Thanks. Just checked Bud’s and everyone loves them. I saw two models over there, one of them described as having “No mag safety,” which is by far the most popular model of the two offered by Bud’s. Only five dollars difference in the prices, too, just peanuts.
But magazine safety? What the heck is that? I have a bunch of pistols and none of them have a “magazine safety;” you just push a button and the magazine drops out. Going to the gun shop in a few days anyway. I’ll check ‘em out while I’m there. They look real good. Not too expensive either. I already own a Browning .40, but another .40 definitely wouldn’t hurt! Thx!
California passed legislation in 2006 requiring magazine disconnects on all new handgun designs sold in the state starting January 1, 2007, which has resulted in their widespread availability in other jurisdictions as well. The arguments in favor of a magazine disconnect are that if the gun cannot fire without a magazine, then an accidental discharge can be prevented if someone removes the magazine but forgets that a round has been chambered. Also, if losing possession of the firearm is imminent, the operator can render the firearm useless by removing the magazine.Leave it to liberals to screw up a wet dream. Never saw more improbable reasons applied to a gun safety "idea" in my life. Don't know who said it but they were 110% correct: "Liberals don't have ideas, they only have brain farts."
I guess there's two ways to look at it under some circumstances - if in a fight for the gun and you win, you might not be able to fire it///if you lose, but manage to dump the mag, the perp can't fire. I prefer to be able to fire, mag or no mag (my revolvers work just fine without a magazine...)
