You're right, he was way out of line. However, there are smarter ways to deal with a name caller than calling him a bad name.

So you removed the Target Trigger & added a COMBAT trigger says the prosecuting attorney. Who do you think you are, Rambo?

Honestly I think they would go after anything they could if given a chance. If your gun was completely stock with no modifications then the prosecuting side would go after your gun type, or your bullet choice (why would a reasonable person have any reason to use a killer bullet with a huge hollow point that expands & causes massive internal damage?). Or the type of flashlight you carried, or the type of vehicle you drive, or you get the idea.

This is where your (good) defense attorney comes in to poke large holes in the prosecution's "fishing for" stories.

To tell you the truth, personally, I worry more about my military combat past coming up at a trial than anything I would do to modify my carry weapon.

I am old so my old eye sight needs good sights to see the darn things, my arthritis fingers need a trigger pull I can use effectively, so my personal take is--if I modify my gun to fit my physical limitations I just can't see a jury buying into the modifications were to make the gun more deadly or whatever they are fishing for.

I see it a lot like a vehicle modified for a handicapped person. There is just no way the modified vehicle wouldn't come up at trial but if the accident was because the other person illegally turned in front of the handicapped vehicle I just can't see it effecting the outcome.

Actually, he didn't ask for anyone's opinion. His posts simply asked if anyone had it done and if so, by whom.

I've not had it done, but I've seen the key device installed with the backplate replaced. Been curious about it myself.

Yep, anything can come in to play, which is asinine. I remember the defense pointed out that the gun didn't have a safety, just like the sheriff's gun in the court, and it was loaded will full mag + 1, just like the police / sheriff / bailiff / etc.

Kind of off topic, that stupid "target trigger" was only added for import points. I wonder if, now that they are making the guns here, if the smaller guns will start coming with the "normal" trigger.

And modern Glocks have a loaded chamber indicator as well - the extractor sticks out a little.

Here is a photo from Glock. Not sure how long ago this was but it was posted on here a few years ago.

Oh, that looks like a winner. So close & so similar to the mag release.

Bet a lot users dropped the mag out when they thought they were using the safety button.

Except you can have it on safe when it is protruding from the right side of the frame where there is no possibility of pressing the magazine release.

Maybe you guys could help me since you know so much. Why does my clip fall out every time I push the little safety button on the side? And which trigger makes the gun shoot, the big one or the little one inside it?
























Wait for it.....wait for it.....

I would explain it to you but...it's complicated.

Sounds like a fair question from a newbie so try reading the manual that came with your gun.

If you are still confused after reading the manual then you may have to seek help from a more experienced shooter or an experienced instructor.

Good luck in figuring it out.

To answer the op....yes someone here has done that, but not me.

Make sure if you are going to modify platforms, holsters, etc, or even switch between the two that you train correctly. There was a video of a guy shooting himself in the leg with a 1911 bc he switched holsters but didn't turn the page mentally. He was initially drawing from a safari land holster with a thumbswitch release and then switched to a serpa cqc. When he drew from the serpa, his muscle memory hit the thumb switch that wasn't there (he thumbed off the safety a little earlier than he was used to) and his finger slipped off the serpa release into the trigger guard. It went into his thigh and exited his calf.
My point is ( my preference, not yours) that I like to have my glocks operate the same. I don't want to have to remember which one has a safety and which one doesn't in the heat of the moment.

The difference between you and Mas being that he's an expert and you have no idea what you're talking about.

You form and offer an opinion without having the requisite knowledge. Mas, and other people who don't wish to look like idiots, do not. Your argument about a 1911 (or any other pistol) not needing a safety if a Glock doesn't need one is a great example. You didn't know the basic operation of either firearm (if you did you would understand why the 1911 requires an external safety and why a Glock does not) yet you spouted off anyway.
