is there a pistol with these features?

This is a discussion on is there a pistol with these features? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Ironic isn't it, when an safety device is unsafe in it's own operation. Something wrong with that picture IMHO....

    I assume you are referring to the Taurus warnings.

    The Taurus manual also says not to engage the lock when the striker is cocked. This is a CYA thing for Taurus. The internal lock disengages the striker from the sear when it is enabled while the pistol is charged(cocked).(ETA: After a little investigating, it turns out that the striker is actually disengaged from the sear when the lock is deactivated.) A block is extended down from the slide to stop any slide travel, the striker returns to it's static state and the trigger mechanism is in place to stop the forward momentum of the striker. If for some reason the trigger mech. is out of place or the striker were to skip over the trigger bar, it could result in igniting a chambered round. The lock was not designed to be a decocking device, it just happens to do so when activated. so to avoid liability for the outside chance/Murphy happenings, Taurus says don't use it as anything but a lock.

    I don't use the lock at all, for any purpose. I just thought that it was useful information.
