Re: Different Gun Question

Most of my handgun experience has been with double action revolvers although I have shot single action revolvers and single and double semi-automatic handguns. I have shot a friend's Glock, pretty much like a double action revolver assuming there is a round in the chamber, just pick it up, pull the fairly long and heavy trigger pull and repeat as necessary. Each time I shot with him the Glock jammed at least once. Not sure if he was shooting wimpy loads or what, but not good.

Seems like the double action revolver is about as fool proof as it can get. I can't think of a way it would fire without the trigger being pulled all the way back and held there.

I have read about some police depts only allowing their officers to carry double action only semi-automatic handguns to reduce the possibility of "accidental" firings. I doubt if any law enforcement agencies still carry revolvers?
