    Well, I've dropped my Sig a few times and never had a problem. Other than a bank teller that nearly fainted when my holster broke in the bank and the Sig went tumbling through the vault. That was kinda funny when I was done cursing at the holster...

    Don't drop your gun!
    j/k. Glock makes a big deal about how safe their action is. Truth is, just about any firearm with a firing pin block (non-striker) is just as safe as a Glock. California has a drop test all guns must pass to be on their "approved" list.

    Gun dropped in a bank????

    You droped your gun in a bank vault, and didn't get arrested?


    Banks in Texas and New Mexico are on the list of places that are off limits
    for licensed guns!

    WoW!

    That is pretty cool. In NC, guns are not allowed in any financial institutions.

    Even if the owner of the guns he is carrying has a concealed permit? At least in VA, carry in financial institutions is off-limits if the carrier does not have a concealed permit, open or concealed.

    Angry Places off limits to concealled carry permits

    Banks, government buildings, hospitals, places that sell alcholic beverages in
    any form are all specifically listed in the law as places that a holder of a New
    Mexicio "CCW" license is forbbidden to go while carrying a firearm.

    The law does not say anything about criminals or gang bangers. So, if you are
    a gang banger who doesn't have a CCW license, you can carry your gun into
    any of those places. But because I have a CCW, I can't.

    Makes no sense.

    Not only that, manufacturers have to pay a great deal of money to get them "tested" and any slight difference in the pistol must also be payed for to the DPRK(Democratic People's Republic of Kalifornia) DO"J"(Department of "Justice") to be "tested" as if it was a different pistol altogether. The DPRK "tests" are merely a heavy fee to allow manufacturers to conduct legitimate business in the socialist territory. The DPRK's bullshit regulations are not limited to firearms either. Some manufacturers(such as Springfield Armory with their 1911's) use a lighter firing pin to allow for sale in the DPRK.

    Even without a firing pin safety, most pistols are usually not that more dangerous to drop compared to the ones with the butterfingers safeties. No weapon is safe to drop, even if it won't discharge.
