The physics are just not there to make it go off under practically any circumstances, except maybe throwing it into a fire.
So THAT's why they call it "firing" a gun ...

While nothing man made is perfect for all practical purposes a Glock will NOT go off when dropped. It has multiple redundant design features to prevent that from occurring. They have undergone extensive testing to prove they don't.

Did you actually see this alleged AD occur or did your friend just tell you about it? No offense but it's much more likely your friend is trying to cover up his own negligence than that a Glock in "perfect working order" went off when dropped.

Yes you can and this was common practice with old single action revolvers. However it is simply unnecessary with modern double action revolvers with transfer bars or firing pin blocks. All you are accomplishing is having one less round of ammo in a handgun whose main drawback is its already limited capacity.

If you refuse to trust the proven safety features on modern guns that's your prerogative but most people will tell you it's at best a waste of time and/or capacity to do so and does nothing to make carrying a gun safer.

Always have a round in the chamber.


The BG isn't gonna say:

"Time out pal, ill wait until you chamber a round, no worries!"

Carry Condition 1 = Squawks Deadly Glock


Carry Condition 3 = Squawks Polymer Rock

Any questions?

Default cops carry with one

thats because they have it on their hip. i have mine burried in my pants or my jacket. I allways carry condition 3, i am comfortable with it. i am very fast at presenting my weapon and racking the slide. i can rack it with my pants, my shoe, my off hand, either hand. lets just say i can rack it.

i have no issue with one in the pipe. i just do it, i handle my gun too many times a day, and i figure the odds will get me over the years. they sure seem to get alot of people out there carrying with one in the pipe. ADs happen every day, hopefully not bad ones. that is no one gets hurt.

i do not with to argure about the conditoin of carry. i have taken many training classes and i am comfortable with my set up.

Umm yeah... what the heck does that mean?

Pithiness requires everyone understands what you're saying.
