    Glocks do not have a traditional saftey. I have seen this sort of accidental missfire on the range.

    The "Saftey" is on the trigger:





    There is no "positive action" required other than hitting the bang switch with your booger hook to make bang....



    Either it was intentional or the guy is a ****ing moron; either way, it should be tried as murder.

    Why the hell are BART cops carrying guns anyways? It's BART, it's San Francisco, ffs!


    Why murder?

    Holy ****, it's on the trigger?! That's a brilliant place to put it.

    This is but one of the reasons I despise Glocks especially for police officers. "glock" is a big part of the equation why this man is dead and an officer's life is ruined.

    I don't blame you.

    I had no idea they even made a gun with a safety on the trigger.

    One reason I dislike Glocks and similar firearms like the XD.

    They've got another safety feature similar to field 1911's where the back of the grip has a pressure strip... But once again, if you are holding the gun it's fire-ready.

    Convince police to use something more stable... But it won't work, Glocks are delivered in boxes at far less than cost.

    So you really think it was an accident? Why would he even need to draw his gun in the first place?

    I'm willing to give the police the benefit of doubt in certain situations, but in this one and from the video I saw absolutely no reason for him to even draw his gun. The guy was down. The police certainly aren't infallible or incapable of doing wrong.

    The safety on the trigger indicates the user won't have his finger in the trigger guard unless he intends to fire. But when you put thousands of rounds downrange a month in practice, drawing and firing become 'automatic' and part of muscle memory and you can fire before you realize what you've done.

    I guarantee you it was an accident. Stupid hurts.... It makes no sense that this cop would purposefully do this.


    Here is another wonderful "glock" example:


    YouTube - DEA Shoots Himself




    Now that you know how Glocks work you can see how this happened,.




    Why would he draw his gun? I can't answer you that. I would not have if that were me, I lose my strong hand while grappling.


    I think he made a tragedy of preventable errors....

    This is one reason why prefer the 1911, Carried cocked and locked, and the thumb rides the saftey when firing, one must use a positive action to fire it.

    How the hell does this even work? How can that be considered a "safety"?
