    PT58HC Safety problems

    I recently purchased a PT58HC. This gun has an ambidextrous safety, and I carry it cocked and locked. On two occassions I have removed the gun from a universal belt slide holster (can't find anything else to fit it), and found the safety off! I have considered removing the right side lever, but am unsure if the it's the left or right side lever causing the problem. What would you guys and gals recomend. I do need the help badly.

    how hard is it to take the safety off if there isn't much resistance then you may need to take a file and where the detent pin rests on the safety lever make a little notch that allows the safety to engage and disengage with a little more pressure,one thing you gotta realise is just cause the thumb safety got bumped off you still have to depress the grip safety and pull the trigger at the same time for the gun to fire.

    It is a DA/SA, therefore I'd strongly advise you stop cocking the hammer if the safety is unreliable. Rely instead on the DA trigger. Then use the safety too if you want, or are able.
