    What do you think of the Garrsion grip trigger 'block'

    Quick Release Trigger Stays - Garrison Grip

    I got to looking at this for some of thous gun that can be carried with a pocket clip ie lcp and the like. From the videos it seems like they can go out fast . To me seems like a good idea if you carry pocket clip .

    Thanks

    I use them with my LCR, but really, with the weight of the trigger it really isn't needed... I just carry deep concealed with it in the appendix position

    Not a fan of anything I have to stick inside the trigger guard that isn't my finger when I'm pulling the trigger.
    I'd rather use a "TC" trigger cover as a minimal holster design.

    I tried a safety plug + clip draw years ago - I'll pass.

    Not a fan, if I was going to go that route, I'd go with something like this: The "Guardian" Kydex Trigger Guard | Aegis ArmoryAegis Armory

    I'd rather just use a proper holster. Looks like it would slow your draw and increase the potential to fumble your presentation.

    Well, at least it looks like it is ambidextrous. If you insist on carrying sans holster, this might be a good option. I can see one advantage over the kydex trigger covers that rely on para cord to pull off...at close quarters, you might not be able to get the gun up to where the cover gets pulled off...this can be popped out at any angle.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Bad bad, really bad idea.

    Something could bump it off while in your pocket. Having to fiddle around inside the trigger guard to put it in place, invites an ND. Also now you have to fiddle around with removing it after your draw and your fine motor skills are gone from the adrenaline.

    That's a lot of risk to take on, just trying to avoid using a pocket holster that protects the trigger.

    True, IF you leave the cord too long, you can always shorten the cord to the point where the guard will come off when the barrel clears your waistband (or very shortly there after), functionally it would be just aboout the same as clearing any holster.

    Except that no decent holster requires you to fidle around inside the trigger guard to "re-holster" the firearm. That's the real rub with this.

    Looks like an answer to a question no one asked.

    I really don't want to be sticking a finger inside the trigger guard to do anything but work the trigger.

    I, too, would only go with a properly fitting holster. A good holster in good condition should make it very difficult to accidentally or negligently discharge the firearm. Should I ever need my firearm, I want it at the ready as soon as possible.

    I have not tried this device, but it would appear to require much more manipulation than, say, releasing the safety on the draw stroke of a 1911, an action that is also done with the thumb and not with the trigger finger.

    This device may have its place (e.g., when with a group at a range, instructing, etc.), but, in my opinion, that place is not in the self defense carry role.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I don't even like safties on my guns. Seem a bad idea to me that I am going to have to draw my weapon and then push something out from behind my trigger before I can fire it all while my gross motor skills have just about disappeared. This is my oppenion. And what I say about oppenions, they are like buttholes everybody has them but some stink worse than others.The decision is yours.
