    Never had a problem with trigger pull/trigger control on the Glocks that were issued. Seems to be a TRAINING thing.

    By any chance does anyone here know what the On-duty carry policy of Pasadena Police is? This past weekend I saw a Pasadena motor officer carrying what appeared to be a 1911.

    That's a dangerous thing to do is use extra trigger pull as a safety enhancement. It’s funny to watch someone accustomed to a 7+ pull shoot something more reasonable and the gun goes off before they want it to, but that’s how accidents happen as well.
    In 1990, when we first went to Glocks from revolvers, some old gomers who weren't gun guys and pretty much had no business making any decisions about firearms decreed that we would have the eight pound triggers because it could help prevent NDs. Never mind that if someone has their finger on the trigger and gets scared, trips and falls or does something else where he tightens his grip in response, it's going to be with a lot more force than any trigger spring ever made.

    Thank goodness that smarter people finally prevailed.

    Failure drills are fine, I would rather have a rifle or a shotgun and slugs.

    30 rounds of 9mm can do a lot of damage especially comming out of an MP5...go for a failure drill two body and 1 head..

    I don't know if it is still offered, but the "New York Trigger" on Glocks has an 8-lb pull.

    Don't forget you can also carry a Glock 22 if you prefer.
