Re: Are Glocks Safe?
I had a Glock 22, and I never felt unsafe. It was the first pistol my son shot. I have since sold it, mainly because the slide pinched my hand from time to time. It is the only firearm I have ever owned that has pinched me. So in that regard yes, Glocks are unsafe.
As far as the Glock 22 blowing up, I read the warning and never ran anything hot in it, and inspected the weapon after cleaning it each time (I do that with all of my guns). I never saw any signs of damage, but I never felt safe enough with it to risk anything spicy.
As far as glock's having accidental discharge and no safety, well each and every gun comes with the ultimate safety. Your noggin. If you use that, and know what your gun can and can't do, every gun is safe. I holstered my G22 many times and it never went off. I even dropped it once, it banged back of the slide first, and nothing happened, so in that regard Glock's are as safe as everyone else.
