I was waiting for someone to post that! Great scene from a great movie!
The safety isn't on the gun to prevent the gun from firing itself. The safety is to prevent the person with the gun from firing it when it is not intended to fire. Thus the onus is on the person, not the gun .
The presence of the safety does not prevent the gun that is not in a person's hand from firing. It is there only to force the operator to make a "conscious" decision, instead of a reflexive response. It is added to be a deterrent to firing.
It is not an essential part of the gun design, it is simply an added function to deter an ill trained operator from being stupid. It still depends on the skill of the operator to work as intended, or not.
Actually there is both good and bad on both sides of that coin.
Because I was properly trained in 1988 and completely understand how a Glock functions. Been carrying Glocks since that time without any problems. I will continue to carry this way until it is time to take a dirt nap. Regards to all at GT.
That's a very good answer.
....because I don't know better.
...part of my training is how to safely re holster the weapon.
My finger never touches the trigger until I'm ready to fire, I ccw my G-19 or G-26 in a quality IWB that covers trigger guard, and it's a Glock, I've ccw'd one for about 15 years and I'm very familiar with the manual of arms.
The holster is my safety for the Glock. Needs to be a snug fit with no sliding around. The kydex form fitting with friction tension work best for me. You don't have any snaps to undue or buttons to push, but just need a firm tug to draw
DA/SA decocker only, G model?
Yes, Wilson / Beretta 92G Compact.
Because I'm perfect and incapable of forking up.
I use glocks,w no safety and I like sig's with no safety DA/SA and I use revolvers with no safety.
However I love 1911's with thumb and grip safety , been shooting them almost fourty years... don't actually have to think about the safety, my brain operates the safety by reflex. I also run H&K usp's run cocked and locked ... and I run a couple sig 220 Carry single action pistols cocked and locked.
So the glock design is actually not the most common for me to carry, but it's not unsafe or difficult to operate. As long as you use a good holster that fits snug,, it's just another design.
I still like the 1911 design best , it's the most familiar to me and I have been shooting 1911's 37 plus years... that is a lot of rounds and guns to operate over a long period of time.
As said because its 1 more thing to do if SHTF, my EDC is a SCCY CPX2 and has a heavy 9lbs hammer style trigger and I know proper firearms safety. I have never worried about carrying either my G23 or SCCY.
'Cause I'm absent minded and would forget to turn it.............what was the question?
Because I'm a grown adult and I'm going to do what I damn well please. If you don't like it, then you know exactly where you can take your opinion and shove it.
I can't argue with that because honestly I was always just going off hearsay from gun shops saying if that style revolver was dropped on the hammer it was likely to go off. I never studied any further. I haven't carried one in a long time after firing my first Glock. You sound as if you know. Thanks for the correct info I will read about it.
No matter the amount of safeties you put on a gun, a careless idiot will find a way to hurt someone with it.
I don't need or want an external safety on my Glocks anymore than I need or want automatic brakes on my car.
Keep your booger hook off the bullet button and you'll be ok.
I carry a Glock in the appendix carry position because I already have all the kids I want.
And I am trained, careful and treat all weapons as loaded, dangerous and not something to take lightly.
