Depends on where you are...?

Sometimes you've gotta wonder about search terms... Amongst the handful of "is the M&P15-22 good for home defense?" searches was this gem:

I guess in certain parts of the world it may be frowned upon, and in parts of this country alone there's numerous places where some people think they should be in the kitchen makin' sammiches instead. 

I'm just going to assume they forgot a word or something.  Maybe they were wondering if it's ok for women to shoot guns when pregnant? If that's the case, my sister's doctor told her no, the fluid acts to sort of amplify the sound, and there's no way to put ear pro on a fetus as of yet.

Holster updates

I did some holster reviews a while back, the Raven Concealment Phantom being one of them, and I just thought I'd mention that one of the "paddle" clips snapped yesterday as I was heading out for the day.  I haven't notified RC yet, so we'll see what comes of it.

I do have to say, that after using this holster for a while now, the "paddle" (not a true paddle, but two clips that hook inside the waistband) option is far from the best, and I only continued to use them due to the stupidity of Wisconsin laws and the convenience of being able to take the holster off without removing my belt.  They tend to dig into my hip and never felt completely secure.

Oh wells, looking at the Blade-Tech offerings for the new Smith, so we'll see how that goes.  The only downside is that they don't seem to have the single mag pouches in Dark Earth, but the holsters I'm looking at are... le'sigh.  Anybody have any experience with the thumb break models from them? I like the idea of retention for OC, and they're not as "cop" looking as the WRS option.
