    I like that Glock's have a low number of parts, I do not want one more that could fail.

    I AIWB seems like a good idea. When i holster its slow deliberate and I look my firearm into my holster. I also put my strong side leg back and lean back when holstering. This keeps muzzles away from major artery (and the BOYS)

    While it isn't quite ambidextrous, it can be installed for access from either side (not unlike the magazine release.) As far as touching the trigger, the Glock trigger safety feature still works in its design.

    It's for holstering the gun. A lot of accidents happen with Glock pistols when putting it in a IWB holster. The trigger can be snagged and the weapon can fire. One reason I love my Springfield XDS9 is because of the grip safety. I can holster the gun with my thumb pushing the gun down into the holster so that the grip safety isn't pressed in. So if there was a snag the gun wouldn't fire anyway. This can happen to anyone. I'm extremely well trained with my guns and I'm very careful, but accidents can happen especially when holstering a gun with no safety. It doesn't make anyone less macho to have a bit more safety on a firearm.

    I'm constantly amazed at the nay-sayers in the gun community.

    Thank goodness some people think outside the box or we'd all still be shooting flintlock pistols. ("A percussion cap? That's stupid - what if it gets wet?")

    Read up on the Gadget and how it works. If it is not for you, fine, but to call it a stupid idea makes little sense to me. After you read up on it, please explain why it is a bad idea in terms of how it operates and how you think it may fail.

    I'll be waiting for the analysis....probably for a long time.

    When I first heard about it I immediately dismissed it. The more I looked into it and found out how much time, research and testing went into it, the more I realized this wasn't some dude making this in his garage. It was created by some of the leading and smartest dudes in the gun industry.

    Saying, "it's just one more part to fail" shows they didn't research it. I say that because that was my first thought.

    There isn't a legitimate disadvantage to it that I've heard. Like you said, if you don't like it or see a need for it that's one thing. But one of the biggest criticisms of glocks is the lack of an external safety and some people won't carry them because of that.

    I received my scd aka "gadget" and installed it on my carry gun. This is one of those products that you need to see/feel in person to understand but I won't ever carry a Glock without one now.

    That extra layer of safety when reholstering is huge.

    How would you be able to keep the slide in battery with your thumb and fire a contact shot with this installed?
    The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.

    I don't understand your phrasing. Are you saying, can I fire a shot with my thumb on the rear of the slide?

    No.

    I also cannot do that with any gun with a hammer. I have never heard of that technique.
