If there's a hammer, there's room for personal preference.

as long as you KNOW you are doing something for personal preference and counter to the pistol's design...I guess that argument can be used for anything...we do have free will...

I hate it when people take it upon themselves to be lawyers.

Said with love, Bill!

y'know...upon further review...perhaps I am just perpetuating the party line with SiGs...I attended and graduated twice from their armorer course in the early 1990s and this is their reason for the decocker...

I don't take any offense but I should keep my comments to myself and let others do what they like with their property...

...as an LEO, I have told more than one person that "They are the Captain of their own ship" and it's time I listen to my own advice, let them and I should ****...

Sig obviously knows how to design a pistol. Use their tool the way it was designed and dont think twice. Its more of a proper training concept than anything else.

Nothing wrong with promoting safety. A little education never hurt anyone.

If you'd mentioned being a Sig armorer from the start, I'd have been less vocal, honestly. There's something about an adversarial exchange with someone who knows what the heck they're talking about that makes a person a little more open-minded...

Decocker is one reason I wanted a Sig, I like my glocks but I still love a DA/SA pistol and the decocker on the Sigs is the best out there.

there certainly is, until the individual is asked what were factors leading up to the ad.

I personally know someone who had an AD that was a direct result of using the decocker on his brand-new Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm. Granted, it's not a Sig and doesn't operate the same way...but for me, experience > theory.

i'm not familiar with the beretta & you're losing me here.

your comment, "If there's a hammer, there's room for personal preference".

are you advocating thumbing down the hammer on a sig with a decocker when sig manuals explain pretty well why it should be used?

I'm advocating that no one EVER assume that just because something is designed to be safe means that it's 100% safe.

I really get irritated when someone says Option A is the ONLY SAFE WAY. It's just not true. The only safe way to let a hammer down is in a direction away from yourself and others. How you do it once the muzzle is in a controlled direction is a matter of experience and personal decision.

Gun manufacturers also package a lock with the firearm, and the instruction manual says that the lock should ALWAYS be used. How many of us actually use them? I thought so. Just because it's highly recommended - or even the best option - doesn't mean it's the only option. A firearm instruction manual indemnifies the manufacturer looooong before it saves lives.

Incidentally, does everyone here use their turn signal when changing lanes?
