I own a Glock 20, and two Ruger P series hammered SA/DA's. I submit that that my Glock is not nearly as safe to carry with a round in the chamber as the Rugers since there is no safety on it. Not only that, but the trigger travel to fire the Glock is much shorter than Rugers (first shot). As a result, I will never carry the Glock with a round in the chamber unless it is in my Blackhawk holster, which completely protects the trigger from accidental contact. Also the Blackhawk has a press/release latching system that prevents the Glock from being drawn until the latch is depressed. I have also owned a number of revolvers, all of which I have sold, since I find loaded revolvers just as unsafe as the loaded Glock Also, I can chamber a round in a Glock (or any SA) in less than a second, I cannot do this with an unloaded revolver. When you read about a gun "accidentally discharging" I bet you will find it is either a Glock (or other striker fired) handgun without a safety, or a loaded revolver. In fact, if you read any case in which a child is accidentally shot, I submit you will find that it is either a Glock (or striker fired handgun without a safety) or a loaded revolver. This is why I like the new Ruger striker fired handguns, most of them have a safety, a loaded chamber indicator, and an internal key lock. Glock has none of these features. I know my thoughts on this may be controversial. I invite anyone to comment without any concern for insulting me, since I am too old to be insulted anymore.
