    Exposed trigger? There's a good reason they don't make those anymore.
    We have come a long way.

    I think its a nice rig, would not mind having one just like it- wonder who made it? Maybe some one here can ID it?

    The idea of an exposed trigger holster being dangerous is the product of snowflake intellect.

    And that reason is that more and more people are stupid these days.
    That guy looks like he can handle his open trigger holster just fine.

    Well he’s cocked and locked and probably knows how to use it. Never had a problem with exposed trigger holsters but if it makes the carrier feel safer more power to them.

    Barranti and a couple of other outfits make this holster. I never heard of Rangers or other lawmen being worried about the exposed trigger guard.

    Those who have worked LE would know. I carried a 1911 in my early days of LE with a std level 2 duty rig. Doubt I fit the "snowflake" profile.
