Sorry to put my two cents worth in here but that is about the most dangerous carry I can think of and you are fortunate to date....
Firstly remember that in the small of the back you are unable to see what you are doing when reholstering; and remember that all that needs be done with the standard Glock (any model) is for the trigger to be depressed a measly 3 Lbs give or take to make whoopee. Doesn't have to be a finger, it can be a T shirt, shirt tail or whatever. Small of the back is my least favourite carry position for any kind of gun, first because I can't see on reholstering and second because my fat ass makes it a tactically depressing and slow draw. My only consolation is that if I do manage to have an AD at least it is right smack into my brain and over quickly, unless it follows the electrician/plumber divot in which case the round just winds up in the floor.
Think we had someone on here (or was it another board) who did just that only weeks ago and shot himself in the arse.
I will carry my G26 and I love it to bits these days, as well as my G30. (I use the smallest magazines first for max concealment and the larger mags on reserve right on my belt in a covered leather holder...looks like a cellphone). But I will only carry them OWB where I can see them for reholstering. And to be honest, I am now feeling comfy enough to carry one in the tube in that fashion most of the time I am carrying.
I am still wishing that Glock would sit up and pay attention and at least put a grip safety on their guns for non LEO's and those that are carrying concealed precariously.... then I would feel TOTALLY comfy about carrying my Glocks concealed pretty much anywhere. Not that it is failsafe... but at least two simultaneous errors need to take place to make whoopee.
For the record, we shoot IPSC and neither my son nor I have ever had an AD in several thousand rounds and many hours of carrying. But that does not lull us into a false sense of security. Ever vigilant boys (and girls).
One other thing I wish Glock would add as an OPTION for those that want it (I personally am undecided) and that is a MAGAZINE DISCONNECT. I have just heard too many stories of guns being swiped and used to kill their owner.... and as of late a substantial number of stories of magazines being dropped on puspose just before that happens rendering a gun, even with one in the chamber, useless until the mag is reinserted. And since the average BG is a blithering idiot... they would not have a clue that there is a mag disconnect rendering the gun useless even if loaded. I donno... maybe that's just me being an idealist?
