I love reading books with the character clicking off the safety of a Glock, or better yet cocking the hammer!

G18. Wonít prevent it from firing though, just choosing between one round at a time, or the whole mag at 1300 rpm

I remember seeing an ad for a Glock car holster where the unholstering action racked the slide by pushing it away from you. Seems like it could be applied to an OWB holster...maybe. You would unholster by grabbing the grip and pushing down, racking the slide and freeing it from the holster in one quick motion. It might be too cumbersome, but itís an idea. Donít own any Glocks now, but I have in the past. I used to carry a G27 IDF style with a Techniclip IWB.
