Hi all,

I just got a new P22q and have a possibly stupid question about using the enclosed cable lock on a double-action weapon. Will it weaken the hammer spring/mechanism to store it secured with a cable lock in the Breach, forcing the hammer to be fully cocked? should I use a trigger lock instead. In If you reply, please assume that a gun safe is not an option right now. Thanks much!

Ol' Fart to the rescue again! Thanks so much, I appreciate it. The cable lock is much more convenient and easier to disengage if needed. All adults in the household...

You could also probably let the slide forward until the cable stopped it and lower the hammer in the process. But use can weaken springs....I read all the time that keeping the hammer cocked does not. Nor a mag loaded with ammo. 1917

Something to consider?
A cable lock can be easily cut with bolt cutters. A trigger lock is a bit more of a beast to get through.

My personal preferance is trigger locks.

Good point, Chuck-Steam. We have no children in our home - ever. A stout trigger lock might discourage a thief from taking the gun, but would certainly make it less likely that we might interrupt a robbery and get shot by our own weapons (if they find the mags and ammo).
