Glock storage question
 
Okay I noticed after I saftey checked my glock 19 and took the magazine out I racked the slide and pulled the trigger to dry fire it to put it away in the safe and noticed the trigger does not reset unless I rack the slide again so when you store your glock away for a long period of time is it better and safer to store your glock after you pulled the trigger so its not reset or should you rack the slide and reset the trigger, then store it? Does it matter? Im new too glocks my m&p dosent do this after the click you can keep pulling the trigger but on the glock after you hear the click the trigger stays back unless you rack it so how should I have my glock when im putting it in the safe?

I do store my Glocks either way. Both ways won't hurt them.

Doesn't really matter. I pull the trigger then put the mag back in (not suggested) and lock it up.

Whatever you feel more comfortable with :p

It won't hurt your Glock.

I was going to say "In the river", but....

Doesn't the original box for the Glock require that the trigger be pulled for it to set in the box correctly?

Idk I'd have to dig it out. Which I'm not gonna do right now. You may be right.

Mine came in a foam lined carry case. You can stick it in there anyway you want.

I have the Tupperware. I know a big tab goes through the trigger guard to hold the gun in place.

The original Gen 1 Glock boxes had a post with a flag on it that fit in the trigger guard. It "required" you to press the trigger prior to storage in that box. My understanding was it was to inhibit storing the gun loaded, not because it is better to store the gun with the trigger pressed.

Bottom line, the gun can be stored either way.

When you store it throw a couple of moth balls in with it......keeps it fresh
