Default ok, pictures, finally of my Glock twins!



Two Berettas gone and now 2 Glocks. A week or so later and I'm still patting myself on the back for trading into these two Glocks.

Notice on the G32 the SAF-T-BLOCK that prevents an A.D.(held in place via a tiny thread like screw) The Clip Draw is on the other side of the piece. Both guns now have the Clip Draw but I need to find another SAF-T-BLOCK and i'll bed 100% armed and dangerous!

Freaking awesome .357 SIG and .45 ACP bad mothers!

with the gun loaded and the trigger forward the device slides in behind the trigger real snug, no trigger movement at all. on the other side is a little nub that when your finger goes for the trigger it pushes it out of the way letting you fire the weapon.

the flat side you see on the picture goes against your body ensuring it doesn't come out. The other side is flush with the weapon so when you bring up the gun it doesn't snag. Just like the Glock it is simplicity that makes it so great

here is the link from the makers. Order Clipdraw - Saf-T-Blok for Glocks

Interesting trigger lock. I'll have to read up on that more. Thanks for the info, DodgerBlue!

The Safe T Block isn't needed at all, save yourself the money and buy more ammo.

I've used the clip draw for many yrs and never had a problem, the trigger safety does it's job pretty well, to fire, you need to put you finger in the trigger

I don't mean to sound like a smart azz, but if you're so concerned with safety, why not buy a pistol with a manual safety?

Glocks are okay, they just are what they are. I had a model 19 that served me quite well, so I'm not a Glock basher. I've just found other pistols that serve me better.

Glocks have 3 safeties

1 Trigger Safety
2 Firing Pin Safety or Safety Plunger
3 Drop Safety

They disengage sequentially as you pull the trigger, you can actually use your gun as a hammer and it wouldn't go off unless the safeties had been tampered with.

The beauty of the Glock is that you don't need to fumble with manual safeties in the heat of an armed confrontation, just like the revolver, point and shoot.

I'm aware of that Mandy. The OP is adding a manual safety, thus my comment.

New here, longtime lurker, but just sayin': if you need to add an after-market safety device of questionable value to an already safe pistol, "dangerous" may be an apt description...............

I have been looking at a Beretta Px4 Storm. What Berettas did you trade for the Glocks and why do you think they are better than the Beretta?
