Glock Leg

A local THiP shot himself in the leg. Les says that this is a good case for putting a New York trigger on a Glock. I think it’s a good case for keeping your booger-hook off the bang-switch.

Kidding aside, I do like the concept of the NY Trigger as it makes you more conscious of pulling the trigger and less likely to accidentally do so.

    For us non-gun-types, what’s a NY trigger? Stiffer?

  2. SayUncle Says:

    Standard glock trigger is about 5 pounds. New York trigger is about 8. So, stiffer is a good description. Just heavier.

    My cousin is married to an undercover NY Detective.

    He hates Glocks – carry’s a Sig himself – because he said cops simply don’t have the training to use it. (Up front, its worth pointing out he was a marine sniper during Desert Storm – guy is tough as nails) According to him, its not that Glocks are difficult to use – its that 99% of NY cops aren’t gun people and don’t like their guns and therefore are not comfortable with their guns. This results in a lack of control during a shootout where the cops keep firing away – cause they don’t train with the gun every week – as well as the routine failure to follow basic safety rules (muzzle control, keep your finger off the trigger). With a Glock, its even worse cause you need to depress the trigger to field strip it and every year a couple of cops forget to empty the chamber and end up with a round in their thigh (NY Trigger won’t prevent that).

    It happens to guys with lots of training, too. This guy was a Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq.

    I think the NY trigger came about because a bunch of NY cops transitioned from wheelguns to glocks without enough training. You need thousands of repeat practices until you get enough “muscle memory” to undo years of training that it was OK to put your finger on the trigger.

    I’m not a glock person or a glock hater, but the “pull the trigger” to fieldstrip is a bad idea, even if you have the safe gun habits of always checking the chamber upon pickup and always keeping it pointed in a safe direction.
