I say carry what you like, but if you are going to carry something, at least have a working knowledge of how to carry it safely. I'm not a huge antique revolver expert, but even I know that old revolvers need to have the hammer down on an empty chamber, or a sharp rap to the hammer will set them off. (Such as, you know, dropping it on the floor.)Western-style holster? Antique revolver?
I'm not going to judge anyone's carry system...but if you're going to choose something unconventional like this, you should compliment it with an extra sense of caution.
Only reason I can think someone would whip a belt off and throw their pants to the floor is that they REALLY had to go.
Could have been a real emergency.Who just throws their gun on the floor anyway? I only own modern handguns, but I wouldn't just let them slam to the floor. They're a bit too expensive for me to be abusing them like that. Not to mention that any mechanical safety device can fail, and I'd rather avoid testing them unless absolutely necessary.
