I'm a recent convert to the opinion that buying a pistol designed with a manual safety makes the most sense, even if that means selling a Glock to get the safety-equipped gun. While the OP didn't ask for such opinions, hearing different perspectives can be helpful if they are offered in a constructive way.

A system that makes it clear whether the OP is looking for opinions, information or both.
The way it is now, the OP may be looking for information and all he is getting is pages and pages of opinions along with people telling him how to live his life and what equipment he must buy.
Heck, this thread is for the most part on topic. Many threads wind up in a conversation that has nothing to do with the OP.

M&P's make good carry guns and they come in both flavors.

I really like my Shield 40 and yes, I use the safety.

Glocks have a lot to offer that other guns don't. If you want everything a Glock has to offer and a manual safety, a Glock with a Comonelli might be EXACTLY the handgun for you.

I think the Trigger Block Safety is the way to bring additional peace of mind to my carry Glock. I have used one daily. Train with one. No NDs in twenty plus years of Concealed Carry.

This does not alter the pistol, so resale is not affected. Also costs under $20

sent from my rotary wall phone
I haven't had a ND or AD in any of my pistols in 20 years either. My pistol has nothing on it beyond the safeties added at the factory. Weird.....

That's the way forums are. Threads go off topic all the time. I've seen a heck of a lot worse than this.

This is a topic of considerable interest, judging from the number of threads inquiring about the Cominelli safety, the Siderlock and trigger blocks. Narrow inquiries always broaden because so many people are adamantly against any modification to a Glock that smacks of a manual safety device. It's just a 'goosy' topic.

I say add a manual safety if you've thoughtfully considered the arguments against doing so. There are some valid reasons against an add-on safety, not the least of which is there doesn't seem to be widespread endorsement by people who have first-hand experience using Cominelli or Siderlock. Not one thread I've seen here at GT or elsewhere registered broad support from experienced users; to me, that's pretty compelling.

I've just about decided to get one on my old Gen2 G19 just for spite.
