    Good thing we are here to foil these bad ideas.

    I agree with the others who say this doesn't seem safe. The action of putting your curled finger anywhere near the trigger doesn't sit well with me.

    CTD should not be promoting this, and neither should Natchez be promoting a CWP badge as a "must have for anyone that carries concealed"

    I just did a quick search, and it seems the internet hasn't heard of this new method of re-holstering until today.

    I have heard of dumber things than that. A guy here in Reno that had a little PPK .380 in his back pocket and whet to the movie theater. The gun in his back pocket without a holster was uncomfortable so he reaches back to adjust the PPK to a more comfortable position and shot himself in the ass. Fortunately, the noise was muffeled because he was sitting on it so not many people heard the shot so there was no panic evacuation. His case is in the court system now. I don't recall the charges but he is (was?) a CCL holder.

    Point your loaded pistol at your nether regions/femoral artery and mess with the trigger. Charles Darwin is screaming from the great beyond, "I rest my case!"

    I just unloaded the G19 and tried this - I cant even fit my finger behind the trigger and I have very small hands. I am emailing them now.

    Luckily I'm not ever in a hurry to put my pistol in it's holster - especially since it points at me while I'm doing it. I can't imagine a reason where I would need to quickly reholster my handgun as a civilian. If I am practicing transition drills, I'd be using a drop leg or belt holster where the muzzle points in a safe(r) direction. In any case....I will not be adopting this method. Thanks for mentioning the Safety Bullet though - I hadn't heard of that yet, and got a good laugh when I looked it up.

    This thread made me go practice drawing & holstering. Never saw or felt the need to put my finger behind the trigger in half hour of practice.

    That method scares the feces out of me.

    Kids - don't try this at home. Or any other place for that matter.

    Moderators,

    Please add the word "NOT" to the thread title so that it reads: New way NOT to holster your gun, straight from CTD
