The above instant is one link where a leather holster contributed to a negligent discharge.
From the original photos (in this thread) it looked like the leather was fitted excessively deep around the trigger to the point it is shaped around the trigger. Counting the little lever in the trigger as a last chance to save your ass, and not a full proof safety, I warned the original poster. Per their reply, they feel the holster is ok.
The Glock safety is the trigger. Never heard of a Glock firing unless the trigger is pulled or pushed against, but they fire reliably when the trigger is pulled. Therefore a good Glock holster provides a hard layer of protection around that trigger. Let that layer of protection get soft and close, and a number of things (heck maybe even your seat belt assembly) can apply pressure to the trigger and - boom.
