    Would this bother you?

    I got my kahr cm9 harwell protuck today and I like it, but I am slightly worried about this:

    Notice the back side of the trigger is exposed. This is the speed grip cut, which does make the draw easier, but I expected full trigger guard coverage.

    Here is a "comfort cut" harwell protuck for reference.

    The pic is kinda small but from what I can see that appears to be way too much trigger exposed. A minimal amount of material could get wedged in there and potentially engage the trigger while you were holstering. I think I'd seek a replacement.

    From the picture I would say no. It doesn't look like you can get a finger on the trigger and that is all I really care about. Besides, doesn't the CM9 have along double action trigger?

    I don't understand why they cut material away from the backside of the holster. What does the coverage on the front look like?

    Just "speed cut" my other one and the trigger is still 100% covered.

    On the kahr the trigger is still covered, but the space behind the trigger isn't.

    From the front it doesn't look that bad, but from the back side shot...I'd send it back. You have to be comfortable and confident in your gear. If you aren't, it's not going to work for you at all.

    I just sent them an email about this. If it had leather to just under the magazine release I would be fine with it, but that gap seems like it may be dangerous, and unnecessary.

    It's your call. I personally won't own a holster that doesn't cover the trigger guard.

    Just stitch a piece of nylon across that notch if it bothers you. Doesn't look like the trigger is exposed, just a piece of the guard. Your call though, if you don't think it's safe then ship it back, as others have said.

    Too much for my comfort, but it's your leg that will likely be on the receiving end of a discharge, so its your call.

    I would certainly be concerned with that. Let us know how the company treats you.

    That wouldn't bother me in the least if that is a right hand draw holster. My finger would be on the Kydex side, no way to hit the trigger from the back side (facing my body) regardless of how much if the guard and trigger are exposed. Just my opinion.

    My Crossbreed holster has a full back to it. I didn't consider their combat-cut a whole lot, seems to be the same theory as what you have there, I figured the full coverage would be more comfortable.
