    Would be worth a try, for sure.

    Has anyone preordered one of these? It looks like they'll be shipping before the end of the year.

    I like the idea, I just don't want to risk the proven reliability of my Glock for an unproven and redundant aftermarket safety. I'll let others be the guinea pigs.

    No, but I HAVE carried a GLOCK 19 every day for over a decade withOUT one. Guess it's just good luck (and making sure my trigger-finger is firmly placed against the right/front edge of the trigger guard) when reholstering. I imagine the BEST WAY to assure I don't shoot myself is to...go unarmed.

    It's been extensively tested by many prominent firearms guys including Craig Douglas. He has one on his sim glocks that he uses in ECQC. It's been years in the making. I had my doubts originally but there aren't any downsides to it. Worst case scenario is that it breaks. Even if it breaks your gun still functions exactly the same, you just lose the safety.

    I don't like this idea. You're required to be on it continuously to ensure that it works...not very safe, IMO. I think that the SIDERLOCK is a better option for those wanting to add an after market safety option.

    It depends on the quality of the production (not prototype) part. A Glock won't fire without the slide backplate, so before I try it, I'd like to see several thousand Joe Bobs messing with it without catastrophic failure.

    It's only purpose is as a safety while reholstering. Seems to be marketed towards appendix guys. Especially considering the creator is one of the guys who started the appendix revolution as we know it now.

    My CZ's and Sig solved the unsafe glock issue.

    The real story here is some citizen is following his dream of designing, manufacturing, and selling a product. Small business; the engine of America.

    What I wonder is, What happens if something does act like your finger and puts pressure on the trigger and once holstered you release this device? At this point there should still be pressure on the trigger and trigger safety, will the trigger be tripped and the striker fall?

    Too much device and not enough training.
    In training you'll have enough screw ups (hopefully not fatal) to learn what you NEED to pay attention to.
    Forget the device and get to training.

    Good luck.

    If something presses on the trigger you will feel it pushing against your thumb. Once you feel pressure you should stop.

    The Sliderlock is not ambidextrous, and it forces you to touch the trigger in order to go from "safe" to "fire." Quite possibly one of the worst ideas I've ever seen.

    The biggest issue I see with the Gadget is that it prevents you from forcing the slide into battery for a contact shot.

    If you are concerned about the safety of a Glock (or any other striker fired gun that lacks a thumb safety) then perhaps you should...buy a gun with a thumb safety. It is a real concern...I am very, very deliberate when I holster one of my Glocks. For duty use, where you might be trying to holster the gun while trying to handcuff a suspect, I can see where a gun with a thumb safety might be preferable.

    The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.

    Todd Green passed away recently. I imagine the gadget idea went with him. He will be missed in the community.

    I like it.

    VooDoo
    why you put your thumb there when re holstering a Glock ???????? all you are going to get is a broken thumb plus the bullet some place in your body.
