the hip location,
or if you run any Bino’s on the chest, but my experience with the hip location has been good thus far.
RE: I had a rant... and it felt great.
I'm surprised this article made the news feed:
Catchy headline :-P
RE: YouTube Video Of The Day
So when this gent says, "I'm going to sit down and shoot about like I would at a match. " and then lets off those rounds at that fast rate of fire. Is he suggesting he obtained that 600 yard group at that same rate?! I know very little about BR , but that just seems crazy😳
