    If you have a hair trigger on a Glock 26, contact the factory or a Certified Glock Armorer immediately, because something is terribly wrong.

    The factory trigger pull on a Glock is in the 5-6 pound range, which isn't exactly a "hair trigger."

    If you don't want to fire the gun, don't pull the trigger. Take the usual precautions when unholstering and re-holstering to avoid getting clothing caught up in the trigger guard. I carry my 19 in a Kydex holster with a round chambered. It's not going to go off by itself.

    Mike, it may be me and not the trigger...but the G-26 seems to have a dangerous trigger compared to the DA triggers I'm used to in my LC9 and my LCP. But I shoot the G-26 much better than either of mine but I am not sure if I need to be afraid of it????

    I carry all of my guns the same way - loaded. If you do not have a round chambered it is the same as unloaded.

    ^What he said^

    But for a properly functioning glock, it's no more dangerous to carry with one in the chamber than any other gun. When people have problems is when something gets caught in the trigger guard during holstering (loose end of a cover garment, the bungee cord toggle at the bottom of jackets, leather holster fails and folds in, etc...). Without an external hammer, there is no feedback when the trigger is being inadvertently pulled.

    Shouldn't be a problem if you holster slow and "look" the gun into the holster.

    No surprises anywhere in you post, except for the dangerous part. I recommend lots of draws and dry fires for you until you become comfortable with the platform.

    Nothing to do here about one in the pipe....more so about two different trigger pulls and safety. At least for me....

    Your questions are legitimate, and worthy of address.

    Mike, I have become very comfortable with one in the chamber on the LC9 and the slide safety on. I have also become very adapt at releasing the safety on extraction well before gun is on target. This I think is due to the size and placement of the safety on the LC9. When I carry the LCP I also have one in the chamber but the DA trigger pull on the LCP gives me a margin of safety. (at least I have come to believe this)....I seem to be very very concerned about the G-26 (why I'm not to sure).......

    perhaps lots more dry firing practice is need for me anyway..but thanks for the comments....

    I carry a Glock - I keep a round in the chamber. A good holster is key - you want the trigger to be protected. If the trigger is protected - then all you have to do is draw the gun with your finger off the trigger (do whatever needs to be done) and then take your time reholstering. The gun won't shoot unless "something" pulls the trigger. So keep the trigger safe.

    I'd suggest that you either shoot another Glock, or have another Glock shooter try your 26, or both would be best.

    A 5 lb. pull isn't what I would call a hair trigger, so the first thing I'd do is verify that your trigger is about what the average Glock has.

    If it is, then it's just a matter of you getting used to it. If it's light, then I'd definitely have a look at why it's light. If you purchased it used, maybe the previous owner did some trigger work, which might explain a lighter than normal trigger. If it was new, then you'd still want to verify that it's 'you' and not some sort of factory defect.

    Always chambered in a good holster with trigger protector.

    If there is a trigger issue then it needs fixed quick or unloaded and locked up for your and other peoples safety.

    Or if you just feel the built in trigger safety is not sufficient then you could have a SiderLock Trigger Safety by Lone Wolf installed and you wouldn't be able to pull the trigger without pressing the button
