Right. Because you didn't know there was more than one.

Undoubtedly Mike is from a higher plain of consciousness. So I am always interested in what he has to say. His backwoods common sense and logic, always seems to put our feet back on the ground. Even though he doesn't like to have folks acknowledge him with "likes"

Mike, obviously I was speaking from my own point of view.

We ALL know there are many opinions on what constitutes a desirable pistol, with safeties being but one element. Some won't own a SA / DA, and others demand it. Some prefer poly striker fired, and others metal framed hammer fired. That's just the way it is, and there is no one right way.

For me it's the lack of exposed hammer. I'm perhaps missing something but it appears you'd have to carry this either uncocked and without a rd in the chamber (requiring a two-handed deployment) or loaded and depend on the grip safety.

Here's my .380 from 1919. It's a very cool gun. No screws in it either.

No screws.

Colt had a patent on grip screws for semi-autos.

No, because I knew there would be at least ONE anal-retentive that would want to flaunt his super-superior knowledge. And I was correct

Kissing his butt is a waste of time. He STILL won't put you on his friends list.

That's because Mike has backwoods common sense and logic...

Since Glocks and many other hammerless guns don't have even a grip safety, I don't think it would be much of an issue to carry a round in the chamber.
