    It is one of the most frequent gun-safety mistakes by criminals, and for a good reason: a gun stored that way can be both easily concealed and quickly discarded when the police are closing in (Carrying it in a holster, on the other hand, would require discarding the holster as well, as it would be clear evidence of illegal possession of a weapon).

    As for the not-as-yet-criminals, they like it for the most obvious reason—it looks cool and edgy. But they have no excuse. If I were a gun-safety instructor, I'd no-go anyone in the class I saw storing their gun like that (as well as shooting gangsta style) There is absolutely no reason why anyone legally permitted to carry should carry like a criminal. In fact, carrying that way should be against the law for exactly that reason.

      reach around and pull a gun out from the back of his waistband, i think --- wait a minute ... you were sitting in a chair with that that thing stuck in your pants, between your back and the chair? Huh?

      I'm surprised they don't fall out (or slide down the inside) within 5 or 10 minutes of being stashed.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
