I don't like the Hillary Hole either and I wish my 686 didn't have it.
Having said that, my 686 is highly modified (Douglas barrel, Action Job, Wichita Rib Sight), used in PPC matches, and has somewhere between 5 and 10,000 wad cutters down the pipe with no problems with the lock.
I asked the builder why he didn't remove it, and his answer was that it won't cause a problem.
Granted this is a paper punching pistol, but after plenty of action, no lock malfunctions to report.

When you have "removed" the lock and reassembled the gun it will still look stock. The lock hole is still there intact you just remove the internal piece that attaches to it that blocks the hammer. There is no cosmetic change.

Since you will be already working on the internals of your revolver to remove the lock, go ahead and order a spring kit (hammer and rebound springs) from Wolf Springs to make the trigger on your 442 smooth as butter. It is also very simple to do with basic tools. This will make your revolver even better!

Never had a problem with the lock with just shy of 900 rounds thru mine.
Current collection: Too many according to the wife...

If you deliberately fire your weapon in self defense I don't see where the safety would be an issue. If you were involved in an accidental shooting with a disabled safety, I think you can kiss your butt goodbye!
