    My response was for the person asking if the OP used a holster to cover or guard the trigger of a loaded pistol while in the gun safe.

Since he stores them in "(semi-)Condition 1", i.e. chambered, safety on; I was wondering if they're holstered with the triggers guarded.

    My dedicated HD gun is kept chambered, holstered, and in a 3/16" steel handgun safe. I'm not too concerned about a fire being a problem. The muzzle points to an exterior brick wall. The design with the holster prevents you from grabbing the trigger in the dark if you need to retrieve your gun.

    My CCW (G26/CBST) goes in my RSC at night and stays chambered and holstered as well. I think it is less of a risk than unholstering and unloading it on a daily basis.

    Uhhh, because eventually/hopefully the OP's going to remove it/them from the safe, right? Furthermore, s/he mentioned that other handguns are stored in the safe in Condition 1. So while (blindly?) reaching in and removing any of the said gun(s) from safe, I would think you'd want every gun to have their trigger guarded by a holster or some other device which protects the trigger from being touched.

    All my pistols in the safe are loaded. None of my pistols in the safe are in holsters. I can pick up every one of them without ever touching the trigger. It has been that way for the last three decades.

    Several of my firearms stay fully loaded...both in the safe and 'out and about'.
    Fire is another problem that I'll deal with when it happens.

    Are you saying that three decades of questionable safety habits makes it safe?

    What do you think is MORE (un)likely, your guns and safe being in a fire or your trigger(s) inadvertantly are "touched" while "out and about"?
