    I wouldn't count on it.
    To produce the LCP II with an additional safety (they consider the trigger lever constitutes one), would seem to me to be an open-door to be sued for the LCP II(gen I).

    Wouldn't it, though? Of course, if Ruger could successfully argue that the trigger lever safety in the LCP II is a REAL safety, they could then claim that more safeties are better than fewer safeties and they made the choice to add a manual safety at the behest of their customers. Of course, a substantial number of Ruger customers would actually have to request that a manual safety be added to the LCP II to support that claim. What do you think the odds are of that happening?

    My sense is that once a gun manufacturer decides to incorporate a trigger lever safety in a model at the expense of a manual safety, there's no turning back. At that point, it would seem that they have made the decision to the ride the horse in the direction he's going and compromise safety for shootability in recognition of market demands.

    This much is certain. Large groups of people can make just as bad mistakes as small groups of people can.

    I agree. However, I gave up years ago on trying to save the world, as much as I would like to. I don't mind giving my opinion. I'm not upset or worried if someone does not want to listen to or follow that advice.

    They certainly have experience there!

    I agree. Problem is, safety isn't intuitive . . . laziness is. As a result, safety is something that needs to be kept front and center all the time. Some folks may chafe on that, but that's their issue . . . not mine.
