i would shoot the snot out of it first to see what needs to be changed to your liking.. but how will you know what to change if you havent tried it first?

Agree withthe above. I have multiple Glocks. I have a model 17 that I put a 3.5 lb connector with reduced reset, but that pistol is primarily a range and competition gun. My model 19 and 26 have stock triggers, night sights, extended slide releases, extended mag releases that have been sanded a bit, and I stippled the grip of my 19. Anything that I have modded on it I can make a case that it gives me more positive control, of the gun, or increases my hit potential to avoid misses and reduce liability from a miss.

Okay, time to clear a misconception time.

A Glock does have safeties!

First, the lever in the trigger can be called a safety. It does not allow the trigger to pulled to release the shot unless it is depressed.

Second, there is a firing pin block that is not released unless the trigger is pulled.

Third, yes there is a third, That space between the ears is the most important safety of all. Use it and 99.9% of Glock accidents can be avoided.

Mods can enhance a handgun or create a piece of junk.
But which mods are best?

You have to know exactly needs to be modded. And that knowledge is only obtained by shooting the snot out of it first.
One range session will not expose all areas.

Is that not the same with most firearms. As for mods I think most handguns are have acceptable levels of accuracy and reliability without mods. Some people lighten the trigger for example, I think if someone is shooting at you the trigger pull could be 20 lbs and most people wouldn't notice.

Why not just buy a gun you like in the first place and don't need to mod for your CCW?

I can understand buying a gun and customizing the heck out of it, just not for CCW. Find a gun that works in stock form. There are plenty to choose from.

My comment was toward the Glock. Other firearms may have different forms to stop sear or trigger movement.

In addition to all the above, whatever mods you make to the firearm, my advice is be able to make a compelling argument for why it was necessary in your case in order for you to be better equipped to defend your life with. Provided your Glock will be a defensive tool, of course.

A good shoot is a good shoot. It doesn't matter if you used a 15 ton acme safe hanging on a rope or a rolling pin or a glock with night sights and a good trigger. If your going to trial you have bigger issues than a customized gun.

The gun in and of itself is not going to be causation of a murder trial. People in chicago use illegal firearms to defend themselves and get charged with gun possession not murder on defensive shoots.

No one has ever been charged with murder solely because of a modified gun on a justifide defensive shoot.

However, there have been people who have negligently discharged highly and poorly modified guns injured or killed someone and the gun itself was used as evidence of depraved indifference... I think that's where the myth stems
