Do you all ever clip carry IWB? I've got one on order for my S&W snubby. This will be my first but was talking with someone that only carries this way. Just wondering your thoughts???

Nothing over the trigger = no thanks!
I don't do it, but I don't see the problem with a revolver.
I've got a set of Desantis Clip Grips but I haven't put them on my J-Frame yet. I prefer holster carry and the clip detracts from concealability. I don't think that would be a problem with the Clip-draw though.
I need something more substantial than a T-shirt between my gun and my body for all day carry, not to mention that unprotected trigger waiting to hook on something and go boom.
Some people buy them because they are somewhat inexpensive,others use them because there is no extra thickness like a holster,you can buy `really thin holsters that cover the trigger,and also give a little more retention,How do you think guns just fall on the floor when somebody bends over or crouches,the barrel may get pushed up by skin and all it takes is about 1-1.5" and your gun is now laying on the floor

the clips that have the "J" cut which goes under the belt--thus ensuring that the holster can not come off of the belt are ok.
i also like holsters that have strap/snap retention so the gun stays put all day.

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
I did with a PF9 before I traded it. I was usually using it as a BUG and I felt it defeated the purpose of having such a thin and light gun to use a holster with it, plus I already had another pistol IWB so I was running out of room. I did get one of those Kydex trigger guard covers as I did not feeel comfortable carrying with the trigger exposed.

It's pretty tough for the cylinder to rotate while "holstering" so an ND is unlikely. It's not like a Glock where anything can defeat the "safe action."

The trigger is the 'go' button. Call me fanatical, but I protect it like Fort Knox.
Single action revolvers, safeties, cylinders - whatever. I believe it's worth maintaining the trigger discipline to stay off of it until it's time to shoot.

I have a Kel Tec P11, and have the KT clip for it. I carry it SOB, when not having it ride in the Desantis Nemisis.

There are some guns the one could get by with a clip only, but I'm so used to holsters that I won't carry a firearm that's not in one.OMO

I've carried my LCP with the P3AT clip and it's not a bad carry, but it does get uncomfortable after a while. Not to mention with holsters like the Remora, I can't think of any reason to use the Clipdraw.
