You guys must be shooting improperly. Work on your form and report back with explosion story

You have to operate your Glock like THIS to get it to function "correctly" and blow something off.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

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.
+1 Brother. I love my Glocks and I have that device on all of them.

I wouldn't even blame it on the features/qualities of Glocks...they're so affordable and widespread that it just makes sense that more accidents happen with them involved...bigger sample size and all.

This is a Glock forum and these matters involved Glocks, so I thought it was of interest.
Glocks are unforgiving of human error and require special care because they must be dry snapped to be field stripped.

Awhile back, humor columnist Dave Barry published a list of gun safety rules that began :
RULE One : Never load your gun.
( LOL)
I'm a big Glock fan and I have found this thread to be quite interesting.

I have seen many shooting videos and tutorials on Youtube where the shooter always puts his hand over or close to the muzzle when racking the slide or clearing a jam.Good way to blow a hole in your hand

Default holster safety

I have a 19, and it stays in the holster unless I shoot something. After shooting I remove the holster to replace the 19, then put the holster with glockback on the belt
