Default Derringer

I have the same cross bolt safety. I have stopped a friend from closing his Derringer after loading it because he wasn't aware of that it must be in half cocked position, hammer resting on the cross bolt safety. If the hammer is in the fired position, one of the firing pins will be protruding and there is a danger of the round being discharged as the barrel is closed.
