    Don't rely on any safety...especially the Glock safety because there isn't one


    Keep your prostate feeler out off the bang switch.

    Trigger safety is technically an external safety

    yea, the glock weakness is anything that gets inside the trigger guard.

    Uh, I beg to differ. I've shot Thousands of rounds of reloads through all of my glocks and I have never had a KB.

    My buddy has put over 25k of reloads through his glock and has NEVER had a KB.

    KB's happen because of poor maintainence, unreliable or poorly installed aftermarket parts and bad reloading practice.

    As far as holstered Glocks, I've been packing a glock for 10 years CCW with one in the chamber. And I holster and handle a hot glock every single weekend when I compete.

    Where does the bad rap about reloads in a glock come from? I hear people always bringing it up, but all it usually includes is a quick jab @ glock.. no proof. :dunno:

    Are they .40 S&W? Because that's the infamous round for the glock kB. And if they are, then you obviously pay great attention to case selection, and how much powder goes in each shell. Granted the overwhelming majority of reload-related kBs involved over-charged reloads or weak casings -- basically saying operator-error -- the glock does seem to have more kBs in similar circumstances when compared to other firearms. So the lesson of "be more careful" is true, but that does not excuse the glock for a verified weakness.

    Yes, but we all make mistakes. I choose to avoid this mistake by using factory ammo, only -- however even that is not a 100%.

    That does not make it safe for everyone. By your own admission, you would have training and experience above and beyond the average user. Even so, glock does not recommend carrying with a round in the chamber. Your personal choice may dictate otherwise, but it is a decision each must make on their own.

    now of interest to me, and somewhat on-topic.... what are your thoughts between an american eagle (federal) and winchester round for average range-duty (where cost would be a concern -- but obviously not to the point of reducing safety)? This website seems to think the difference in primers signifgant to warrant not using federal. In my 12ga I generally use federal, and have been quite satisfied. I have approximately 1000 rounds through my Glock 22 (all federal) and again I am thus-far satisfied. But could this be a ticking timebomb?
