If my CC instructor told us to carry with an empty chamber I think I would have looked for a different instructor. Just my opinion though.

I modify my Serpa II holsters to have a place for the STB and I have safety layers upon safety layers.

There is not one reported ND using a STB in a Glock. Removes instantly without placing a finger inside the Trigger guard.

As a Concealed Carry instructor, I recommend all my students follow owners manual instructions, and Glock and many other handguns recommend carrying with an open chamber. If a student wishes to disregard that safeguard, a STB is one alternative to bring a higher level of safety to a fully loaded Glock.

If one uses public restrooms, and you CC, your holster of choice should stay on your handgun. If you are pulling your handgun from your holster to use a restroom, you need to rethink your holster system.

My opinions are derived from many years of being a FFL, fifty years of gun use and thirty plus years of Concealed Carry, as well as being an NRA handgun instructor. I am also a Glock armorer and I NEVER alter Glocks with non factory parts, or modify the actions from factory standards. I also happen to like the NY trigger option for Glocks for many situations. No revolver I am aware of shoots with a short light trigger pull. Glocks working with a heavier trigger pull may be appropriate for some as an option.
You DO realize this thread has been dead for three years don't you?

No, Not Dead. I think it picked up right where it left off.

It's good to know that his always makes for good forum talk.

Rogue Glock shoots man dead, Witnesses argue whether it was negligent or accidental. Glock gets away during the chaos.

Another Glock negligent discharge?! All on its own!?!? Without help from the owners trigger finger?

This can only mean 1 thing....

My Glock behaved abnormally according to the internet. It fired 100 rounds with no malfunctions, no spontaneous discharges, no negligent discharges, and no accidental discharges this weekend. It also failed to explode in a kaboom like manner. Still truckin' after well over 10,000 rounds and no mishaps.

You didn't screw a bolt into the barrel and shoot shoot your Glock. You kept your bugger hook off the trigger. You maintain your gun and replace parts when they show signs of wear, instead of waiting for something to break. No wonder you didn't have a "Glock experience."
