I would not have guessed that.

May be time to check some stores.

Not that I "need" another Glock :ROFLMAO:

Call me weird, but keeping the trigger safe as the one vital thing about the pistol in time of stress suits me fine.

Umm, think what you wish but if a semi-auto handgun does not have a half-cock hammer notch and a frame safety or a slide mounted hammer drop firing pin block safety I don't want it.
I'll settle for my Makarov with the Simson-Stuhl safety mod, my 3rd gen S&W or my Berretta .32 thank you very much. admire the CZ75 myself.
go drop a glock!

All excellent choices.

I'm partial to the Makarovs myself.

Glock is "drop safe," so again, with the Glock, it all boils down to keep that trigger clear unless and until it's time to shoot. That one all-important thing.

And I'm not critical of those who are new to shooting or who have been shooting for decades, who choose pistols with safeties. Why would I be? Many far better and more experienced than I choose them.

Based on this video, I think the salespeople ought to point out to potential purchasers of Glocks and similar that, hey, just so you know, there is no manual safety on this firearm. That some don't is no big deal to me though. More "like new" Glocks behind in the case is fine with me.

First, if a salesman is not explaining all the ins and outs of any firearm to a perspective buyer, shame on them.
Just wondering how many revolvers they get returned, seeing how they don't have an
external safety.

You say, "I would not have guessed that."

That's because it's not true.

That's just some greedy people making up a story to get hits on YouTube.

Glocks, new and used, are selling like hotcakes.

Just as they should.

Well darn. Thanks Logos. You ruined my dreams of cheap and plentiful twice-sold but never-fired Glocks.

. . . . Glock is "drop safe," so again, with the Glock, it all boils down to keep that trigger clear unless and until it's time to shoot. That one all-important thing.
Is that goofy video still around? Wow! Well, let me offer this: I've been working on and building Glock pistols for almost 18 years, now; and, first of all, UNLESS THE TRIGGER IS PULLED, every Glock striker is under CONSTANT 75 (+) percent tension.

Second, the performance and reliability of the striker safety is largely dependent upon the integrity and performance of the TRIGGER SAFETY. (Some of you guys must remember the federal governments’s HUD Glock safety tests, right! You know, the government safety tests that Glock pistols FAILED!)

Third, Glock pistols’ so-called ‘drop safety’ is NO DROP SAFETY AT ALL; or, at least, NOT in the historical sense of the term. That shelf the wings of the trigger bar ride in is, in reality, an anti-binding mechanism. It’s sole purpose is to prevent the trigger bar’s ‘sear kick-plate’ from becoming lodged behind the striker lug when the pistol is dropped.

Rather than preventing a Glock from firing this so-called ‘drop safety’ actually allows a Glock pistol to CONTINUE TO FIRE after it has taken a hard fall.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PRINCIPAL SAFETY MECHANISM ON EVERY FACTORY-STANDARD GLOCK PISTOL. IT IS THE LEVER ON EVERY GLOCK’S TRIGGER-FACE. WITHOUT THAT LEVER BEING KEPT IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER, A GLOCK PISTOL IS COMPLETELY UNSAFE TO USE. PERIOD, NO IF’S, NO AND’S, NO BUT’S!

EXACTLY! (An astute observation!)

And you know that 'Dizzy' ain't buying them back for anywhere near the original purchase price, right! ;)

So if we neglect to maintain our weapons properly they can become unsafe?

Wow!!!

Thanks for that amazing revelation.

This is overwhelmingly absurd.

If you had so much as the slightest idea of how a Glock pistol really works you wouldn't think so; but, as things stand now, you are a good 15 or 20 years behind numerous authentic Glock experts—All of whom know better than you how a Glock pistol actually works and have proven it many times over when you, rather obviously, weren't either around or otherwise involved.

You're just plain wrong; and, were you a smarter person, you'd know when to be quiet, take a lesson, and learn; but that would probably be asking too much, now, wouldn't it. ;)
