I looked at some gen 4's the other day. The 26 still is not but it did not have the spacer in place. The 17,21 and 22 felt just about perfect. Need to try on the 19. I have been seeing problem reports on the gen 4's with heavy trigger pull and reassembly issues. I did not try the triggers and just made sure they were clear.

The only problem with Glock and Glock imitations is that it is like carrying around a normal pistol in condition zero. One false move with the trigger and BLAM !!! there goes your leg.

Never make a false move with a trigger.

Default Condition zero ...

Actually..it depends..

First, it does have the trigger safety so one should never be un-holstering and grabbing the trigger...but I understand some my be concerned that it could catch on something (depending on the holster)

But second, no one says it has to be carried with a round chambered..if not racked, you can pull the trigger all you like, nothing is going to happen.

I know, I know, what about the split second it takes to chamber a round...but seriously folks, lets be honest...unless you are an LE or live in a REALLY REALLY bad neighborhood, do we really all need to carry locked and loaded ?

I would worry more about carrying my CZ than my Glock..why ? Because if I chamber a round, there is no safety..and since it is hammer fired, the hammer is exposed pretty much with any holster.

I look at it this way. If you need to be split second ready, then you risk with a Glock or similar. If not, you get a gun with a safety..simple ?

BTW - Just as an aside. I have a Safariland paddle holster for my Glock. It covers any chance of me accidently catching the trigger and the gun cannot be pulled away from me as it locks but is drawn EASILY with a simple move thumb catch...even the guys that run the range really like the holster

I carry a G19 most of the time. I actually carry the G19 in my pocket. I have an adequate holster that covers the trigger and keeps pocket debris out of the G19. If my pants have small pockets I just carry a smaller pistol. I use a DeSantis pocket tuk holster. The Pocket Tuk is more versatile than the Nemesis. The pocket tuk does a better job of holding the pistol in a perfect position to draw. Plus the pocket tuk has a clip to use the holster IWB or as a pocket clip. The Nemesis just looks cooler than the pocket tuk.

That split second can get you killed. I might not be here if I had not had one in the tube. What happens if you are jumped and you have to pull your weapon? How are you going to rack it when you are fighting off an aggressor?

Over the years all the pocket sized pistols I have owned didn't have a safety or the safety was so cumbersome I didn't use it. I have yet to shoot myself. I have drawn my gun in a struggle (Cobra Derringer) without it firing. Fortunately I didn't have to use the gun.

It is very seldom I have had to wash my own clothes. None of the women in my life have shot themselves. Some of them had little experience with firearms. But they had enough sense to get my pistol out of my pocket without grabbing the trigger.

My current wife has no problem getting my Glock to kill a copperhead. She has more experience with firearms than a lot of men. She isn't comfortable carrying a Glock just yet but she will get bit by the Glock bug in the next year or so.

It's good you find the gun that suits you. Glock has been my all-time favorite.
