Plenty of holsters capable of retention involve no action on the part of the support hand to accomplish reholstering. Come to think of it, I can't think of one that does require it. Granted, I've see people do it, which I've always took as an indicator of either unfamiliarity or as sign that their holster is in dire need of replacement. The other indicator being fishing around to clear retention straps; I've seen instances were an unintentional discharge at that point would have had disastrous consequences.
