    LWD Siderlock Trigger Safety

    Don't think I've see a thread on this.

    Lone Wolf Distributors - Product Detail

    Putting a safety on a Glock. Sort of anti-Glock.

    Sometimes I wish there was a safety on my Glock. Then I say to myself, one of the reasons you purchased the Glock is because you desided you should never rely on a safety, and if you buy a pistol with a safety, you are relying on the safety.

    I stand by the thought that as long as the Glock is carried in a holster, you are safe. Every time I have this though, I do wonder if it is the though that will save my life in a SD situation or be the cause to a self-inflicted injury.

    The one thing I don't like about this trigger lock is that it requires you to break a rule about putting your finger on the trigger (trigger should just be use to fire).

    Any thoughts on the product?

    Seems like an additional , unnecessary safety to me.

    As soon as you grip a 1911 and disengage the manual safety...it's your finger that determines when you hear the 'bang'.
    Same thing happens for the Glock...it's a 'finger' thing.

    I would never (OMO) put that 'unnatural' trigger safety on any Glock of mine. Adrenaline can create real problems.

    Stay armed...it's a finger thing...stay safe!

    I agree with Ret. Putting your finger on the trigger before you are ready to fire is not a safe, or smart, thing to do. I have the same response for that thingy that goes behind the trigger on glocks as well.

    I just got back from 2 weeks of hunting, where, IMHO, a safety is a good feature, and part of the muscle memory / routine. So at first this product looked good. I don't have all the training and practice some on this forum have. So while I have more experience then the general public, as a novice, it is hard to treat different firearms differently. However, with the Glock vs say my hunting rifle, it comes down to the role the firearm is playing. The Glock is for SD in my world.

    I summed it up in my OP why sometimes I pine for a safety. However, it is clear to me, in a SD situation, I don't need an extra (safety) lever. As has been said by many, I trust I am the safety, and the gun will not go off unless I pull the trigger.

    BikerRN stated, "I personally think that is a very bad modification as it teaches you to put you finger too close to the trigger to make it safe or off-safe." http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...nst-glock.html

    I think BikerRN summed it up perfectly.
