We both train every year with our local Sheriffs department, and trust me, they are very serious about safety. If they even hinted that my pistol is less safe than one with a decocker, I would trade it in in a heartbeat. They have taught me that the chances of a ND with my pistol is the same as any other pistol. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire. Simple as that. Now I understand that there can be issues, such as clothing catching on the trigger if doing a sloppy reholster to concealled position, but I think you lessen even this chance for an ND with continued practice and training.
    Just my two cents...
    My Ruger has a manual safety. I see the point of PASSIVE SAFETIES. Technology works as long as you are the main safety. I think I could handle my firearm south manual safety HOT.

    Absolutely. Beretta PX4 Storm Type-F. SA/DA with safety/decock lever. Subcompact in 9mm or .40 cal. Fits nicely in pocket or IWB. Very nice gun. I recommend at least looking at one before making a decision.

    I agree wholeheartedly with your suggestion of a good weapon to buy, but I'm still not sure that the OP wasn't specifically ruling out a decocking lever for some (inexplicable) reason. I wish he would post again to clear that up.

    You are on the cusp of getting it right. FN5.7X28. Light, 20 rounds, incredible velocity and accuracy at long distance, lo recoil. Just love it and luckily sill have around 1000 rounds to practice with and a special box of extra special home defense that will splatter pretty good.
