    Never did get around to installing it...never went back to worrying about the need either.
    i have always wondered about these, how much force it takes to depress that button. something about putting the safety on the trigger kinda seems bass ackwards to me, since you have to put your finger on the trigger to disengage the safety....yea.

    Agreed. Being serious about keeping my finger OUTSIDE the trigger-guard has always seemed the better idea. Poking around trying to find that button? No thanks!

    I have done some pretty dumb things in my life, but ruining my guns is not one of them.

    It seems to me that if you want an external manual safety on a gun, you should purchase a gun that is designed from the ground up, with an external manual safety.

    That just seems like a device which requires a major modification of the gun itself, and something I would never be able to completely trust on a defensive firearm.

    I have had a Siderlock on my Glock 19 for over a year. It works fine and I have never had a problem with it

    If you have ever used a shotgun with a push button safety on the trigger guard, it feels somewhat like that, I have fired many thousands of rounds from a Remington 1100, both hunting and trap shooting so it was second nature to get used to popping the safety off when coming on target to shoot. I practiced with the Glock unloaded a lot with the Siderlock before I carried it and never managed to pull the trigger unintentionally while taking the safety off. I installed it when I could no longer carry at work and had to holster and un-holster in my car several times a day.
    The safety is positive but does not require a lot of force to disengage.
    It is certainly not for everyone but it works fine for me.

    The Comminolli safety has been around for decades and is considered by most knowledgable people to be as reliable as the Glock itself. Maybe moreso since the advent of the Gen4's.

    I don't own one because I would just Israeli carry if I felt the need and be prepared to rack the slide to get the gun into action if need be.

    Edit: It's also unlikely that all those who own one are "morons".

    I think it is safe enough with one in the pipe, sitting between my legs in a smartcarry . That is friends is trust.

    According to Wikipedia:


    The Glock 17S is a variant with an external, frame-mounted, manual safety. Small numbers of this variant were made for the Tasmanian, Israeli, Pakistani and perhaps several South American security forces.[62] They are stamped "17", not "17S". They resemble, but are distinguishable from, standard Glock 17 pistols that have been fitted with the after-market Cominolli safety.[63]


    Glock 17 outfitted with a thumb safety was designed specifically for the Tasmania Police[68] and the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service[69]

    The first time I heard of the revolver safety with magnetized rings, Massad Ayoob was expounding its virtues.

    I would never own a personal protection firearm with a safety.

    The first Glock I owned had one of these things. (I don't recall the brand.) A guy bought the Glock, didn't feel safe with it and had the safety instaled. He still didn't think it was safe and wanted to change to a revolver. So I bought the thing for $250, I figured it was a good deal and I could flip it into something I liked. (At the time I hated Glock) I ended up liking the gun and held onto it until I brain froze and decided I had to ditch Glock and use only Sig. I've since seen the error in my ways and have returned to the Glock as a carry weapon but the safety (which I don't recall ever actually clicking on) isn't going to be making a return unless some other guy wants to basically give one away.

    So you don't own a social shotgun? How 'bout a rifle? GLOCK advertises three safeties; integrated trigger safety, firing pin safety & drop safety. Then there are revolver transfer bar safeties. What type of safety-free personal protection firearm do you advocate?

    I take it you have never tried firing your so-equipped Glock with only your non-dominant hand.
