LODI= Land Of Dumb Italians.
...lodi is full of Mexicans and migrant farm workers. oh and gangs.
They're the worst kind of Mexicans.
What a dummy!
It was probably a Glock, the safety is within the trigger so if you just squeeze the trigger, the gun fires.
well isn't that the stupidest fucking safety ever devised.
Well yeah, but who the fuck leaves a Glock unholstered? It's why Plaxico shot himself.
I've carried G17 for nearly 5 years. I'd never unholster it and leave it for people to play with. And what kid could pull a Glock from a kydex rig? It must have been left out unholstered for kids to see.
No. Glocks are a defensive pistol. They are meant to draw and shoot. You could throw a "cocked" and loaded Glock down a flight of stairs and it won't discharge. The "safety" of a Glock is your brain. Just like a double action revolver. Don't pull the trigger and it won't go off.
it really one of the best designs. too many people die because in the heat of the action they forget to release the safety. every pro knows you're not supposed to pull a gun unless you intend to shoot it. the gun should not have been where the kid could get to it. the cop committed negligent suicide.
or if you absently pass it to another who is unaware of the trigger safety. My point is why bother putting a slide block in if the same motion as pulling the trigger releases the slide( i mean the slide of the trigger pull being physically blocked)? I can throw my single action down the stairs too, it has a firing plate that doesn't engaged until cocked.
Technically, pulling the trigger of a Glock IS cocking it. It's striker fired and can't engage unless you mean to engage it. It's why I never recommend Glocks to people who've never handled a handgun.
But, holstered, it's perfectly suited for what it's supposed to do. Any decent kydex or leather holster should cover the trigger guard fully. I've never even seen any that do not.
You don't see the need for the proper accessory as not a basic design flaw?
what you're suggesting is really irresponsible handling of a deadly device. you wouldn't absently pass a jar of nitro to another, so why would you do that with a gun? its just sloppy and negligent to handle a gun like that. when you pass a fixed blade knife to another you always turn it around and hand them the handle or blunt end.
people need to have more respect for life and things that can end it.
the first round of every loaded hand gun should be a blank, think about it. that would be a good common sense law & in practice would save many innocents & protect many against their own stooopidity.
Honestly, it was still very uncomfortable for me when I first bought my Glock. When I went through the academy, I used a .357 until we switched over to our future service weapon (at that time in the late 80's) the Ruger P-85, and I also bought one for myself. So not having the feel of a thumb safety was hard to get used to, when I bought my Glock in 2003.
but its a practice thing. individuals would have to do it.
No. Even without a holster, the Glock is fine for home defense. Just leave it uncocked. Rack the slide when you need it.
An external safety is a nice feature on some guns, but the Glock was designed for law enforcement and military use primarily. Where drawing a gun with the safety engaged can cause death.
A Glock costs about $600 new. A cheap kydex Fobus holster costs about $20-40. If you can afford a Glock, you can afford a holster. If you're too dumb to know that Gkocks are always "ready to go" when the slide has been engaged, then you're a danger around ANY firearm.
The first handgun that I ever bought was a G17. I've yet to have any accidental or negligent discharges.
