I just purchased a P95 and the manual says to only use their trigger lock and not a lock that attaches to the trigger guard. Why is that?

A cable lock like the one Ruger provides has to loop through the magazine well and ejection port, preventing the handgun from being loaded. A triggerguard-mounted lock still allows the gun to be loaded. No manufacturer of such locks recommends this, as there is the possibility of tripping the trigger while installing or removing it. With the heavy DA trigger pull of this particular gun the probability is low, but still possible, e.g., from fumbling with it under stress.

When I use the Master Lock I have to set it with the trigger slightly pulled back. (Gun is unloaded). Would this be bad for the gun if stored like this?

I should probably mention that the gun is decocked and the safety is on so the trigger can be moved rather freely.
