Anyway this topic always comes up a few times a year.I think you all wrong. :chuckle:
Anything your sidearm can do ,my rifle does ten times better. :chuckle:

I would love to see your rifle fire 12 rounds of .40 cal before reload.  :chuckle:
So you don't think a ar15 that holds 30 rounds won't put more down range than your 40 cal,also I hold more range and accuracy. :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Well played !
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

I just received my Gunfighter Kenai chest harness, a couple questions:

With moderate tension it appears to impede full-draw breaths, like if you're really hiking or climbing hard. Have you had this experience? I am going to go field-test it today and see if it's an issue.

I notice some rattling at the buckles when moving about in different positions, as the bands tense and ease due to chest movement. Have you noticed any excess noise from the buckles and if so how did you mitigate?

Ive been putting my Blackhawk holster on the belt of my pack and it seems to work out just great for me. I carry a SnW 40 cal MnP. On the other side of my hip belt is my bear spray. Id rather be over prepared I guess..

I also have a Blackhawk paddle holster and it also fits on my pack belt and I love it, though I definitely prefer the weight balance of the chest-carry, so I hope I can get the noise issues sorted out with the Kenai.
The customer service at GunFightersInc is pretty amazing and they're going to take the holster back and fix it for me and send it back for free.
