Yeah and slide mounted safeties are the best. Don't let anyone complain to you about how they sometimes get accidentally turned on from racking the slide, how they're placed in awkward position or how they operate in the opposite direction of the frame mounted safeties.

The Army only provides the troops with the very best equipment made. It's the government, budgeting is not an issue.

The Beretta M9 is perfection. They're the most reliable gun made with parts only occasionally breaking.

The grips also feel very natural and good in the hand. They're very organic feeling, like an organ.

Don't let anyone talk you into a Glock just because they're used by military and police around the world, the U.S. Army doesn't issue them. Don't let anyone talk you into an HK with their LEM trigger either. Don't let anyone talk you into the Kahr or the M&P which don't commonly have safeties either.

Guns like the Walther p22 and Beretta M9 are far more reliable and safer to rely on.

Get an M9 or a Beretta PX 4 if the M9 is too big for you. You could buy the M9A3 which has interchangeable backstraps but it is not cheap. Yes,slide safeties can be awkward to reach but saying that you can accidentaly engage them while racking the slide just means that you are clumsy. Also having a decocker and a DA/SA gun is good in my opinion.
If you can't get over having slide safeties get an HK USP

When is something getting stuck in the trigger guard?

It's a pistol. It's either in your holster or in your hands. Get a good holster for it, not leather or a SERPA, and make sure the holster is clear if you've been in some trees or dense brush before reholstering.

the glock has one safety and its basically the same thing as having a sheath with a blade mounted to the outside of it.

Don't call me shirley. And unless you're carrying without a holster, that's impossible.
>>
>>28717931
People tend to buy cheap junk when it comes to holsters, and thin leather will eventually end up like pic related.

SERPAs are a safety hazard. Yes you can train to not fuck up, but there have been cases of SF guys ND'ing into their legs and dying because of SERPAs. They also tend to jam up when sandy, which means the user has to push the button really hard and pull to unlock it, which causes the finger to slip into the trigger guard.

As far as most people are concerned, even if you have 10 safeties that are disengaged with one control, it still only counts as one safety.

>Explain what situation something like that could happen?

I've owned my Glock for well over 4 years and have never had an ND.

I cannot imagine having to quickly draw my firearm in an ever evolving self defense situation and have to release a safety. I want to pull my gun and shoot without having to think about anything other than the trigger.

Let me ask you, have you ever actually handled and fired a Glock? Be honest.

You've got a fuckton of travel in the trigger, followed by a heavy, stiff break, all the while whatever is pulling the trigger has to keep constant pressure on a small, thin plastic nub in the lower-center area of the trigger.

In none of the situations you've mentioned can I envision some foreign object in the trigger guard successfully maintaining the right angle, position, and constant force/pressure throughout the whole of the Glock's long, heavy, stiff trigger pull. Not only that, but as others have noted, you should always have it in either a holster or in your hands anyway. It would take either the absolute perfect storm of fuck, or firm, conscious negligence to accidentally pull the trigger on a Glock.

But firing the gun and disengaging the safety are the same force in the same plane/direction, right?

Think about how much it would cost to give every soldier the BEST equpiment availible, I'm afraid that you are incorrect. The US army goes with this mindset, "We should give everyone cost effective equipment that is adequate for the job that the soldiers need to fill". If you are right then why we have not adopted the SCAR 16 as standard issue? I'm sure it's nothing to do with the fact they are ~3k. Also the beretta safety sucks balls dude, take it from someone who owns a 1911 and a 92fs.
>>
>>28716161

Can someone explain this thinking to me, honestly, all sweet /k/ memes aside.

The Glock DOES have a safety. Its that little lever on the trigger. If you dont press that little lever the gun can not fire.

So the only way to fire your Glock is to pull the trigger. Are there people out there pulling on triggers all willy nilly and only being saved because there was a manual safety in the way? Are people drawing their weapons with their fingers on the triggers? Just grab any part of the weapon that ISNT the trigger, its not hard.

Yes and yes. I don't believe you can have a Glock which is chambered but not cocked.

I'm sure you could stick a round in the chamber with the gun disassembled, but once it gets onto the frame I think it "cocks" itself.

There's no hammer to let down. You can't have it chambered without it being partially cocked.

M&P.jpg
315 KB, 1142x621
Been thinking about trigger safeties a lot lately. I'm thinking they are just about useless. Anything that gets into the trigger guard is going to ride the curve of the trigger till it depresses the safety bar anyways. Did some tests where I'd stuff chunks of my shirt into the trigger guard when holstering. It would pull the trigger every time.

Thinking I might just disable the safety for a better pull, on a glock it be easier then my M&P
>>
>>28718556
>But firing the gun and disengaging the safety are the same force in the same plane/direction, right?

Yes, but that force needs to be relatively heavy, applied to a specific spot on the lower half of the trigger, and applied over a period of time in the same way. Your finger pads are large and soft, and encompass the whole of the trigger. Something hard and potentially thin like a branch (which, frankly, I'm having a hard time envisioning how one would get in there in the first place given proper carry) would have to resist a tendency to slide up and down or side to side (especially on the ridged triggers found in the compacts, subcompacts, etc.), as well as keep a stern, ***continuous*** force over a long pull followed by a heavy, stiff break. I just find all these conditions very unlikely to occur all at once. You need to be carrying your gun in a stupid way, get something caught in the trigger guard somehow, keep it in there in such a way that it depresses a certain part of the trigger, overcome a long pull/stiff break, all without noticing.

As far as dropping the gun and having the trigger somehow snag on something, I find it very unlikely that it would fire in such a scenario either. It's going to hit it at an awkward angle no matter what and be fire more likely to deflect to the side or spin around. You'd need to saw off the front of your trigger guard and drop it perfectly on a rigid steel beam to discharge the gun that way.

Sorry for the long wall of text, but it's kind of difficult to articulate this feeling I'm trying to describe. I think you'd perhaps understand if you had handled a Glock trigger before. I mean, if the Glock trigger was a very light trigger with a crisp, light break and very little pre-travel, I'd understand where you're coming from. It's not, however.

>>
>>28718752
Thank you. That helps to clarify.

How much force is necessary to disengage the safety compared to pulling the trigger?

Not a whole lot, and it doesn't have very much travel.

I guess the best way I can think to articulate my point is that you should think of carrying a Glock as akin to carrying a DA revolver and the like. The long, heavy trigger pull contributes in large part to the safety. On the Glock, the nub/other safeties are just bonuses.

Fear of an ND due to a trigger safety is pretty irrational. It's statistically unlikely that an ND is going to occur. It's also statistically unlikely you're ever going to need your firearm. Yet we all carry. Let the people who want their manual safeties have them.

So you have no argument?

>>28718947
You devised a situation where you could actuate a trigger press and then use that as evidence to support a preconceived conclusion. That's not how it works, to say nothing of how careless you're being by trying to reholster with your shirt in the way. This is why people say "your brain and your finger are your safety."

i have a gun that fires even when the safety is engaged 100% of the time i figured this out when i emptied the mag at the range and then looked at the safety.
>>
>>28718947
Any foreign object that happens to press against the top of the trigger (which, given at least the Glock's trigger/safety design, is entirely possible, and even probably likely that a foreign object will ride up to the top or otherwise to a point where it's not depressing the safety) or the sides (namely at an angle) will keep the trigger from firing.

Yes, if you jam massive foreign objects into the trigger guard and push straight down, it's going to set the gun off. That's not a realistic test by any means, though.

I made up a test, came to a conclusion based on my test. Then asked for peer review. Unless you can devise another test for it why are you even replying to me?

>That's not how it works, to say nothing of how careless you're being by trying to reholster with your shirt in the way. This is why people say "your brain and your finger are your safety."

I am 100% using my brain and finger as a safety. How am I not? By the time I'm drawn and finger on the trigger i'm pointing at something i'm willing to shoot

>>28719032

Name a single way that trigger can be pressed without whatever is rising it riding down the curve of the trigger. I can't think of a single way that can happen. I really think the trigger safety is a protectionist thing

Jesus that video is amazing, I kinda wanna rag on him for calling his mom first but id probably do the same
>>
>>28719068
Like I said, at least with a *GLOCK* trigger (which is a curve that rides up to a right angle rather than a straight up "C" type crescent) and at most angles, foreign objects tend to ride up in between the top of the trigger and the frame, or deflect off to the side at an angle and not depress the safety/have enough force or the ability to apply it in such a way to depress the trigger. I just tested this with my own Glock and various objects at different angles.

This may be different with other triggers, however.
>>
>>28719179
That may be the case for Glock triggers, i'd need one in my hands and mess with. For the M&P trigger that lock can be defeated from just about any angle. The only way to have the lock work is if I use my finger and press high on the trigger but even then my finger still wants to slide down the curve.
>>
>>28716310
It will still shoot if ones not already in the chamber, pulling the trigger puts one in the chamber! So whatever situation you get in with your glock regardless if ones in the chamber or not and somehow the trigger gets pulled, there'll be a bang
>>
>>28716161
Get a 1911.
Literally GOAT tier pistol.

But, honestly, don't worry about it.

Flocks and other striker fired guns have amazing safety records.

Revolvers don't have safeties either.
>>
>>28719179
Oh, and this is all assuming you've got something just pushed straight through the trigger guard. Naturally, something that's just barely in and pressing against the edge of the trigger isn't going to do shit.

I understand your apprehension to them, but personally, I think they're better than nothing so long as there are at least SOME instances they can present an ND. They're certainly not 100% fool-proof, but then again, no safety is. I think we can both agree that by far, the most important thing in preventing an ND is smart, proper gun-handling.

>>28719197
Yeah, I can understand fully where you're coming from with regards to M&P triggers. It's got a much more pronounced, crescent shape to it that certainly looks like it directs foreign objects directly to the middle. The curve of the Glock's trigger is much broader, and again, in my experience, directs foreign objects to a right angle between the top of the trigger and the frame.
>>
>>28718694
If I had a dollar for every time a stick got stuck in my trigger guard...
>>
>>28719250
So my whole point, since we don't hear about a lot of ND with M&Ps that the trigger safety is well useless
>>
>>28719281
Yeah, that, or maybe they are actually working and helping prevent NDs? The argument could go both ways.

Besides, it's not like there are official figures on M&P NDs, and I really can't argue with anecdotal evidence. Even if there WERE somehow official figures on M&P NDs, they would need to differentiate between NDs due to getting shit actually getting caught in the trigger, and NDs due to people just generally being retards, as well as such data for other pistols.
>>
>>28719433
I'm banking on the fact you don't see a ton of NDs in the news
>>
>>28719225
cause double action, they don't need safeties

>>28716161
>NDs take a certain amount of incompetency with a firearm to happen
>If you were going to have one, you will still have one with a safety on your gun
>if you are the type of person to worry about NDs you are not the kind of person that has one

Learn the basic rules of handling a firearm and you will never have a ND and never need a manual safety. It will get you killed when your adrenaline is pumping and you're in a panic and forget that it's on or accidentally switch it on.

>>28716161
Glocks are safe as any other handgun.

This doesn't mean I HATE guns with external safeties. But if you're going to be carrying this weapon, you'll have to train to remember the safety. Now, that's an extra step to remember that could cost you time, but again, up to you.

Personally, just get comfortable with your handgun and the basics of safety. Avoid ever losing attention while you have it around, so you don't do something stupid like ND.
>>
>>28719499
Not having a safety can also get you killed when your horse is spooked and you have your pistol out.

Your decades of experience don't seem to have run you across the fact that there are many different use cases.

My CC is a glock because yes, if in my regular life if I need to draw my gun I dont want a safety on it because the situation will probably be me shooting and then dropping my weapon until the police show up.

But with a duty weapon you might have to negotiate an obstacle and still need your weapon out. Manual safeties are good to have for those situations.

Actually I'm not even going to try to edit that into a coherent response you're just a faggot.

the safety is in the trigger; it is on safe at all times, but when you pull the trigger you engage the safety and when the trigger resets youre off safety.

Man its a good thing all those cavalry soldiers fighting off a horse with Colt revolvers had all those external safeties or they would have just shot each other all the time.

Except they didn't. Seriously, are you this delusional? What scenario would have you on horseback, your GLOCK drawn and ready to fire, and your horse (i need to reiterate that you are on a HORSE) spooks, and that causes you to flail so wildly that you pull the trigger.

What do you imagine yourself doing at times like these? Being literally Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid V?

Also, so you have to negotiate an obstacle with your weapon out. OK, step one, take finger out of trigger guard. Step two, negotiate obstacle. Step three, keep finger out of trigger guard you idiot.

Ok Mr. L337opurador, how many hundreds of thousands of times have you practiced drawing and clicking the safety off? Do you think everyone does it enough to perform that under the most stressful situation of their lives? One less thing I have to train myself to overcome + faster into the fight = more likely I'll survive the fight with my Glock.

Thats why you don't rely on safeties you dumb fuck. I honestly don't understand what is so difficult to understand about there not being a spooky ghost floating around making your gun ND while sitting in your holster. If you don't carry with one in the chamber, then theres really not any use in carrying at all. If you're seriously that scared of your own gun, just get some pepper spray, because your mental capacity and sense of logic is not far off from a teenage girl.

I love these threads so much.

All the no-guns posting, in clear daylight, proof that they have little-to-no experience with, let alone ownership of, firearms.

My Ruger p91-dc has no safety, but a mere decocker.

How is that bullet going to fire when the hammer is in DA position?

How is that heavy-ass DA trigger going to move that hammer all the way back without a finger doing some work?

My girlfriend can't pull the DA trigger without using both of her index fingers.

Please, tell me what is going to set that gun off, aside from a finger.

That's probably because you haven't been carrying/shooting for very long. Just do it more and you'll eventually realize that it's no less safe.
