The clip is full, but the chamber is empty. Not worried about it going off or anything. My holster is also a composite holster with a lock and trigger guard.I'd be more worried about falling/crashing while a handgun is on my hip.
Going off isn't the concern.. a steel object attached to your hip on a vulnerable commonly hit spot is. That being said..On the bike I carry it either inside my jacket in front of the armor, in my camelback on the outside, or in the tail.

And I keep one chambered because every second might just matter.

i've read discussions about open-carry while riding a motorcycle and the consensus is this: if you're on or in a motor vehicle, it is no longer considered open carry. hope you either have a concealed pistol license or a good lawyer.Ok, today I started open carrying. I did a search and didn't see anything. If any of you open carry, what holster do you use? I'm scared mine is going to fall off while riding.
I had a crash in 07, and my glock 17 slid, banged and did whatever else while I went flying around. State troopers found it and gave it to my commander at the hospital. Had a round chambered (always) and the only damage was some scratches and the mag came out! Baby still shot straight! Quialfied with it at least 4 more times before moving to a 19. Glock has a drop safety so that's why it didn't discharge. Also,I keep my weapon shoved down my pants. So unless you go down I doubt you'll drop or lose your weapon.i wasn't talking about it going off either. Landing on it would be a bitch. Also falling and losing it. I'm sure that after a crash the last thing on your mind would be making sure that you still have your weapon. Specially if you hit your head.
well, i'm in michigan, and the "rules" are thus:I also have a glock 19. It's on a paddle holster. I guess I should talk to law enforcement about carrying on my bike. Not sure why not. It's no issue to carry in your truck. I was always told your vehicle is an extension of your home.
