How many Glocks will last 100 years.

LOL what training? Other than people who are too dumb to keep their finger off the trigger until it's time to shoot but that is more of a Darwin thing.

I've said it on here before. The P320 was the shortest lived handgun in my collection. Not even worth keeping for kicks and grins. Just felt CHEAP. I love my Mk25, 938, 1911 from sig, but damn... that 320...
I love my glocks, I think they're fantastic law enforcement weapons, but probably not great for standard issue military use. They should stick to their niche.
As far as the army picking the 320? good luck... time will only tell. I think there are far better options from Sig and other manufacturers. I mean, where was the M&P in all of this?!

Thanks from High Hat and Wasted ammo

M&Ps were eliminated from the trials, but no reason was given that I heard or read about.

That would be the 24th Generation Model 21.....even though its only 4yrs away...special edition for her it will be even more fugly.....but as slippery as the original Glock 17.

Good to know.

How do you do that? It would be good to know, so that I can avoid doing it :)

So, when you're covering a suspect who is face down on the pavement being frisked and cuffed by another officer, you are not going to have your finger on the trigger?

There are many times I feel there is a great need to have your finger on the trigger, but have to not shoot.

Have you ever been in a long car chase, followed by a foot chase and a good old-fashion knock-down drag out fight, then have to have precise finger control?

I wouldn't doubt many reports of officers accidentally shooting the homeowner are due to this defect in Glocks. He sees a dark shadow, brings the pistol up to defend himself then thinks, "That's not the suspect..." but the pistol has gone off.

With a Model 10, you can pull the trigger a long way and still call off the engagement safely.

Thanks from High Hat

Don't police forces order the glocks with 8 or 10 lb triggers? Glocks I know have clean trigger breaks. I think if you have taxed your fine motor skills somehow most guns are going to be subject to a misintended discharge if you are going to be that guy or gal.

Does anyone know if Sig, HK or any of the 1911 brands provide heavier trigger pulls on their firearms? Glocks aren't the only brand putting out guns without conventional safeties.

Forgot with the da/sa Sigs you get a decocker that gives a 10lb pull.

Sig and others with DA/SA actions first round DA is likely 9lbs or more.

My Gobment owned Glock22 has the standard (5.5lbs?) civilian trigger bar.

I'm sure S&W M&Ps were not allowed to be considered for the Army because of the extensive testing performed & published by Military Arms Channel mud test.https://www.full30.com/video/d6f21c8...089bcec9942c02

Worry not, Glock lives up to perfection with this ugly after-thought of a manual safety:

I see why it is safe! How in the world do you get your finger in there with the Black thing on the trigger?
