In my story, I don't want my MC to wear his pistol on his belt, at the side like almost all cops in real life do. The reason why is because it's not the smartest way to wear it. They wear that it way, because the holster can fit on a belt, and the belt can also hold up your pants. But the waist is too high for a quick draw. You have to lift your hand too far up, to grab the grip. Either that or a lot of cops in real life wear shoulder holsters, especially if they are not in uniform and have a jacket to go over top of the shoulder holster. But this is not the quickest place to draw a gun either, especially if you have to undo the flap on the holster as well. It seems the best place to have it is the way Eastwood wore it, in his westerns, where he would were the gun on a belt but the holster would extend down to his thigh. That way, he did not have to lift his hand further up to grab it, and he can just grab it, where his hand already naturally is, by his side. Wearing the pistol across your belly on the front is a good quick way to grab it too. However, I have never seen a cop where their gun like this in real life. They always either wear it on their pants belt at the side, or on a should holster. They have ankle holsters, too, but that is way too long to draw, for what I want. So can I write it so that my character wears it either across his waist, at the front, or on his thigh , like Eastwood? Or will this come off as too silly and fake looking to the reader? Even though he is a police officer, that doesn't mean he has to abide by the fashion police too, does he?
