Army special forces. I have seen them carrying glock 17s .


CAG (Delta Force) uses the Glock 22.

So why is it that a military won't use a pistol without external safeties but police forces will?

Yep. As far as I know SFOD-D or Delta currently use Glock 22's among other things.

Words like that are generally typed in accordance with standard English orthography, regardless of how the owner of the name chooses to do it. For example, Adidas chooses not to capitalize the "A", but most other people do when writing their name, because the rules of English trump their marketing strategy. Look in articles written by professionals, with professional editors (such as magazine or newspaper articles), and you will find that GLOCK is generally written as "Glock" and adidas is generally written as "Adidas", and so on.

I remember some Tongan military on their way to Iraq coming through the base I was working on were carrying Glock 26's. Which was funny as hell considering how big these dudes were. The 26's disapeared in their bear paw sized hands.

GLOCK 19
The all-round talent

The GLOCK 19 is ideal for versatile use
through reduced dimensions compared with
the standard pistol size. With the proven caliber
of 9x19, it has found worldwide distribution in

security services. In addition to being used as a

conventional service weapon, it is suitable for concealed carry or as a backup weapon. For instance, many of the elite pilots

of the USAF trust the GLOCK 19 for their efficient defense in emergency situations.

Well, if its a fact, I'm sure you can find some proof to back that statement up. If only you had said "most numerous pistol in the hands of LE and militaries worldwide"... Which still wouldn't be a GLOCK(for you pansies bitching about how to type it), it would be a CZ75 style handgun.
