A buddy uses it. I don't necessarily like it and your trigger remains exposed.  :-/

CAUTION
Do not carry the pistol in the ready to fire condition. This is not the recommended safe-carrying method for civilian use. To minimize risk of unintentional discharge, load live ammunition into the pistol only when you are ready to shoot.

My old man has an LCP with it (actually not that brand, it was done by the NCPD armorer) and it's fantastic. For an LCP though. I dont think it would work as well as the size and weight goes up.

The trigger is not exposed… unless you wear it with a belt and no pants. ;)

I had one for a while. It does what it's designed to do. It's a matter of the right tool for the right jobs. It's great at some things, not at others.

I carry only in a holster, for me a holster is a lot more comfortable,  than having an uneven surface against the skin.

When I had a J frame I carried like that when I was living in Florida for a few months. No issues at all. I have a buddy who has been running a J and a clipdraw for at least two years. He has no issues either.

Agreed.
Never a good idea to leave the trigger exposed, even if the chamber is clear.

I've worn a clip draw on my Sig P-225 every weekday, for the past 4 years.I only use that gun while in in my office, so I'm not running, climbing, or dealing with pistol retention issues. I think it's great , far easier to "put on" than a holster rig . I have gotten into the habit of "press checking" that my hammer is down ( it's double acion for the first shot, then single action), and I am very comfortable with the safety aspect. Your mileage may vary, and it isn't for everyone...

Whah? Why is civilian use any different from noncivilain use? Always hunt with an empty firearm?

as a student of LFI(Lethal Force Istitute), if I recall correctly Mas Ayoob liked the idea for its practical purpose of a late night run to the conveience store. granted that was a bit over 15 years ago.

Besides being a method to carry your pistol, one of the main purposes of a holster is to cover the trigger so as to avoid accidental discharges. This seems to be one of the main tenets of safe carry. I'm glad to hear that some having been going with unprotected triggers for some time but I would not consider it safe.
