    J-Frame in a JIT: Proper Trigger Coverage?

    For those with a j-frame and JIT, what do you think of the coverage over the trigger? I've seen many pictures of this pair on the forums, and I can usually see the trigger over the top of the leather. But, nobody that I can see has commented on it. Any thoughts?

    I've seen some holsters over the years that show some portion of trigger. I guess I'd be more concerned if it was a single action trigger w/ no active safety. With a J frame's fairly heavy and long double action trigger, I'd be less concerned, but really all that matters is whether you are comfortable w/ carrying it in that particular holster.

    My first issue holster for my Smith model 10 had a fully exposed trigger. With a double action revolver, it's not an issue.

    Agree with JohnOK it's what you're comfortable with in your own situation. Most people would be fine with a partially exposed trigger but if you're like me and a bit of a klutz who has caught the clip of a folding knife on door striker plates solidly more than once and will hike through the brush on the spur of the moment where limbs and an exposed trigger could cause trouble, a holster that completely covers the trigger (as well as a thumb break) makes a lot of sense.
