    The general consensus is that you have to protect that trigger. The beauty of Glock is that they go bang when you hit the trigger. That's the downside too.

    Personally, there's no way I'd carry a Glock without a holster. JMHO.

    A concern of either the belly band or the clip is that there is no guard covering the trigger.

    I use a bellyband but I inserted (glued in permanent) a fitted a plastic polycarbonate guard protecting the trigger from anything that could protrude into it.

    I use a belly band with an XD, but that has a grip safety. If I didnt have that extra grip safety, I wouldnt carry with a belly band. Just my $0.02

    I occasionally carry my Glock with a belly band...as with anything, practice makes perfect...

    I was concerned at first, so I tried it out many times with an unloaded weapon...and now feel comfortable...the trigger is fully covered...re"holstering" is done carefully...

    I've carried my Glock 27 and 29 in a belly band and also with a Jentra Clip (Same idea as the ClipDraw except easier to install and use) without any problems. The one thing I did do when I carried them with the Jentra Clip was I installed the NY trigger to increase the trigger pull and therefore lower the risk of a ND.

    Simple answer, I'd say, "No!"
    I'd keep the Glock in 'holster mode'

    I probably wouldn't, even though the trigger may be covered it is only covered with a flimsy material. Something could come in contact with the trigger and then what? I know it doesn't seem plausible but you could be wrestling with grandkids, nieces, nephews, kids, spouse and the strangest things happen. Or what if you get in a scuffle with an attacker and go down and something gets the trigger. A lot of what ifs but all the more important to to figure what's the worst that could happen when it comes to guns. I wouldn't carry a chambered GLOCK without either a kydex or leather holster covering the trigger, and I wouldn't carry a pistol if I couldn't carry it chambered.

    This is a liner of stiff polycarbonate that protects the trigger as good as any.

    Have you tried seeing if the trigger can be pulled through the material? I wouldn't ever wear a gun that could be fired without being unholstered...
