Glock 19 Gen 5

I have found my light weight 20 kicks just as hard as my heavy weight 12 when using buck or slugs. If you want to cut recoil look into the short shells. Mossberg has a 590 S that handles them as well as longer shells. Otherwise you need an Opsol adapter. As a bonus the mag tube holds more rounds. Feds are better than Aguila.

I carry a Hellcat and sometimes a Glock AIWB. Key is Kydex not leather or other soft holster material that may bend and catch your trigger. Watch what you are doing. Do not holster blind.

** also if you get a steel or a metal guide rod the front would be a little heavier the recall will be much much lighter, you’re shooting would be much more accurate for your Glock.

Well said. I have several Glocks and in 4 different
Calibers and heavier guides rods are better to help your
Recoil. Thank you.

I’m not sure why people associate Glock specifically with no manual safety…the majority of pistols sold these days, most if not all manufacturers, don’t have a manual safety.

And probably every other manufacturer make and sell boatloads of pistols with no manual safety.

Forgetting to decock a DA/SA or forgetting to safe a SA is even worse, also.

You are the trained marksman and pro; you are the safety. Muscle memory becomes available
much easier.

I think the Glock is the ONLY manufacturer who doesn’t use manual safety features in any handgun made… even G44.

All others made manual safety versions for cal 22 and 9 mm.

So, those are all non-Glock pistols that you can buy without a manual safety, yes?

2 Likes

Yes, you can buy with or without.

My point is, the Glock seems to be only one without manual safety for everything made by the Company.

Is it good? Is it bad?
For me doesn’t matter as long as I feel ok with such tool.

And I think it also shows why people associate Glock specifically with no manual safety.

I won’t EDC a pistol with a manual safety
I’ve spent so many hours practicing my draw with a Glock that I am concerned about accidentally engaging the safety. Several Instances, where my magazine has dropped while wearing it.

That’s why we appreciate different safety options from manufacturers.
I personally won’t carry handgun without thumb safety. Mentally I feel safer… :no_mouth:
