    I remember the general concept of the retention strap for a Glock holster coming up in another thread, but no specific holsters that were recalled or caused problems.

    I'd lean towards calling those AD's rather than ND's, but that's just me.

    Tho not a Glocker like many - I doubt I would want to Glock and have that type of holster at all - leather only.

    I had a leather holster that was tight enough to move the slide and hammer on my 226 when re-holstering, I didn't think it was a problem, but it made me nervous. It was sort os a "cheapie" so I ended up ditching it. Guess the point is even leather can sometime do unexpected things.

    Your right there i was watching a Video where they guy was talking about this a recommend with any holster be it kydex or leather to put your thumb on back of slide to make sure it stayed in battery when you reholster..

    That's exactly what I started to do after I noticed what was happening, and now do out of habit.

    My gun won't fire or go out of battery unless the grip safety is operated, so I sometimes reholster with my weak hand on the slide, strong hand off the gun. Not a 100% solution--If I were to get something tangled in the trigger and not fix it, chances are I'd get an ND on the next draw as soon as I close on the grip safety. On the other hand, the longer I can delay an ND, the longer I've got to notice and fix the problem.

    I have the ctac for my glock 26 and it safely covers the entire trigger and is safe and comfortable. But I am wondering if a leather one from Gary might just be a bit more comfortable. Anyone tried both?

    CTAC kydex holsters are very comfortable...to me. I also press my thumb against the rear of a slide/hammer which is something I learned at Mas Ayoob's LFI I course.
