Yes, speeding because I want to get home to my daughter! Being careful, but yet courteous because he wants to get home to his daughter. It is just a win, win....

When I'm stopped, I have license and CCP out before he gets to the window, then it's "hello officer, I'm strapped" hand him the ID's. usually, just a warning. Sometimes he will run it, but 9 times out of 10, I'm getting a warning.

Long story short, when I was a kid my brother used to carry a pellet gun around under his seat in his pick-up truck. We got pulled over one night on Federal hwy, just South of Sample Rd. just after leaving the Doll house. Cop pulls my brother out to talk with him...I'm just sitting there, not doing anything, looking forward. I hear the cop say "don't move". I look to the left and he's drawn on me. The cop was a rookie and was probably just as scared as I was at that point. Any traffic stops since then, I've always told the officer if I'm carrying. The conversation goes a lot differently. my .02

Sig guy here buying a G43 this week. Looking forward to comparing it to all my p series and 1911 sigs.

Here in CT when your license is run they know if you have a ccw permit.

If I am ever pulled over, I will notify the Leo armed or not. With all that is going on, it's just a matter of respect and protects us both. My opinion only.

The first thing that comes to mind is the trigger reset on Glock. When you fire a round get used to the short distance to release the trigger and feel the click. You do not have to release the trigger all the way to fire the next round.

I was shooting my Glock for a while before someone told me this! Makes it a whole lot better and faster to fire another round and stay on target.

Default safety

whats the opinion on no safety hand guns? starting to look again and it seems like there are more out there with no safety. how easy is it to discharge a no safety gun as opposed to one with a safety?

Think of them as a modern revolver. All modern auto handguns particularly Glocks have safeties. A Glock has both a trigger safety and a drop safety and maybe another one that I am forgeting. The trigger safety keeps the gun from firing unless the trigger is purposely pulled and the drop safety blocks the firing pin from hitting the primer of the bullet if the gun is dropped. Also on a Glock the hammer is only partially cocked and pulling the trigger finishes cocking the hammer...

Your job is to ALWAYS train with ANY weapon keeping your booger digger out of the trigger guard and trigger till your ready to fire...

The answer is - it depends:

Depends on the gun - SAO (i.e. 1911 carried condition 1, must have a safety). DA/SA carried with hammer down - optional, DAO or striker - optional. May depend on the trigger pull weight.

Depends on how you carry - IWB or OWB. How easy/difficult is it to holster, remove from holster.

Depends on your training - have you trained to disengage the safety when you draw by "muscle memory" and it is 2nd nature

There is no right or wrong. it depends on each persons circumstance and above all else the safe handling of the pistol

Really depends on the user. Older guys who grew up with guns and those with .mil service who were trained or new user who just wants one around the house…just in case. But there are plenty available with all sorts of safeties including decockers.

But if you really want a Glock with an external safety get one of these

Don't assume a manual safety makes it safer.

Have a Gk43 and my wife has a RugerSR22 ...... first gun for her so I am very proud to get this far.....she was a die hard Lib till this election and she completely did a 180 and now has her CCW and voter ID card changed over to the right side!

My question is what laser sight to get for each weapon? Streamlight or Crimson Trace and why?

LEO tries to get around it by asking but just because they ask does not mean you need to answer. My standard reply to any such question about guns, drugs, etc. is "Nothing illegal". Done. Repeat as required.

OP, if you feel that you want to tell that's your business and most LEO will be very familiar with a glock.
Never volunteer answers.
