[QUOTE=AR10;1126420]The external safety issue is well covered by spending lunch money on an external trigger block safety. I use Safe T Blok.

Why in Gods name is your Glock covered with bright green and pink paint? Does this mean that you bring you gun to bars and clubbing when you are drinking?

For those that say "well if your finger slipped its your own damn fault!" Well no ****! But I want safeties that will prevent me from potentially ****ing up and costing me my leg or worse a life. A manual safety takes 1/4 of a second to manipulate but can save you from a lifetime of sorrow.
This is what "practical shooting competitions" are for...

I used to attend an NRA Action Pistol Competition every month out in Estacada Oregon.

Timed engagements from the holster scored on both speed and accuracy. You learn very quickly that speed with out accuracy is useless and you focus on the basics...while under stress...

This allows you to built speed safely, trains you to deactivate your safety after you clear the holster, and keep that trigger finger indexed until your sights are on target.

Training prevents ND's... Relying on manual safeties "ensures" them.

Not trying to toot my own horn but between military service, daily CCW, and volunteer RSO, I've been consistently armed for over 20 years and never ND'd a live round because I recognize that the only sure safety is the one between my ears.

There's a reason there are so many different kinds of handguns out there. Because there is no one perfect gun I've owned a few Glocks and fired many. I never have had one that I thought was a true great fit for me. But I"ll say prett ymuch the same tihng for all striker fired pistols. I know Glock and the lower bore axis, Glock has so many safeties, Cops all use them because they love them and it has nothnig to do with the clever Glock marketing dept.

They do feel better then they did. But they still are not right...for me. But like I'm told a full size 1911 is just not comfortable to carry all day I don't believe everything fanboys and haters say. I try it myself and make a choice. And that's my advice to others. There's a lot out there to choose from. And there's a reason for that.

Well, I think I'm going to throw some gas on the fire.

GLOCK vs Springfield XD. Personally, I love the XDs. The first handgun I ever shot was a XD, and I'm a decent shot with one.

I keep furniture on my Glock, just cause. I am an artist, and I get wild hairs. It has been 100% digital camo, Hello Kitty, and others. Fun to have something a little different.

As a safe queen gun, sure....nobody in their right mind buys Glock. People buy Glock & choose it as a primary carry gun because 99.9999% of the time it will come through when you need it most.

Byt the way have you ever held/carried/fired a Glock? My guess is no. You would instantly get beyond the boxy look and fall in love with the design & functionality instantly.
I totally agree with SS215. I love my Glock cause it fits in my hand comfortably and hasn't had a problem yet and I haven't met a single person yet that has used one and didnt love it. Not the safest but its the easiest and most reliable. And perfectly accurate straight out of the box.

Love my Glock
