I guess I was lucky. I pulled four years in the marine corps and always had a loaded weapon when on duty. did two of those years in security forces on ship and still always had a loaded weapon for duty and when we did drills. I would be a little ticked if I was givin a weapon and told I won't be getting any ammo.
Look I like glocks. I've owned Sig's, HK's, 1911's, S&W, and other fine pistols but Glocks have been a favorite for me. Handguns without safeties are not dangerous. Idiots are dangerous.
