Mag disconnect safety or no mag disconnect safety
Some guns have a magazine disconnect safety and some do not. Sometimes I think that trick makes sense where if you are in hand to hand combat and you think you are about to be stipped of you gun you can drop the mag and make the gun useless hopefully long enough to counter the attack.
It would be pretty hard to make that call in a situation like that though. If you drop the mag in that circumstance it's kind of like choosing to be disarmed ahead of time.
A gun that doesn't have the disconnect safety at least allows you to get one shot off if you inadvertantly release the mag etc...
I suppose on a gun without a disconnect safety you could always drop the mag and try to fire the chambered round in the safest direction available.
Anyway here is the question I have for those of you with real combat/defense training.
Magazine disconnect safety or no mag disconnect safety, which is best?
This regarding combat scenerios so I'm disregarding the safety "feature" of lessoning the likelyhood of an accidental shooting because someone drops the mag and then treats the gun as if it were not loaded. IMO if anyone is shot because someone removed the mag and didn't know enough to think the gun might still be capable of firing that person didn't have any business handling a gun unsupervised. I'm sure having that feature does save the arms makers a few law suits here and there.
