You really have to ask???

If Glocks would employ a manual safety I'd say fine, but without I just can't recommend any Gluck be used for carry, no matter the trigger weight.

People rely entirely too much on safeties. Its foolish.

I've yet to have a safety fail me. Or hear of one. Have you? I don't mind if there was a long trigger, but Glocks do not have long triggers, they're more like SA.

I carry a block 33 with one in the chamber every day with no problems

Many do and will probably continue to, that doesn't make it acceptable to me. Never had nor will. But to each their own man.

You have a trigger safety, so whats the problem. The trigger safety is on the same as 3 1/2 pound or 4 1/2 pound.

In order for a safety to not be a danger to you in the event of a shootout you need to practice drawing the firearm, disabling the safety and then not putting your finger on the trigger until it is time to shoot. You've added an extra step to you draw time. What if the advancing bad guy only needed that extra half second to get ahold of you or better yet they don't have the extra step?
A safety is an add-on for someone who is not comfortable with their firearm, whether it be due to insufficient training, practice or an inherent flaw in the design of the gun.
I carry a glock 20 daily with a round in the chamber. The only time I have ever been even relatively close to a ng was testing the 'safeties' on a Walther p99c at the range. Yes I have seen safeties fail. Just as I've seen abs brakes cause accidents.
You should control the gun, not the other way around.
