Those damn Glocks cry out for those professional enough to carry them! That leaves me out..

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...

Whatever trips your trigger...

Actually a glock even though a fine weapon is a poor choice for a carry weapon. There have been more cops shot with their own glocks than with any other weapon!
The safety system on a 1911 has saved more lives because of it’s complexity than all the glocks ever produced could dream of.
I own both guns but carry a 1911!
Police departments jumped on the glock because they didn’t have to teach weapon use just shot placement and according to FBI stats police shot placement is only 50 percent of the time.
In classes I have put on when I allowed somebody to take an unloaded glock from me they were able to pull the trigger my 1911 they were not able to make the gun fire before I had it back in my hands or were able to display a backup weapon!
Safety was a priority during those drills but now what firearm do you want to carry?

Gave himself a “Glock racing stripe”, alas.

Glocks are reliable (except for when firing reloads) but are very unforgiving if you get a finger or even a fold of cloth inside the trigger guard.

Condolences to his family.

There actually have been. New York City even had the trigger changed because of it. Don’t even try to claim there are no NDs with Glocks.
