    Trigger guard not completely covered: Would this bother you...

    I recently got this galco m7x matrix holster for my G19. I like the holster but the exposed gap it leaves open around the trigger guard gives me serious reservations. I know its not big enough to allow a ND per se' but I am having trouble developing confidence with this holster. Would it bother you guys? Sorry for the poor quality pic.

    I actually just noticed the back side has even more of a gap. Granted, its against the body but still.....

    The gap is virtually identical to the one on my Brommeland Max-Con Vs for the same pistol. What do you find troublesome about it?

    My other holsters all cover the whole guard, some a little ways up onto the grip. I guess its just an unfounded mental hangup to get over.

    It is not a holster I would use, however the opening is behind the trigger, anything that got in there would push the trigger the wrong way, shouldn't be a problem.

    Personally I find more issue with the exposed barrel, but that is a personal preference thing. Does not seem dangerous to me. Same reason Hiram 25 states. The only time pushing a trigger works is if the gun is facing the wrong way.

    'Concur with above observations. If you want to prove it to yourself, chamber a snap cap, put it in the holster and see if you can figure out a way to actuate the trigger.

    If you want something to worry about, I'd focus on re-holstering technique and ensuring that your shirt tail and other obstructions are free of the trigger guard (regardless of the holster).

    IMO it's not a problem.

    I can see what you mean and feel "just like you"

    I like to have that trigger guard completely covered.

    Probably be ok though

    I have used this holster a lot. No problems or lack of confidence in it with me. Hard to beat for the money. It just requires a good gun belt to prevent roll-over.

    why does the exposed barrel bother you?

    thanks, I leave the gun in the holster at all times and put the whole thing on when I carry it.

    I don't like bare metal riding next to my body, or the printing that an exposed barrel allows.

    Shouldn't be an issue as others have stated. I would be more concerned about the exposed barrel.

    I don't like exposed barrels like that especially not OWB because I'm always worried I'll sit down and something will push up on the barrel thus unholstering my pistol. For example, when I jump in my car, the thing you clip the seatbelt into can easily snag that and push up on it.

    I know that is unlikely, but I just prefer full barrel coverage.

    Don't like the holster for the same reason others have stated, however the not 110% covering the trigger guard isn't a problem. The holsters I make have a similar gap and it in no way detracts from the security of the holster.
