You are correct. Not only is the USAF not military, from the "friendly fire" (which isn't) incidents I'm not even sure that they're on our side.I must not have been in the military (USAF), we carried round chambered safety off except when we were on an installation run by girly men like Army or Navy commanders.
Yes, isn't de-cock, safety off, basically the same way a G is riding?The M9 is safe to carry hammer down. All day long. Always use the decocker and keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire and you will never have an accident. The M9 is one of the safest designs out there. Huge fan of the 92. I have mine converted to a G decocker only version currently, but I have had it setup a few different ways over the years.
Yes the G works as a decocker only, there is no on safe position.Yes, isn't de-cock, safety off, basically the same way a G is riding?
But, if having a safety, it would seem good idea to use it and train swiping it off. Otherwise if safety goes on, you are screwbied.
Most the malfuctions I've ever seen in competitions was related to safeties not being swiped off.
One criticism of the 92 is the slide mounted safety can get swiped on by racking the slide.
With 92 and PPK, I always trained thumb the safety forward when pointing the gun forward. If gun goes forward, safety goes forward.
I've never liked when new guns with safeties were being made (Clinton effect, I bet) that gunowners on forums would say if you don't like the safety just don't use it. Um, no. If I don't like the safety I don't want it on my gun!
