please ease my mind

i drive with my g23 loaded with one in the pipe in my center console of my T/A. what is the likelyhood of an accidental discharge over a really rough bump etc...... reason being that in all reality if im in my car close enough to get it out in time, i should have time to rack the slide. however i dont like the word "should" being in that sentence. call me an idiot or what you will, im probably thinking about this for no legitimate reason.

I've explained the "safe action" concept to many people who misunderstand "no external safety" for "I ain't buying no gun ain't got no safety!"

Slim and none.

Glocks are as safe as it gets but they are unforgiving when it comes to poor trigger discipline. If your finger is on the trigger in moments of high stress when you are not trying to make a shot you will have a very high probability of an unintended discharge.

they said it best the glock is the best of the best, riding around in your t/a with a chambered round will be absolutely fine unless your finger is on the trigger.

i was taught in the heat of the moment you dont want to have to worry about racking one back, if they have a gun with one in the chamber, you are done for

I'd probably still want to keep it in a holster to protect the trigger area.

That's what I did, I got a smaller neoprene "holster" that is intended for IWB carry. It shields the trigger and also helps prevent scuffing on the slide.
