see i know i can carry my 1911 , parachute into a ocean crawl through jungle cocked and locked , did so for years , and if you look at the mechanics you can see why .
i'd never feel comfortable do that with a glock ..
they are NOT forgiving when swapping mags with your finger in the guard ( DUH!!!!!) , the slide has a section where you can "walk" the trigger safe and disengage it ( maybe pre engage is a better term ??) , you drop a slide on a full clip , its then maybe you get a bang
i do not beleive this can be done by accident , people constantly cocking the weapon dropping the mag and cycling it can .,. ( stuffing about like a idiot we call it here ) i played hard with it, i did not trip it , i do think its possible
you can feel the mag safe via the trigger safe , same as the slide safe/ disconnector when they are actioned
all them bits the mag detector/disconnector/slidesafe/trigger safe/and their cross conections , add a dirty gun with soot build up or wear and its chances of going bang increase
what i mean , is you can fiddle with it and keep playing it you could create the environment to have a accident
day to day use , no i dont think so , ya'd have to be stuffing about with it to do anything , you can do the same with other brands too if your a idiot ..
only guy i know shot him self accidently here was stuffing about too , wont admit it , but folks where there
the guns always live and the horse always kicks
yes we can have fun with them but there far from toys and folks forget that and when caught out are embarassed
all tech and gripes aside
i'm getting one as a trainer and plinker for the grandies
i trust them to never handle a gun thats loaded unless they are ready to shoot it
