Re: Safety Modification?

Thanks all. I don't at all mind the auto "safety" feature. It was present on a Beretta Silver Pigeon I used recently, and I liked it. Didn't miss a shot due to that feature. But removal of the rod, if I understand it, would still leave me w a 3-position slide, and two makes more sense to me. I actually spoke w Bill Schwartz yesterday about this, and his approach is to leave the rod but internally block the slide from ever going to the rear "fire" position. With the limits of the "safety" itself being a significant safety hazard in and of itself, I'm thinking having three positions is only adding the possibility of confusion to the mix. I realize there are divergent opinions about what (if anything) to do with this matter.
