My post was a pitch perfect riposte of the OP's nonsense.

Quote:
That's a huge deal for Glock and hopefully that may help open the door for Glock with other major militaries throughout the world. It's good to see the British weren't afraid of the lack of a manual safety. Maybe our own military will get over their fear too.
Takeaways:

1) The Glock is currently used mostly by irrelevant militaries.
2) America's armed forces are afraid of pistols lacking a manual safety.

The first is true, the second is false.

The SIG P226 almost won the M9 trials and doesn't have a manual safety. It was adopted by the Navy SEALs, and the related P228 is in service as the M11.
