    Scenario: Round is chambered, hammer is back. Exernal safety ENGAGED.

    If the USPc were dropped, is it possible for it to discharge? If so, what are the necessary circumstances?

    If I'm not mistaken the trigger also has to be pulled back or the hammer can't fall past a half cock position.

    There's no way for the firing pin to strike the primer without the trigger being pulled, no matter how you drop it.

    I carry my USP cocked and locked and that is the least of my worries.

    It won't discharge, unless you drop it on something that turns the safety off and then pulls the trigger.
