For those new to firearms and the family…
Not just newbies!
I agree 100 percent with this post and as also stated by @Marrio and not just for newbies. I do not understand why companies make these products and people actually buy them.
I would definitely recommend those to AOC and her squad, just trying to help!
I no a dumbass that has a clip on a Glock 43 and carries in his back pocket.
Just no. For anyone. Ever.
There is an article (on Concealed Nation, I think) that tells of an officer in Utah who had a clip on his off-duty pistol. He went to his kids ball game in a neighboring town and when he went to sit down-- the gun fired. A little side note: the officer was also drinking-- he was given citations and released–
Correction-- it was Wyoming:
It looks like there is no trigger guard on any of those “holsters”. For the Newbies – and everyone looking for a new holster – the trigger has to be covered.
Hmm, does she know it is the ‘pointy end downrange’?
True, however I do have a holster from the 80s that the trigger was not covered. Do not use it much even around the house… the snap on the thumb break does not work properly.
Just pointing out, there was a time, a lot of holsters did not cover the trigger, but usually they were thumb break or secured in some fashion.
I have worn a Blackhawk OWB for my EDC for years. I wear it every day, all day when I am outside the house. It is an excellent holster. It’s trigger guard and safe hold always work for me. A little practice and it never fails.
my first holster was a Blackhawk OWB, also. The range where I took my CCW class required OWB (tho’ when I got there, most of the others had IWB). I, too, really like the Blackhawk…
I really do feel this article brings up really good points. One additional note worthy thing to discuss is about the weapon clip that attach to the firearm. The company that makes them makes a trigger guard that attaches to your belt to protect the trigger. This guard is pulled away in the draw so it can still be a minimalist design and address the issue of the exposed trigger. However, I still would not recommend this type of carry method for someone that is newer to concealed carrying.
Welcome to the family brother and god bless you @Zachariah1
A good post Danny28. I’ve been badgering my son, an ex Marine, about his newly adopted backup, a pocket Glock. He won’t listen to me, I’m non military), maybe he will take note of this post from you.
Who in their right mind invents these dangerous “holsters”? You are safer moving to Oregon and using meth (just joking).
No,never,not a chance,not gonna happen!! Might use em with my grandsons squirt guns, maybe. Who the hell comes up with this stuff?
I agree these holsters should not be used.
Well let me just say that those so called holsters are not safe at all I personally don’t know how they can be out on the market they are junk and as for that officer shame on him for even having one and second let’s say the gun did not go off let’s say when he sat down and his gun fell out and he did not realize that it came out and got in the wrong hands yikes all that said spend the money and get a good quality holster GOD bless and stay safe
The term newbie is degrading. Everybody starts with the same knowledge, skill set, and experience.
