Re: Different Gun Question

The point of the Glock patented trigger safety was never to lock out the trigger, as a conventional safety does. But rather, to ensure the gun is safe, meaning it can't go off by accident if dropped, etc.

And if someone really needs it, fast, they can't forget to disengage the safety.

Which is really what a safety is all about: preventing accidental discharges, nothing more. Finger's on the trigger? OK, then there's nothing accidental going on. Assuming someone didn't leave their pink Hello Kitty custom job where the kids would find it.
