    But it wasnt a loaded gun according to your description. You go around with chambered snap caps in a defensive pistol, in a carry bag.

As for me I dropped the Glock when using snap caps. When I went to grab it bam my finger hit the trigger and it when off like nothing. It was not even a complete pull back either. Two of my fingers went into the trigger guard in front of the trigger. I am not in the habit of dropping firearms but it happens. Not one person who shoots has not had it happen a time or two. All of my striker fires that do not have additional safeties are range guns now. No round in the chamber until it is point down range.
    Cool story, my dude.

    Never said I was carrying the gun. I was dry firing it with SNAP caps, dropped it, and it fired when I grabbed it. Now this could happen with any pistol if the hammer is cocked on off safety. Just think Glock types add a certain degree of danger.

    Your story sounds very made up. Who carries snap caps chambered in a gun in their bag. Were you testing it (with snap caps) for drop safety, or was it an accidental drop and you pulled the trigger.

    I am going to guess your mouth overtook your ass on this one. Here is where you just say "my post was a mistake" and stop. But I am guessing you will dig this hole deeper.

    I do know how it work. It has multiple safety mechanisms to prevent discharge from Drops etc. I could throw a glock down on the ground and it will not go off. Throw in the human element. Fumbling around, butter fingers, etc, and the trigger is a trigger. If it is pulled back it goes off. My personal go to gun is a CZ P-01. Very heavy double action pull on the first shot. Not something very easily accidentally pulled. Then if cocked has a built in decocker and hammer block safety.

    Glocks will never cock until you pull the trigger, and as you slowly pull the trigger back you disengage three safeties that are blocking your firing pin from ever hitting the primer

    you would have a better chance dropping a 9 mm bullet on the ground and a primer hitting a small pebble with enough force to ding the primer in igniter The bullet

    Now if you don’t have confidence in your finger or finger control in common safety, Glock probably is not the one for you I agree with that

    My big takeaway here today is that if you're ever thinking about shagging your pistol out of the air like a fly ball, a 5.5lb trigger is extremely dangerous but a 7.5lb trigger is perfectly safe.

I would rather carry a wheel gun than a Glock, and sure as hell prefer a properly manufactured 1911A1.

    I carry a SIG P320 variant and the trigger mass has issues and from what I have read was reworked to resolve the early issues. It looks like the OP subject has a trigger mod I would guess this is part of the problem. Second issue is in the range environment you need to make clear and safe and when you stow your guns in range bags they should be unloaded unless they are going into an EDC holster: in which case they should be point safely down range and chambered and holstered. My P320 has the new safety mods, if yours does not get it in asap. The aftermarket triggers typically make SIGs less reliable and become problematic in some way versus the oem triggers. I have heard the same for Glock
    but never will own one unless they make some ergonomic changes and a few others component changes I refuse to cope with in a pistol that I hang near my gonads. OP restore your oem trigger and ensure its not in recall, and stop stuffing loaded guns into your range bag..
    Im the OP but this didn't happen to me. This was a post in a sig Facebook group that I'm sharing here . Where do you see that he said he has a trigger mod?
