concealment pistols
i saw a thread yesterday on the political forum asking about whether to chamber or not when concealed. i chamber because otherwise i don't think i would have time to react appropriately in a split-second situation without fumbling it up.

that said, most agreed with chambering. this got me thinking, i use a gun that has a grip safety and a holster that protects the trigger when carrying.

i've also seen a company that makes an iwb that doesn't protect the trigger. i think it is made by versacarry. real minimal. would you feel safe using a device like this on a gun that has a grip safety?



also which pistol manufacturers have a grip safety on them? i know springfield armory does whereas glock does not. a thumb safety, at least for me, would not work at this time - and concerned that i wouldn't have the muscle memory to do it in a split second vs. grip safety where it is automatic.

are there any gun manufacturers in a micro or sub compact model that offer this feature?

Never in a million years would I carry a gun in a "holster" that leaves the trigger exposed; regardless of grip safety or not.

S&W M&P Shield EZ (9mm/.380) has a grip safety.

I personally prefer a safety like Glock's trigger safety rather than an external safety that requires an intentional movement.

The Ruger EC9S has a thumb safety.

re: concealment pistols
Really can't believe holsters like this are even in existence. I would never use a holster like that regardless of the safety features of the weapon.

re: concealment pistols
the simplistic design and weight are appealing.

the lack of a trigger guard is not.

Can't be said enough. I like my boys and my butthole where it is.

Just purchased a performance center variant in 9mm without the grip safety. Easily was my favorite all around carry gun in 20 years.

I wasn't aware the EZ Shield was offered without a grip safety. It has one because it's hammer fired, not striker fired.

Are you sure you don't have the Standard Shield model?

If you want something simple. Raven concealment makes a minimalist holster that covers the trigger.

re: concealment pistols
I would never carry in a holster that doesn't encase the trigger in a hard and non-flexible trigger guard. I don't even really like leather holsters because there's flex in the trigger area.

There's ABSOLUTELY no way I'd carry my pistol mounted on a stick stuck in the muzzle that I then clip to my belt like that stupid contraption pictured up there.

Sorry, yes. Standard shield performance center. Not the EZ

re: concealment pistols
I've carried a glock every day since turning 21 without a holster and never had an issue. It always has one in the chamber.


(i realize I am probably in the minority.)

If said gun was a 1911 with the hammer down, sure. I guess i could convince myself it was safe with a double action gun.. Any striker gun, no way in hell.

You just stick it in your waistband or something?

Key is a good leather belt. I've been using the same one for 15 years. If I want to wear gym shorts, belt goes on first and then shorts on top. I've concealed full size Glocks all the way down to the 43.
