someone tell this guy to quit being cheap and buy a holster that fits the pistol. Not a universal one.http://www.itstactical.com/warcom/f...n-cause-accidental-discharges/comment-page-1/
Now of course the holster sucks but can someone describe to me a scenario of a glock not being discharged with its "safety" on where without it it would be discharged.
Before you start getting red. I love glocks. Own few of them but I think they are either for open carry or for winter. because other than plastic (which prints) holster I think its dangerous. Yeh crossbred and others is great leather. But leather will go soft one day.
yeh yeh eyh the best safety is in your head
It MIGHT not have happened with an XD, grip safety would have needed to be pressed as well as the trigger safety on the XD.That question might actually matter if people with brains expected that safety to do anything useful, it really doesn't. I'm not sure if its true or not, but I actually heard that it was intended more of a drop safety than anything else- to keep the trigger from moving under its own inertia if the gun was dropped.
This "problem" you are trying to invent isn't exclusive to Glocks, either. a Kahr, an XD, an M&P, etc, could have all discharged with a similar act of lunacy behind the gun.
How DARE you expect people take responsibility for their own actions! That's not how we do things in a civilized society, we blame the people that make money for the behavior of idiots.<ERMAHGERD>

People shoot themselves because they are ****ing morons; Gaston Glock didn't sneak up on this mental midget and pull the trigger.
He looks like the kind of dumbass who would pour gasoline on the grill to start it, then blame the can manufacturer for poor design after he was discharged from burn unit.This.
When you blame the object, you remove the responsibility from the dumbass doing the dumbass thing. Whether it is using a gun while committing a crime or shooting himself because you are using garbage equipment.
The bullet should have skipped his leg and went straight for his junk based on holster decision.Anyway, even if the concensus was that the holsters was not a piece of shit, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that that rig was unserviecable and should have been replaced a long time ago. This guys sounds like a moron.
+1The holster in question is not a G&G, it's a Galco JAK-202.... its a piece of shit. It has "gay" written all over it.
Anyone who admits to owning a Galco has something wrong with him.QUOTE]
I disagree. While I am aware that they do have sell some holsters that are total crap, I have a King Tuk that is higher quality than a SuperTuck, a Miami ClassicII that is great and a Royal Deluxe Horse hide that is decent
It is a striker-fired pistol -- no hammer.Silly question here but here goes......I have never fired or hendled a glock but from the research I gather it is a hammer strike pistol with no external safety....only a button on the trigger. Anyone ever herard of this type of incident coming from a double action revolver? I know my double action trigger is quite stiff so i'm pretty sure I'd realize if I were holstering my gun and caught the trigger and the hammer started to come back......and when I holster my sp101 I watch the gun go into the holster as i place it in just to be sure. Is a glock trigger pull that light that if you caught the trigger you would not notice it being depressed?
Probably taken after the fact. Police or insurance paperwork.I'm curious how he got that chopstick? to illustrate the angle of the shot so fast while still bleeding. With a PROPER fitting holster that COMPLETELY covers the trigger guard this would not have happened. He should have seen this coming unless of course he was blind.
This whole thread has been a dupe. Video and duscussion all repeated from last year.
That being said the conclusion was that the holster was not made for a glock. I think it was a beretta 92 holster.
The guy was an idiot.
The extra leather left when using the smaller gun is what caused the firing. Had nothing to do with glock safeties or quality of the hoster.
I wear a canvas holster (that's considerably softer than leather)....nary an issue with M&P45 or P229. Like Mike said, pay attention and this is a non-issue.People who have non shit holsters (leather or kydex ) that actually pay attention while they're re-holstering don't have this problem.
I've used an Uncle Mikes holster for about 3 years with no problem. I just now replaced it with an Infidel from Comp-Tac.I wear a canvas holster (that's considerably softer than leather)....nary an issue with M&P45 or P229. Like Mike said, pay attention and this is a non-issue.
