I was running around a corner to grab the dog at my grandparents house, and the rear sights took a chunk out of the drywall on the corner of the wall. Felt really bad, had to check the sights afterwards too.
Walk softly ...
Eric good thing you were carrying a Glock if it had been a 1911 you would have caused major damage to the car.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
I haven't,but I don't move very fast due to an injury and so I'm careful when I'm moving around obstacles,one good impact can knock me off balance on my butt

I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!
Wait until some little brat is running all over the place, not paying attention to where they're going, and the little bratty turd manages to do a face plant into your gun and holster. Then have the parents ask if there is any damage to the smart phone on your hip. "Why no, my "smart phone" is just fine, how's juniors face?"
I did this a few times when I first started carrying. Like someone else said, once you carry long enough, it kind of becomes an extension of your own body. I can't remember the last time I wacked something with my gun.
I carry my gun IWB but my mag carrier OWB and fairly commonly bang it in to stuff. Most often it's my car door frame as I am getting in.

Since this seems to be an issue with some maybe I could develop some hip feelers "like curb feelers for cars". Just hook em on your belt!! Dont laugh, if someone can sell a "pet rock" I could sell these!!
The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.
