Why I'm Trying To Intentionally Pull The Trigger While Holstering

Yep, you read that title correctly. Why am I trying to pull the trigger on my Glock 17 with my holster and any number of other items on my belt? Because, there is a silly focus on blocks of instruction devoted to "looking your gun into the holster." This is the "thing" nowadays and it is seldom worth the time to cover if you understand that it is all but impossible for anything on your person to get into your trigger guard. The exception to this rule is if you've ended up on the ground on varied terrain with leaves and branches about you. Then yes, I'd have a look before shoving my gun into the holster, most especially one that is warn in the appendix area of the anatomy. In my educated estimation, a great deal of what passes for blocks of instruction in training amounts to course curricula designed to eat up time, so that you feel like you've gotten your money's worth. Here's my two cents on it, "more shooting, less talking."
