Why would anyone want an external "safety" on a Glock?

    I worry about my dogs and grandkids jumping on me. That "could" possibly get a trigger pulled if it were sitting in a soft material like the clip on suede holster or even in a fanny pack. I pocket carry my 26 but use the trigger block in a remora holster and am very aware of where those little hands and paws go, when my dogs jump up or a grandkid starts climbing.
    I know several guys who don't chamber their guns, I have never believed in that in the 4+ decades of carrying. My gun needs to have a round in the pipe so I know at least my first shot is leaving the barrel. Plus sometimes you can get a bad round and then you have a real problem, It happened at the range during a reload this passed week, it just didn't feed that one bullet. It was out of spec. I would not want to end up shot because I had an issue with chambering my gun.
    If the military and police can use safety's so can the average guy, a 1911 is the perfect example, the safety is off by the time you are on target.

    The original thread is 10 years old and before the recent response that had been a 5 year lapse.

    I'm thinking that a valid discussion would justify a new thread if folks are that interested
