Thread: Would you buy a Glock if it had a safety

  1. #41
    It should give thought that otherwise very very safety conscientous police departments employ Glocks by the crateload. It's one of THE most popular police carry guns. Now, of course lots of people could all be wrong together, true, but it should be taken into consideration by the Glock bashers...

    Besides, as somebody correctly stated, a DA revolver is not so much different from a Glock and it has also worked well for police for a long long time.

    I don't understand how anyone could argue otherwise.

    How did we become so negligent that the subject is even up for debate?

    The Glock accidental discharges are going to be the final Nail in the Lawful Concealed Carry Coffin.

    If you carry a Glock with a round in the chamber: you are a danger to yourself and others and I would really appreciate it if you would stay far away from me.
    One would have to be an idiot to accidentally fire ANY weapon!

    Do you run around with your finger on the trigger while carrying in your pocket?

    Keep you finger away from that little thingy in the trigger guard and your glock will be as safe as a brick!

    It is absurd to carry that way since the Walther was DESIGNED to safely carry with a round in the trigger!

    I you ever need that gun, you might as well not even carry it since after it is taken from your dead hands, it will end up used in a crime somewhere!

    I like the XD's system quite a bit. The Glock is just like some of the other DAO guns I have, in operation anyway, but their triggers are either longer on the pull or heavier. Its the nice light trigger pull on the Glock that I was worried could cause me to have one get touched off, not by my finger, but by some other way accidentally.

    The presence or lack thereof of a manual safety makes no difference to me. I have 4 auto pistols - 2 of them have safeties and 2 don't. I always carry with one in the chamber and hammer down if applicable.

    There was a recent post titled "I just shot myself" and it featured an XD. No matter how many safeties a firearm has if the safety "between the ears" is not used the other safeties are useless.

    As said by others --
    do what you are comfortable with
    keep your finger off the trigger
    I doubt that Glock accidental discharges are going to be the final Nail in the lawful Concealed Carry Coffin.

    I carry chambered and ready if I ever need it. Split seconds can count.

    One thing I see in this thread is that most people continue to say carry what you are comfortable with and know your gun. I think that is sound advice and I will second it. Another thing I find is that someone can come up with a reason to justify anything that want to. If you had a Glock or any other gun for that matter with a safety there is nothing that says you have to use the safety. Just leave it off all the time. Now some have said that it may accidently become engaged and cause you a problem in an emergency. That is true but usually that is the same person that says they cannot pull the trigger accidently due to their training and carefulness. Now if someone can trust themselves enough that nothing will ever accidently pull the trigger then shouldn't the same confidence apply to never having the safety applied? If you can be sure that your trigger will never be caught by your clothing then you can be sure that the safety will never be flipped on.
