I am giving some serious consideration to a Lanyard on my day-hike handgun.
When you read all of the bear mauling stories of the last 150 years........one common comment shows up often. "I was shaken like a rag-doll by the bear and my firearm was cast away" and/or "when the mauling stopped, and I looked around, I could not see my firearm" and/or when the mauling stopped and I could see my firearm 35 feet away, but the bear was near and I could hear it breathing".
I am wondering if one of those retractable cable thingies that janitors have 100 keys attached to, would work.
Maybe one of you YOUNG men needs to invent a retractable medium/heavy duty lanyard. Could be a good market....
