Re: Different Gun Question

On your original question, the only disadvantage might be that you will be putting your fingerprints on file and spending some money. Other than that...if you want it, it shouldn't do any harm.

"I don't see much difference between a Glock and a revolver, in terms of safety. Neither have a safety."

Funny, I thought all the Glocks had a trigger safety. No finger on the trigger? It can't fire. They do call that a safety.
Revolvers also have a safety, every cowboy knew that you kept one chamber unloaded and kept that one under the firing pin, so that the empty chamber couldn't accidentally be fired, you had to advance past the empty first.

Safety? Condition 4, Condition 0, all the stuff in between is useless. The Glock safety and a trained finger work pretty well.
