    Personally, I wouldn't do it.

    Yeah I would go with a BIG no on that. I was just reading an article about this in Gun's and Ammo. It's just not save at all. Nice of Arko to offer up a free holster if it fits.

    Bad idea. UNsecured and with the trigger exposed you are asking for trouble. It can slide down your pants, trigger can get caught on something, lots of bad things can happen. As said earlier, a gun with an empty chamber is a false sense of security and only just another club or impact weapon in that state of unreadiness. You can get yourself a cheap holster ( Fobus, Uncle Mike or even softside nylon cheapo) as a temporary measure.

    ah... I believe they call that deed "mexican carry"

    Linky

    Mexican carry: misunderstood as to both history and application, this common practice can cause some well-documented problems | Guns Magazine | Find Articles at BNET


    good idea? IMHO.... no... in fact its a bad idea. The only safe way I can think of is empty chamber firing pin dropped. you would need to do an israeli draw to ready your pistol though.

    Like the others have said find a cheap soft holster to get you started.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I concur. There's a high propensity for an un-holstered loaded weapon, carried in-pocket, to experience an accidental discharge. I would not recommend this method of carry.

    I would never carry without a holster. Gun isn't secured, shifting location, risk of dropping loose. Just a bad idea. Patrick Sweeny just had an article in the Guns and Ammo magazine that came in today's mail on this exact same topic. Even if all you can afford is a nylon Uncle Mike's right now, it's way better than going without.

    I believe Arko was referring to the fact that with a "Clipdraw" you have a totally exposed trigger!

    A Clipdraw is one thing with a DAO pistol such as a Kel-Tec P3AT or a Ruger LCP, or even a DA revolver where you have a long 10-12 pound trigger pull.

    But a Glock is not a DAO and my Glock has a 5 pound trigger. There are also some yahoo's out there with the 2.5 pound "competition" trigger on their CCW Glocks, which is not even recommended for defensive guns. Anything snags on the trigger of most Glock's and you got a BANG!

    JMHO. YMMV

    With all due respect, I disagree.

    Unless the subject Glock has been grossly modified, it will have a trigger guard.

    Bad idea. For many reasons.

    The only way for it to be safe is for it to be not chambered. If its not chambered you might as well leave it at home because it wont do you any good if you ever need to use it.

    G26 Without Holster

    I'll echo what has been already mentioned about carrying a G26 without holster. Carrying a G26 without a holster is an accident waiting to happen. Even with the clip there is a chance of an accidental discharge.

    For the time being buy an inexpensive "Uncle Mike's" holster. They are very affordable. Later buy a leather holster made by a quality holster maker.

    Again, carrying a glock without a holster is an accidental discharge waiting to happen.
