Is the decocker basically an alternative?
YOU are the only safety a firearm should need
Yes, decocking the firearm sets it so you need a full trigger pull and that should be enough.
Putting a safety on a double action trigger pull is unnecessary, the trigger pull is quite long and hard, any pull of it would be intentional.
so why do alot of CCW people carry cocked and locked then?
Because they're carrying SAO firearms
locked implies safety on, which is what you find on a Single Action Only (SAO) such as a 1911.
glocks, XDs and such are considered DAO or double action only. They have no external saftey to switch on and off. Technically the saftey is always on and not disengaged until the trigger is pulled. and thus carrying a glock "cocked and locked" applies to a glock with a round in the chamber, ready to go.
edit: the xd and various others have a grip saftey as well, like on a 1911
Because you touch yourself at night.
Bwahahahaa, nah I'm kidding, it's because Sig assumes that the people who use their weapons are responsible enough to be safe without one.
I carry loaded....
You could say cocked and locked, but since I carry a Glock, my safety is
TO KEEP MY FUCKING FINGER OFF THE GOD DAMNED TRIGGER WHEN I DON'T WANT THE GUN TO SHOOT.
i think some pistols have a extra safety in the trigger where there is a little trigger on the trigger if you know what i mean.
no gym for home?
hence the repeated mentions of the pistols that do in fact have that "little trigger on the trigger" throughout this thread.
