Just curious: I know on the S&W M&P pistols, the safety lever can be very easily removed as it is just a physical block type system. It's not at all integral to the mechanics of the trigger system. What about the safety on the Ruger? Can it, too, be removed in a similar manner? Or is it thin enough and non-intrusive enough to just leave the safety off and not worry about removing it?
