I just like the peace of mind knowing all parts are "at rest." Anyone store it with a snap cap in the chamber after dry firing it?

Never enough guns or ammo
nice Walther there Fernando.
i think after you shoot it a few times you're going to like it just fine. i can't remember if you got the 40 or the 9mm, but even the 40 in that pistol is still quite pleasant to shoot, as recoil isn't bad at all.
JJ, some of the gun manufacterers did the magazine safety to help prevent the gun being fired even if a round was chambered and you lost control of the gun. IIRC, i think this was done for LE usage for safety.
