What do you guys think of this concept? I'm not a proponent of "Mexican Carry" but I think this might be a good idea for a gun tucked underneath a car seat, in the glove box, or hidden in a messenger bag. Particularly a Glock or similar that lacks a manual safety (I see this as a possible accessory for the Glock 21SF that I'm pining after as a general house/woods/car/CC in a bag gun).

What say you guys?

    Lookswise, it appears to be made by Trojan, a trigger condom? Functionally, I dunno. Might work as advertised, with a little getting used to. I'd prefer something a bit more secure, especially in a location with a high impact potential (in a car, for instance) - I'd have to know there was a bit more than just simple friction holding things in place.

    There is a video out there someplace, something awkward about it, cannot remember exactly.

    I can see its use. Not having a manual safety or cover for the trigger is what stops me from carrying my P3AT with just a Clip Draw during the hot Florida summers when wearing only a t-shirt, shorts and sandals.

    if you are going in that direction

    SAF-T-BLOK slides behind the trigger, just poke it out with your finger

    in 20+ years of owning/carrying Glocks, I haven't seen the need.
    You going to put something similar on your DA revolvers?

    Actually Knitepoet I was thinking of doing exactly that. Since when I mention that I generally just slide my SP101 in my pocket people tend to cringe a bit.

    By the way you carry your Glock sans holster?
  • JeeperJeeper Senior Member Posts: 2,952 Senior Member
    Just don't slide it in your pocket with other stuff and you will be fine.

    My Glocks, occasionally. My similar actioned, EDC Kahr PM40.... only every time I carry it. I don't even own a holster for it

    Good enough for me sir. I generally use a holster with my Kahr but I aint afraid not to. Still I like that vanguard and may well make myself one for the Ruger and the wifes Kahr and my Kahr as well.

    I recently purchased a Kholster for my Kahr, one for the wifes and one for the Ruger. I got them mainly to put velcro on them and use them in the wifes purse or my Maxpedition Jumbo.

    As cpj so eloquently said, "Keep your booger hook off the bang switch"
    Works for me.
    If something different works better for you..... be my guest :smooch:

    I think it's just another gimmick, I've been carying Glocks since 1986 and have never had a problem in, bags, fanny packs iwb, owb, in the woods in the car, truck, and on boats, for that matter just get a trigger lock and carry the key around, my 2cnts.

    So you got no issue with one "gimic" but do have issue with another?
