I currently have a Walther CCP, which I love, but I am less than impressed with having an 8 round magazine. I was contemplating a PPQ, but the lack of a thumb safety frankly worries me.
I noticed that the PPQ, as with almost every striker fired pistol I see, has a trigger safety. The trigger safety on my Taurus PT 24/7 chews up my trigger finger, but I don’t see that it actually serves any purpose.
Absolutely everything that gets into the trigger guard is going to depress that trigger safety if the trigger is pushed into it. That is how at least one person I read about shot himself. He was reholstering his Glock and his shirt got inside the trigger guard.
So…is there a point to trigger Safeties? Do they actually do anything besides make your gun painful to shoot?
