When you holster your sidearm the model does not show in holster. Little details folks.

Walk around with character that has drop holster and handgun.
Not a huge deal or anything but I find something little like that to be a pretty huge deal as far as little visual touches and such go. Definitely not high priority, but I would enjoy it.
Realism is not really the issue imho. The whole gameplay experience depends on some degree of suspending ones disbelief, and details matters, so a properly holstered pistol goes offer a more compelling gaming experience that is based on fantasy regardless.
Even if the game is "fantasy", it is a simulator. The entire point of a simulator is to SIMULATE. If I am walking around in some sandbox survival server, it can make a big deal if my alliance with a guy is fragile and I want to kill him when he runs out of ammo. What if he has a pistol still?
I would even be happy if it was in the holster and don't come out when I use the pistol. As long as its there. Empty holster look less intimidating and cool - and less realistic of course.
Upvoted! Why have modelled holsters at all if no pistol appears inside it? I noticed DayZ SA does it very well. If they do add it, I'd like to see different holstered positions (shoulder, hip, thigh etc).
The developers seem to be looking into this so I'd like to bring a couple of points to their attention.
PLEASE add appropriate config properties to allow community developers to specify whether they'd like to show the pistol or not and, if they would like to, the location of it on the character model!
