Does your weapon have a "decocker only" or a decocker safety"

If it has the safety, the trigger will not fire it if the safety is engaged. If decocker only, the weapon will fire if the trigger is pulled.

Its a decocker plus safety. One lever to control them all. It supposedly disengages everything. I was wondering if that was true

Decocker/safety.

When the safety is engaged, the trigger will not fire the weapon unless the safety is malfunctioning.

Would that have a possibility of damaging the internals

I had a small 380 of theirs, can't remember the model but it was absolute junk. Couldn't make it through a 5 round magazine without some sort of hiccup. It wasn't just one particular problem either. FTE, FTF, you name it. It was a very simple gun yet Could not function. I've heard a lot of horror stories with them. Anytime you pay $150 for a new firearm, it's a crap shoot. Only bought it cause I was out of town (same state)visiting a friend and we decided to go camping. Gun barely made it home with me, almost ended up in the creek! I ended up making it feed a bit better but still had problems every 50 rounds or so. I couldn't even find the audacity to sell it to somebody. I literally gave it away.

With all that said, I never bothered contacting Cobra Ent. So without having bothered to send It to them, I don't want to give the company to much negative feedback, they very well could have resolved any problems.

Hell no, unless you are a TSA agent checking to see if the passenger's gun is loaded. Everybody remember that incident?
