Re: [pilotdave] What deployment method do you have on your primary sport rig?

In reply to:
On a throwout rig, one way to get a horseshoe is when the container opens prematurely with the PC still in the pouch. That can't happen with a pullout. But there are other ways to get a horseshoe that are not eliminated. I'm not sure how much I like the idea of my PC inside my open container and my handle still in place compared to what i'd get with a BOC.

True, although I've never heard of it happening (not saying it can't, simply saying I've personally never heard/read of it). Also, I'm not sure how every manufacturer secures their PUDs, but the systems I've seen would (highly likely) release when there was any kind of force that would be produce from such a malfunction.

Edit to Add:
I'm not saying BOC is bad, I do occasionally jump one (borrowed gear), and my next rig will likely be BOC just due to popularity on used gear, but once the season is done it'll be converted. :)
