Then they have to worry about things like earrings should go with a necklace and things like which heels to wear with a red dress. I didn’t know how tough this could be…this world of fashion.
Then I started to think. Usually I put on my blue jeans and go to work. When I get to work, I put on a dark blue uniform. My fashion problems at that point have to do with: “should I wear a long sleeve or short (where I work this can be a question year round.)
But, since I got promoted to Sergeant, I now may have to dress up to do other duties. Then the fashion problems abound.
Well, if I’m wearing a suit, should I use the .380 Beretta in the shoulder holster, or the XD .45?
If I’m doing a presentation to some citizens, should I wear the Para .45 in a hip holster, then should I use black or brown. Oh, if it's going to be night time, should I wear the XD 45 with the light attached?
Some basic weapons fashion concepts:
1.) Never use a nylon holster unless you are in a combat zone. They look crappy.
2.) If you are wearing a black belt, you must have a matching black holster, do not mix colors
3.) If you are dressed for the night out, bring a smaller pistol so it doesn’t show.
4.) Test all holsters by jumping up and down to make sure you are not going to drop something and be embarrassed in public
5.) Wearing a pistol off duty or in plain clothes is not supposed to be comfortable, it’s supposed to be comforting.
6.) Whenever possible, bring a pistol that starts with “FORTY”, like .40 or .45 caliber.
In some cases, no other pistol will work for the job, and you just have to take something small...
So, the next time you or somebody you know is worried about shit like lipstick and things, be thankful you don't have problems like this. And this was only some of my holsters and pistols. Somedays it's overwelming and I just carry it like this:
