Dude glock do not have a "two trigger" system, its called a passive safety meant to make the glock drop safe. If there is a foreign object in the trigger it will fire.
Nope. Only partially true. If there is only a slight pressure and not full squeeze of both triggers the gun wont fire.
The presence of foreign object will result in fire if that foreign objects pressure is enough to fully squeeze the socalled passive trigger system.In real life situations while the glock is tucked into the right side of your jeans chances of such accidents is minimal.
Holsters are made for a purpose. Yes. But in a covert work especially when yiu are in plain clothes, holsters wont be a practical thing, also tucking pistols into shoes and all those things arr comfortable only in movies. In real life you are taught to tuck the pistol into right side of waist under tge shirt and i had never heard of any accidental firing in doing so.

This might have been true 30 years ago but you can get low-vis EDC holsters easily nowadays, tucking a pistol into your waistband is not only stupid it's impractical.

And it's a fact that the Glock specifically is designed to be holstered at all times when not needed, the makers will tell you that.


Again, people need to stop making excuses for the indefensible, the waistband stuff is amateur and illiterate behaviour.

And low-vis EDC holsters are easily available to the soldiers here in India?

Buy them on amazon.com.
They’ll have to pay a ridiculous amount on customs duty (40-45% of its value for most goods), which becomes extremely unaffordable. I remember @AVINASH4061 sir saying on one of his podcasts that he was lucky his wife worked in Air India on flights to the US, so he was able to purchase his gear at reasonable prices(already out of reach for most jawans and leaving only officers who can afford it).

Yes if you dont pull "both triggers" the gun wont fire, its a passive safety which means the operator does not have to worry about disengaging any kind of safety before pulling the trigger. It was never meant to be a manual safety, it was only meant to make the gun drop safe which means you can drop it from a building and it wont fire. You point and shoot, no manual safety. This makes trigger discipline and firearms safety very very important while operating a glock. Holsters are made to cover the trigger guard, so no foreign object or even you finger gets into the trigger guard and cause a negligent discharge.
Inside the waist holsters and new techniques like appendix carry are especially meant for concealing a gun.

Dont know it is taught in military academy but in various police academies holsters are not issued while training. Anyway thanks to youtube many trainers are askjng cadets to hold the pistols just like official site of glock says how to do or like many other sites says to hold. Its not a leap forward but something is slowly changing

Ironically most SF veterans will agree with the critisism (most) on this thread.

Conversely training of a Man will always work within the confines of tactics and equipment which are inturn dictated by National strategy.

No national SOF strategy = mediocre training infra and Medicore kit = results in confused selection and utilisation of resources.
