Captain Holt is generally regarded for his attention to detail and procedure, however the holster he wears is actually incredibly unsafe. It features a thumb-break retention strap that can interfere with drawing his revolver during a confrontation. The holster also leaves the trigger-guard of his revolver uncovered, increasing the likelihood of a negligent discharge while drawing or holstering, and making it possible for someone trying to take his revolver to fire it in the holster.
