If you don't carry chambered, it is just a club. Do get comfortable first.
If you're not living life on the edge ... you're taking up too much space !

Not chambered, then you might as well use it as a strilking tool. It must be chambered, you will fell more comfy with it as time goes on. Good luck!
Rock out with your Glock out!

Any other scenario (i.e. shirt only partially thru the trigger in various positions) will not depress the trigger.

The morale of the story - don't tuck your shirt into the glock trigger, and you should be fine. I think that anyone with an IWB holster is naturally wary of clothing in the holster, so I wouldn't give it a 2nd thought.

As far as my love handles - not an issue - Kydex holsters that cover the trigger mean no amount of chub will have any hope of getting lodged into the trigger guard & depressing the trigger. NOTHING can depress the trigger on a weapon in kydex, unless you tuck an object into the holster with the pistol, or you pull the gun out of the holster.
I once saw a post either here or on another forum where a police officer shot himself in the leg because the drawstring from his pants or windbreaker somehow found its way into this trigger-guard upon re-holstering. It is most definitely something to look out for and do EXTRA slow.

It initially takes some getting used to (coming from a 1911 with manual safety), but you do get used to it, especially if your holster has retention adjustment.

well, you could always carry it empty for a few years. Then count the number of times the trigger gets pulled inside your holster while on your person. Think of it like that. Just don't leave the gun laying around. Keep it on you in your holster or locked in a safe and you'll be good to go.

1. Carrying unchambered is pretty much useless, 2. if you are worried about your holster not protecting the gun from going off, then you should get a new holster.

I know this is blasphemy but...

If you're really uncomfortable packing a Glock with one up the spout you might want to consider trading it in on a Ruger SR9. A nice Glock-like pistol with a manual safety.

I think that you must be completely comfortable with a gun you are going to trust your life to.

As for me, My 17 & 23 ride IWB (yep, even the 17) or OWB always with chambers loaded.

Possibly get another IWB holster with a hard Kydex body that surrounds the pistol? The hard Kydex will keep you from bumping the trigger accidently when holstered. Luckily Glocks are very common so you have a LOT of good holsters to choose from.

Do not use a soft holster, the holster is your safety, find some stiff leather.
