Is how you discover you have the ability to leap over a car hood even though you’re physically tired. At this point, I’m still not convinced the SOB wasn’t actively trying to run me down. I was at an intersection, trying to cross. Idiot Driver was turning right, but stopped for long enough that I assumed he was letting me cross. As soon as I got in front of where he’d be turning, he took off. I managed to leap up, putting my hand on his hood to vault over and landed on my feet. Idiot Driver...

I’ve thought about this. A lot. And I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not exactly the most feasible thing. The belly-pack looks dumb for one. While I’m sure it’s secure enough, it still looks like it has too much wiggle room. Not to mention getting it on & off looks like it’d be a pain, especially after you’re all tuckered out and sweaty. The one geared toward women seems like a better concept, but in order to provide enough stability so that your pistol doesn’t jiggle around, a wider...
