I'm a fan of the Three Persons design to the point of owning & having used a box full of them. On the trail.
But an open top holster with no security straps whatsoever, with minimal concealment, is a great way for an older gent to loose his gun to a thug, or to be shot by their own gun.
This ain't TV, & I ain't Matt Dillon.
Well, I do fall into the category of "older" while "gent" may be questionable.
But, as to losing my gun to a thug, first of all, he has to know I am armed and where my gun is. Secondly, he has to know how to fire a Single Action revolver. (Recent case: burglar was shot by homeowner because the burglar didn't know to thumb cock a Single Action.) And I won't let anyone get in arm's reach of me unless I know them very well. This "six foot distance" practice has benefitted me very well. Sort of gets my hackles up when that is encroached.
