    They sell inexpensive small thin Lexan sheets at home depot.12"x12". It's easy to cut to size with tin snips. I use a cigar lighter to gently heat it up and bend it into any position you want. Tip....my first bends looks simpler to a taco shell. Once cool it gets stiff again. Do not try this with Plexiglas as it won't work. Must be polycarbonate.

    Once the shape is achieved and the gun fits snug with no snags sand it to roughen the outside surface and then glue it in with contact cement.

    The gun goes in and out just like a Kydex holster when finished and just as tuff.

    Best holster I've ever had. Comfortable.

    Designed by Shay VanVlymen of Mindset Laboratories, the Vanguard is a simple, effective concealment tool. It covers only the trigger guard of the weapon, providing a safe way to store or carry a loaded pistol in situations where a traditional holster is not practical. It comes with a length of paracord that acts as a static line to deploy the weapon. Just tie it off to a solid anchor point, and a sharp tug will cause the Vanguard to pop free and leave your weapon ready to fire. The Vanguard can also be stripped from the weapon by catching the point on something and pulling up.

    This product is ideal for use on the nightstand, under a pillow, in a purse, or tucked in your waistband.

    here we go again. you can get the safety-t block for the glock. it will block the trigger and is easy to push out when need be. i have used the clip draw on a g36 without any problems. my underwear and pants do the same thing as a holster.

    Personally I would NEVER use a Clip Draw but especially on a Glock! COVER THAT TRIGGER! Just my opinion.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I carried a Glock for years without a holster, but I have good trigger discipline when drawing. I also have carried an LCP with a Clipdraw. I usually don't nowadays simply because I wear a Crossbreed MiniTuck and use a pocket holster for the LCP. It's safer and a lot more stable.

    I run saf-t-bloks in both of my G26s. They work really well. They are no different than an external safty to me. You need to practice with them at the range, like anything else. A small plastic set creates the tension that holds it in place in the trigger guard and its adjustable.

    A protected trigger is a safe trigger. I think if you do a on clip draw, you'll see the general consensus, including an example of an ND with a clip draw device (don't remember if it was a Glock, but the principle is the same)

    Belly Band Fine. Clip draw I personally say NO WAY. Protect the trigger, as the bang switch needs to be kept snag free AND finger free until ready to fire - lest ye want to explain to the doctor why you have a hole in you that doesnt belong...

    well, answered my own question

    I tried to pull the trigger through the elastic of the belly band and it was impossible. I guess I'll be sporting my glock with belly band. Clip draw does seem silly, as well as that trigger cover with a lanyard.

    I don't want to sound like a smartass or anything, but when it comes to ND's or AD's the person wounded thought it was impossible too. Not trying to fortify my post, just don't want overconfidence to lead to a good man being hurt when the unexpected happens.

    Sky, I agree...my belly band with a glock is riding down below the waist...you would have to go through my pants and the band to get to the trigger...

    The trick is to SAFELY holster the weapon...I usually do that when I dress...and since I would not be drawing the weapon unless I need it, I'm pretty confident the trigger will not be touched...

    And if I do have to draw the weapon...I'll cross that bridge then...

    joker...I could not agree more about over confidence...which is why I am a strong proponent of "training the way I'm going to fight"...

    If I felt (and I did at first) one shread of fear about carrying my Glock with the belly band...I WOULD NOT...so I did practice, and continue to practice, with it...

    Your point is well taken...and worth repeating MANY MANY TIMES...
