Does this holster adequately protect trigger on Glock? (pictures inside)

    Especially given the light trigger pull and no manual safety - does this holster adequately cover it?

    hope the different angles aren't confusing.

    You obviously dont feel comfortable with it. That should answer your question

    In the pictures, and to me, that does not appear to be a quality holster, nor does it seem like one fit for a Glock. The leather seems "loose" and could easily move from blocking the trigger. I would look at something fitted for your model of glock, and something of quality. I myself am a fan of Milt Sparks holsters. I suggest to shop around and get something you like and that is comfortable for you.

    Maybe it's just me, or the camera angles, but I don't see the trigger in any of those pictures. I do see the rear of the trigger guard, but the trigger itself looks to be protected.

    If you feel comfortable with the holster then use it. If you're not comfortable, don't.

    Typical rough-out or suede IWB holster. It could be almost any quality holster makers less expensive model.

    The trigger is safely covered, so yes, it is adequately covered!

    You are good!

    Can you pull the trigger through the holster? No? Then your good.

    I don't think you should rely on the opinion of those on the errornet. If you don't feel comfortable with it, don't use it. Holsters are cheap. AD's are not.

    I can't see the trigger clearly from the pics, but if I had to make a choice on what I can see, I'd say no, I would not carry it.

    It looks plenty covered to me. Your biggest issue with this holster is re-holstering. The holster will collapse without the pistol in there making it difficult to re-holster. That's where you can trouble with an ND.

    The trigger is adequately covered, but the holster is crap otherwise.

    I use Uncle Mike's Holster sized for the .45 ACP. It covers the trigger completely and does not collapse when gun is holstered.

    Have you considered a kydex holster design? They are rigid and make reholstering easier. And the ones I've seen cover the entire trigger guard, unlike that one in your photo.

    +1 on kydex, I suspect when the holster wears a bit and relaxes the leather the vitals will be even more exposed. I picked up an Uncle Mike's Kydex today for 20 bucks just because I didn't have one. I've always thought they were butt-ugly (just like my glock that I so dearly love) so I've stayed away, but now I regret not getting a synthetic holster sooner.

    1. Despite what someone else said, I don't see the trigger at all, so unless the holster's so loose the gun flops around in it, exposing the trigger, it seems safe on that score.

    2. I don't see any reinforcement of the top of the holster to keep it open when holstering or reholstering after a draw. That's a BAD thing. The first IWB holster I bought for my Glock 19 was a bottom of the line clip-on Bianchi. The top of the holster is not reinforced, making it VERY hard to holster the gun while the holster is on your body. The holster is thin and flexible. This made me very concerned that in addition to accidentally pulling the trigger while fighting to holster, that the holster itself might get into the trigger guard and pull the trigger.

    If you want a good IWB holster and you're on a tight budget, buy a Don Hume 715M clip-on from Gunner's Alley. I've got them for all of my full sized CCW guns. They're well made, stable, easy to reholster, and very reasonably priced.

    Note: Either the XD in the first picture isn't fully seated or it's the wrong holster. The triggers of all of my guns are fully covered when in this model of holster, be it a Glock, an M1911 or an S&W revolver.

    I would worry less about holster coverage of the trigger and concentrate very hard on where your finger is ALL THE TIME when reholstering a Glock. Most cases of discharge in the holster are from fingers being in the way. The biggest problem I see with that holster is the cheeseball clip. That kind of belt attachment is a problem waiting to happen.
