    Personally, I would never do it. That said, unless there was direct force to the middle of the trigger it would never go off.

    I respectfully disagree. The ClipDraw keeps the trigger in place under the belt where it cannot be accidentlly activated. Without this retention method, the pistol can move around, especially into areas where thin cloth cannot viably prevent access to the trigger. Not as good as a holster, but considerably better than no restraint.

    Since we are all "opinionating", I think carrying without a holster is foolish.

    So there you go........

    Pulling the weapon with my trigger properly indexed along the trigger guard laid it right along the clip. The gun hung up, but my finger didn't. Nice slice!

    Hope his 'bunched' shirt never clogs the trigger area...could be that 'one in a million' event...

    If he is an instructor with that attitude, he's a bad instructor who doesn't understand basic firearm safety. My gut feeling? He's a macho fool who gets off on being the big bad instructor with the gun in his waistband and I wouldn't take a course from him if he paid me and washed my car!

    Distance yourself from this idiot. You can go visit him in the hospital when he shoots himself in the thigh...or worse.

    A young holdup man in my town shot himself in his femoral artery while putting his piece away, Mexican style, while fleeing the scene of his convenience store robbery. Passers-by saved his life by pinching his artery until medics arrived. His defense attorney argued that since he was a youthful offender and he has recovered from his wounds he should be able to handle "prison boot camp". The judge disagreed and gave him 9 years in the big house.

    News : Man who shot himself during holdup receives 9 years (Montrose, CO)

    That instructor is a definite Darwin Award candidate.

    I carry in a Smart Carry holster, but that isn't quite Mexican. LOL I used to have a G27 with the clipdraw. I had this piece of plastic that snapped in behind the trigger. Once you needed to draw, a press against it with your trigger finger while drawing with finger indexed pops the plastic piece out. I forget what it was called, but I wouldn't have dared without that little plastic piece. In the end I got rid of the clipdraw though. The thing had a major rusting problem, and this was in NV where the humidity is nothing. Any oil or protection on it would soak into my pants / shirt slowly. In the end, I decided that I liked the Smart Carry or the tuck-able crossbreed IWB the best. I always carry in one of those two now, except my main carry gun has switched to the Kahr.

    I gotta tell ya I carried a glock 19 like this once and only once! and I'll explain why. I was riding with a friend about 6 years ago and was only going to her house for a bit. So I take my G19 (I took the round out of the chamber and put it in the mag)I then put the gun inside my waistband in the apendix area under my sweater(I was only doing this as my holster had not arrived yet).

    So we mosey outside and I get into her Camaro and as I sit down all the way I hear "click". It was my glocks trigger it had been tripped by the tshirt I was wearing under my sweater. I realized carrying any gun with a round chambered in this fashion was dangerous. so the moral of the story is don't carry this way it taught me a valuable lesson thats for sure.

    Can we not use the term 'Mexican', because its offensive. Can we instead say 'illegal drain on our healthcare and education systems that will be a pox on our children and grandchildren for decades to come' ?

    I love the "I've been doing it for twenty-years this way" line. I work in construction management and most of the guys that get hurt or killed doing something stupid had been "doing it that way for twenty-years". That is one of the number one things I hear when I correct safety issues with people. The best way to not get hurt is to eliminate possibilities and limit your exposure. While some things always carry some risk, if you can eliminate obvious hazards you are foolish to not do so. I just recently read a post, with pictures, of a guy that had shot himself in the leg with his .45 after cleaning it. The guy who shot himself was the guy who posted it and he said that he has been handling guns for years and he took safety for granted, accidents happen!

    Sounds like a really dumb idea to me. A pistol belongs in a holster.

    I believe the pc adjective used today is undocumented rather than illegal.
