    I enjoyed your article but have to disagree with you about magazine safeties. Along with the S&W most modern Star pistols have the magazine safety. The following website is dedicated to the Star line of handguns. I am posting the magazine information page from the site. Star Firearms : Information on Magazines

    I'm on the fence regarding trigger type for my first CCW. I really like the idea of the LEM and I think DA/SA would be very good as well. I understand LEM but for DA/SA (like a Sig P229), if I insert a full mag and don't charge the pistol will it fire? I assume not but I want to confirm. If not, then I'd need to insert mag, charge pistol, then decock to leave the pistol in DA mode for CCW? Thanks.
    My guarantee: "If I don't stop you with my first three shots the next one's free."

    I'm unaware of any pistol that will fire if there isn't a round chambered (charged).

    But a DA/SA definitely won't.

    And yes, you have the sequence correct for a traditional Sig; insert mag, charge pistol, decock and holster.

    Great article. What are your thoughts regarding the P99AS trigger if you're familiar with them?

    Frustrations with learning a DA/SA trigger is why I traded in my CZ75 for a 1911.

    Call me paranoid, but I always carry my guns in suitcases like this. The exceptions are revolvers, I'm always sure of them, I don't know how such a mechanism can fail at all.
