I'm a little confused about something in the manual. This is my first gun, but I've been to the range before and fired a Glock 17 with no problems.

The manual states when loading the weapon, to have the trigger in the rear-most position by dry-firing the gun (well it states to store it this way too). Does it -absolutely- have to be in the rearmost position in order to rack the slide and chamber the round after loading the magazine? Or is this just for safety's sake?

There is absolutely no reason to have the trigger in the rear most position for loading.
For disassembly it must be in this state.
For storage this would keep all tension off of the trigger spring and the firing pin spring.
I will re-state there is no reason for this for loading. I didnt go get a manual from the safe, however I looked at one on line and found no mention of this. Here is a link to the manual I looked at.
