My Kahr P380 points down the outside of my leg. I've looked before and if it were to somehow fire I'd probably get some burns from the flash, but it wouldn't likely hit me. I'm not concerned about that though, since I carry in a Desantis pocket holster that covers the entire trigger guard and the P380 is a double action, so it take a deliberate pull on the trigger to make it fire. When sitting it is generally pointed straight out from me or at and angle down to the floor. The only time I even give it a thought is when one of my kids walks in front of me when it is pointed straight out. Normaly, if they are around, I'll make sure that it is pointed downward.
