Try a can of compressed air. It's usually used for blowing dust out of keyboards but also works great for "de-linting" the carry gun.

I keep a can in my closet and "blow out" my EDC once a week.

I have seen barrel plugs for AR-15s. Why not for handguns?

Genius Idea...

I'd suggest ditching a lanyard snap into the bottom of your EDC pocket.

Clip the loop to the lanyard and you'll get immediate trigger guard release upon drawing.

You could also stitch the pocket the the leg to keep it from following the gun out.

I think you mean barrel caps.

We used the in the Army, especially when conducting live fire drill, just incase you slip and burry your muzzle in the ground.

There is enough air volume in a rifle barrel being compressed ahead of the bullet to "pop" the cap before the round gets there.

Oh, you mean the pant leg. Never mind.

but how would one clean out the lbs of pocket lint everyday? A tiny little shovel?

but on a serious note if you permanently attach it to your pocket you run this risk of melting it in the dryer which is where the safety pin comes in.

Ok, so, I see the trigger guard, and the loop, and I know it goes in the pocket....but, tell me this, where does the loop attach? On second thought it might be TMI.
