I currently carry Mexican style in condition 1 and have been looking at belly bands just because i would like to have something covering my trigger(no mechanical safety on my glock). Does anyone wear these and if so what do you think of them?

There are many on this board who do, I would venture to say most have the Galco. I am considering getting the Galco belly band myself, so I can wear shorts without a belt. I hear they are fairly comfortable and you can ride high or low as the need changes.

I use one occasionaly. Its definately a step up from Mexican carry.
At least your gun is secure, and there is room for ar least another magazine.

I sometimes use the Galco bellyband when lounging in sweats or shorts without a belt. It's a handy tool. I'd recommend you discontinue the Mexican carry method.
Be reasonable. See things my way.

I use one occasionally. They are hot to wear and not all that comfortable. A good holster would protect the trigger are a lot more too.

I agree with Rocky, it is to hot to wear one most of the time here in Va. I tried one, it was uncomfortable and hot. But it did make my waist look good, kind of like a girdle.
