The points remain.
1) You can't disengage the safety on a Glock. Nor can you engage it. It simply is. I don't consider the trigger thingy a safety.
2) You can engage or disengage the safety on a Beretta, and apparently you can clear the weapon with the safety engaged. That, and not the pointless nattering about Glocks, answered my question.
3) Spare me the "safety is between your ears" lecture ... I do a better job of giving it.
