    Barney Fife was done a disservice. I don't think he ever had his weapon accidentally discharge!!!! Of course he kept his ammo in his shirt pocket not his gun

    A question? >>> Sort of topic as discussed here.
    Not debating the reason why, but if a 1911 was carried with one in the chamber and the hammer down you went to cock the hammer (like a revolver) and as doing so the hammer slipped from your thumb would that cause the gun to fire.
    Thanks and excuse my ignorance and laziness.

    Barney shot his gun numerous times in the sherrif's office, and Andy always took the gun away from him with both of them having a pained expression on their faces.

    More like carrying a gun concealed without a holster is unsafe. This could have happened with just about any firearm. Revolvers generally don't have safeties. Does this make them any less safe than Glocks'?

    Proper handling of firearms is essential to ensure safety for all. Cutting corners can result in serious injury. Handguns should be carried in an adequate holster that protects the trigger from being snagged, which greatly minimizes the possibility of a ND.

    As with any tool, a firearm should be used, carried, and stored in a safe fashion. Years ago when I was young and stupid, I worked as a framing contractor and my partner and I, working piecework, took the guards off our power saws, to save time. Worked ok until my partner set the saw, still running, on the floor and it "took off" across his foot, nearly severing all his toes. Saw's fault? Hardly. Should we ban power saws? Nah. Should we use them correctly and safely? Duh...

    No problem - I have to admit I watch those episodes pretty often and it's a real belly laugh when Barney is showing off his skills at drawing or something and BAM!

    Quite frankly a double action revolver is much safer because of the long, heavy trigger pull. I guess the equivalent of a Glock would be carrying it cocked. Good gun handling is all well and good but I believe the Glock design is inherently dangerous. That's my opinion and I'm sure many others will disagree.

    As are all firearms, otherwise they would not usefull at all.

    Actually at the risk of being once again accused of being "hostile" towards SC LEO's, I'll point out that most SC LEO's carry the Glock 22. Must be realy unsafe. Or was the decision that SC LEO's carry Glocks made by someone else who is "hostile" towards SC LEO's.

    The Glock: a Tactical Weapon

    I will agree AND disagree - the Glock is a tactical weapon that is meant to present and shoot within 1/2 second, and that is too long in my opinion.

    It is my intent, and within my ability, to stop the aggression in 1/4 second, and the Glock affords that ability.

    If the Glock trigger is pulled, it shoots. So one must be familiar with the Glock and if the shooter is not comfortable with its particular features, they should probably choose another brand.

    PS: a carry weapon should have a hard pull (5-8 lbs) and this helps; when the adrenalin is flowing, a hard trigger will not matter
