Novel concept: pistols are possibly reliable, accurate and durable. The highly trained and practiced shooter holding it adds the badass part to the equation.

ROFL. Who has been lying to you? "Like a cocked and locked 1911 with the safety off" -- ummm...yeah, give or take about 5mm of trigger movement on every shot while fighting +2.5lbs of crunchy Glock trigger, a half mile of reset, dealing with polymer frame flex and constantly shifting below-bore weight due to expended rounds. I have no idea what 1911 you shot to reach that conclusion but if I had to bet money on it, I would guess it was in a smart phone app...maybe one you saw once in a gun magazine.

If you want to deny reality so be it ( you are the prime example of the indoctrination I referred to). Just 50+ years of experience here, and you??? But there are three LEO's whom I know personally who shot themselves with Glocks while carrying off duty w/o a proper holster.

My opinion is if it doesn't have a manual safety I won't carry it. I don't care about built in safeties and GLOCK safe triggers blah blah blah. Anything could get caught inside the trigger guard and pull the trigger. I want something that won't allow me to pull that trigger until my sights are on target. My training is that my thumb flicks off the safety only after my sights are on target.

What sort of experience do you have?

I don't mean to down play you, but I know people who have been hunting their whole lives. Yet somehow I know more about firearms then they do. With just only 2 years of experience.

I mean no disrespect, but just because you have 50+ years of experience means you know more about firearms then others....

Its not about the firearms. Anybody in LE can tell you about high stress situations or just plain stupidity where somebody pulled the trigger unintentionally on a pistol without some manual safety. Guess what? Pull the trigger, gun go BANG! Simple right? If you prefer glocks that's your opinion. But don't go around bashing and belittling others opinions on here. Just makes you look assenine.

Wow is there a lot of bickering going on. Everyone has an opinion and they are usually different in some degree. There is an interesting video on you tube where a guy was killed in a store robbery because he forgot to flick the safety off. Poor training, obviously along with panic. Like it or not panic does enter into a lot of encounters and training can go out the window. I have to concede the light Glock trigger does not appear to be the best in a panic situation but manual safeties can be dangerous too. What the consensus is building to is a double action trigger at least on the first pull. One reason why some people like revolvers.
The 55 grain 5.56x45 round will tumble and lose velocity quickly and actually has less penetration than a 9mm in sheet rock walls. The link below has some interesting info on walls and pentration plus it is a fun site.
