As always I appreciate the feedback from the community.
I do not own a 226 but I do have a sigsp2022 .40.
The gun is pretty safe and has passed drop tests ....... Etc.
As far as engaging the decocker in a safe direction you should continue doing that a GIVEN.
Guns are made reliable but for sure malfunction can happen you just don't know when and where will it happen.
The mechanism is pretty easy to clean but make sure you maintain it using the proper cleaning and lubing agents. The more you clean the less chances of malfunction.
Clean after every use or at least every 100 rounds.
I hope that helped.
