    So I have a glock 22 coming to me in October and it has a ctc laser on it. What I'm looking for is any advise on holsters for it so I can carry concealed and keep the ctc on it. I'm also looking to do a few upgrades to make the gun not only look better but also to make it function better in cqb. Anyone got some advise?

    is it the one in the recoil spring or one that attaches to the accessory rail? I would not have a accessory on my ccw if I could in my state its one more thing that can go wrong or get stuck just food for thought.:D

    I was thinking of things like extended mag catch and slide lock. Things like that. My ctc is the one attached on the back strap of the mag well

    Has anyone heard about the external safety that just came out for the glock. It looks like any other external safety in that it a push down lever that will disengage the safety and then the gun operates like normal. How do u install and how long will it take

    Clocks are pretty darn safe man. That trigger has 3 safes built-in I think.

    I would say shoot the darn thing before making changes! You may like it the way it comes from Glock.

    Which generation 22? I'm happy with my older one and the only upgrade is night sights. If buying new, I'd skip the Gen 3 and get the 4.

    I had a glock 21 gen3 but sold it and now I have the 22 gen3 coming. I love glocks alot. I'm just trying to make this glock my own and upgrade a few things off them.

    It takes a deliberate pull of the trigger to fire the round. Not a problem if it's holstered. I keep mine with 16 rounds at the ready.

    Right, a manual safety. I was just mentioning the glocks built-in safetys in case he didn't know.

    EDIT: sorry Chevy, I understand what you meant about not trusting the safety now

    Glock doesnt put external safeties on their firearms because they dont need them... U wouldnt catch me installing one on mine. I carried my glock 31 for many years and not once did i ever think,"hmmm i think tht i need a 4th safety feature".. My opinion.. Leave it alone and just love it for what it is....a Glock

    Oh trust me I wasn't think about putting that on my gun I was just wondering if anyone heard about it and if it works. I know that the glock has three safeties already.

    The only things I did to my carry gun, which is a Glock 26, was put on night sights(I went with XS 24/7), extended slide lock, pierce mag extension and titanium safety plunger. The two last and most important things were a good holster (crossbreed supertuck), and tons and tons of ammo. On a carry gun I wouldn't recommend doing too much. And like Quentin said, shoot it as is for a while, you may find that you don't want to change anything.
