Too heavy for a drop-leg holster?

The only reason for a drop leg holster is to fit the holster below your body armor, which is rarely worn for airsoft activities.

If you get a run of the mill drop holster with nylon straps to strap it to your leg, you're more likely to get shifting while running. The weight of the gun/holster will slide the smooth nylon around your leg. Plus as you crouch and stand the previously tight straps will loosen a bit as your leg muscles flex.
A drop leg holster with rubberized leg straps. These are typcially rubber strips that run the length of the leg strap and give friction between the straps and cloth of the pant leg. You can still get drop legs for a very reasonable price with this feature.
A "padded" tactical drop leg holster that is more like a single thick pad that wraps around the leg and buckles. More surface area covering the leg means more friction and it tends to be canvas instead of slick nylon. Very secure, very comfortable. A bit more expensive.
Another thing is a good system that really secures the gun, if you plan on doing a lot of running. A cover flap or at the very least a thumb release strap over the back of the gun handle to secure it.

I'm thinking because the actual platform where the gun is mounted is stiff it will stay in place better.
