can you give an account of a shirt tangling in a trigger and causeing a discharge.
and another thing if this is an issue with glock than it should also be an issue with any revolver espacially hammerless.
in all fairness, maybe some people are using such examples of as excuses for ND/AD occurences. i can see this possibly happening to someone who conceals a Glock, but not a regular LEO who carries on a duty belt.

lots of people do carry Glocks with no problems and don't have any ND/AD occurences. but some do. honestly what is causing these to happen? i know, people putting their finger on the trigger. but why are they? poor training? improper holster? other things?

the Glock has in some ways gotten a bad rap for this, and hence the term, "Glock Leg" seriously, how about as responsible gun owners we try and identify the why and how it happens, and address it, and help others overcome this problem.

Now that I have actually been researching Glocks, I like them more and more with every user account i read or video i watch. I actually think Glocks are very good looking guns, and I had no idea of their reputation as a quality, reliable firearm.

Basically, I did not knows Glocks are as good as they are Did anyone else have the presumed opinion that Glocks were low quality like I did? And if you own a Glock, how would you rate your experience with it?
I've owned Smiths, Rugers of all types and they all turned into half plastic black globs!! Nothing against any other makes, but I like simple, easy and maintenance free!! And for my personal need I was convinced that a couple of Glocks would serve any need I might have!! They aren't pretty, but they work and they shoot as well as your aim!! And pleasantly I might add

These topics are just plain stupid!!! The people that dislike/hate will always dislike/hate and the people who like/love will always like/love!!! I love all my firearms I buy and I can shoot every single one of them. I don't cry about the grip angle or what ever else people cry about. I can shoot my GLOCK and then change over and shoot the 1911s with the same great accuracy.

I find it very entertaining when you tell someone that a Glock is not the end-all be-all of handguns that they go out of their minds defending it. It's as if they belong to the Church of Glock.

i agree for the most part. switching one one pistol is not that big a deal for people who shoot quite a bit or that own many different types of pistols. but this could be a problem for a new to pistols shooter or the beginning shooter.

personally, i have shot Glocks and i can adapt and shoot them quite well and accurately, but i do prefer the grip angle of the XDm over the Glock. like i have said in the past, i would also buy a Glock at the right price if one came along at the right time.

I imagine! I personally have no need to engage a target at those distances with a pistol so they are perfect for me.

It's the same thing when someone puts up an anti-religious pic.. The believers go out of their minds too. So, people should look at it in this mind frame. When someone attacks, people will defend.

I honestly only hear Glock leg brought up by people who tend to not carry a striker fired pistol.. Seems that people who carry one everyday would be better educated on the reality of this happening to a responsible gun owner.

It happens because they are not following any rules of safety. The same type of person that will shoot themselves with a Glock are the someone's likely to have a AD/ND with any firearm. They simply are not playing it safe
