This link provided earlier has some good western fast draw rigs:Dethlokk said:You've probably seen these things in movies, holsters that extend the gun from the lower forearm into the hand, using a spring-loaded or momentum-driven rail system. So all it takes is a quick flick of the wrist, and there's suddenly a gun in your hand! If you've ever seen Taxi Driver, the character Travis Bickle fabricates one with what appears to be the slider of a desk drawer. What I was wondering is, do they actually make them or are they just a movie prop? How do they work? Where can I buy one?
When I competed, IPSC holsters had to be attached to the belt, which is not what the OP is talking about at all. I don't think the IPSC comparison is relevant since the rules of that game require a belt holster - though I don't think the "Travis Bickle" forearm holster is practical.leeindy said:no they dont make them. some people might have ones but it makes absolutely no difference for speed. if it did the top ipsc shooters would use them... and they dont.
I think its more of a gimmick than anything else........Didnt that Guy in Red Heat have one?leeindy said:no they dont make them. some people might have ones but it makes absolutely no difference for speed. if it did the top ipsc shooters would use them... and they dont.
