    Would you do this with a Glock or a revolver?

    Just curious. For whatever reason I have, and I’m not sure I know exactly what it is, I would not hesitate to carry a loaded J frame in pocket without a holster, but I would not, except under some very short term time frame, e.g. long enough to ‘clear’ a trouble spot, etc., carry a chambered Glock in a pocket without a holster.

    Thoughts?

    Safety issues aside, a good pocket holster will keep the firearm in a consistent position making drawing the firearm easier. Not to mention the holster will help to keep lint, sweat or other matter from accumulating in the firearm. Plus the benefit of softening the outline of the firearm aiding in concealment.

    I don't fell comfortable without a good holster. Besides, it might fall out and blow up the toilet you're sitting on...

    I would carry a J frame. I know many people will claim carrying a Glock with a round chambered is the same as carrying a loaded revolver, but it isn't, the Glock is half-cocked with a loaded chamber and the J frame isn't.

    I don't like to be without a holster although in the past I have carried a j-frame bareback on a few occasions. Murphy’s Law is simply too reliable!

    Any firearm without a proper holster? Invitation to accidental discharge when loaded/round chambered, in my opinion.

    well its not like you have to worry about the hammer or anything. There is nothing wrong with a glock carried in a pocket holster in the front pocket. I wouldnt want to carry a big pistol, but If I owned a glock, (I dont) nothing bad towards those who do, but a SC would pose no issue with me. JMHO

    I actually carry both.

    J-frame is always with me in a pocket holster that covers the trigger/hides the outline/keeps lint out.

    Glock is with me when I'm casual with my shirt out, and in a paddle holster that covers the trigger.

    The point here is that I feel strongly about a holster that covers the trigger. Oddly, I still don't keep a round in the chamber on the Glock, even though the J-frame obviously does. I'm just goofy that way...

    I wouldn't carry any gun in a pocket without a holster.

    As you might guess with this type of poll, I'm of two minds on this subject. I think that the OP is interested in which we feel is safer to carry in this manner.

    1.) As most here, I would rather carry either in a proper holster that covers the trigger.

    2.) I trust a GLOCK with a NY1 or NY2 trigger and its trigger safety more than I do the simple heavy trigger pull of a DA J frame.

    I think that the second is the issue at hand. If those were my only choices that is what I would trust more.

    OMO....I wouldn't do either

    me personally, I would never carry without a holster, glock, revolver, HK, safety or no safety, just me, I want a holster covering the trigger

    there are plenty of holsters and clothing options available out there to accommodate enough carry styles/options that this should never be an issue

    In the pocket? In a holster. Period.
