CARRY CONCEALED!!

ATTENTION GLOCK OWNERS!! CARRYING CONCEALED WITH A GLOCK HAS ALWAYS BEEN EASY AND ANY GLOCK OWNER SHOULD KNOW YOU DON'T MESS WITH A GLOCK. SWAP THE GARBAGE FACTORY SIGHTS FOR GOOD TRIJICON SIGHTS AND LEAVE THE REST ALONE!!! LIKE MY ALL CAPS THING? Yeah, me neither.

Huh?

Whazzup with that? Glocks are Boooteeefull! The prob w/ shiny guns is you need to polish them. Glocks--no problemo. With their 'safeties' it just gives new definition to 'point and shoot.' Eat yer heart out, Nikon!

I have sigs and glocks.... I like your comparison though. I usually say glocks are my bic lighters and sigs are my zippos.

Would you wear your rolex to to the gym? I would rather leave a time ex in my truck than a rolex.

Sig are great guns...

But Glocks are better. Sigs are too picky with ammo. They are probably the most accurate production guns in the world, but the reliability compared to a Glock is not there. I can't say I'd feel vulnerable if all I had was a Sig, but it is definitely not my first choice.

I have a few sigs and fired almost all models/calibers. They will eat anything that you feed them, just like glocks.

Sorry to be the glock

Sorry to be the glock basher... but i don't think they are a good carry... unless you are a cop open-carrying, but concealed carried no freaking way... that safety system is not designed for that, and i know i'm gonna get something about it's fine if you have a good holster... sorry not trusting my femoral artery to a piece of leather. only way i would carry it is unchambered, and thats not very affective is it? That and they are to bulky for a good comfortable conceal...

I have carried a locked and loaded Glock 19, 26, or 23 for a long time now and have never had a problem. My femoral arteries are still intact, as is every other part. The Sig, at least the P228 I have used, has no manual safety either. And it does not have a trigger safety. That garbage about "needing the right holster" is just that; garbage. Any holster you use for concealed carry should cover the trigger guard no matter what model gun you carry. Too bulky? There is prctically no difference in bulk between Sigs and Glocks. Seriously, TacDoc. If you need an argument for Sigs over Glocks, at least use something that makes sense. Of course, a Sig over Glock argument cannot make sense.

G36 is a slim .45

by Glock--sub-compact. The flip side is it will only take a single-stack magazine of 6 rounds. Most Glocks are 30mm to 32.5mm in width. The 36 shaves a couple mm off, but not much. I'm not arguing with you and respect your position. People who do carry Glocks don't seem to be worrried and say the lack of a conventional 'switch' safety is one less thing to worry about when speed is an issue. (My son carries a G29 (10mm sub).) On the other hand the odd safety mechanism is usually the first thing non-Glock folks cite in their criticism of the type.

I would be curious to know if there have been any issues with this safety. Has it been known to fail? Other problems? I don't know myself--just asking the group.

Schuyler I'm not a glock guy, but only cause it's really uncomfortable in my hand. I'm not asking the question of reliability and I have no data on them failing either. But the design is a problem because the "three safeties" are deactivated by one release. And if it was all safe gun handling why do we still need safeties, I feel there are better choices in the safety debate.

No manual safety should ever be relied upon to protect oneself from bad gunhandling skills. The lack of a manual safety on a Glock, Springfield, Sig, or revolvers for that matter, forces one to use the safety between your ears. The lack of a manual safety is not a big deal for those of us who actually abide by the rules of gun safety.

Don't give me the bad gun handling skills argument, if it's concealed carried you cannot see that trigger, and if you can't see the trigger you don't know what it's doing down there... correct me if i'm wrong but they do not have the grip safety like a XD does... sorry not enough safety there...

There 3 safeties are all deativated by the trigger safety.

but you wanna say i'm a bad gun handler, than i'll say lets not recommend glocks to inexperienced shooters who probably don't have good gun handling skills just because we like them.

And runaway did you read the post about one of our members getting shot in the crotch with his carry, I know it wasn't a glock, but I'll believe it said he thinks his jeans bunched up in the trigger, through the holster he had. Yea general carry world glocks are good, but if things aren't perfect and one safety on the trigger nonetheless is not that good. I would take a pistol with a thumb safety or a XD or 1911 with a grip safety over anything else.

In the the situation of our member who had his carry discharge on him...
That trigger safety is useless. sorry not enough safety for me no matter how careful i can be.

Speaking of being a good gun handler... wouldn't having more preventive safeties the smart gun handling thing to do?

Absolutley not

And to have a gun go off because his jeans bunched up through his holster? You may not like the argument of have a good holster, but that seems like one to me. I've had a 1911 that would fire without the grip safety being depressed. It was an auto ordnance 1911 and the grip safety was not pinned, just defective. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire. This includes when holstering, drawing, or at the ready. If you rely on mechanical safties to keep you safe, then you are not a safe gun handler, plain and simple. Any mechanical device can fail, and that is why we do malfunction drills with our guns. You said Sigs are one of the guns you prefer in an earlier post, yet it has none of the safety features of even the Glock. I have carried a gun both on and off duty for the better part of twenty years and have never had a negligent discharge. And I have certainly never worried about "what my trigger was doing down there". I can tell you what my trigger is doing when my gun is holstered; nothing at all. And as for the genius whose jeans shot him? Sounds like Mexican carry is not a wise choice for him.

safely carrying

i know that i carry a revolver in my new holster(see my pictures)but when i had the holster built i had the holster cut so the trigger is just covered by the leather.i didnt want the trigger way down in the holster because if i am in the woods brush and stuff could get in there and possibly set off the trigger.the hammer is held down by a tight fitting hammer loop.i was concerned about the possibility that somehow the gun could be accidently fired and built accordingly even though the trigger pull on a revolver is different than on a auto.

So why do you talk up a glock so much, what's the difference between a glock, xd, beretta. they are all mechanical devices and if all mechanical devices fail it actually makes them less effective than a brick, cause a brick would have more knockdown power. it's the possiblity... I'll take the zero risk. But i'm sorry there are alot better carry choices out there than a glock.

Can you get bricks with hi-cap magazines? Just curious. That has got to be the lamest example of rationalization I have ever read. Now, I'm not trying to start a pissing contest (God knows I'm still reeling from the fiasco with NavySeal, BenJB, and FreedomMilitaria. Wait, that was sarcasm.), but come on now. My reasoning for talking up a Glock is the same reason so many professionals prefer them. Unbeatable reliability (bricks notwithstanding), more than acceptable accuracy, simple manual of arms, high capacity, and affordable price. Others are good, but Glock is better.

with those categories

with those categories technically an XD is better, I have heard from more than enough law enforcement and military grunts they would take the xd over all others popular carries. now I haven't shot an xd however I've heard they have better accuracy, same reliability, higher capacity and cheaper price than a glock. the last two you can walk into a store and check that data. And to make me happy, better safety features without sacrificeing shooting speed or handling.

Honestly we're debating more over personnal preference you're a die hard glock fan and I'm a die hard not-glock fan.

if you've never fired an XD, how can you claim its better than a glock? They are almost the exact same pistol with the exception of the grip safety. both are simple, reliable, accurate enough, similar price...

IT JUST COMES DOWN TO PREFERENCE!

I agree it does come down to preference, but thats not the arguement it was about safety not about how it shoots... and you know as well as i do plenty of people use the my buddy argument, that last part just came up at the end. I'm sorry I haven't gotten a chance to go test fire one. But my "lack of experience" with the pistol clouds the argument... it's not about xd or sig or anything, it's about glocks safety features that i feel are disabled way too easily. its a design and engineering arguement.

glock

i have shot my dad's G19 a bunch of times.it is a decent gun except for i have to watch the position of my hand on the grip or i get "glock skidmarks" on my hand from the slide cycling but that is due to the size of my hands.

I have the same situation as Greasy, the first time i ever piced up and fired a glock, the son of a bitch cut my hand open with the slide, right between my thumb and index finger. i didnt screw up my grip, just grabbed it naturaly. the one i use at work now, i have to be very cognicent of my grip or i too will get skidmarks and cuts.

I have the same thing

Glocks are bad about that for those of us who use a high grip. It's not an issue for me anymore. I've started to develop a callus (sp) there, and when shooting, I really don't notice it anymore until I'm done shooting. I think it's kinda cool, like a scar with a good story behind it. But I hate myself, and any pain or discomfort I can cause myself is punishment I deserve.

I'd take a tazer shot every day for the rest of my life in order to avoid OC one more time. On the streets, I'd rather get hit with OC because you can fight through it. But in a controlled setting, at leat the tazer is over in 5 seconds. OC felt like that time I had herpegonosyphillaids. It just wouldn't stop burning

no problems

I have logged over 40,000 rounds through my glock and can't remember ever having a problem. I carry it religiously......hoodies seem to hide it well. To me a Sig is a good boat anchor.

worlds record, after more than 40,000 rounds, BUT I have a friend who has over 32,000 rounds thru his[G17] without a hiccup, AND that pistol has NEVER been cleaned! It's sort of an informal user-type test, but when/if he gets to 50,000 without a hang-up, he is going to write a testimonial to Glock, sort of like those Chevy Truck total mileage commercials.
