I holster carry my G20(OWB) and G32(IWB), but I put a Cominolli Saftey on my G33 because I sometimes carry it with a belt clip.

After just getting an SR9 yesterday, I'd say save yourself some money, sell the Glock and buy the SR9. The tiggers are very similar except that it's shorter and crisper on the SR9. The manual safety is positive and sure. It's easy to use and it audibly clicks when moved from one position to the other.. It's also a good bit trimmer than a Glock, and trimmer than the XDm which I'm a big fan of. Anyone looking fro a polymer frame pistol, with or without using the manual safety, would do well to consider the SR series.

My opinion..and I own two Glocks...a safety on a Glock is a fix to a non-existent problem. Rod

Thank you, Constantine!

BTW, my shooting partner carried the G19 for years and completely agrees with my assessment. Now he carries the XDm 3.8 Compact, but prefers the feel and function of my SR9 over the G19.

Since the OP feels a need for a manual safety on his pistol, adding one to the Glock just doesn't seem practical or cost effective to me. And, rather than tell him it's an issue that really doesn't exist while he obviously feels the need, the 2 most logical ways to go, IMO, would be to sell the Glock and get an M&P with a manual safety, or get the pistol that is the most concealable anyway and comes with a manual safety, that being the SR9.
