Strap predates a submachine gun hanging from a strap. Virtually any concealed weapon's holster requires it to be "strapped on", hence the term "to be strapped." Any shoulder, leg, or ankle holster is strapped on. Furthermore, nobody wears or wore their Mac 10 or Uzi hanging from a strap on their shoulder.
