What does "Glocking" mean?

I was reading another forum (i know, i was stepping out on y'all :lol: ) and someone said "at least he was able to pull it out of the SERPA without glocking himself"
I tried to look around and figure out what glocking is but couldn't find anything that seemed relevant. Help a girl out?

I've never heard the term either, but I'd guess it refers to Glocks not having an external safety and people shooting themselves when drawing.

I have seen the term and C_Carson nailed it. It referrs to having the Glock hang on something as it is being drawn and shooting the operator or the by stander. There is a fair amount of forum chatter about Sherpas and AD's but mostly back in 2008. I looked up the sherpas before I purchased one for my Glock. I have never had a problem with it but then I don't put my finger in the trigger guard until the gun is pointing mostly downrange.

The SERPAs for our Glocks have never caused any headaches, even when practicing very fast draws. Our fingers stay straight and above the trigger guard when drawing, even after pressing the retention release lever in with our index finger. I'm just not seeing how people are having problems with the SERPAs and Glocks with ADs unless they didn't practice drawing with a unloaded before they tried drawing with a loaded firearm to get use to the why the holster is designed.

So in this instance they were probably referring to the guy's ability to pull his bun out of the holster properly and not shoot himself. Hmmm...seems like "glocking" would be a fine way to bleach out the gene pool a bit though.

The only reference I could find to it were videos of people shooting glocks, and I was like 'kay, does that mean I'm going to try to carbine some deer this fall?? :roll:

Thanks!

I can just see old Iver out in the woods "Heeeere deerdeerdeer, Heeeeeeeer deerdeerdeer!"

I'd use the garand instead, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to eat a buck that had been International Harvestered. :eek:

Here's some recent "1911ing" I have seen from a SERPA. Never had anything remotely close to this happening with my 1911 and SERPA, but I guess anything is possible:

That had to hurt. :oops:

A buddy I used to work with shot himself in the leg with a Ruger Blackhawk .44 Magnum while trying to be Quick Draw Mcgraw. Bad move indeed, said it never did fully heal up.

.44 Mag?! Did they ever find his leg? :mrgreen:

My husband had a negligent discharge with a .45 that wound up in his parents living room floor, with a brief pit stop in his leg. He survived, as did his leg, and he went on to serve in the army. The dr said he had no idea how he managed it but he threaded it right between the tibia and fibula. He still has the bullet, and the scars, if you'd like to see them.

The holster in that video isn't a SERPA. It is a 5.11 Thumbdrive.

In the video he says he was practicing with his Glock in a 5.11 Thumb Drive than he switched over to his Kimber in a SERPA.
