    They make this holster for the G36 as well as the others. I use one for my G19 and G27. Even the full size models will fit. I think it's awesome--it's my summertime carry option and I'm a jeans and t-shirt guy.

    I also have a g26, and would feel completely safe with it as long as I have a proper holster. I do not have one yet (lazy) so I do not carry it. I do carry my 1911 in a holster with a hammer strap, and feel completely safe "cocked, and locked". Dan

    Teuthis, please tell me what your fear is based on. How exactly do you expect the Glock to go off? Give me an example of your fear.

    The act of inserting anything inside the triggerguard area without conscious intent to fire the weapon is asking for a negligent discharge to occur.

    Another suggestion would be to install a heavy connector plus trigger spring, since you feel that the current trigger pull is very light.

    Thanks for sharing.

    If I am understanding you right and you are worried that something might inadvertently get in the trigger guard and cause a discharge, what is to keep said thing from knocking the "block" out and causing a discharge anyway. I agree with everyone else though a proper holster and enough trigger time with the glock will help with the accidental discharges.

    Old Padawan, my fear is Jessica Biel approaching me in a Vegas club and asking me to go home with her. That would be terrifying. But as that is statistically improbable (I don't go to Vegas any more) I don't give it much thought.

    However, my concern with Glock triggers is that I do not drill enough any more to bring me to the level of training and skill to feel confident that I would not have a AD with the trigger carrying concealed. So I want a little extra safety margin to protect myself from myself.

    I also still have a number of contacts in LE that have told me of repeated AD's with Glocks. The people I know seem to like the Glock, but they are wary of the trigger. I like it too, and I am wary too.

    If the Glock is not in a holster I believe it can be dangerous; moreso than a revolver ,or a 1911. I would rather be safe than sorry. The trigger blok gives me that security. I have been drilling with it and I like it. I want to get to the point where I always know that it is there; like a safety, and it must be disengaged before I try to fire the pistol. I believe I can reach that level of competence. If I carry the Glock concealed, it will be with the trigger blok.

    So why not get a pocket holster? That way the entire trigger and guard are covered, thus preventing a ND.

    It just seems to me that you're depending too much on this little piece of plastic to not slip or get pushed out and keep you safe so you can just grab your gun and throw the gun in your pocket; instead of doing what you're supposed to do by carrying the gun properly holstered and practicing good gun safety, like keeping your finger off the trigger.

    For clarification, they are negligent discharges. LE have them because they sometimes get sloppy with safety, as do civilians. The fact remains that the Glock is no more likely to fire without pressing the trigger than any other gun, period. It is user error that causes the problems.

    I would suggest you take a good force-on-force class using a Glock airsoft gun. Put your Saf-t-block in and go through some of the scenarios where you are attacked and put under stress. I would bet a dime to a dollar you will not get that block out every time, if ever. Gunfights are just that, fights! They do not go down the way many imagine them in their minds and anything that requires fine motor skills or conscious thought to manipulate will get you killed. My suggestion is to install the heavy 12lb NYPD trigger spring or switch to another gun, possibly an XD that has the extra grip safety. Glocks perform the best the way Gaston builds them.

    There is, for all practical purposes, no such thing as an "accidental discharge" with modern pistols like the Glock. There are, however, negligent discharges, which are almost invariably violations of Rule Three. I don't care if it's LE, military, or armed citizens - NDs are the result of incompetent gunhandling and/or reckless carry methods.

    If the Glock is not in a holster I believe it can be dangerous; more so than a revolver ,or a 1911.
    All guns are dangerous. It is the person wielding them, and the manner in which they are wielded, that makes one more dangerous than the next.

    It is universally accepted that Glocks must be carried holstered, just the same as 1911s carried in Condition One. But I, like Todd, remain puzzled as to why you want to carry your Glock without a holster. Excellent pocket holsters have been available from multiple manufacturers for decades. Not only do they keep the holstered pistol mechanically safe, they also ensure the pistol stays positioned for a fast and safe draw.

    I actually do not want to carry my model 36 without a holster. I have various holsters for it. I just do not trust it in the holsters. I.E. I do not trust myself with it in the holsters.

    I must tell you all that I am quite comfortable with the trigger blok now. Tapping it out as I draw the pistol is simply like thumbing the safety on a 1911 for me; just part of the drill. I have confidence to carry the pistol now, and keep it loaded at home. I had considered selling it, but now I want to keep it. Thanks for the most interesting responses and recommendations. They were most appreciated.
