Only idiots and those directed by politicians would carry a loaded, fully cocked weapon with no safety on their belt.

1. Glocks got the police market because they sold at cost to PD'S. This is because politicians (IE: political appointed Chiefs who look at the bottom line not the public or first responders safety. Gee, If I could save $70/weapon/officer and put that $$$ into a police department facing budget cuts and or slashes, what would you do?

2. Glock has the civilian sales because they sold at cost to PD"s to promote to civilians that PD"s "CHOOSE" their weapon over others and makes their entire corporate profit from CIVILIANS!

3. Glocks "meet" proof cartridge pressure requirements, but why does an inordinate number kaboom as opposed to other brands?

4. Glocks have NO SAFETY's at all! A piece of plastic extending from the trigger that doesn't have to be manipulated or use more pressure IS NOT A SAFETY!

5. None of the "elite" American military have adopted Glocks dispite the the price. While the Brits have, but they are in such a tight budget, that they have had to mothball their only carrier!

6. How many unintentional discharges happen with Glocks as opposed to other major brands?

I half figured you were kidding. Hmm. Not so sure, now.

All manufacturers did and do sell at a discount to PDs.

Glock pioneered the plastik pistolen. That worthless piece of shit is now copied by everyone...

Moar Glocks = moar kaBooms. That, and most 10mm and .40 are not very tolerant of overcharged or bullet-setback in 10mm and .40.

OK, class. How many safeties does a Glock have? How many on a 1911?

You sure no elite military units use the Glock? Hint: There sure are a lot of guys SF guys that choose them... and they can afford whatever they want. They don't all agree on the model and caliber tho.

Each Negligent Discharge required... Negligence. Capiche?

None; and two, respectively.

At least, if you consider a "safety" to be a device to keep the gun from going off if you pull the trigger.

Like you say, it depends on your definition of safety. Technically each has 3 "safety" mechanisms.

The bottom line is training. It doesn't matter what design you use. Trigger and muzzle consciousness at ALL times.

I grimace when I see photos of pistols supported by a pen/dowel/rifle cartridge through the trigger guard. Trigger and muzzle consciousness at ALL times.

Something like carrying a revolver but a bit more delicate.

Seriously......

In panic mode I don't know what's worse, levers to play with or triggers to be aware of.

I elected to deal with the latter.

I carry a 36.

Been playing with the 1911 since 1976. The lever is automatic, and I don't need to be anymore aware of it than where the brake pedal is on my truck.

Ironically, with the thousands upon thousands of rounds I've fired out of both 1911's and Glocks, the only times I pulled the trigger and there was no bang was with dud primers (I've had several in both pistols).

Russian ammo is (was?) the cheapest way to practice, and every 500-1000 rds or so you're faced with the inevitable bad primer.

Hmmmm, a funny vid and then the epitome of "Ignorance is BLISS"...
When one shares his "thoughts" and does so W/OUT knowing FACTS one shows he's either ignorant, or thinks that because HE SAYS IT'S SO it must be true...
While one surely has the right to like, shoot, or own anything he wishes you clearly know nothing about the GLOCK..

Your comments remind me of this briliant statement:
Unfortunately a glock like many pistols can be fired when a round is chambered, and accidents can happen. The safest gun I know of is the HKp7 which requires a deliberate depress of the front part of the gun and a pull of the trigger while keeping the front part of the gun held depressed.

There is a great training VID direct from GLOCK but I can't seem to find it and I'm too tired to look anymore..

Watched the vid Dyno, and it changed NOTHING about what I think of the system.

All of the alleged internal "safeties" are controlled by the trigger, which in turn is protected only by that half-assed little clapper in the middle of it. The guy in the video says it protects against "lateral forces" on the trigger.

Really? Lateral forces?

:rofl:

Truth is, as I have said from the very beginning, if all of the alleged safety features are controlled by the trigger, and the trigger's only alleged safety feature is a little clapper that guards against "lateral forces", then the gun has NO safety on it at all.

I've been a 1911 guy all my life, but have said for over 25 years that the Glock is a great pistol with many fine features, and if they'd only put a thumb safety on it, I'd put away the GM and switch.

Oh I understand and respect that Mike, I knew I wouldn't change your mind and wasn't attempting to do so.. I've noted your position in the past on the 1911 and again respect that. I too like the 1911 (and BHP for that matter) quite a bit and while I don't think the GLOCK is the best in the world I do appreciate it's design, accuracy, and dependability.

That being said IMHO the mostest bestest SAFETY is the one inside our heads and next to that is the trigger finger.. NO (correctly functioning) pistol will fire unless the trigger is pulled.
I do wish I could show you the GLOCK vid though as I think it more clearly defines and explains the GLOCKs function and safeties. One key component of that being that the STRIKER is cocked when the TRIGGER is pulled which I think many peeps don't realize?

My post was more directed at abbynormal as he posted several lines of complete BS.. :tongue:

I get all that, Dyno. I don't have problems keeping my finger out. But when I carry, it's usually an IWB holster, and holstering a pistol in that kind of rig with NO real safety to lock the trigger scares the hell outta me. All it would take is a piece of shirt tail as it goes home, and I'll get a dose of Austrian Liposuction.

I want a gun that has a lock against inadvertent trigger pressure. And I'm not talking "lateral pressure". :)

True enough there, I usually carry my SIG-220, or one of the CZ's, haven't shot the newest 1911 Build enough to feel 100% W/it just yet but it has settled into a very comfortable reliable rhythm after a couple initial hick-ups post build..
That being said I'll start putting my G-21 into the rotation but it won't be an IWB holster. As much as I wish it possible I'm afraid my "physique" won't allow it at present.. :wink:

You haters are as lame as they come. If you don't want it to go bang, don't pull the trigger. :tongue:

One thing we know for certain. If you don't pull the trigger, the weapon will not fire. It's been proven in a multi-million dollar law-suit against Gaston Glock. Glock won.

Double-action revolvers have no safety at all and I don't hear you crying about them.

We still talkin' about this?

Anybody, anyone at all had their mind changed about the safety or efficacy of the "Glock Safety Trigger"?

At this point I will gladly stipulate that a Glock is just as safe as a 1911. If you cock the 1911, pin the grip safety, and place the thumb safety in the 'fire' position.

I'll put the "lateral" sensitivity of the 1911 trigger on par with any Glock.

Seriously, if you have both guns with a five pound trigger, would any of you just go slap that 1911 in the condition I described in an IWB holster?

While I find it amusing to listen to banter regarding Glock's non safety/safety, it really amazes me that an army of lawyers have not jumped on the litigation express that features a pistol that you can't carry in your belt, in your pocket or in a leather holster out of fear of putting a ventilation canal thru the soft tissues of your leg. Is the legal profession being sequestered?

While I find it amusing to listen to banter regarding Glock's non safety/safety, it really amazes me that an army of lawyers have not jumped on the litigation express that features a pistol that you can't carry in your belt, in your pocket or in a leather holster out of fear of putting a ventilation canal thru the soft tissues of your leg. Is the legal profession being sequestered?

Be careful what you "wish" for... :)

If Glocks were better then 1911's, John Moses Browning would have invented it.

'Nuff said!

The text of "The Emotional Scars of Hobo Rape" at the bottom of the start screen make me scared to watch this video.

Or maybe that's a punk band I saw play in lower Manhattan once. :confused:

The FN FNS has a nice ambidextrous safety for those of you worried about blowing your ass cheek off.

It's not the lack of safety that worries me. It's the terrible trigger that Glocks have. Reminds me of a toy gun I had as a kid, the one that shoots discs. And that trigger sucked too!

Before everyone says they can be modified with aftermarket parts, I have felt those too. I'm surrounded by Glock fanantics at work that have done everything you can to a Glock, including going full auto! I didn't care for the aftermarket triggers either.

I've almost bought a Glock a few times but as soon as I feel the trigger, I say "F*ck that!" and stay with my 1911's. But look on the bright side, that gives you Glock guys more Glocks to buy! They won't be sitting in my safe. :biggrin:

Damn straight. You are a man of taste and discernment.

The notion that "4 out 5 cops carry a Glock" is sufficient reason for me to choose something else. Anything. Else.

Plastic is for sex toys and sandwich bags, not gun frames. :devil:

Funny, been to dozens of three gun matches and seen literally hundreds of Glock 34's on the line and, amazingly, have yet to see a "kaboom" much less anyone shoot themselves in the face. Maybe it's just you...:rolleyes:

I want a gun that has a lock against inadvertent trigger pressure. And I'm not talking "lateral pressure".

I just watch what the hell I'm doing and never run on autopilot when I'm handling a gun. Worked well so far.

See all that shirt-tail bunching in the pic? I can't see that in a kidney carry. What I worry about is some of that getting between the trigger and the holster as the gun goes home.

And that, as Forrest said, is all I have to say about that.

What is real funny is that the only ND's that happen with pistols during training classes at the range I go to are 1911 "operators".

Its scary when I see someone pull a dinosaur out and try and shoot with it. :tongue:

(Yes I own 1911's)

Late to the party, but I believe a safety is: a device that may or may not render your firearm unfireable. At least that is how I think of them.

The rest is covered here:
