As a rule of thumb I never carry a loaded gun in the house. And to decock it you can also do it the old fashions way, just hold the hammer, pull the trigger and let her down slow.

The first part is good. But sorry the second part defies the purpose of the decocker.

The d-cocker is the digest safety feature of the sig p22* line.

Don't ever do this on your sig or you going to get hurt or hurt someone if your going to carry it and have a round chambered use the de/cocker to drop the hammer safely so the gun will be in double action.

What's wrong with my way, sure I usually use a decocker, but this way works just fine, just get a good grip on the hammer.

because you can easily shoot yourself or someone else. if your doing something as stupid as pulling the trigger to lower the hammer and shoot yourself you deserve it. if you shoot omeone elsebecause your stupid you would best be served by being locked up for the safety of the rest of us.

can you imagine how you would feel if you oopsed and shot someone??

thats why its a terrible idea

Don't do it in your dang house! Just point it in a SAFE direction OUTSIDE. People have been deckocking like that since the single action revolvers!

I trust the decocker on my P226 1000%.

And I always keep it pointed in a generally safe direction when decocking. The only damage dealt by a malfuction would be to my ears and possibly some home furnishings.

If you can't reduce the risks to that level, you probably shouldn't own a gun.
