Have a Desantis Nemisis and an Uncle George
I like the Uncle George better then the DeSantis, as it appears more like a wallet, and while I know that the DeSantis wasn't that noticable, it was/is more noticable then the Uncle George
I carry it in my front pocket by the way...

I'm not sure what problem the Recluse hold-the-trigger design is trying to solve, but - if you have one and you love it, you're all set.
At the minimalist end of the spectrum, add my vote for the DeSantis Nemesis. Works well with my Kel-Tec .32... hides the outline of the gun well, yet offers a ready grip when I reach for the gun. Can't beat the price.
On the higher-quality, more durable end is the Pistol Packer Premium by Wild Bill's. Spend the extra $20 and get the Premium model with the detachable flap. You don't always want or need the extra bulk that a concealment flap offers, but it's there if you need or want it. My PPP holds a shrouded-hammer J-frame snub and even with the flap in place, in Dockers or similar slacks it's not obtrusive. The holster will positively remain in your pocket until you decide to remove it, and the holster offers a good presentation of the gun's grip with the forward edge of the holster's 'pocket' falling right under your thumb, as it should (to enable you to push the holster back as you draw).
It's a custom holster, but almost always in stock for popular guns.

My feeling on safety - after carrying Recluse Solo
I think the Recluse Solo should be an extremely safe holster. I had my questions as well until I carried the holster for awhile. I feel my draw with the Recluse is safer than a conventional pocket holster. I wrote a complete review of the Recluse Solo with photos illustrating the draw. I realize the type of holster you select is a personal thing, but I sure like the Recluse.

I have been carrying a LCP in a Recluse for 4 or 5 months and its is very safe and comfortable, easy to draw, I have even thought of another one for my Kahr PM9

I just read this old thread and ordered one of these pocket holsters. It looks to me like the trigger foam block would act as a guide to steer your finger away from and easily rest above the trigger. Also I like how it looks like the gun will separate from the holster. The padded nylon one that I have now tends to come out with my pistol.
