    Back in the day I was the treasurer of a Rod and Gun club in the East Bay above San Francisco that operated a gun range. The club members were serious gun enthusiasts. I was able to shoot all kinds of firearms thanks to their generosity. If you can find something like that in your area, it could open up a world of opportunities to you.

People shoot themselves all the time while just cleaning guns. Sad, that something as stupid as this happens, yet light trigger makes this tragic act even more likely. How about a high tense moment. You have to draw your gun and you have adrenaline running through your entire body and your finger goes on that trigger. This LIGHT trigger?
    There are so many possible mishaps with a light trigger. A target gun is one thing, but for a Pocket gun? Serioulsy, why would any one want a light trigger without a safety on such a gun? Show me the real benifit, other than you can target practice better.

    I remember the day I bought my first LCP, the original with the long hard trigger. I remarked about how long it was to my LGS friend, a retired combat Marine. he said "If the times comes for you to use that gun, that long trigger will not bother you one bit and in the meantime it is there to protect you from hurting yourself". Sounded like good advice then and still does.
    My bad,Dave. I switched topic to the LC9s pro because I have yet to feel the LCP II trigger. By the way, has anyone accidentally let off a double tap? Another product of light triggers.

    I don't know, Dave. Why do we have to try so hard to convince people that Glock-styled triggers are NOT in their best interest when it seems so obvious to us? Has Glock so brainwashed the shooting community that like the Pied Piper, folks are willing to dance to their tune until they learn a lesson the hard way? I mean the fact that someone actually voted that the LCP II's action can be locked by choice is simply astonishing to me. I put those answers in the poll and kept the poll anonymous to find out how many people would effectively admit that they don't understand how a trigger safety is supposed to work. Looks like I caught my first lemming.

    The poll does not describe methods of carry. A properly designed holster is, in my opinion, absolutely essential when carrying pistols like the Ruger LCP II, Glocks, or any other (like my S&W SW9VE) that have similar safety configurations.

    It doesn't make sense to me to carry a self-defense pistol without a round in the chamber either, Ed. But then it doesn't make sense to me to carry a round in the chamber without some mechanism in the gun itself that either (1) prevents the trigger from firing accidentally such as a manual safety or (2) makes firing accidentally extremely unlikely such as a DAO or DA/SA trigger pull. Neither of those mechanisms apply to a pistol with a Glock-styled trigger. Sure, you can make a Glock and pistols that ape Glocks safer with properly designed holsters. But that doesn't mean that those guns deserve to get a pass for not being safe enough to prevent an accidental discharge when they're drawn or reholstered . . . at least it doesn't in my reality.

    Mine too, except I change position based on what I'm going to be doing when I'm carrying it. For example, if I'm driving my car, front pocket carry doesn't work because I can't get to my LCP quickly enough. So when I'm driving, I either use back pocket carry or OWB at 1:30 in a pistol pouch. When I'm going to be out and about, however, front pocket carry is my favorite carry method by far.
