A responsible gun owner carrying concealed would not carry a handgun with a live round and no safety in a fanny pack along with other items, then complain that something in the fanny pack tripped the safety. The trigger can also be bumped by that same something and seriously hurt some innocent bystander. A live handgun with no safety should be carried in a holster with the trigger protected. My suggestion is take this video down before somebody gets hurt.

Did we watch the same video?

at about 2:18 he did say it was in a holster, “…it was rubbing up against the back of the holster…”. I imagine a pocket holster, although he didn’t specify.

I have 2 shields. On one the safety is equally stiff on and off, the other is slightly easier putting the safety on. I put them in their holsters (which cover the safety) and pushed hard on the leather and tried to jiggle the guns to make the safety engage. Impossible. My guns don’t move in their holsters.

You said nothing about the actual mechanism that is causing the safety to engage. There needs to be some sort of contact and movement to make this happen. Seems like you would have figured out what is causing it before you condemn the gun. Maybe you need an adequate holster, or a separate pocket, or a trip to the gunsmith.
