Bought my first Glock. A Gen 4, Model 26. It's been a blast to shoot and it is now my primary CCW. However, it is also my first concealed carry that doesn't have a manual safety. Can't convince myself to carry with one in the chamber. I'd like to hear other opinions from those who are more brave.

Welcome to the Glock Forum and rest in the fact that thousands of officers and civilians have carried with one in the chamber and haven't had any issues.

Hello, Bsinc17, and WELCOME to the Forum!

I have carried the Gen3 G26 for several years now, and absolutely love it. I have total faith in the intrinsic safeties (she don't go boom unless you press the boom-button), and have never had an issues carrying chambered. I even shoot her for IDPA!

Nice choice there, and welcome to the family.

Cheers!

Welcome :)

Your trigger finger is your BEST safety. ( glock won't go bang until your trigger finger makes that happen - as long as you keep it in a quality holster)
AMEN to that statement. No finger on trigger till your ready to fire, no matter whether its a Glock or not.

Welcome! Yes, learn proper trigger control (i.e. keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot) and you will be fine. Make sure you have a holster that properly protects the trigger as well. In fact I think not having an external safety has made me more vigilant about handling my weapon properly.

Had the same concern before I started carrying a Glock for CCW. Then it dawned on me: 1) When the firearm is in holster, the trigger and trigger guard are completely covered. 2) You have no business taking the firearm out of the holster unless your intent is to either use it or unload it.

Soon as I realized the above, putting one in the tube was not so intimidating. But pay attention when you go to holster or unholster your weapon to avoid accidental discharges!
