Valuable, yet simple instruction on shedding , you guessed it, Glock Leg .
The first case of Glock Leg I ever saw happened long before the Glock pistol was invented. It was S&W mod 36 leg. Since then I've seen many more cases of Glock leg, and some of them actually involved Glocks.
Do you think we could coin the term Hoppe's Head for all the people that are shot during gun cleaning?
You know there's an award for that.
Yes, I do. I also understand it is often awarded posthumously.
Hahahaha love it. Glockleg = hateraide
So, do we now know who is incapable of keeping their finger off the trigger until they're ready to fire or are the faces hidden to protect the Darwin award candidates?
Pretty sure they wont tell us the Glockleg victims.. errr I mean morons lol
As I've heard many times before, "keep your booger hook off the bang switch"
I don't suppose, by chance, there's a
www.1911Leg.com, or a www.BerettaLeg.com,
for those of us too unsophisticated to operate
the simple, yet Almighty G?
sputnik1988, John Wayne was right. It's harder if you're stupid. I think literally shooting yourself in the foot (or leg) qualifies.
Dude, get over it. For every case of "Glock Leg" the Internet spews forth (because we all know the Internet never lies) there's thousands if not millions of Glock owners who have never had a negligent discharge let alone shot themselves.
After working with some "geniuses" in my LE career, I've never met, nor witnessed a single incident of Glock leg, and I've worked for the largest department (1400 sworn) in my area and have been involved in multijurisdictional task forces as well.
We get it, you hate Glocks. Not everyone does. Accept it.
Before I got on this forum I'd never heard anything bad about glocks or about them being negligently discharged. I don't own one but I've shot a couple and I don't understand why glock leg is a thing. Lol. I understand there's no external safety, but if you follow the basic safety rules for every firearm, I.e booger hook off the bang switch as I've read, shouldn't they be just as safe as any other handgun?
Or am I missing something? That's not sarcasm by the way, I really am just curious as I've considered buying a glock.
They're just as safe as every other gun. Unfortunately, not all gun owners are as smart as every other gun owner.
I own Glocks, nice firearms. The manufacturer thinks they are easier to shoot than some handguns. I accept that. Few restrictions from wanting to shoot, and shooting. One of the most simple, user friendly handguns ever made. We all admit that. Right?
That ease of use, comes with a price. Easy to use, is also easy to mess up. Can't have it one way, without having it both ways.
True, but it's only easy to mess up if the shooter isn't cognizant of his trigger finger. They will not just "go off", no matter what anyone says.
There's no external safety which is a sticking point with some people. The lack of a manual safety requires stricter trigger discipline. Off target, off trigger. Keep things away from the trigger and there's no chance of popping off a round. It's just like a double action revolver in that regard, but because it's a new fangled plastic gun it has been met with resistance from old school shooters.
They're built for combat which is why Gaston decided to do away with an external safety. They're made to be like a sword; ready for action as soon as it is "unsheathed."
There are dozens of similar clones out there, yet they do not get the resistance that Glock does. The M&P offers a striker fired pistol sans safety, but where's the Internet outrage about that?
The reason the Internet is alive with rumors of Glock Leg is simply because there's more Glocks out there and more sold to the average Joe Idiot who has no concept of safety or formal training.
Well there is this famous one with good ol' Tex Grebner and his 1911.
He's already been shown that one in another thread. His undying hatred for anything Glock forces him to pop his head into every Glock thread, contribute nothing, then bash the pistols.
Well, I'm obviously a biased fanboy :
Don't worry, apparently so am I.
All I'm saying is you gotta be pretty dumb to shoot yourself... for real. Obey the rules!!!!!
