    Sure why not, I can already do this with my Walther PPS and I think you can do this with the Ruger SR line of pistols as well.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.

    well, I see one absolute problem with these.

    driving the slide forward when contact shooting. granted- this does not occur very often, but this device basically makes a glock impossible to use as a contact weapon.

    no thanks. if Glock does in fact start making these standard OEM equipment.... I won't be buying any more Glocks.

    ( I know I've seena video demonstrating the technique of driving the back of slide forward to hold it in battery when contact shooting, I can't find it now...)

    I like it.

    If you put one of these on your Glock and holster it, if something interferes with the trigger and you let go with your thumb it is still going to fire as soon as you let go. It is not another safety, it is another part for something to go wrong with.

    this is not the same video I saw before, nor is it as good, but it does show what I am talking about, though I dislike his thumb method, I like using the heel of the support hand, though I suppose practicing both would be best...

    The designer is Todd Green he has worked for HK, Smith, Sig and Beretta. Todd is a gun writer who tests and shoots thousands of rounds for new guns doing longevity testing.

    I know a lot f folks ask "Why should I get that?" As somebody who has put thousands of rounds through Glocks and holsters with the thumb on the back of the gun anyway, this device will greatly help in case of an "UH OOO"

    That is a good point Bob. Like they say, you can idiot-proof something, but nature always comes up with a bigger idiot.

    Some sort of aftermarket device on the gun that interferes with the gun firing. It would be great when you wanted to work, but if it decides to work when you need the trigger to be pulled in the striker to fall, you are a dead man.

    I'll pass.

    This product has been a couple of years in the making. For those that follow pistol-forum.com, this is relatively old-hat news. It has been followed by a huge number of members of that forum, so I think the market is there. Not being a Glock shooter, this means little to me, but I can see the desire for such devices. Especially among some more nervous LEAs.

    Personally, I dont see a need for this device. Glock pistols have been used now for decades in the military and LE sectors with an excellent record. I certainly would be reluctant to modify the action of such a reliable and safe weapon based on a theoretical. If you don't like a striker fire weapon, simply don't buy a Glock. It's that simple.

    I certainly don't forsee Glock making this modification at a factory level, nor endorsing the post-sale modification of their pistols.

    A few unfortunate souls have found out the hard way that the "Safe-Action" trigger is easily defeated by a shirttail. That is why I am not a fan of "no-look" holstering. Still, I have no need for this item.
