I'm glad Mas responded. The "I'm not Rambo" response is exactly the problem. MOST gun owners are minimally (at best) proficient in the use of their weapons. I see them at the range and in gunshops all the time. For those people, a striker fired safety-less pistol is a TERRIBLE choice. Yet the media (advertising by the companies calling their product perfection), the proliferation of them in movies (how many bought a model 29 after Dirty harry or a Beretta 92 after Die Hard?), rap songs, and their adoption by police agencies (Give me a Glock. The FBI uses them so they must be the best) has insured that they are big sellers. I mean, these guns are actually marketed to the inexperienced shooter! "No safety lever to fumble with!" like it's such a hardship! Finally, the strongest advocates for them are generally younger shooters who grew up with them. The Glock has been around nearly 30 years now. These shooters know nothing else. They actually believe "a safety can get you killed" despite ZERO evidence to support that, while ignoring the MOUNTAINS of evidence that actually SUPPORTS a safety has saved countless lives. They remind me of a child sticking his fingers in his ears and saying "NAH NAH NAH! I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"
