Those damn Glocks cry out for those professional enough to carry them!
That leaves me out..
What’s your point?
He pulled on the trigger enough to disengage the trigger safety?
I am still partial to a 1911.
Yeah, Glocks have that super-sophisticated danger - pulling the trigger fires the weapon.
That's why, out of tens of millions of Glocks, there's so many accidental firings...
oh, wait a minute...
If you're going to carry a gun, do it the right way. Like the story points out, you shouldn't carry a gun without a holster. Especially a Glock.
To carry a pistol with a CHAMBERED round in it, I believe—is contrary to all safety training.
What do those Freepers with a CC permit say?
First firearms safety is your brain. Disengage that and bad things happen.
Condition One is safer than a Glock, I think.
Plus, most 1911s are carried on the hip rather than in the crotch. I have a Taurus Millenium I carry on occasion where the sun don’t shine (warm weather) but its DA striker with a safety.
Holsters are your friends.
I never understood the reasoning behind the Glock’s safety - but that’s just me and my limited experience. I bought a Springfield XDM as a first pistol as I liked the safety on the rear of the grip and the way it felt and shot.
Is always in a holster, and always has a round chambered.
Perhaps. Right, wrong or indifferent, I have been carrying my Glock 22 with a chambered round for ten years. The difference here is I always carry in the proper holster. Always.
I find an inside the pants soft holster, secured firmly to a leather belt and the waist of your pants is very secure, yet easy to pull, if the need to do so ever comes.
Get to the range often and practice, practice, practice is what we preach to the ladies we teach in our Second Amendment Sister classes.
Walther PP style pistols are designed to be carried with a round in the chamber. And the double action on my P64 is so stiff it’s pretty much impossible to fire it by accident.
Disagree, but it’s a matter of training and practice. If you’re carrying a revolver, no big deal. But, if you’re carrying a semi-auto, can you guarantee you’ll have time to rack the slide?
That is incorrect. My CHL trainer carries a chambered, hammer cocked, 1911 45. I don’t carry chambered because I have kids.
He must have hit his femoral artery.
Dang! I just hate it when that happens!
