Kind of in a hurry here so I'll be breif.
I have a Glock 19. I noticed that when the magazine is locked in it has a slight 'wiggle' to it. I've researched this online a little and it seems that it's normal for the magazine to 'wiggle' a little.
I wear my G-19 IWB around 3:30-4:00 o'clock position. When getting in the car or sitting on the couch it feels like there is a lot of pressure being applied from the seat to the bottom of my gun.
Is this going to hurt anything on my gun? Practically sitting on my gun over and over and over day in and day out? Anyone have any issues with the magazine well over time from constant applied pressure? I don't want to loosen anything up more than it already is.
And yea, I know Glocks have been run over with cars before and kept functioning. :)

Nope you good man, glock on
Thanks guys. I won't worry about it. ;)
As others have said it's not going to hurt the gun. But there are two solutions:
- Increase the forward cant of your holster
- Get a G26
Gun control is not the answer. Gun control is the question. The answer is NO.

Been carring a G26 or G30 on any given day. I abuse the heck out of them and have had no problems for the last 4 months. When I look at the holsters its then that I see something that I believe will fail over time. Like I said I'm hard on equipment.
Like others said it will be ok...its a Glock. If you dont mind me asking what brand and material holster do you have? If any worry is to be had it would be on putting stress on the holster and mounting points, but i doubt that would be to much of a problem. just a thought

+1 for the forward cant and G26. It is what I do day in and day out. never a problem. I would not suggest changing the position or removing the weapon everytime you get in or out. Too many bad things can happen, just keep it were it is and eventually you won't even notice anything is there.

I carry a Glock 19 in that position quite often. However I'm stumped on the whole concept of "sitting on it." Maybe my body/pants/holster is different from yours, but I don't recall ever sitting on my gun when it is in the holster on my hip. Admittedly, when wearing inside the waistband, sometimes it can become tight against my body, especially when sitting, but that is all. I have switched to carrying it outside the waistband for the most part.

G19 in crossbreed supertuck IWB at 4 o'clock... snug and comfortable even when sitting in my car. The big hunk of leather on the CB ST keeps the pressure from the gun distributed nicely.
