    It's not only a long trigger pull, it's a rather hard pull compared to the G19. I've had some soft pocket holsters for the LCP, and feel better about the harder leather ones and those that firmly hold the gun in place. Some of those soft ones are too flimsy for me.

    The long, slightly heavy trigger is the safety - same as a revolver.
    1. Use a holster that covers the trigger.
    2. Carry NOTHING else in the gun pocket.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
    You should be just fine.

    Always in a holster, and always nothing else in there but the gun and the holster.

    As said, you want the gun to fit well down into the holster and the trigger to be well covered.

    +1 Altho I realize that many disagree & opine that a manual safety isn't necessary, but my personal preference also.

    If you carry a G19, find a good holster and pocket carry a G26, even add a NY1/2 trigger spring. Also lets you put those G19 mags to work as well.

    And remember it's not the gun that is safe, it is the user. Regardless of the safeties its keeping that trigger guard empty unless the gun is pointed at something you are ready to destroy.

    I carry my LWS 32 in a pocket holster. No issues at all. The trigger is completely covered and removal requires that my index finger push the holster away from my gun when rem.oving it from my pocket

    I carry the SIG P238 cocked and locked in an RKBA pocket holster as BUG in confidence.
