I have seen it happen, immediately after the user tightened the holster...

That said, I have had thumb break holsters open accidentally, but I don't consider the entire idea to be dangerous...

Yes -- and no. If I had a dime for every clip or paddle holster I've seen fly downrange in the past ten years, I'd be able to buy a large latte from Starbuck's.
About 33 of them?. Medium latte $3.25 or so. Large may be 37 or so flying downrange. Too many. I hate Starbucks!

I think Pax is right. They still sell them! Its amazing. But thankfully there are many good IWB holsters around with leather straps going around the belt for positive retention.

I sometimes carry in an unsafe manner..A 5 shot in my outer garment pocket, without a holster .... So I can shoot through my pocket if need be. I also carry a PPk/s tucked in my wasteband, on safe, trigger back, loaded chamber... with no holster ... The pinkie rest on the mag keeps it in place. I guess I'm a disaster waiting to

I wont even go into some of my carry techniques from when I worked under-the-covers...
