Default Manual Safety Kit for Glock

Not going to whip a dead horse or tolerate any more "booger picking" analogies, so please leave your passionate bias to the other threads.

Does anyone have any experience with this aftermarket product? It wouldn't do me any good because it appears to be righty only.

Not for me, but what a novel idea from the looks of it. Thx for sharing.

They have been out for awhile and reportedly do what they are supposed to do. Some people abhor the idea of a safety on a DAO gun, but the sales numbers of the Ruger SR9 and the S&W M&P safety model also seem to indicate that a lot of people love the idea of a safety on their DAO guns. Personally I say to each his own.

Another option is the SiderLock safety trigger, which is ambidextrous.

Something more of this design might work better for you being left handed? I dont have any experiences with it, i like it how it is.

I have 20 years of carry bliss using Safe-T-Blok. Comes in Right & Left hand models.

http://www.amazon.com/Glock-Saf-T-Blok-Post-Description-Users/dp/B007ASNJXU/ref=pd_sim_sbs_misc_8

Does not alter the Glock in any way. Easy to use. $20.

What I like about it, is it is 100% odious to the gun owner the gun is 100% safe. Cannot fire when in place. Safety drops out of the way with your trigger finger when ready to fire. Easy to learn, adds no time to the operation of the firearm. Works with most holsters.

I carry a round in the pipe with confidence I just don't have with no external safety.

I like how you started off this thread. Glock owners can be vicious when talking about adding a safety system to their Glock. Taking away the virgin Mary story from a Catholic forum would get a person in less hot water.

Interesting. I keep my new G22 on the nightstand with the Safe-T-Blok in place, but I cannot holster my G19 with that mechanism. Wonder what it does to the feel and pull of the trigger. Would it void the warranty?

I did some Internet snooping on this product. Too many issues, but I have other handguns besides Glock and don't think it would be good practice to go pushing around the trigger in a tense situation unless I am ready to fire. Still a fan of Israeli carry.

I went with a Glock because it DIDN'T have any 'extra' buttons or levers to push to make it go bang. If you wanted a pistol with external safety levers, why not get one like that in the first place? I suppose if one were to inherit a Glock . . .

I dont think it would void your warranty, i think it just replaces the trigger. Easy enough to switch back out if you needed warranty work.

I went with the Glock 20 for several reasons, mag capacity being paramount. No other 10mm will hold as much ammo.

Add the fact it does not rust, plastic and treated metals, make it easy to care for.

Add in the dependability factor and the Glock format is a strong choice.

For me personally. A like a nonstandard external safety. I know how to quickly use the weapon, but others holding it, do not fully understand why the gun does not operate. That can only be a good thing.
I do not see my external safety as training wheels, but as a additional safety that keeps me (not talking about anyone but me) from catching Glock leg.
