    I don't, because I leave it alone if I'm carrying it that way and keep my fingers off of it.

    Me neither. Contrary to what a lot of the idiot libtards think, I seriously doubt if my "evil gun" is going to go off all of it's own volition! I put it in the holster and then keep my hand off of it. At night, I take it out of the holster and put it in the nightstand. No chance it is going to "go off" by it's self.

    Yeah, I saw Diehard 3, too. It doesnt work that way.

    I have two Galco Miami Classic shoulder rigs. The triggers on the weapon are covered, AND there is a backstrap holding the gun in place.

    Now you tell me, why should I be worried?

    I was just wondering because my ccw instructor told us it was not a good way to carry ones gun.
    Please Mr Bad Guy, don't do anything to warrant me to pull my gun and use it on you!

    I made my own shoulder rig (I'm a leather crafter) using a Miami Classic as my pattern, so mine is similar to yours.

    I dont worry about innocents behind me. My shoulder holsters point down.
    A wise man once said: "Bugout bag?..What's that? Is that all the junk you sidewalk commandos plan on humping when the SHTF...I'll grab a Nylon 66, a box of 22s and a poncho liner and in less than a week I will have all of your stuff and everything else that I need for the duration."

    I pocket carry a Springfield XDS-45 as a BUG. If you are setting across from me in a room, there is a condition one .45 ACP pointed at your junk.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    I guess I dont agree with your instructor. Dont get me wrong, I generally DONT use a shoulder holster.

    Mission determines equipment. There are times when its just the right holster.

    Perhaps he didnt like the draw method. I like it, and its sure good for driving situations.

    Just because somebody "teaches" a class, doesn't actually mean they know what they are talking about.

    There are arguments against a horizontal shoulder holster. The main one that would worry me is that it's very easy to sweep some part of your body or other people with the muzzle when you draw. I understand that some trainers discourage their use on the range to avoid this. Also, it's more difficult to draw quickly than IWB when standing, though I see it as a big advantage when driving.

    As for the folks behind me, it would make me slightly uncomfortable just because of the principle, and I don't use mine except around home for this reason. But realistically, it's safe. There's no way to wear a holster that can avoid pointing towards people in some circumstance. For example, go above the first floor, and even a gun IWB can be pointed towards those in the floors below. A gun that presents a real danger of going off while holstered shouldn't be carried at all.
