No, with the 1911, there's also a "grip safety" a redundant feature

which makes it necessary to be gripping the gun tightly around the

handle, with the thumb safety off, to cause it to fire.

Redundant safeties, google it, amigo.

My CZ75B can be carried cocked, and locked. But I prefer to carrying it with the safety off. The long double action is a great safety.

The bottom line. You like, get. You hate, don't. So simple. I love!

IMO glock is the best firearm a person can buy. I have owned quite a few handguns and glock is by far my favorite and it is the only brand I have now.

I've only owned one glock and before the first round was fired I'd replaced the barrel with a lone wolf match and the guiderod and spring with the EFK firedragon dual recoil SS guide rod / spring


That being said its been a extremely reliable it failed to feed the second round it ever fired but that coulda been seating adjustment of the spring and follower cause I also put a Punisher NDZ performance mag floor plate on it.

Other than that one failure . I've never had any others since ive owned it . It's light , high capacity , doesnt have to be sparkling clean to fire and feed which is important in a good combat pistol. I walked out of my LGS with my glock 20 10mm for 535.00 out the door . So the price was right.


I like it alot and it is the one gun ill never sell.

U don't need to modify a glock at all. They're an extremely reliable and accurate firearm right out of the box.

I have many glocks. From the once I have my favorite is the glock 26 in 40 smith and wesson. I absolutely love it I wouldn't trade it for any 1911 or xd. I have shot all three all three good guns but I would choose my glock. One of the best perks is the RELIABILITY. You I have put countless rounds through mine and no miss fires at all. I can disassemble and reassemble my glock in less than 30 seconds so easy to clean so in my opinion I LOVE GLOCKS!!!

Would somebody test this.

Take a glock, any model unmodified.
Put it on a stand making it sit it's handle.
Walk out 50 yards and take a 44magnum super red hawk or BFR revolver 4in bbl at least.
Shoot the glock with heavy heavy loads. Does the glock still function perfectly?
Do the same test but opposite with a 10mm glock. The largest caliber avalaible.
At 50 yards did you hit the revolver with your glock? Maybe, not likely.
Now, after the test, which gun will continue to perform reliably?
Answer. There is only one gun left
