Rob Pincus reviews the pros and cons of the new Trigger Guard waistline “holster” for your compact handgun. He highlights the unique advantages offered by the Trigger Guard: quick presentation and non-bulky waistline storage, which are important for being prepared in everyday situations. But, some of these types of holsters do not secure your firearm in a consistent position on your belt and none of them prevent the possibility of your gun being dislodged from the trigger guard accidentally while still inside your waistline. With the Trigger Guard, because your firearm is not strapped to a solid point, it is likely to slide around or shake loose. As Rob explains, the Trigger Guard is a viable option, but you should know the strengths and weaknesses of its design before choosing it.
