Serious question - why would somebody not trust a holster? Faulty holster? The leather or neoprene could contact the trigger?
If you have a piece of shit holster that deforms too much, yeah, it could be a consideration. Which is part of the reason I use nothing but kydex now. Not to mention the retention is such that its better than leather, yet when it comes down to it, you can draw a lot faster.
Just getting ready to pull the trigger on my first kydex holster. thus far i've picked leather for every IWB/OWB/Ankle carry holster I own. Reason being is that I've always tried holstering/unholstering the firearm with the holster in my hand and never liked the feel of kydex(always felt like the retention was a little TOO tight). .
Have you used something that actually has an adjustment on it? If there's no screw for the tension of course it's gonna be too tight. Those 30 dollar fobus jobs are always slow as ass, because they just set up the holster for the lowest common denominator.
I believe that Supermoto pins his.
I did at one point, but eventually all the pins broke and sometimes that jams up the gun, so now I just cut the GS arm off.. But with my grip, sometimes I break the GS or mainspring housing if they are plastic, so I JB weld some of them in the up position
I carry condition -1, finger on trigger, slack taken up.
When i carry a 1911, ,it's cock and locked, I know there are still a trigger and grip safety protect me from discharging it. P938 could go wrong if the safety gets messed up by something.
Don't carry a 1911 at half cock. The half cock notch is a safety element. It is there so that if the hammer notch fails or the sear points jump the hammer notch, then the sear points will stop in the half cock notch, preventing the hammer from hitting the firing pin. If you are carrying on the half cock notch and the sear points jump the half cock notch, then you are shit out of luck.The 938 can be carried with a round in the chamber, hammer in the half cock position and the safety on if it makes you feel more secure. It does require 2 movements however to bring the gun to a ready to fire state. Guess that's why I prefer the glock42 for pocket carry.

I think it's pretty funny gun owners worried about shooting them selfs while carrying.This is even dumber (and possibly even slower!) than carrying without a round in the pipe.
