It takes *something* on the trigger. Unless its broken a Glock simply will not go off without the trigger safety depressed. I'm sure there are *rare* instances of clothing, the holster or something else pulling the trigger by accident. I'm convinced, however, that at least 90% of AD/ND are due to the booger hook being on the bang switch.

I'm not quite sure if you are attempting to agree or disagree with my previous post? The post you refer to certainly doesn't refute anything I said. A Glock in proper working order will not fire unless the trigger safety is depressed.

Any gun is by its nature a dangerous tool but proper handling and adherence to accepted safety practices will mitigate almost all of that danger.

Unrefuted (and unfounded) 10% must be something else.

hmmmm 10% must be something else
hmmmm something other than a booger hook. hmmmmmm

years ago I was involved in a motorcycle accident in which an elderly couple have a left hand turn in front of me and left me NO WHERE to go but directly into the passenger door. I saw that car in front of me up to about 15' and from there the brain said-"nope, you're not watching this as you hit the door". I flew over the car completely and then remember looking up at the sky as I lay on the road.
Fast forward 25 years- working construction all my life and was installing a new bridge over a river close to home. Temporary supports under the bridge girders fails/collapsed and down we go. Brain said- "nope, your not watching this either". I do remember seeing blue sky I think, but in my minds eye, I didn't see anything. Don't remember thinking oh sh^t either, but I'm sure I said or screamed more. The mind does look out for you in ways that can be to your benefit.
Those are my stories and I'm sticking with them, unfortunately!!!
OP- hope that heals up without complications. Thanks for the pic, now I'm off to bed and dream of shooting myself with one of my three Glocks. Thanks... :-("

To this day, almost fifty years later, I remember nothing of the accident. Your photograph is.gruesome, and thank God I have never seen any accident scene photos of my event.

Trauma mixes stuff up in your mind. A blessing in most cases.

You not remembering pulling the trigger is not the same as not pulling the trigger.

Could your after market changes make a Glock go off by accident, no trigger involved? I do not know, but I do know trauma alteres memories, even invents new memories.

Glad you are healing well.

This is a lesson for all reading this, do not play with trains, and do not alter the trigger of an EDC pistol. I would push that a bit more, and say, do not alter any trigger on anything. Like someone else said, not to your liking, get another factory stock gun you do like.

WAIT A MINUTE... So a aftermarket modification installed on the gun fails and you blame the Glock ..... really?

Darn unsafe Glocks, slam fired through my hand thousands of times.


No but all in good fun if you F with factory components on anything you risk a malfunction...Duh this is why everything in the world has a disclaimer now. I cannot say Glock made a bad call, did you not read and understand the manual?

When I shoot my GP 100 in DAO, my hand gets tired real fast. It is my home defense weapon and while I practice with it, I don't ever intend on shooting it extensively. It is a beast.

Also, every gun I own is just as it was the day I bought it. I don't let anyone modify any of my guns. I like them just the way they are and that's why I bought that particular gun.

I have read every post on this thread and have learned a lot. Thanks.

Hoooooly mother I just saw this thread, damn OP so glad you are ok and are all healed up. That pic was pretty disturbing. G30SF is also my alternate carry gun so this concerns me very much.

I may have missed it already, but what aftermarket mods did you install to the 30SF?

I wanna know how in the hell the gun discharged without activating the trigger spring.

So, there was obviously a round chambered.....you racked it back and it flew forward correct?

I broke this down the same way you did Danolator. I'm just having a hard time seeing how this happened. No offense, and, OP, I'm sorry for disagreeing with you.
