I wore the Miami Classic with a 4 1/2” 1911 holstered, cocked and locked, for a few years back in the late 1990’s. Thought it was very comfortable, concealed well in cold weather. Never fired by itself, never had a ND when drawing/reholstering. Was warned by pistol class trainer/instructors to never wear it or a cross draw holster when attending one of their classes. Ok. Complied. My only safety/concern/reaction to being muzzled by others,(usually at gun shows), was to immediately move my head/body, out of line. Many times the careless gun handler noticed my move, and apologized. If you notice you’re looking at a muzzle, move.

I believe that it is impossible to carry a firearm in any type of holster and not be assured that you won't be pointing its muzzle at someone at some point. It then becomes a question of

#1 is the holster safe enough (retention, covering the trigger) and

#2 is the gun safe enough (no unintended discharges due to design flaws.)
#3 are YOU safe enough with your gun handling experience holstering and unholstering.

My brother in law (who does happen to be a cop) was attempting to holster his concealed carry pistol on a Sunday morning before church and shot himself in the thigh. He still swears his finger was no where close to the trigger, but I keep telling him that pistols don’t go bang unless someone pulls the trigger. :anyone:
