    The whole problem is in the practice of carring in C1. That's why I never carry this way. Remember Murphy's Law, if it can happen, it will happen . It's so easy to quickly chamber a round and carry safely.

    Trgtguy- I agree, although since my childhood this remains a touchy subject. I carried a G-19 daily for over 15 years using Uncle Mikes soft holsters, left hand type, inside the pants on my right side, no round in the chamber. With practice, I came came on target fast enough to be comfortable. There's the possibility of having to rack the slide one handed, which I practiced as well. And a million other eventualities. Choices.
    I have had two accidental discharges in my lifetime- both due to operator error. Both from not clearing the weapons after use. Good safety practice made for no injuries. Better would have made for no ad! 23 years of carry, 40,000 rounds through those side-arms, and I'm a certified amateur. Think I'll look for a thread where people discuss this- or start one if needed. Even Marvelous Marvin Hagler didn't win every fight, people make mistakes, we should talk about how to avoid them.
    Be safe, do what you're comfortable with and have fun!

    In the woods.
    That pistol was ready to go off ALL DAY.

    The trigger was partially pulled when it went into the holster and it just needed a tiny impact to finish the pull.

    You're SO lucky it didn't hurt somebody.

    Get a new holster and be more careful. One in the chamber is the way a glock is meant to be carried.

    The best safety is a careful user.

    ?????, indeed! :headscratch:

    The retention 'clip' on the Serpa holster isn't anywhere near the actual trigger so there was nothing to impact unless there was something in the holster with the gun, at the trigger. Not likely.

    How common is it to leave it holstered when taking it off?Glad no one was hurt.

    Quite common and generally held to be the safest and proper way to do it.
