    carrying without holster

    I was wanting to know if anyone has carried without a holster. Money is tight right now and i don't have a holster for my glock 30 but i want to carry it. The other day i carried it just stuck in my belt for a little while (not chambered). It wasn't as uncomfortable as i thought it would be.

    Has anyone else done this. Is it a bad idea. And are there any tips till i get a holster.

    bad idea, especially with a glock (no safety) your shirt or something could get in the trigger guard.

    someone correct me if I'm wrong, but dont you HAVE to use a holster for CC atleast in Ohio?

    I personally think it's a bad idea. Anything can happen. You could probably get like an Uncle Mike's of something similar for like $10. That's like a coke a day for a week. That'll get you by until money loosens up a bit.

    very BAD idea. I don't know your situation exactly, but Uncle Mike's holsters are about $12. And even as hard as $12 may be able to spend for some people, it's much cheaper than having an incident with your firearm. Good luck.

    I agree. I'd NEVER do that. It's a terrible idea to carry without a proper holster

    I carried a G26 without a holster for about 3 months,..although it did have a Clipdraw attached to it. I never felt unsafe or felt the need to be extra cautious.

    The only issue was that the 26 shifted position quite frequently, which led me to purchase a holster.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I seem to remember an incident in the news of a guy walking around with a Glock in his jeans/sweatpants...

    two very bad ideas.
    Get a holster. and a gun not ready for your defence is a club.

    when you get a good holster, carry one in the pipe.

    No. Very dangerous. Especially with a Glock. I think the clip draw is an awful idea for the Glock as well, for the same reasons. A snag or a wayward poke from anything can = BOOM.

    OP

    Surely you can dig in the couch cushings and in the junk drawers for change, maybe find some cans to sell or something to afford a $10. holster. Don't take a chance with your current situation. That cheap holster would seem real cheap if God forbid something like an ND occurred because the trigger hung on your clothes or it slips through the waist band and you try to catch it.

    I have a small universal type Desantis. I'll check after work late tonight and see if it will work with the Glock, and it's yours if you want it.

    No big deal Bfunk. My friends here have been good to me, and I like to return the favor when I can. Especially for someone's safety.

    But I'll still take that beer!
