    Alright I was holding off from posting anything. Good job being bad influences. Was going to let op be.

    Pfflyer, what’s the fascination with a mag safety? It’s one of the most illogical features ever and what’s more illogical is saying you want it to stop an accident.

    But if you’re truly new to guns I encourage you to search for a good trainer. Develop yourself into a capable gun owner.

    Or better yet, remove all warning labels and let Darwin do his magic!
    Ultimately yes. I mean if someone is new they need help being trained and correctly.

    This isn’t a large piece of equipment that needs an e-stop. It’s a gun. It’s for putting the pew in bad guys. I strongly dislike features that add to interfering with how fast a weapon is deployed.

    This sentence of your's is gold:

    Says all that needs to be said.

    I am a beginner and don't want any accidents.
    1. Welcome to TGT! Lots of information here.
    2. You did ask a valid question but did not really get good answers, mostly snark. Get used to it. It's the Internet. Don't let it discourage you.
    3. As a beginner to any aspect of life, seek training. Especially with deadly tools such as these. Training makes you safe. Not a bunch of safeties on the gun.
    4. To explain the pushback here, magazine disconnect is not a popular feature because it goes against common standards in this aspect of life. And anything that is non-standard can cause a lot of trouble in a high-stress situation. Look at Harley's non-standard turn signal and horn button placement. After riding motorcycles for 40 years, I had to learn how to operate those non-standard buttons without thinking. SMF

    Again, welcome to TGT. Hope we haven't scared you off yet.

    OP asked a question. I gave him an answer to his question. A lot of other people gave him unsolicited commentary. Sounds like a normal day at TGT.

    I like manual safeties, especially safeties that turn the gun "OFF" for administrative handling. I prefer guns like the Beretta 92 and Ruger P90 for those reasons. I dislike Glock-style pistols for their lack of manual safeties. Other people disagree. That's okay.

    If OP wants a magazine safety, that's his choice. No need for all the guff.
