I'm Ready For Your Flames
The ClipDraw has actually been around for a very long time. It had a "name change" to ClipDraw some years ago but it was made by a different company for a LONG time before that.
It's actually a decent idea but (in my opinion) it does not allow the firearm to go down into the pants quite far enough & to me that makes the pistol feel less secure than it should feel. That's why I never liked it.
That feeling is slightly worse with a Commander than a full size/length Colt 1911.
It also allows some "side to side" shifting of the weapon that I'm not real comfortable with.
Your pistol also should have a very positive "Click On" of the thumb safety. I don't feel that it's inherently unsafe but, it's just not as good as it seems like it should be. It could probably be slightly redesigned to be better.
I am "odd man out" in that I do NOT believe that a holster needs to have the trigger guard covered in order to be a safe holster.
I don't know how that ever got started. I suspect it has its roots in competition shooting where some shooters were "forced by the clock" to move quicker than their actual shooting ability deemed that they SHOULD move. :rolleyes:
Having the trigger guard covered has probably caused as many "real life" NDs as it has ever prevented.
Most re~holstering NDs are caused by having the trigger finger inside the trigger guard when reinserting the firearm into the holster. The holster leather in the trigger guard area then pushes the trigger finger rearward causing the index finger to contact the trigger. If there is no material THERE then there is nothing to push the trigger finger back. So...the flip side of the coin is THAT YOU COULD SAY that a holster with no material near the trigger guard area is actually a SAFER holster.
If you climb a lot of trees with an "open carry" holster then you might want to have the trigger guard completely covered.
Basically, I see no "non~myth" safety need for any properly constructed holster to cover the trigger and trigger guard area of the holstered firearm.
Also, some unskilled shooters who have dumbly NDed need to put the blame ANYWHERE ELSE but where that blame really belongs.
So...they often blame their only two other options ~ either the firearm or the holster.
If you learn not to fidget with your carry firearm and you are well practiced with your draw sequence then there is no need to have the trigger area completely covered. There is also no real need to have it UNCOVERED. It's a non issue.
I also do not see any reason why a person cannot "pocket carry" any high quality firearm...IF the carry pocket stays empty...except for the firearm. The big disadvantage of just putting a firearm directly into an empty pocket is that the sharp edges of your firearm will quickly wear out your pockets. Of course if you are an idiot & you put your keys & your spare change & a carrot for your pet bunny in the same pocket as your firearm then you'll likely have some problems. Naturally I'm not suggesting that anybody do anything that they do not feel comfortable with doing. But, nobody should want to slam me for slipping a nice snag free Smith & Wesson J~frame Bodyguard into an empty coat pocket & going conveniently "on my way" since that is EXACTLY what that firearm was originally designed for. The bottom line is that some people will never completely trust themselves around firearms AND TO THEIR CREDIT they should always carry with the method that suits them and their personal mindset the best.
ALSO, children ARE a factor. I don't have any & there never are any kids digging around in my pockets. I am not loading any kids into cars or packing any kids off to school.
I am as safety conscious as anyone else & when I am in any environment when children are present I take the necessary precautions. You could say that I am actually extra cautious around kids...for instance if I am going to a kids B~day party or whatever. I empty the chamber & drop the mag of any semi~auto or completely unload any revolver NO MATTER what my method of carry is on that particular day. Kids are forever unpredictable and (to me) the words "unpredictable" and "firearm" do not ever mix.
This is just my opinion & (of course) you folks should do what you feel comfy and cozy with and stick with that method of carry.
