Yes, I know it is TV, but...
I've watched a few episodes of Gunsmoke lately and noticed something that bothers me.
In the opening credits, Matt Dillon has his holster tied down. Using the leg strap.
However, in almost all the other scenes I see, the tie down is hanging loose and unused.
I've always wondered why?
I've rarely used that particular holster setup, but always felt that the tie down was essential.
Especially since it appears that he is using a revolver with a longer than usual barrel.
Again, yes I know it is TV...
