The safety is there to prevent the weapon from being fired if dropped or bashed. Glocks are engineered for professionals who need a different balance of safety vs speed. There are three safties integrated into the trigger mechanism. In that regard, Glocks are very fail-safe. If you don't pull the trigger, it just wont shoot. The odds of a branch or something like it accidentally pulling the trigger are quite long.
Did you buy that weapon at Wade's? God I hate that place. Lots of angry, divorced counter-strike nerds spending their Microsoft salaries on H&K G-11s. That enterprise caters to a deep level of egotistical stupidity.
As far as the video goes:
It is proof positive that the DEA and most federal agents are a bunch of arrogant, stupid cunts. Assholes who wave guns in front of kids talking about two-short and fiddy cent need to be fucking fired and castrated. Then that asswipe has the goddamn nerve to bring out an M-4. Every time I see that video I want to put that man out of my misery with a crowbar. What a stupid, ignorant piece of ****.

I believe they make heavier triggers for Glocks as well as a thumb safety for those that want. These things are so subjective. In all fairness, I'm not a Glock fan either.
I'm not aware of any, but it would be interesting to see the relative percentage of accidental discharges involved with Glocks vs. 1911s, for example. In addition, it would be nice to see some sort of statistic examining if the lag and potential difficulty of flipping a thumb safety actually makes a meaningful difference during a confrontation.

I read some magazine article about how the DEA guy who shot himself in the YouTube vid was a veteran officer who had done dangerous undercover work, and that the vid destroyed his career as such since now everyone has seen him and knows that he's a cop.Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

Also mexican style seems to be condusive to blowing your dick off with a glock. Perhaps Glock foresaw this and decided it was a darwinian style safety...

Meh. Assuming you holster it properly, it's also conductive to a real fast draw and shoot.
Plus, I carry it a hair to the right so it'll gouge out my femoral artery. I'd prefer to die with my dongle intact if possible.Originally Posted by Cullion

I believe in the Second Ammendment, but it should apply to some people more than others.
