    Holster safety issue: this is why you check fit

    Always check fit and function with an empty gun after performing a modification. This is the new GGI straight trigger. The holster was made several years prior to its release. There is zero chance a holster maker can account for any future mods made. Just like a manufacturer can't test parts compatibility with all existing and future holsters. Always verify. HK P2000 v2 (LEM) You can clearly see the amount of trigger travel, as indicated by hammer movement.

    This video was sent to GGI, and I received a very prompt response.

    Holster has been modified and all is well.

    Thanks for posting about this.

    I can't help pointing out that thumb-checking the hammer on holstering would have mitigated this problem if you hadn't been so careful. But... almost all striker fired guns wouldn't have permitted that.

    Absolutely. However, thumb-checking placed just enough pressure to flex the kydex outward, masking the issue. Inward pressure at the right point (shown at .41) would retract the hammer.

    Now imagine a SIG320 w/o manual safety with very short and light trigger in that holster.

    This advice to check with an unloaded firearm applies to any combination of pistol and new holster, in my opinion.

    Excellent heads-up, and should be *stickied* by the moderators.
