    If you can't get your finger in there, it should be enough protection IMO.

    I might be a tad uncomfortable if the entire trigger guard isn't covered if I'm carrying a gun with no safety such as the Taurus TCP. Depends on if something could get in front of the trigger and fire the gun into my last good leg. ;)

    I don't see a problem, but you don't like it enough to bring it up here, which means that you probably won't ever like it.

    This is a question, not a comment. But wouldn't it take a closed bottom holster to keep something from pushing up on the end of the barrel? There is a good bit of flat area on the business end of a contemporary semi-auto. Don't really know the answer but just wondering.

    Thanks for all the comments guys, after thinking about your comments I am more concerned with the open bottom forcing the gun to come up out of the holster (exposing the trigger or falling out of holster) Its a good snug fit however. I'll give it a little more time but odds are it goes in the holster box. Main reason I got it was because I wanted a snap on OWB without paying $100+ and waiting for 6 months to get it.

    I prefer the outer surface of the holster to provide barrel/slide coverage with some smooth contour coming down over the muzzle. The idea is that, for OWB carry, you don't see such a distinct outline, and cloth slides a bit better. Not a huge issue. I'd actually never thought about the situation lordhamster mentioned, but I think it's absolutely a valid concern. I frequently feel my rig bump the seat belt thingie, and am happy to know it's hitting Kydex and not the gun slide.

    Also emphasis on what beans said: recovering to holster with normal daily wear needs to be done with complete attention to detail--and there's no hurry. Safely recovering with two layers of clothing, shirt tails and drawstrings, etc., really demands attention. The consequences of pumping a round straight down into your leg should be a sobering thought. Not an issue specific to your Galco though--it looks like a fine holster and I hope it works for you.

    sgb--that's a beautiful M&P setup you show there. Very handsome holster.

    Jnug. Well yes and no. With a compact/sub-compact pistol the extra length isn't much of a concern for forcing the pistol out of the holster. Full size pistol, mmm.. A little bit more of a concern.

    I have that holster in the holster drawer. I will not use it unless I am carrying a sub compact in it.

    The gap doesn't concern me. Accidentally goosing the pistol out of the holster while seated does.

    I too would not be too worried over the trigger exposer but I dislike metal on bare skin that has a tendency to sweat... and of course unholster the weapon.

    Well I decided to stick with my CBST mainly, and just ordered a Remora holster for work days when I have to remove the gun and keep in a lock box. The remora has good trigger coverage, full slide/muzzle coverage, and will fit the gun holstered in the lock box. Hopefully a win/win.

    whoa........that wouldn't fly with me. Strange since my buddy has the KT for his G26 and has a lot more trigger coverage.

    The trigger is not exposed, so I don't feel it is a problem...I dislike the exposed tip of the weapon.
    Probably not a problem either, but I don't like thinking my night sight would/could get knocked around when sitting, etc.OMO
