    Glock Saftey......

    I got this email the other day and thought I would share......

    Subject: Fwd: Glock (Officer-SAFETY)

    SENT TO ME FROM THE DEA..............




    It happen one in a million but it happen FYI


    “What the hell was that?!?” she said. It took me a half a second to realize that my gun had just gone off…on my hip…in its holster. My wife and I had just finished breakfast at our favorite café and got into the car.
    Me being the passenger, I rotated my torso to the left to fasten my seatbelt like I always do. When I straightened again, my Glock 19 discharged, blowing a 9mm hole through my pants, underwear, the leather seat and bottom of the car’s door frame.
    The bullet nicked my hip, but the wound is nothing a bandage couldn’t cover.
    So what went wrong? Guns never go “Bang” all by themselves.
    After ensuring I wasn’t hemorrhaging profusely and didn’t have to make a dash for the hospital, I stayed seated in the car as my wife came around to my door and opened it. I undid my belt and slid the Galco JAK202 Slide Belt Holster, with the gun still in it, off my belt. Why it went off was immediately apparent.

    This is a medical condition known as "Glock Leg". I know a lot of people swear by Glock, but I'm not one of them. I just don't trust a gun without a manual safety. It's way too easy to hit the bang switch accidentally.

    I'm a big subscriber to "the safety between your ears", but as in Les's post, equipment can fail causing an accident. Was it the holster, the gun, or the user? Maybe a bit of all three was to blame, but if the gun had a manual safety engaged would the subject have a hole in his leg?

    That would have scared the shit out of me. I'm glad he wasn't seriously injured, that could have been much worse. How often does this happen?

    Well, you hear about Glocks going kaboom, stove-piping, and generally malfunctioning all the time. But you also have to account for the shear number of Glocks out there, probably more than any other brand and with that many in use of course some are going to malfunction. It is after all a mechanical device with moving parts, nothing mechanical is infallible. There are reports of Glocks failing to cycle due to limp-wristing or during combat movement, but then again you get people who are completely satisfied with their Glock, heck, a lot of law enforcement use Glocks exclusively. You've also got the whole problem they had with the 1st Gen Glock 22 that didn't fully support the .40 S&W cartridge and tended to go boom, of course some of those instances were caused by reloaded, over-pressured rounds or lead fouling in the barrel. So it seems to me a hit or miss issue based on certain circumstances. Still wouldn't own a Glock myself, but I won't begrudge anybody their choice of firearm.

    Yes, that was a disaster and could have been way worse. I was not a glock fan up til a couple years ago, and like Sasquatch the biggest dislike is the lack of an external safety. I did install a sider lock on mine though which does add an external saftey (so to speak) and it does not slow down the first shot time as the safety is right on the trigger, it can be found at http://www.siderlock.com/. I do believe many folks know how to handle their firearms, but do become complacent and tend to lose a little respect for such a poerful tool. Glock is not my favorite but is up their on my list, and for those that carry locks, I do recommend this safety. I have never had a problem with them on any of my 6 glocks. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks Les, that is a great product! I wonder if it will fit a S&W Sigma? How much do they cost? Been thinking about getting a Sigma for a range gun because they're cheap, just couldn't get past the Glock style with no manual safety. But if one of these will fit it I might be back in the market.

    I'm not sure. I'll do some research and find out. I am sure that because there are such similarities, one could retrofit these to work, if there not out there for them already. When i got mine they were right around the $70 range.

    Yeah, I wasn't able to find anything about the Siderlock and the Sigma.
