All guns have safeties.
Some are internal and some are external (manual).

The P226 has several safeties. Most of them are internal but the decocker is the external safety, since the hammer can be released safely.

Glock guns have trigger safeties. If that little thing on the trigger is not pulled back, the gun will not fire.

CZ75`s have manual safeties. On the Pre "B"`s the trigger and hammer are blocked similar to the 1911`s, so the gun can be carried cocked.
Some models from CZ also have a decocker.

But in the end, the best and most important safeties you have, no matter what gun to own or use ist the one between your ears and your trigger finger.

Agreed. The only real safety is in the proper handling of a weapon.

The glock trigger safety might as well not even be there. It has no functional or safety value imo.

i dont see the point of it either. its no different than carrying a 1911 cocked witht he safety off and the grp safety tied down.

Isn`t the M&P Trigger similar to the Glock, only that there is sometjing like a hinge in the trigger that is the safety?

The 92 FS has both a decocker and manual safety in the same lever.
Press down to decock, flip up for safe.
Draw, flick down, engage your first target in DA mode, subsequent shot will be SA.
Most DA/SA autos either never had safeties for have droped them from prodcution but if you feel you need one on a DA/SA auto then the 92 FS would fit the bill.

It's just a something they can "claim" as a safety device, not an actual one.

Part of the glock safety system is a holster that completely covers the trigger.

When a glock is out of its holster, the most important glock safety is off.

"glock leg" it!

Then google "1911 leg" and compare. They all refer back to "glock leg".

Just ask Plaxico Burress about his dreaded "Glock leg." You'll need to wait though, he's got another 18 months to go on his double felonies.

I have a Heritage Rough Rider 22lr revolver with a safety. It is on the left side of the hammer. I hate it. It even has the first click rest for the hammer. Must have been designed by some fool lawyer in Californina.
