Hello all! I have a question about the (I don't know what it's called) "pump safety" on my Maverick 88. It's a pain to push with the thumb after each shot, and I'm wondering if it is necessary or if it can be "defeated" easily. I don't want to remove it if it is important for safety or the proper function of the firearm, but if I don't need it I would like to find a way to do without it. As I watch other people shooting their shotguns, I can't see that they are positioning their hands or the shotgun the way I would have to in order to engage the release. Anyway, it's just a little notch behind the safety button on the left side of the trigger group. I'm sure you guys know what I mean. Sorry I don't know the proper name! Thanks for your help!
