The accident occurred on September 16, just hours before the Pope arrived to meet the Queen. It is not known if Her Majesty was inside the palace when the shot was fired.


Cleaning a LOADED weapon?

SAS trained?

Oh, my!

Royal bodyguards favour the Austrian Glock 19, calibre 9 mm, which is relatively easy to use but has limited safety features.

Limited safety features........That tells a story!

I used a Glock 17 for some time and I never ever cleaned it while loaded. If the 19 is anything like the 17 then there are vertually no safety features except a bar which runs through the middle of the trigger (this is supposed to prevent the trigger catching and being pulled) there is no thumb safety and it is supposed to be safe if dropped but I never gave that one a try.

There are three safety features. Trigger, drop and firing pin. They all work very well but can be easily overcome with the application of biffness.

Aren't revolvers supposed to be more moron-resistant than autos?

So no bang-bang? That bad. If no bang-bang, hit chav on head with gun. Chav fall down and cry. Ha ha! Hate chav. Hate Yank more. Kill Yank.

More safety features than the old 9mm Browning (more even that the Hereford version with a decent-sized safety catch you could actually operate without needing to hunt around to find it). The Glock series of weapons all have a good safety rep. Bottom line is - if you pull the trigger when any weapon is loaded and cocked, it will go bang.

I'd suggest the Peeler is the one with the limited safety features . . . .

Guess what, revolvers don't have safetys and the trigger pull (depending on what type,mine was a Ruger Speed Six)is similar to the Glock or 226 DA.
RUCFOREVER is basically correct. Revolvers with safeties are rare.

Back in the dark ages I had a firearms dealer license and a DEA agent wanted a S&W M-40 because it had a grip safety and he had children at home. So I ordered it, he looked at it, decided he didn't .want it after all and I still have it in the box and unfired. Then the factory discontinued that model so I have a minty collector item.



By removing the grips, depressing the grip safety, a pin could be inserted to disable that safety feature.
