Is DA/SA the Cure for Glock Leg Syndrome?


Is DA/SA the Cure for Glock Leg Syndrome?

Bob Owens at Bearing Arms remarks on what he sees as a growing trend among shooters: a move away from striker-fired pistols and back to double action/single action pistols for concealed carry. The reason is the extra margin of safety these guns give you with that first stiff trigger pull.

I personally think the cure for Glock leg is a grip safety, like on a 1911 or the Springfield XD line. But apart from reholstering, that DA trigger definitely gives you a extra margin of error when making a stressed-out “shoot or no-shoot” decision, which is exactly when you need it most.

I dunno. What do you guys think?
