Can't stand them myself. Give me a SA/DA automatic any day of the week. Mind you, I think the NYPD needs to be switched back to .38 police specials, but that's for a different reason....

I'd still wager it is a small percentage of the overall numbers in the US armed forces. And an even smaller percentage of people making the inane rules who have BTDT.

I personally dislike Glocks because of this, and the fact that it's never truly "safe" compared to a firearm with redundant safeties. Even my commie PA-63 has a thumb safety with decocker and the soviets were renown for not putting manual safeties on their pistol.


Depending on how you get an M&P, there's no manual safety on them either. Mine is completely devoid of external safeties. The only thing I have is a magazine disconnect, which prevents the gun from firing without a magazine in the well, even if there's a round in the chamber.

There's no de-cocker or anything along those lines.
I used to shy away from anything that lacked safeties, but they're like anything else- if you take the time to practice and learn them, you're going to be just as safe as the guy with safety redundancies.

A magazine disconnect has no place on a duty gun.


I agree. But that's what the dept. uses and it wasn't my decision to make.

In fact, from what I've found, if you want an M&P WITHOUT the disconnect, it has to be specially ordered.
