I was reading an article in Combat Handguns last night, it was talking about the safety issue of not using the decocking device on your gun if it has one. If you use the old method of thumb on hammer and finger on trigger, the hammer goes all the way down, allowing it to strike the firing pin and discharge the chambered round if the hammer is struck or lands on the hammer in a fall.
I don't have this feature on my glock, but am looking at diversifying some in the future.
Is there a safety position for the hammer on these guns, My SA frontier scoutt 22 has a first cock, keeps hammer off the pin, second allows rotating the cyl to load/unlaod and the third is the firing position. I'm guessing this is the same basic process.
I figured this might be something good for others here to know who also have these types of guns and may not have heard of this yet. The article didn't give any specific brands or models.
We can't be too careful.
