I don't think it subverts the intentions of IDPA, but it does stretch them a bit.
Yah that open holster wouldn't fly for IDPA, open holsters have too much drop and offset for the rules. That being said and having a couple of "speed rigs" other that mag placement I don't think they offer that much advantage holster wise, at least for me. I'm not looking for a sponsor.
All in all I do it for fun and if I can at least come in in the top 10% and beat a couple of PCC's with my SSP/ESP I'm happy.
The rules have changed it's true, like not having to move while shooting (I think that's a skill that should be developed for the D in IDPA) but everyone has the same rules in a division so I think it's fair. Is that what I'd do in a real D scenario, no, but the you do what you train being the only downside I can't see the harm. Besides from on day to the next I can't remember what I'm suppose to do anyway...
