    Mas,

    I've read and seen in one of your books that you added a manual thumb safety to a Glock of yours. (17 I believe) Do you do this with all or most of your Glocks? Do you recommend it? Any particular reason you did it to just that one, if that was the case?

    Always interested in how the pros do it... Sorry if this doesn't fall under the self-defense category.

    Thanks

    There are lots of folks who like manual safeties for lots of reasons. For me, I see it more than anything else as one more safety net for the good guy if he gets into a struggle for his gun. The Cominolli safety works well (for right handers) and is available from Tarnhelm Supply, www.tarnhelm.com.

    I've meant to have more of my Glocks converted to it over the years and haven't gotten around to it, but the one G17 so fitted still gets used. I guess it's a case of "the shoemaker's children go barefoot."

    best,
    Mas

    But the lack of manual safety on your other Glocks doesn't deter you from carrying them does it?

    Thanks
