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

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.

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.

WoW, I didn't think I would meet with so much (can't find the word to use) but all I was doing was sharing MY set up and how I like to carry. Anyone want to question the quality of my pictures next? Not enough mega pixels?

It's what is known as creative thread drift. It's also inevitable that you will get a wide range of comments. Don't be so thin skinned and don't take it to heart. It's just the internet.

...and I will never criticize someone else's photos. I have zero camera skills.

DodgerBlue, my question was a serious question, I was not intended on mocking you. I am sorry you felt that way. Perhaps others may not have been as polite as they should.

I am new here and pretty new guns in general, and I am really interested in why you like the Glocks over the Berettas. I am interested in getting one.

Well for a few reasons. I still love the Beretta PX4sc. Best gun I have ever shot. Wonderful trigger and hardly any recoil. The M9 I carried in the service was a tad large for me to really enjoy though that gun was a pleasure to shoot as well. But with the Beretta, they are almost to perfect to carry. Like a 100k car. Gotta keep it locked up and clean only to drive once and a while. Mean time the beater outside is your real go to.

But why I went to Glock was I like that it has no external safety or other buttons to mess with. Another thing is that parts are a plenty! Easy to get and really inexpensive. A lot of Glocks can easily be interchanged .40 to .357 sig, 9mm to .22 and a lot of other variants too.

I like the "mexican carry" with the clip draw and with the saf-t-blok I carry with real confidence. Plus the ladies love Glocks!

Well I appreciate your candor DodgerBlue. So I guess that Beretta I looked at sounds like a nice one then. I've been told I have expensive tastes, and that little Beretta sure felt good in my hand. It was light enough and being a 9mm I doubt it would kick too hard. I sure liked it.

And since you say that the ladies love the Glocks, I guess I'm gunna have to take a few out for a test drive

Hey VNM, what Beretta were you looking at? The PX4sc maybe? If that is the one I can guarantee you won't be sorry with it. If I were to get a 9mm again another PX4sc would be my only consideration.

I did forgot to mention (probably the biggest reason I went to Glock) was that I swore off 9mm and wanted something with some more umph. The .357 SIG and .45 Slim were both exactly what I wanted in a gun. Easily fit in hand and carry without much weight.

DB, my posts were polite and informative, sorry you took it the wrong way, I was sharing my experience with the Glock I have carried for 11 yrs, it was my first gun and the best of all that I own.

If you feel safe with the device, go ahead and use it, I just feel that it's one of those gimmicks that doesn't add something to the gun, I've modified my Glock to the max, and then returned back to original parts several times, my only rule is never modify in a permanent way that can't be reversed if later I decide to go back to OEM.

I've played with:

Barrels (3)
Clip Draw
3.5# disconnector
LaserMax
Ti Firing Pin
Ti safety Plunger
Extended Mag release
Extended Slide Stop
Plug
Night Sights
Marine Firing Pin Spring Cups

Current aftermarket parts installed are:

SS barrel
Clip Draw
3.5# disconnector
Ti safety Plunger
Plug
Night Sights

Enjoy your Glocks, and just get a barrel in .40 for the .357, it's the only part needed for the conversion.

PS your pics are great.

Now that sounds like a win-win upgrade! I'm debating about going the other way and getting the 357Sig barrel for my Glock 22 but enjoy the .40 so much I wonder if I should bother.
