On a Baretta/Taurus 92, you can pop the mag with the safety engaged. Ain't no way in hell to clear the chamber without first disengaging the safety. It's a slide stop that flips up.

What are you talking about? The safety on my 92 has nothing to do with the slide motion. I can open the chamber whether or not the safety is engaged.

No it's not. The "safety" on a B/T 92 is really just a decocking lever. The gun is intended to be carried in double action mode, with the decocking lever up (ready to fire). Regardless, my 92 will clear with the decocking lever in either position.
