  boolean WEAPON:Holster( Entity weapon )
This hook is predicted. This means that in singleplayer, it will not be called in the Client realm.


Called when weapon tries to holster.

This will only be called serverside when using Player:SelectWeapon as that function immediately switches the weapon out of prediction.
This is called twice for every holster clientside, one in Prediction and one not.

Issue Tracker: 2854
Before WEAPON:OnRemove is called, this function is only called serverside.
