    My IWB holster completely covers the trigger and guard. I tried that and the gun is not fully holstered with my finger there...it still has about an inch to go. I'm ok though, all my carry guns are Sigs with hammers...both SAO and DA/SA

    Putting the trigger finger 'behind' the trigger is just asking for problems IMHO...pretty dumb!

    You really meant to post that in "Off Topic & Humor", right? I wonder how many "EXPERTS" besides Mr. Babineaux use his method?

    Well, I'm not going to break the trend here. I too think it is the dumbest thing I've seen in a long time.

    My guns are Sigs and DA/SA so I oldster with my thumb on the back of the hammer to feel for any movement. My holsters are primarily kydex and completely enclose the trigger.

    So.......... they're telling you to put your finger inside the trigger guard at a time other than when you're ready to fire?

    Breaks a fundamental rule of firearm safety. Bad idea.

    I have no problems holstering my M&P by simply keeping my finger away from the trigger and using a quality holster. Simple enough.

    Looks to me to be a solution seeking an accident.

    There are only SO many ways to holster a sidearm.......... getting silly with it is a ND waiting to happen.

    If someone were to put in the time to train , I don't see this method as being bad. However , given most common shooters probably will not ,it can be accident waiting to happen.

    Good grief. I cannot fathom how many ND's this method will create among the masses.

    We can all "see" what is about to happen with this. As they move their trigger finger down and start to curl it guess what is going to get hooked and pulled back in the process...BANG...Hot round into their own person, or through the apartment floor, or bounced off the cement and/or most likely all of the proceeding.

    However I do agree with placing the thumb on the back of the slide. Not only does it ensure the pistol is in battery but lets you feel what is going on as it seats all the way down in the holster.

    Looks too easy to accidentally put your finger in front of the trigger, esp if in a hurry. Requires fine motor skill movement...generally lacking after real-life usage.

    Also looks like you would realistically need to LOOK at the pistol when doing it. "In theory" maybe not, but in practice? Probably.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
