Would you consider a glock 23 with 1 in the pipe, CCed in a invisible holster/smart holster/etc to be safe? I know the holster covers the trigger, but does it cover it well enough? Anyone use this setup? Do you still have all of your guy parts?

The invisible holster. The kind that has a velcro belt wrapping around your waiste, and a pocket in the front holding the pistol and an extra mag.

If its the soft skinned holster made out of thin nylon then no I dont consider that safe. If it was leather or some other hard skined design that would be safer. And it must cover the trigger.

He's talking about something like a belly-band.

With it unchambered but cocked I'd jam my finger into the trigger guard throught eh holster as hard as I could and try to fire it.

If I -can- no matter how freaking hard, then no. Not with a Glock.

Your probably better off sticking to kydex holsters. You really need a pretty rigid holster. If you go to a belly band type holster, look for one with an actual holster--not a foam or cloth pouch in which to stick the weapon (that eliminates most of the cheap ones). I believe Horseshoe Leather makes one with a real holster.

make sure that the holster covers the trigger - completely! Anything short of that and you are asking for trouble. I strongly recommend holsters by Sidearmor. They fill the bill. Good shooting;)

I'm kinda fat @ 6'6" 320ish. I also need an IWB because I can't find shirts long enough to hide in owb... Think the sidearmor IWB would be a good fit? Any other suggestions? I want something that conceils almost perfectly and is very comfy. I fully plan on using an "Invisible Holster (TM)" for work carry if I switch jobs so I guess I'll leave it in con 3 for that (ugh)... I guess I now plan on getting 3; IH for work, IWB for regular 'weekend' use, OWB for open carry while hiking.

What about an IWB tuckable for work and weekends?

I found the Sidearmor IWB was one of the least comfortable IWB designs I ever tried.

The UCR from Threat Systems and the G-Code IWB have proven far more comfortable for me. If you go the G-Code route, it comes with a paddle or belt loop (your choice) attachment for the holster, and that way one holster can fill two needs--IWB and OWB. It works well.

Here is a link to an "Invisible Holster" that should let you carry your Glock with chamber loaded:

Good luck. Finding the right holster (particularly IWB) can a real pain (literally) and expensive. You might to start out with the G-Code IWB (Comfort Carry). It comes with a paddle or belt loop (your choice) attachment. That way it doesn't work as an IWB, you can can still use it as an OWB.

God... I want to get a DE so bad but I dunno how I'd explain a $1200 "Stupid gun" to my fiance.

I have a G23 and the IWB RM Holster is very safe. Give it a good look.:) I also have a Sidearmor 4th for my G23 it's good but I find the RM a much better fit.
