Argh! "Don't Glock Yourself!"
« on: October 12, 2019, 03:03:40 pm »
Ok, striker fired pistols have been around since the dawn of the 20th century. And virtually all of those early striker fired designs had both an intuitive grip safety and a manual safety.  The Swiss Luger and the FN models 1910 and 1922 are well known examples. 

Todays ubiquitous Glock, is the striker fired pistol that most often comes to mind and is the subject of this video.
Have a look...   :coffee

    I have ran a gadget for years now. It is a really nice add to a Glock IMO. I wish there was something similar for M&Ps.

    I like the idea.  Seems really simple with making no permanent changes to your gun.  I have always questioned the thumb safety that is offered aftermarket, as it requires cutting a slot into your frame.

    I agree.  Seems like a good idea for Glock afficionados.   :coffee

    I like the idea.  I am already in the habit of putting a thumb on the back of the gun as I holster, so this would add functionality to an existing muscle memory action.

    But, I gotta be honest, $80+ to solve a problem I have not had in nearly 10 years of carrying a Glock seems kinda steep.  They need to cut that price point in half.

    TBH the gadget looks better made as far as fit and finish than the Glock it goes on. I know that is not a high hurdle to clear, but it is at least well made. Altho I am pretty sure you could cast/mold something just as functional for far less.

    If I could get a free weekend I do have a bridgeport mill sitting in the corner of my garage.

    I think it was part of a "Buy three - get one free" promotion a while back.  I missed it too.   :whistle

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
