    My Glocks go boom every time I want them to, and don't fire when I don't want them to. Why modify perfection?

    Back on topic, the gadget for the Glock seems like a pretty straightforward safety device.

    I'm surprised that this thread now has 200 posts.

    Some feel it's unnecessary. That's fine. However, some guns have models with and without safeties - think Shield. I can't imagine 200 posts on that particular topic.

    Gun aficionados are an ironic bunch. They love innovation only so long as it fits their particular view on what a gun should be; otherwise, they are often unwilling to acknowledge the utility of something new.

    I actually read all this topic while fixing the parents computer.

    Half this topic is people commenting "keep the booger finger off the trigger", "I don't need a safety", "perfection", a slew of other stupid comments.

    The device is to aid in no look holstering, or just general safe holstering.

    If people would read they would know that this is not an actual safety as it disengages as you take your finger off it.

    Is day the ratio of uninformed comments is 1-5, maybe 10 if the smart ones were talking.

    I'm on Tapatalk so I have 20 pages to go through.

    It's ingenious for sure and that first line of safe reholstering because you don't get a second chance otherwise.

    But if I did want to add a safety for any reason I'd get the manual safety kit.

    "But why get a Glock if your just going to add an external safety?"

    Because I like how they shoot, feel and how light they are compared to some other comparable guns that IMO have a terrible grip texture, grip size, takedown.

    I can see the use for this, the others are obviously uninformed because half of this topic is stupid comments and one like this pointing out what its use is for.

    I'm unclear as to how repairing your parents computer qualifies you to insult, demean & provide your clearly sardonic observations. Ironically, not directed toward the thread topic, but rather, on YOUR opinion of the FOLKS (fellow DC Members) with whom we share this forum. Perhaps there's a computer-tech forum filled with brilliant people who...agree with you?

    Sidneyious, GT makes a good point, I think you should tone down insulting DC members because they have different views than you.

    For those worried about having your thumb on the rear of the slide, allow Tom Givens to educate:

    I've had the "gadget" on my Glock 19 for a few weeks now. Easy to install, boringly simple to use.

    Even the smallest rearward movement of the trigger is felt in the thumb via the "gadget". If I've done my job reholstering slowly, safely, and deliberately, the odds of something possibly interfacing with the trigger or finding its way into the holster are vanishingly slim. The "gadget", while not making the reholstering process any closer to foolproof, does add one more level of awareness, one more check and balance against having a negligent discharge. Has nothing to do with the ego being wrapped up in our ability to control our trigger fingers.

    After actually inspecting and using one, I have no concerns about it failing. It's a very simple, solid piece of machining. And if it does fail, it "fails" in the same way an escalator fails its way into becoming stairs.

    Will likely purchase another for my Glock 17.

    All this gadget does is teach a bad habit. Leave Glocks alone.
    If you're offended by anything I say, I'm offended that you are such a sissy.

    What habit would that be?

    Holding your thumb on the gadget and relying on it as a safety when Glock has all the safety you need if your finger is off the trigger.

    I'm referring to the gadget in the OP.

    To be fair, I don't think it's meant to or being advertised to act like a traditional safety. It simply gives the user tactile feedback of movement of the striker (effectively the trigger) should something inadvertently end up inside the trigger guard upon reholstering. It's not a replacement for safe gun handing, but rather an added layer of things that can be observed when returning the gun to the holster.
