    At the risk of beating a dead horse ... I recently came upon a thread on the relative merits (or lack of it) of Glocks not having a 'regular' safety like other semi-automatic handguns.

    Please refer to

    http://glocktalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=635445

    Some of the "arguments pro Glock" may be valid but would seem to fall under the 'a priori' type of argumentation. There is nothing like factual data, i.e., comparative statistics on ADs and NDs resulting in injuries or deaths, to bolster the claims pro or con.

    In short, DO WE HAVE COMPARATIVE STATISTICS ON THE PERCENTAGE OF INJURY OR DEATH THAT HAPPENED AS A RESULT OF ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGES OR NEGLIGENT DISCHARGES of FIREARMS WITH REGULAR SAFETIES on the one hand and GLOCK FIREARMS on the other hand?

    By percentage, we mean the number of firearms of one classification involved in injuries or deaths due to ADs and NDs over the total number of such firearms. I think that there are more 1911 types than Glock types.

    Just curious.

    haven't had an AD with my very first 1911..a Para P16-40..no pre-travel and a sub 1-lb. trigger pull ;)

    used it competitively for 6 months now at that very light pull.

    I would be interested in the real numbers as well.

    I don't mind not having a safety on a carry gun. It only clears its holster under controlled circumstances or if I am going to use it. I would prefer that my home defense gun have a safety since it gets handled much more often.

    As soon as I get the Christmas bills paid off it's a 1911 or USP for the house gun.

    I seriously doubt valid statistics for ND's exist.

    I've had 3 ADs during my first years in carrying a 1911 and none with any other firearm.

    +1 - doubt if we can actually get statistics on AD's. Glocks have longer trigger pull so I guess, that compensates and diminishes the probability of AD's. Other FA's like 1911 however have crisper triggers that may result to AD's but unlikely for a skilled shooter.
