If you add up the 10 year results, the total is 216 NDs, or an average of 22 per year.
I don't know how many years NYPD has used Glock pistols, but I suspect a good many of these NDs (most, I suspect) were with Glocks.
I do know it is politically incorrect, or worse, to post statements here that seem to cast a negative shadow on Glock pistols. Really, I'm not. I'm just trying to highlight the true risk of carrying a Glock in C1 without gun handling experience and training beyond what most of us attain...and maintain.
I once shadowed a police officer. They have to handle their firearm more than we do. Any time they book an arrest, they must unholster and put in lock box. I don't unholster most of the time. I simply take the holstered gun off and put in safe.
