Aside from covering the trigger, a pocket holster will also keep the gun in the right position all the time regardless of what pants you're wearing or what type of pockets they have. They can also break up the outline of the gun.

He ask about them and we gave our opinion about them. Their junk. I bought a G19 real cheap that had one on it. Their flimsy and feel cheaply made. I had to take a lost just to get rid of it. I paid $350 but had to sell it for $300. The guy I sold it to had it up for sell two weeks later.

Forums are about expressing and expanding on one's opinion. Its just the way it goes.

Its a very controversial topic.

I only ever handled one Glock with that mod and it felt very flimsy to me.

You have to cut the frame right in front of the back slide rail. Not a very good idea if you ask me.

It doesn't matter what the hell the first post was about. Its a controversial topic and this is what happens when such a topic is brought up.

Its a forum. Get over it. Good Lord

I get 5 to 10 or more PMs a week helping members with various questions about all sorts of guns.. I gave my opinion on this.

If you read the thread, you would see that I said I never fired a Glock with the mod. I have handled one and the safety DID NOT have a solid feel to it. What that amounts to, I really can't say. Whether or not it works reliably, I also can't say.

None of those separate issues were my main point anyway.

By the way, how did you determine that I was the only one with first hand experience? In fact, I have no experience other than handling one once. Once again, the actual quality of the mod or parts were not my main points.

We're trying to help fellow members out by steering them away from junk like this. It's simple as this. If you would like to add one to your Glock, why not it's your Glock. It's just like night sights or mag ext. or some other modification you can get for Glocks. I think if it's your cup of tea, go for it. I'm sure it makes Comonolli happy if you buy a bunch of them. As for me, I wouldn't even consider putting one on any of my Glocks. I don't want a safety on my defense pistol. But, I'm all for people that customize their firearms. I just don't like seeing people wast their money on junk. Not only wast their money, they're ruining a good Glock.

I'm surprised that you don't understand how forums work by now. Yes, the original questions are relevant. However, you can't expect people to read a question like that and not have a reaction.

Its just the way it is and its won't be changing any time soon.

Believe me, every thread I start probably goes off topic at some point and I'm not even bringing up topics that are nearly this polarizing.

That's not the case at all. In fact, one guy in the thread installed the mod on all twelve of his Glocks.

Considering the Glocks main rival the M&P comes with manual thumb safety, I would give this man the Glock loyalty award and Darwin award as a bonus

The thumb safety is an option and was implemented because of military and law enforcement requirements. Add a simple thumb safety and now it can be in the running for those entities that require one. All it does is block the trigger from moving back on it's own just like the trigger safety already does.

ETA: I thought you where talking to Bac with the quote. Still relevant info though.

The Darwin award for sure, especially when you consider it cost him an extra $135 per gun to do it...

So, you have twelve $650 Glocks that are worth less than twelve unmolested models.

Their theoretical market value only matters if you choose to sell them, of course.

If you really want a striker fire pistol with a manual safety then Glock is not you gun. I love the Glocks because they are reliable and simple. Once you rack the slide you"re hot and no manual safety to worry about.

Very true

Like I said to him, hopefully he doesn't plan to resell.
